A trip to a country fair and sheep dog trial last weekend has resulted in a cache of photos for posting, first up one man and his dog
Sheepdogs, or as presented here with their Sunday best name of Border Collie are highly intelligent dogs and they are desperate to ‘work’ the sheep (a bored Border Collie is a volatile creature, I once saw one being walked in Central Park in New York, I wondered what sort of life it might lead living in a city, not one like this I suspect.)
It was a perfect autumn day, the show ground is picturesque, if a bit steep (we are a bit short on flat ground, but we manage with what we’ve got.)
all kinds of dogs with all kinds of folk
Some even had their very own pack with them.
Coming up later ferrets, archery, sheep, the odd vulture (not native to the area I hasten to add) and even a local or two, but first I really must get some work done, see ya later.
