Want to move sheep like in One Man and His Dog? Learn the skills to work a sheep dog with a farmer and his wife on their traditional Welsh hill farm in the Black Mountains near Crickhowell.
Seeing a dedicated sheep dog moving a flock of sheep around the fields is an amazing sight. You’ll accompany Brian on his routine on the farm – checking the sheep, feeding and moving them around the fields with the help of one of the farm’s three working Welsh border collies. You will learn the traditional sheep dog working commands and have a go at using them to work the dogs yourself. The event ends with drinks and home made cake in the farm kitchen and a chance to chat to about farming in the stunning environment of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Times: 10 – 1 pm – venue near Crickhowell. Children of age 17 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult. Sorry no visitors’ dogs as we are a sheep farm and the surrounding common land is freely grazed by sheep. As this is a very small group experience on a working farm, bystanders or spectators are not permitted.
