Man’s best friend
Sheep need to be constantly monitored and checked for disease and damage. This means rounding them up from the high pastures on a regular basis. A good dog is vital for this and farmers vie with each other to breed and train the best dogs. Competitions are held throughout the year and are a joy to watch. This dog at the Nantgwynant meet on June 17th was set a big task in this huge field but didn’t quite make it in the allotted time. There is a North Wales Sheepdog Society and the next trials are at Llanfairfechan on August 12th and 13th. See www.northwalessheepdogsociety.org.uk.
