Sheep Dog Demonstrations

More than a demonstration, Dave and Colin Kennard and John Simmons put their border collies to work and explain how important herding dogs are to livestock owners and what the dogs are thinking. Learn to appreciate the dogs’ uncanny ability to anticipate, and laugh at the antics of farm stock that want to go anywhere other than where the farmer points. Come watch the Sheep Dog Demos each day at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m.
