ONE of the national stars of the shepherding world has taken on the judging at this year’s Dovedale Sheepdog Trials, which started today.
Katy Cropper, pictured here with Tsavo, is the only female winner of the One Man and His Dog competition, and a nationally-renowned sheepdog trainer and judge.
More than 100 competitors will take to the field with their dogs this year, rounding up the sheep under the watchful eyes of the judges.
The event will continue tomorrow from 7am until 7pm.
