King of His Hill…


Thor is an Akbash, livestock guardian that we rescued about 9 months ago.  When we first brought him home he was pretty neglected and shy of everyone.  He has settled quite nicely here, on the farm and does a fabulous job of guarding all the critters here, including the ducks and chickens.  He is pretty much a love bug now and loves to hang out on top of a small compost pile in his pen.  Guess he kind of has a vantage point from up there and can see all around…

Hayden with Thor, I think he was about to fall over from all the love pats.

Feels so good!
