Hands down my favorite thing about labor day weekend- the sheepdog trials. This event has become one of the top sheepdog trials in the world and these dogs are simply amazing! The dogs have 13 minutes to bring 5 wild sheep 700 plus yards down the side of the mountain through a series of gates. They must separate the sheep into 2 and 3 and still maintain control of both groups- then to finish they herd them into a gated corral. The dogs do this only by listening to their owners whistle commands from the bottom of the hill. Its awesome- every year the festival gets bigger and bigger and we enjoy it more and more. After all we are slightly partial to sheepdogs!
