One man and his dogs - David Kennard is the James Herriot of shepherding
'There is no good flock without a good shepherd, and no good shepherd without good dogs.'
These age-old words of wisdom have always guided Devon sheep farmer David Kennard. But as he battles to save his farm from extinction, they resonate more loudly - and unexpectedly - than ever. The storm clouds are already gathering when Borough Farm suffers a succession of potentially disastrous setbacks. Suddenly the Kennard family's idyllic life is under threat. Will David achieve the seemingly impossible and make a living through farming sheep in the 21st century
As he fights for survival, David knows he will be able to rely - as always - on his faithful sheepdogs but even he is surprised when the dogs prove to be Borough Farm's secret weapon...
David Kennard's name has become a familiar one in the nation's media, featuring in the Mail on Sunday, Daily Telegraph and The Times as well as on the BBC's 'Countryfile', Radio Four and on his bestselling video and DVD, The Year of the Working Sheepdog. His first book, A Shepherd's Watch, was a Sunday Times bestseller. He lives in North Devon with his wife Debbie, three children Clare, Laura and Nick - and, of course, his dogs.
