Extreme Shepherding

by Brenda Dayne on March 18, 2009

So Emris and Gerry and Bernard and Rob were just standing around one day, and Emris looked at the bunch of LED lights Rob was holding, and Gerry looked at the sheep, and Bernard says, “Are you guys thinking what I’m thinking?”

I love Wales. So much.

Thanks, Zabet!

Lots of debate over whether this was a real display of ordinary shepherding, or a mix of live action and computer wizardry. Here, the shepherds speak for themselves.

I am still chuckling! I watched it at least 4 times. Thanks for sharing the funnies 😉

Someone else just sent me this link, and my first thought was to send it to you, but when I got to your site to send you the link, here it was!!! Great minds think alike..

Like Cindy, I rushed to your site the moment I saw this – only to see someone had beaten me to it.
Can I ask – some sites are inevitably posting comments saying this is a fake, and that sheep dogs can’t possibly have this level of control. Surely someone out there has seen more sheepdog trials than I (not hard) and can confirm that this is genuine shepherding?

We all have laughed so much. What a great effort, I just love the dogs and sheep with their lights!!!!

It IS awesome… though not real. See what Catherine Friend has to say on the topic here: http://www.hitbyafarm.com/2009/04/dont-believe-it-so-i-must-take-minute.html
