The sheep dog has proven to be invaluable when trying to move or direct sheep or cattle from one location to another. Their ability to quickly learn and understand directions enables these dogs to complete a task in half the time it would take several people. Added with loyality and hard work, you have a welcomed addition to any farm and family. The Common Ground Fair will be located on 294 Crosby Brook Road in Unity.
