Sheepdog & Falconry Display at Borough Farm

 

David Kennard – Sheepdogs

David and his family have farmed at Borough Farm for 25 years. During that time sheepdogs have been a major part of David’s life, not only as invaluable assistance around the farm and on the rugged Mortehoe coastline where some of the flock graze, but also in the shows that Borough Farm hosts throughout the summer. David’s sheepdogs are equally at home  working far into the distance, or marshalling the hilarious antics of the ducks that form a part of the Wednesday evening shows. The Borough farm sheepdogs are also famed for the TV series ‘Mist-Sheepdog tales’ that David created, and ran on Channel Five for 10 years.

Martin Simkins – Falconry

Martin has been flying his birds of prey for 20 years, and spends the summer months performing shows across the South West of England. His team of display birds range from the amazing ‘Stig’ a falcon of breath taking speed, Charlotte the majestic Bengal Eagle Owl, Harris Hawks, Kestrels and the delightful ‘Boris’ the Little Owl, a rarely seen native to North Devon. Martins birds are great performers in the ring, and after the show there’s a chance to see his birds up close, and to take photos on their perches.

David and Martin look forward to seeing you at one of the displays this summer.
