Sam the dog wins ‘One Man and His Dog’ trophy with Erin.
J says: Well done to Erin aged 16 and Sam the sheepdog aged 5 won the junior-and-senior sheep herding contest to win the trophy for Wales, beating England, Scotland and Ireland.
Erin’s the fourth generation of farmers in her family and hopes to take over the family farm in Bala, North Wales. To win the competition, she was teamed with an experienced shepherd, Kevin Evans. Sam was a late replacement for Erin’s other dog which got ill.
Marco says: ‘I couldn’t sit still to watch last night! Kept having to check out the TV. Sam did a marvellous job.
