Zip demonstrates what a good dog can do

July 9, 2014

An Australian kelpie named Zip entertains the crowd at Oskie Rice Arena while herding sheep to their pen following the Sheep Riding finals of the Makawao Rodeo on Sunday afternoon in Olinda. The 10-year-old dog, owned by Ulupalakua Ranch cowboy Ryan Wendt, was one of the four-legged stars of the rodeo while being directed by whistles and voice commands from Wendt. “A lot of folks don’t understand what a good dog can do,” Wendt said. “They’re a great tool for us on the ranch. We couldn’t do it without them. She’ll work cattle, sheep, goats, elk; she’ll even herd kids around if you ask her to.”
