This was one of our best tours. The time with the animals was great, we saw sheep and new lambs up close, so, so cute. The two ponies were very interesting on a standard Shetland and the other a miniature Shetland. Learned the standard Shetland are really bred for the climate and are very hearty in the climate. They can pull twice their weight. The herding dogs were the best, seeing how they naturally take to their work and how much the enjoy it. Its also amazing how the handler communicates to the dog on what he wants done. Also learned about peat and it importance to the environment.
