The trial was over


The top Border Collie trial in the world, the International Sheep Dog Society (ISDS) Finals. If you have the chance to travel to this event you’ll see the top Border Collie handlers and some of the finest working sheepdogs to be found anywhere. You can go onto the International Sheep Dog Society (ISDS) site to check out dates for these sheep dog events. Remember the Nationals are held in the fall of the year and cover a month and a half and then the ISDS finals are held in early to mid September. Working Border Collies at their finest from the home of the working sheepdog.

Saturday evening is usually my chance to relax and this year I was asked to join a group of Border Collie handlers for supper. It was a very pleasant evening!

Sunday is spent looking for some scenery to go with the program. Last year I went up to Jock Welsh’s farm, outside Stranraer, and filmed him on the hill, working his dogs. This year, although I tried, everyone was taking the day off and so I just went and traveled around looking for some landscape footage before heading back to England and my trip back home.

In the days following I spent my time sipping on a good pint of beer while writing up my notes and continuing on with my script, logging some of the video tapes and marking and securing them, and then organizing all my production equipment for the security at the airports. And then the boring trip back to HQ.
