Stunned Farmer Finds Flock Of Sheep In Her Home Thanks To Overzealous Sheepdog Puppy –
A young sheepdog lent new meaning to the phrase “bringing the sheep home” after he led a flock straight into a farmer’s home.
Rosalyn Edwards was working in her kitchen on Wednesday 25 October, when she suddenly started to hear strange noises.
When she turned around she was stunned to discover her Border collie puppy, Rocky, had proudly led nine sheep into her house.
The seven-month-old sheepdog-in-training had taken advantage of an open gate to usher the sheep through into the Edwards’ home in Devon via the back door.
Mrs Edwards, 40, said: “I thought it was funny at the time, but then there was quite a lot of wee, poo and mud everywhere. It took me a little while to clean it all up.
“My son and husband had gone out into the field, and the gate was left open. Rocky got them out and led them to the house.
“I was in the kitchen and heard a noise. I turned around and the sheep were just standing there. There were about nine of them.
“I took the children into another room and then tried to guide the sheep out.”
Mrs Edwards later posted a video of the livestock melee in her home on Facebook, in which she and her husband, Andrew, 41, can be heard trying to shoo the animals from their home.
Mrs Edwards added: “Rocky did look quite pleased with himself, but he’s going to need more training.
“He brought a whole new meaning to ‘bringing the sheep home’.”
