A video conversation recalling some of the stories and characters of sheepdog trials gone by.

David Brew, Alan Martin and Ned Kennaugh here discuss the greatest handler they ever knew, the most cussed sheep ever competed with, what makes a good sheepdog, the time the judge fell asleep and more.

This was filmed with thanks to the Manannan Sheepdog Trials.
