Extreme Shepherding

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.

    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?
