Sheep Herding Demonstrations

Sheep herding is an important part of Scottish history and culture.  Sheep herding in Scotland may have started as far back as 4,000-5,000 years ago not only to produce meat, but also to produce additional products such as milk and wool. Specially trained sheep dogs are very commonplace in Scotland where the use of such dogs goes back to the 19th century. Come and watch live demonstrations of the art of sheep herding using border collies, or as the Scots call them, tykes.
