Excellent morning trip to Killary Sheep farm. The owner, Tom, was extremely welcoming and Roy the sheepdog was so well trained. It was great to see the sheepdog demonstration and to gain an insight into farming life, and being able to bottle feed the week old baby lambs was a heart warming experience. Thoroughly recommend a trip here if you're in the area!
Wonderful experience! Tom showed us how Sylvie (sheep dog) herds the sheep. Amazing! Takes a sheep dog 3 yrs to learn! My Granddaughters were able to pet & bottle feed the 1 month old baby sheep. Tom explained the business & we discussed his 4 generation of being in the sheep business. I would highly recommend everyone stopping by for this unforgettable experience! Thanks Tom!
