Gabriel was a great host and fun to chat with. Great sense of humor...and he's single. His dogs are great and he explained why many sheep have what looks like paint markings on their neck or back - it's like branding.

This was a perfect example of a working sheep farm. The person doing the demonstration as an expert in giving the sheepdogs whistles to round up the sheep in small groups or the herd. He also did vocal signals.

Fun to see the dogs work, and to see the difference between the way they work (the older "creeper" and the younger runner). Just as interesting was all the information that the owner, Gabriel, provided on raising and training the dogs, how much trained dogs are worth, etc. An unexpected extra were the famine cottages on the property which gave an idea of how people lived during the famine.

We drove from Killorglin area for this and it was well worth it. The drive is spectacular and the dogs were very well trained. The demo had bits of humour and we loved seeing the dogs work. There were a pleasure to see. Would go again.

The demonstration was educational, fun, and worth the trip. Dogs responded quickly to all the commands, and their handler informed us of different sheep breeds and whether they were used for meat or wool.
Very interesting.
