Sheepdogs are trained to obey their master's every word. So when farmer David Kennard decided one of those words would be "Spring", his dogs did not hesitate. They rounded up the flock on the hills of Mr. Kennard's Devon farm and, with a little help from their master, created a picture that reminds us that, whatever the weather, this is officially the first week of Spring. The scene did call for a careful scattering of feed to make the sheep form themselves in the shapes of the six letters. It took 3 hours and 3 border collies to create. Happy Spring and up with farmland creativity.
