    Sheepdog herding is a tactic used by Shepherds to help them herd sheep and it is also a competitive dog sport. This tactic includes a Border Collie giving the sheep “The Eye” which is a direct stare used to intimidate the sheep while herding. A sheepdog is an integral part of farming culture and we want our passengers to experience this on our tour. Passengers will be able to see just how much a sheepdog can help its master and help them cut the work time in half with their help. The sheepdog possess qualities like loyalty and being hard working which makes a sheepdog the perfect farm companion.

    Duration: 45 minutes
