Rydal Sheep Dog Trails

What a great day it was yesterday for the Vale of Rydal Sheep dog tails and Hound show! Sunny all day, great crowds. A wonderful Lake District tradition.

Fo those who don't know, the dogs have to follow the shouts and whistles of their owners to get a group of sheep ( often fairly badly behaved sheep) though a series of gates. All the commands mean soenthing to the dog- turn right, left , lies down, slower, faster... its wonderful to watch!

If you want to see it, its always the second Thursday in August.
