WORLD TRIAL PRESIDENT / LLYWYDD TREIALON Y BYD

Elin Jones AM — Minister for Rural Affairs, National Assembly for Wales I take great pleasure in welcoming you all to the Land Rover World Sheepdog Trials, Food and Country Festival.

Here in Wales, rural life and in particular the art of shepherding, is an integral part of our heritage. It is therefore a great honour for Wales to be the 2008 hosts of this event in the spectacular setting of the National Trust’s Dinefwr Park. I am delighted to be the President of the event.

I think you’ll agree that there is plenty to look forward to over the next four days as 240 top handlers and dogs battle their wits against each other in the challenge to become the next World Champion. With competitors arriving from as far afield as Australia, the Faroe Islands and the United Sates, there is a truly global feel to this competition.

The Food and Country festival section offers us the opportunity to showcase the world renowned food and crafts of Wales and I am confident you will be pleasantly surprised by the range of produce on offer. The Tesco sponsored Kitchen Theatre with celebrity chefs Gareth Richards and Nick Davies promises to be a fine source of inspiration in using our Welsh ingredients. This is a world class event and I am grateful to everyone involved for making it happen.

All that is left to say is that I hope you will enjoy yourselves and return to visit us soon.

Elin Jones AC - Gweinidog Materion Gwledig, Llywodraeth Cynulliad Cenedlaethol Cymru Mae’n bleser mawr gen i eich croesawu chi i gyd i Dreialon Cŵn Defaid y Byd, Gŵyl Fwyd a Chefn Gwlad Land Rover.

Yma yng Nghymru mae’r bywyd gwledig, ac yn enwedig y grefft o fugeilio, yn rhan annatod o’n treftadaeth. Mae hi felly yn anrhydedd mawr i Gymru fod yn croesawu’r digwyddiad hwn yn 2008, yn lleoliad ysblennydd Parc Dinefwr sy’n eiddo i’r Ymddiriedolaeth Genedlaethol. Rwyf wrth fy modd i fod yn Llywydd y digwyddiad ac rwy’n falch iawn bod Llywodraeth Cynulliad Cymru yn ei gefnogi. Rwy’n credu y byddwch chi i gyd yn cytuno bod llawer i edrych ymlaen ato dros y pedwar diwrnod a ddaw wrth i 240 o’r bugeiliaid a’r cŵn gorau ymgiprys i fod yn Bencampwr nesaf y Byd. Gyda chystadleuwyr yn teithio o wledydd mor bell ag Awstralia, Ynysoedd y Faroe a'r Unol Daleithiau, mae hon yn gystadleuaeth fyd-eang yng ngwir ystyr y gair.

Mae adran yr Ŵyl Fwyd a Chefn Gwlad yn gyfle inni arddangos y bwydydd a’r crefftau bydenwog sydd gan Gymru i’w cynnig, ac rwy’n ffyddiog y cewch eich siomi ar yr ochr orau gan amrywiaeth yr hyn sydd ar gael. Mae Theatr y Gegin gyda’r cogyddion amlwg Gareth Richards a Nick Davies, dan nawdd Tesco, yn addo bod yn ysbrydoliaeth i bob un ohonom ddefnyddio cynnyrch o Gymru wrth goginio. Mae hwn yn ddigwyddiad o’r radd flaenaf, ac rwy’n ddiolchgar i bawb sydd wedi cyfrannu at ei lwyfannu. Yr oll sydd ar ôl i’w ddweud yw gobeithio y byddwch yn mwynhau yma ac yn dychwelyd i’n gweld ni eto cyn bo hir.

2008 Land Rover World Sheep Dog Trials


Jim Easton, MBE — Chairman / Cadeirydd ISDS It is a delight for me to welcome you all to the 2008 Land Rover World Sheep Dog Trials, held in this beautiful part of Wales, at Dinefwr Park and Castle. We are indebted to the National Trust for their kind permission to use the estate. The driving forces behind this event have been Mr Meirion Owen and Mr Sulwyn Thomas; their foresight and endeavours, supported by a great team, have brought us all here today. We are all very grateful for the financial assistance of all the sponsors listed in this programme, whose support has enabled it all to take place. The International Sheep Dog Society has played a key role in developing the world sheepdog community. Some 33

years ago I was delighted to be involved in giving demonstrations and training seminars first in the Netherlands and then many other Continental European countries. The purpose was to show the intelligence and working ability of our ISDS Border Collie. From these small beginnings has grown a strong European and World sheepdog community.

I express my thanks to all who have worked hard to bring us here today, and wish the very best to all handlers and dogs at this great World Championship.

The Society and the Local Committee are extremely appreciative of the generosity and substantial financial contributions we have received from the Leading Companies, County and Community Councils, local organizations and individuals. Equally important is the support of Trade Stands to attract a wide audience to this fabulous event at Dinefwr Park.

We express our appreciation for their kindness and support because without their help this trial, quite simply, could not have taken place. Please do visit our Sponsors and Trade Stands who are present and support them on every other possible occasion. Their support of the Society deserves your support for them.

We would also like to thank Llanddarog YFC members and friends for all their hard work and committment to stewarding the gates and parking facilities. To Capel Dewi YFC for collecting the refuse.

Programme Guide Rhaglen Swyddogol

There are 22 Nations represented by the names of handlers and dogs listed in this Programme. All the world’s countries, where there is a recent history of sheepdog handling, were invited to attend. The numbers from each nation were set by the ISDS and broadly indicate the level of activity in each country. There were some that could not travel because of the UK quarantine regulations and other, new sheepdog nations still working up to this standard of competition. Handlers and dogs have been ranked by their home organisation from qualifying competition in 2007. Therefore, for most nations, these represent the best. Country

It is possible that a handler appears twice in the programme – i.e. he or she has qualified two dogs. In addition, every handler, whether entering with one or two qualified dogs, is permitted to enter an Alternate dog, for an additional fee. The reason for this is that after qualifying a whole year is a long time in a dog’s life (perhaps 7 years in human terms) and the dog may not be fully fit or able to travel. Therefore the handler may elect to run his or her Alternate dog, providing they inform the organisers the night before their run. Alternate dogs are listed under the number of the handler’s qualified dog. The commentator will know if an Alternate dog is to run and will announce this. The handlers’ run numbers have been carefully randomized. Each nations’ dogs will be spread across different fields and over the two days. If a handler has two dogs then you will find that they are running on different fields and on different days. Being fully randomized does not mean that you will not find handlers from the same country with adjacent numbers; that does happen and it is due to statistical chance.

After some handler’s names you will see a (C) or a (T). Each nation of five or more has selected a team of five different handlers with a nominated dog; these are typically the highest placed in their nation. These five are entered to a Team Competition in which their points from days one and two are totalled to determine a winning nation. In the following pages: (C) indicates the Team Captain; (T) indicates a Team Member; and (A) indicates Alternate dog.

WARNING

Please do not approach or allow children to approach tethered dogs in the absence of the handler. Whilst sheepdogs are not normally ill-tempered, there can be exceptions to this. Naturally people are drawn to stroking a dog, however please ask the handler first and do accept the advice of the handler.

The Border Collie Y “Border Collie” The Border Collie is renowned for its intelligence, agility, hard work and innate skills for herding animals. Its skills have been shaped by many generations of breeding. These working dogs have never been bred for appearance.

The working collie dog was refined in the border country of England and Scotland, with the term 'Border Collie' being used after 1900. The first secretary of the ISDS, James Reid, is often credited with having coined the description ‘Border Collie’; whether this is true or not, he was most probably the first to have put the dogs’ breed name in print. The earliest reference to the working sheepdog is from the 1500’s in John Caius’s book, De Canibus Britannicus (Treatise on Englishe Dogges).

James Hogg (1770-1835), known as the Ettrick Shepherd, a shepherd and poet from the Ettrick Valley in the Scottish Borders wrote, "without [the sheep dog] the mountainous land of England and Scotland would not be worth sixpence. It would require more hands to manage a flock of sheep and drive them to market than the profits of the whole were capable of maintaining." There is a saying “You can’t have a good flock without a good shepherd;

And you can’t have a good shepherd without a good dog.”

The pursuit of sheepdog trialling had been well established since the 1870's in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. However, in those days travel was difficult and people were naturally much more parochial, thus it was a locally organised interest.

The first recorded trials involving more than one country were the 1873 Bala trials in Wales, where a Scotsman James (Jimmy) Thomson - took first prize. It was William Wallace of Otterburn, Northumberland at the Hawick Trials of 1883 who is credited with first demonstrating control of the dog "with a mere hiss at hand and a low whistle at distance". Before then, much waving, shouting and barking might have been noticed by spectators. Dogs with the right ‘eye’ for the task were bred and handling skills perfected by those in Northumberland and the Border regions of Scotland. In the 1890’s Adam Telfer, of Cambo, Northumberland bred and trained the dog that is considered the ‘father of the breed’, Old Hemp. It was out of these lands that the ‘Collie from the Borders’ came.

Course for Qualifying & Semi-Finals / Cwrs ar

gyfer Y Rownd Ragbrofol a'r Rownd Gyn-derfynol

The qualifying and semi-finals course involves the handler and dog working together to move five sheep (three unmarked and two marked with red collars) around a course. There are seven components of the course, each of which is scored by the judges. (Note: The following is for guidance only).

1. Outrun: In the outrun the dog is sent out either to the left or right from the post while the handler remains at the post. The dog should not stop until it has reached the point of balance behind the sheep, and should be far enough away from the sheep so as not to disturb them. The point of balance is where the dog will lift the sheep in the direction of the first set of gates.

2. Lift: At the end of the Outrun, the dog will either come to a full stop or merely slow down.The dog will then approach the sheep smoothly, cautiously and steadily, taking control in a firm and quiet manner. The sheep should move in a direct line to the first obstacle (gates).

3. Fetch: The sheep must be brought at a steady pace and in a straight line from the place of lifting to the first gates and thereafter in a straight line to the handler/post. If the sheep deviate from the line they should be brought back to that line as soon as practical. If the sheep fail to go through the gates, no retry of the gates is allowed.

4. Drive: The drive is approximately 450 yards long over a triangular course and consists of two Š Kelvin Broad. sets of gates through which the dog drives the sheep. The drive starts immediately the sheep have passed behind the handler/post and ends when the sheep enter the shedding ring. The sheep are required to go in straight lines between the obstacles and reasonable turns at the post and at both gates are expected. If the sheep fail to go through the gates, a second attempt at either gate is not allowed.

5. Shedding: Two unmarked sheep are shed (separated) in the shedding ring and held away from the remaining three sheep. The dog must show control of the two unmarked sheep, either in or outside the ring. On completion of the shed, the handler must reunite the sheep before proceeding to the pen.

6. Penning: The handler must proceed to the pen, leaving the dog to bring the sheep to the pen.The handler stands at the gate holding the rope and must not let go of the rope while the dog works the sheep into the pen. When the sheep are in the pen, the handler must completely close the gate before releasing the sheep. After releasing the sheep, the handler must close and fasten the gate and go to the shedding ring. 7. Single: The dog brings the sheep from the pen to the shedding ring.

Llandeilo

Llandeilo has been a holy place for as long as Christianity has been in Wales and was one of the main centres from which it spread far and wide throughout Wales. St Teilo, from whom the town's name derives, flourished about 550 AD and was a cousin and contemporary of our patron saint, St David. He must have been one of the most prolific of holy men, for at least 25 places of worship are dedicated to him throughout the Celtic world, including churches in Brittany and Cornwall.

For a while the town was a Royal capital, its castle at Dinefwr being the administrative and military centre of the once powerful Kingdom of Deheubarth in south west Wales. The agricultural wealth of the Tywi Valley made its later landowners powerful and influential in their own right, and a 15th century Llandeilo magnate, Sir Rhys ap Thomas, is even credited with killing Richard the Third at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 to help his kinsman, Henry Tudor, become Henry the Seventh of England. The wealth of Llandeilo, too, attracted the ever-greedy attentions of Henry the Eighth, who beheaded the local landowner to get at his lands in 1531, something Mediaeval Kings had a habit of doing with annoying frequency. Llandeilo is surely the jewel in the Tywi's crown, and there is more than just a long pageant of rich history to this picturesque market town, for modern-day Llandeilo, too, has its attractions. Llandeilo today is still an essentially rural town, surrounded by farm and woodland, hill and dale, where the Welsh language is still in common use. And its shops, pubs and restaurants put many larger towns to shame. The wealth of historic monuments like mediaeval Dinefwr and Carreg Cennen castles make Llandeilo a tourist centre from which to explore the riches of west Wales. From here the Brecon Beacons National Park is but a short drive, as are the equally lovely upland landscapes of the Carmarthenshire Fans and Black Mountain. Drive just a little further and you'll soon have the sandy beaches and cliff walks of the beautiful Gower Peninsula at your disposal. And only an hour's drive away are the equally delightful seaside resorts and bays of Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire. Croeso a mwynhewch — Welcome and enjoy.

2008 Land Rover World Sheep Dog Trials

Drive them straight, drive them true, Is what he has to do, Bring in the sheep for the shed. “Sit” I command, I use crook and my hand, No need for words to be said.

Drive on to the pen, For marks out of ten, He shows he is boss of the day, The sheep safe inside, He sits by my side, Let’s hear what the judge has to say. One man and his dog, In wind, rain and fog, Doing the job to be done. The trial is the thrill, As he shows his skill, Not caring about who has won.

Then it’s back to the farm, With my dog at my arm, To relax, for there’s nothing to say. We played our part, With my hand and his heart, For the joy of competing today.

By John Morgan. Reprinted from the Working Sheepdog News, May 1983, No. 3,Vol. 6.

)

It's no wonder that the Romans made a bee-line for the Tywi Valley after they invaded Britain in 43 AD, for here was not just rich agricultural land and an abundance of game and fishing, but also gold in them thar hills at Dolaucothi, which the Romans turned into one of the largest gold mines of their vast empire. Llandeilo, too, was a target for the Romans who built a fort here, finally uncovered in an excavation by the local archaeology trust in 2005. Traces of two Roman forts have been found under a field in Dinefwr Park. This exciting discovery indicates that the Romans were here in strength, both in the invasion phase and in the more settled times that followed.

The run out is straight, To the lift at the gate, The fetch is correct and on line. He responds to my call, “Bring them home one and all,” He’s workng, he’s happy, he’s mine.

Swe den

The lonely moorland vistas of its birth soon give way to the softer wooded terrain of its upper reaches, until the river, along with several of its tributaries, calmly disappears for a while into the unruffled waters of Llyn Brianne reservoir, one of the largest man-made lakes in Wales. In its more leisurely middle course the meandering Tywi creates some of the most fertile farming land in Wales, passing through such ancient market towns as Llandovery and Llandeilo. Then finally, in its tidal reaches past Carmarthen Town, home to the occasional coracle fishermen, the Tywi meets and disappears into the salt waters of Carmarthen Bay.

Sheepdog Trials How proud do I feel, With dog at my heel, Waiting the command to start. I send him away, Not a word do I say, For he knows exactly his part.

Fl e et (

From this source on the wild and romantic Cambrian Mountains in mid-Wales the Tywi flows south for 68 miles to reach the sea in Carmarthen Bay. But unlike its longer neighbours, the Severn and Wye, who are soon seduced by the siren song of neighbouring England to the east, the Tywi remains loyal to the country of its birth for the whole length of its southwards journey to the sea.

25 Years Ago

There can be fewer towns in Wales more attractive than Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire, sitting proudly on a hill above the river Tywi. And there are fewer valleys lovelier than the Tywi, the longest river which flows entirely through Wales.

Lleol. Gair cyffredin ar ein bwydlenni yma yng Nghymru. A bod yn onest mae’n debyg eich bod chi wedi teithio’n bellach na’ch bwyd. Cymerwch ein cimwch lleol ni – allan o’r môr, i’r gegin ac yn syth i’r plât. Yn Aberaeron golyga hynny daith eithriadol o 108 metr. Mor agos fel y gallai’r cimwch fod wedi cerdded i’r gegin ei hun.

Local. It’s a word that pops up often on Welsh menus. In fact you’ve probably come further than your food has. Take our local lobster. Out of the sea, into the kitchen, onto the plate. In Aberaeron that’s a whopping 108 metre journey. So close the lobsters could walk it themselves.

Sheep Welfare Lles Defaid

Sheepdogs are used by those responsible for flocks of sheep because they offer the safest and most efficient means of carefully moving sheep from one location to another. The sheep are not afraid of a well trained sheepdog; the fact that they sometimes stop to eat grass does show a lack of concern, but the handler would much rather they get to the finish and eat grass there!

Sheepdog trials are carefully managed to ensure both the welfare of the sheep and the dogs. The sheep must be healthy and fully able to undertake the walk around the trial field. When they have finished, after 20 minutes or so, they will be led into a quiet meadow to be with the rest of the flock and continue their normal life. The sheepdogs love what they do. The concentration and obedience they show is a testament to how much they enjoy working with their owner. On a working farm they might be out for six hours with the shepherd, but on a trial field they get only 15 minutes to show how good they are.

The skill of a shepherd or sheepdog handler is to move the sheep as steadily as possible so as to cause no distress. If the sheep become upset they are inclined to run in every direction, and possibly become lost in open country. Therefore, the sheepdog often lies down and apAll trials are supervised by a Course Di© Kinloch Sheepdogs proaches the sheep slowly, and only folrector and the Judges who will ensure lows when they are moving happily in the right direction. that the sheep are healthy and happy, and that the dog is in good health and perfectly behaved. Although very rare an Sheepdog trialling is all about demonstrating that handler occurrence, the Judges will stop the handler and dog, and and dog can achieve this tricky task. Points are gained for send them off the field if any animal looks upset or shows the sheep moving under control, in straight lines and with any aggression. It is the responsibility of the Society and its the minimum of excitement. The skill is in the handler and members to uphold the highest standards of animal care at dog working together as a team, often almost instinctively. all times.

Brief History of the the ISDS Braslun o hanes yr ISDS

The International Sheep Dog Society was founded in 1906 at a meeting in Haddington, East Lothian (Scotland) with the intention of stimulating interest in the shepherd and his/her calling and to secure the better management of stock by improving the shepherd's dog. This is still the objective today, for without a good working dog the work of the shepherd, both on the hills and the lowlands would be impossible. One good dog can do the work of a dozen people, as the shepherd is the first to testify.

The Society’s first secretary in 1906 was James Wilson of East Linton. It is not recorded whether he continued in office until the outbreak of the First World War, but the organization of the Society remained then with that first Haddington Committee. One of their founders, Thomas Gilholm, was probably at the centre of things for the next 30 years since he appears in photographs with senior figures in the 1930’s. When the Society resumed its activities in 1919 after the Great War, it was under the secretaryship of James A. Reid, a solicitor from Airdrie. It is no overstatement to say that sheepdog trialling and today’s Society have been very much shaped by his achievements. Until 1946, James Reid was the driving force for most all that was established.

As well as the Chairmen, who took the lead role, the Society continued to be shaped by a succession of secretaries. Mr T Harry Halsall succeeded James Reid as Secretary in 1946. Harry Halsall was the first to be paid a salary by the Society, but he would also have retained other professional interests – a practice of Secretaries continued to this day. The Society was strengthened considerably by him over the next 12 years until his untimely death in 1958. Harry Halsall is also credited with publishing the ISDS Constitution and printing the first Stud Books. Mr Robert Jarvis took over in 1959 and ran the office for only a few months before finding the duties greater than anticipated, resigning before year-end. This sudden change caused a re-organisation of other responsibilities. The Society had always had the office of National President for each of the nations, but from 1959 much more responsibility for the organisation of trials was given to these National Presidents and their Local Committees. Wilfred Dunn was appointed Secretary in October 1959 and he oversaw continual change in the Society as membership grew to 3,000.

Jim Evans, appointed in 1968, is credited with having put the Society’s finances in order. In 1971 the BBC programme ‘One Man and His Dog’ started and BBC’s Blue Peter had its first Collie, ‘Shep’, a great grandson of J M Wilson’s Cap. Jim Evans was succeeded by Lance Alderson in 1972.

In 1922, the Honorable E L Mostyn, to become Lord Mostyn, was appointed President of the ISDS. He held this position until 1962. Lord Mostyn and James Reid were truly the second generation s Gly ale n Jo ,W nes’ D of founders of the ISDS and are credited with The new Chairman, Ray Ollerenshaw, took on © Glyn Jones bringing the Society through the next period of war, and control in 1977 and directed the appointment of Philip into its second 50 years. Hendry, an insurance broker from Bedford. The new Secretary was a firm leader of the Society, industry and public ofIt was a watershed in 1960 when the Directors, empowered fice for the next 24 years; he became a director of his by a newly published ISDS Constitution, voted for the apinsurance firm, Chesham Insurance, and rose to become pointment of a Chairman. Although Lord Mostyn continued A. P. Hendry CBE and Leader of Bedfordshire County as President for a further two years, annual meetings were Council. Membership was 4,500 and the Society benefited now taken by a Chairman. The first in this post was Captain from periods of sponsorship from Pedigree, Sun Alliance, T M Whittaker of Criccieth who had accompanied Lord Land Rover, National Grid and finally, to be with us in our Mostyn on his visit to Scotland in 1922. From 1963, when Centenary Year, Gilbertson & Page Pet foods. Lord Mostyn resigned from office, the position of President became an annual, honorary award made to someone from In 2001, Council appointed a new Chief Executive - Mr the country holding the International, initially to one of the Norman Lorton, who still holds this office today. Vice-Presidents. (Source: ISDS) Captain Whittaker died in 1962 and the Society entered a new era with the election of ruling Chairmen for three-year periods. Willie Bagshaw of Blyth, Worksop was elected in 1962; then in 1968 it was Archie McDiarmid of Gourock, Renfrewshire; in 1974 Frank Tarn of Brancepeth, County Durham; in 1976 Ray Ollerenshaw of Derwent, Cumberland; in 1988 Norman Seamark of Bedford; and in 1998 Jim Easton of Alnwick, Northumberland. Each Chairman has brought something of his character to the task, and added to the history of the Society.

“In training you have to guide instinct by a superior and kindly wisdom being always careful not to blunt the genius of the pupil by over-direction.” James Gardner, Winner of the first Scottish sheepdog trial, Carnwath circa. 1876

Dinefwr Park and Castle

Dinefwr is one of the most resonant names in the story of Wales. A deeply historic site in a magnificent landscape setting, Dinefwr Park and Castle has been at the heart of culture and politics in Wales for over one thousand years. Land of Power and InfluenceN

White Park Cattle – these have been at Dinefwr for a thousand years and are an emblem of the power of the Welsh Princes.

Dinefwr Castle – linked to the Princes of the ancient Kingdom of Deheubarth, the castle was the 12th Century court of the great warrior and statesman Lord Rhys.

Designed Landscape – The classic designed landscape which was widely visited and admired by the tourists of the 18th century is being carefully restored and is now a National Nature Reserve. A series of way marked paths allow visitors to explore the park and take in the spectacular views. Deer Park – Over one hundred fallow deer graze in the Deer Park, helping to sustain the rich variety of wildlife at Dinefwr.

Ancient Trees – Protected by generations of custodians of the Deer Park, some of the trees at Dinefwr are believed to be 700 years old.

Parc a Chastell Dinefwr

Mae Dinefwr yn un o'r enwau mwyaf disglair yn hanes Cymru. Mae Parc a Chastell Dinefwr yn safle hanesyddol dros ben a leolir mewn tirlun godidog. Mae wedi chwarae rhan ganolog yn niwylliant a gwleidyddiaeth Cymru ers dros fil o flynyddoedd. Tir y Grym a'r DylanwadN

Gwartheg Gwynion y Parc – mae'r rhain wedi bod yn byw yn Ninefwr ers mil o flynyddoedd ac maent yn symbol o rym Tywysogion Cymru. Castell Dinefwr – roedd gan hwn gysylltiadau â Thywysogion Teyrnas hynafol Deheubarth, ac yn y 12fed ganrif roedd yn llys i'r rhyfelwr a'r gwleidydd mawr, yr Arglwydd Rhys.

Tirlun Cynlluniedig – Mae'r tirlun cynlluniedig clasurol yr ymwelwyd ag ef ac a edmygwyd yn fawr gan dwristiaid yn y 18fed ganrif yn cael ei adfer yn ofalus ac mae bellach yn Warchodfa Natur Genedlaethol. Mae cyfres o lwybrau cyfeirbwyntiedig yn rhoi cyfle i ymwelwyr ddarganfod y parc a mwynhau’r golygfeydd godidog. Y Parc Ceirw - Mae dros gant o hyddod brith yn pori'r Parc Ceirw, gan helpu i gynnal yr amrywiaeth o fywyd gwyllt yn Ninefwr. Coed Hynafol – Diogelwyd y rhain gan genedlaethau o geidwaid y Parc Ceirw, a chredir bod rhai o'r coed yn Ninefwr dros 700 mlwydd oed.

Tŷ Newton - Cafodd ei adeiladu yn y 17eg ganrif ac roedd yn gartref i'r teulu Rhys grymus. Erbyn heddiw mae Tŷ Newton wedi'i orchuddio gan ffasâd Gothig Fictoraidd. Profwch fywyd dan y grisiau ym 1912 ac ymwelwch â’r arddangosfa newydd sbon sy’n datgelu straeon Dinefwr.

Sheepdog Trials: History ^ Hanes Treialon Cwn Defaid It has been well documented that the first ever sheep dog trial in the U.K. was Mr. R. J. Lloyd-Price's event at Garth Coch, about a mile from Bala in North Wales on a cold, wet 9th of October, 1873. The competition was in two parts: (a) Penning: 'Entrance to the pen about 6ft. wide, situated about 500 yards from the fold.' (b) Driving: 'Sheep carried to the top of a grass field and turned out in full view, some 800 yards from where the shepherd and his dog, and the spectators were congregated.' The sheep were to be driven towards the shepherd. The time allowed was twenty minutes.

(Source: Einion Thomas, Centenary Trial at Bala 1973 Souvenir Programme).

Although the majority of competitors were Welsh, the trial was won by Scotsman James (Jimmy) Thomson with his dog, Tweed.

Jimmy Thomson was born at Glenwhargen Farm in Scaur Water, Dumfriesshire. According to John Templeton's book, Working Sheep Dogs: Management and Training, 'Jimmy' Thomson shepherded at Glenwhargen until about 1870. In 1872 he married and moved to Merioneth in North Wales as a tenant on Mr. Lloyd-Price's estate. In 1873, Mr. Lloyd-Price organized the trial at Gart Coch won by Jimmy. Residents of Glenwhargen Farm now are Gwen and Stewart Wallace, both shepherds and triallists, who feature in ‘The Last Shepherds’ DVD/book. One of the (if not ‘the’) first sheepdog trial in the world is thought to have been at Dog Match Flat on the outskirts of Wanaka on the South Island of New Zealand in 1867. A newspaper article from the Oamaru Times in 1867, found by Marlborough farmer Ken White, who is participating in this year’s World Trial for New Zealand, records this event.

Oamaru Times, Tuesday, April 30, 1867 (New Zealand) Trial of Sheep Dogs A trial of sheep dogs was held on the station of Messrs Holmes and Campbell, Wanaka, on Wednesday, the 18th instant, which was entered into with great spirit by the shepherds. We also observed a few of the fair sex present. The Trial was only one of many which would be required to show a really good dog for all work, but as this is the first thing of the kind in the district, no doubt another will be added. The entries were numerous, and the running such as would disgrace no man or dog in the country. The following was the trial — “Each shepherd, with his dog, was required to drive three wild hill wethers, turned out of a yard, about a quarter of a mile, put them in a yard of five hurdles, without a wing, and return them to the starting place within 30 minutes. The shepherd doing his best and to the satisfaction of the judges, received a prize of £5, the second £3. The results were: John Craig’s Sweep —1st O. McCallum’s Keilder — 2nd R. Anderson’s May — Commended H. Broughton’s Trim — Commended W. Little’s Bet, Commended Mr B. P. Bayly, Clyde, and Mr T. Allan acted as judge, and Mr H. Campbell as referee, and gave every satisfaction.

The first world-wide sheepdog trials were staged by the ISDS in Bala, North Wales in September 2002 with 160 dogs from 13 nations competing. Welshman Aled Owen and his dog Bob were crowned the winners. In 2005 the ISDS held its second world trials, in Tullamore, Ireland. This time, 241 dogs from 21 nations competed, each having qualified to represent their country. On finals day, it was Gordon Watt and York who stole the show. Did you know? Oeddech chi’n gwybod? Serge van der Zweep from the Netherlands and Jim Cropper from England are the only handlers to have qualified for the finals of both the 2002 and 2005 World Trials. Can they make it a three-peat this year?

Sheep Dogs They knew the hills and the rambling fields Winter storm and summer day The faithful Border Collie dogs That came along my way.

They weren’t in any Union Had never heard the name Just working all day so willingly Put many men to shame.

They never wanted shorter hours Or thought to go on strike A kindly word was their reward And a warm by the fire at night.

All those who work as shepherds Their role in life to fulfill Have a debt to pay to the Collie dogs That gather sheep on the hill.

And someone will say on Judgement Day At the end of the weary miles ‘They went to Church, praised the Lord And ran in the Sheepdog Trials.’

By M. A. McNaught. Reprinted from the Working Sheepdog News, March 1978, Number 1,Volume 1.

You’d see them in the Sheepdog Trials When the shearing days were done Spectators to marvel and applaud As a silver cup was won.

Scotch Collies came from the Highlands There were dogs from the Yorkshire dales Sometimes the Irishmen crossed the sea All the Champions came from Wales 2008 Land Rover World Sheep Dog Trials

2008 Land Rover World Sheep Dog Trials


Course for Finals Cwrs ar gyfer y Rownd Derfynol The finals course involves the handler and dog working together to move twenty sheep (fifteen unmarked and five marked with red collars) around a course. The main components of the course, each of which is scored by the four judges, are as follows: (Note: The following is for guidance only).

1. Outrun 1: In the first outrun the dog is sent out to the right or left of the course, as decided by the Trials Committee before the Trial. All competitors will run on that side (the second outrun will be to the other side). The handler remains at the post. The dog should not stop until it has reached the point of balance behind the sheep, and should be far enough away from the sheep so as not to disturb them. The point of balance is where the dog will lift the sheep in the direction of the first set of gates. 2. Lift 1: At the end of the Outrun, the dog will either come to a full stop or merely slow down.The dog will then approach the sheep smoothly, cautiously and steadily, taking control in a firm and quiet manner. The sheep should move in a direct line to the first obstacle (gates).

3. Fetch 1: The sheep must be brought at a steady pace and in a straight line from the place of lifting to the first gates and thereafter in a straight line to the turn back pole. If the sheep deviate from the line they should be brought back to that line as soon as practical. If the sheep fail to go through the gates, no retry of the gates is allowed. The first fetch is complete when the sheep have reached the turn back pole. The dog having reached the pole will then be redirected for the second packet of 10 sheep.

4. Outrun, Lift and Fetch 2: The dog is turned back for the second packet of sheep on the opposite side of the course to the first packet. The second packet of sheep should be brought through the gate in a straight line towards a point parallel to the first lot of sheep. The dog will unite the two packets of sheep by gathering the first lot and bringing them to the second lot. The sheep must be united before the end of the fetch. At the end of the fetch the handler will move the sheep around the post/behind the handler as close as is practical and in a steady and smooth manner.

5. Drive: The drive is approximately 600 yards long over a triangular course and consists of two sets of gates through which the dog drives the sheep. The drive starts immediately the sheep have passed behind the handler/post and ends when all of the sheep enter the shedding ring. The sheep are required to go in straight lines between the obstacles and reasonable turns at the post and at both gates are expected. If the sheep fail to go through the gates, a second attempt at either gate is not allowed. The handler will remain at the post until the first of the sheep is in the shedding ring.

6. Shedding: Fifteen unmarked sheep are to be shed off (separated) from the five red collared sheep within the shedding ring. The sheep are moved between the handler and his/her dog allowing unmarked sheep to be shed off and leave the ring while keeping the marked sheep in the shedding ring. Manoeuvring to take the 5 red collared sheep off in one go from the other 15 is not permitted.

Should any marked sheep leave the shedding ring and join any unmarked sheep already shed off, the unmarked sheep with which the marked sheep have joined will be brought into the ring and shedding resumed. Once the 15 unmarked sheep have been shed off, the handler may proceed to the pen. Before penning, the handler may use the dog to remove the unmarked sheep to a safe distance so they do not to interfere with the penning of the marked sheep.

7. Penning: The handler must proceed to the pen, leaving the dog to bring the sheep to the pen.The handler stands at the gate holding the rope and must not let go of the rope while the dog works the sheep into the pen. When the sheep are in the pen, the handler must completely close the gate within the time limit. After realeasing the sheep, the handler must close and fasten the gate to conclude their run. No points are awarded for any phase of the work that has not been completed within the prescribed time limit. Time limit = 30 minutes. No extensions.

The results announced during the final will be the total number of Judges Points achieved for each competitor. However, the competition will be decided using a Merit Points calculation.

Calculating Merit Points Each judge will rank each competitor in order of Judges Points from 1st to 16th. The highest placed competitor (i.e. ranked 1st overall on Judges Points) will receive 16 Merit Points. The second placed competitor will receive 15 Merit Points, and so forth. If a judge has awarded identical Judges Points to two different competitors, the Merit Points

are summed and then divided evenly between the two competitors. For example, if the top two competitors receive the same Judges Points, the Merit Points for each competitor would be: 16 (for 1st place) + 15 (2nd place) ÷ 2 = 15.5 Merit Points each. The sum of the Merit Points calculated by each judge determines the overall rankings of competitors. The maximum number of Merit Points is 64.
