Sheep Dog Trial This Weekend In Cooperstown
The 22nd Annual Leatherstocking Sheepdog Trial takes place this weekend at the Robert F. Clark field off Beaver Meadow Road in Cooperstown. According to organizers the Sheepdog Trial is a competitive dog sport in which a dog moves sheep around a field, through gates, and into enclosures as directed by their handler.
The workmanship between dog and handler, and the ever unpredictable sheep, make for a fascinating sport to watch. The trial is Saturday, Sunday and Monday with start times around 8:00 a.m. each day. For more info: leatherstockingsheepdogtrials.com.
