Caora Farm dotted with dogs and sheep
MILLERTON — The scenic hills behind Caora Farm, located at 235 Sharon Road in Millerton, were awakened with the piercing sounds of whistles and sharp commands from dog handlers this past weekend.
That’s when the farm once again hosted its annual Sheep Dog Trials in association with the Dutchess Land Conservancy. The event ran from Friday, June 24 through Sunday, June 26.
The popular trials were held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday.
Spectators from around the Tri-state region were invited to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on, along with something to nibble and drink, as they watched a menagerie of well-trained dogs manage herds of fluffy white sheep along the farm’s lush rolling green hills.
