Patterdale Dog Day 2013
The 110th annual event took place on, what I think is the most beautiful setting, King George V playing field in Patterdale.

The weather was kind to us so I managed to get a few awesome shots as well as stay dry when when I was showing sheep.

This album contains mainly herdwicks as this is what we farm, (at Crookabeck Farm) but a bit of everything can be found in here, from swales, to terriers and hounds to farmers and their dogs!
If you are in the know you might spot the famous "QUEEN OF THE HERDWICKS" or even "HERDYSHEPARD" himself! And some man of tv ... don't know his name!

If you don't know much about farming and sheep shows ... it's serious business having your neighbours see what you think is your best stock! It is all in good humour and competition was tough this year with a large entry of herdwicks in all classes.

Enjoy the album :)

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Some of the sheep on here are for sale:
