We love holding the sheepdog displays during the summer, but to really understand what the Borough farm sheepdogs are capable of, you really need to see them at work in their natural environment. I’m lucky that I farm a flock of sheep which graze over some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the country at the National Trust’s Morte Point.
Every Thursday evening June 1st to September 14th 6pm 2017
(September walks at 5pm)
For the fifth year we’re adding Shepherding Experience walks to our calendar of events. I’ll take small groups (up to 20 people) for a two hour tour of Morte Point. It’s a chance to hear about shepherding life, about the sheep and about the training of the Borough Farm sheepdogs. My top dog ‘Fly’ will be with us for the walk and she’ll give a demonstration of her amazing work on the cliff tops, through the rough terrain and working far into the distance. Fly has become a really top notch sheepdog in recent years, and when she’s on form she is quite simply breathtaking. Zola, Rick and Sweep may also put in an appearance, they are very different types of sheepdog, and have their own individual strengths.
