Irish Farm and Sheep Dog Herding
Connemara, Galway, Connemara and the West, Ireland
Head out for a day on the farm to experience first hand the intriguing art of sheepdog farming and watch in awe as the farmer and pup work together seamlessly as the perfect team to corral the wandering sheep.
Make your way along the Irish countryside to the lush green fields dotted with farms. As the paved roads become dirt, you find yourself surrounded by rolling hills entirely occupied by herds of sheep. Once you are at the farm, you'll head up the hillside with the farmer and his trusted sidekick, the impeccably trained sheepdog. After a brief description of what the dog is going to do and how, the dog sets out to herd the sheep. It truly is a feat of teamwork getting the sheep to the coral safely and efficiently, and after the job is done, the floor is open to questions.
