A tradition dating back to the 1800’s is now popular in Mendocino County.
Every year the Hopland Research Extension Center hosts an annual sheep dog trial. Contestants and their dogs travel to Mendocino county, in hopes of earning points that will help them qualify for the national sheep herding competition. That will take place in October of next year . KRCB’s Adia White went to this year’s event on Nov. 11th and has this report.
