We love holding the sheepdog displays during the summer (sadly we cannot hold these in 2020 due to Coronavirus restrictions), 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.
Thursday evenings from Thursday July 16th to September 3rd 2020
(September walks at 5pm)
For the 6th year we’re adding Shepherding Experience walks to our calendar of events. I’ll take small groups (up to 25 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. This year the sheepdog work will be shared between Sweep and her son Fly. They’ll give a demonstration of their amazing work on the cliff tops, through the rough terrain and working far into the distance. Both are really top notch sheepdogs, and when they are on form their abilities are quite simply amazing. may also put in an appearance.
