Live Sheep Mustering in Skippers

Today, we were lucky again: once in a while, we can observe how sheep are mustered, right there in Skippers Canyon. Our small customer group was amazed by how the 15 Working Dogs organized this huge flock of sheep - we assume there were about 1'000 sheep all together. 3 shepherds directed the dogs to where some of the sheep tried to escape while they controlled the rest of the flock.

We came across them at Charlestown, the former little village in Skippers Canyon. Usually, we see the sheep only from a distance from where they seem to observe us visitors and wonder what we do in 'their' canyon.

Look who's here...
