Dot, Cooper, Spec & Charlotte will amaze you this year with their natural "herding" traits and learned skills! 

The Border Collies at Green Acres Farm are useful in managing their flock, and competing in herding competitions.  They also provide demonstrations showing the importance, usefulness and natural talents of these wonderful canine. These dogs are part of the family, well socialized and love to mingle with the public as long as the sheep are resting. Work is primary in a Border Collie’s life and if there are sheep around the public is ignored.
