  • I value the guardian behavior of our animals as one is charged to protect the other.  
    We have house cats that are free to go outside; barn cats that mostly hang out in the garage; a companion red heeler mutt who rarely leaves my side; and a Maremma livestock guardian dog (LGD).  Baxter, the LGD, has challenged our thinking in owning dogs.  
    He has reinforced that animals follow their instinct above all else.
    He is not a pet, rather a worker that is a critical component to keeping our farm alive.
