The Sheepdog trial is a sport that originated in the 1860s in New Zealand and soon became popular in England, Scotland and Wales. The basic rules require herding dogs to move sheep across a field toward sets of gates and pens at the command of their owners during a timed period. Held annually in conjunction with the Columbus Scottish Festival, sheepdog trial enthusiasts from Indiana and neighboring states showed off their skills Sept. 8 through Sept. 9, 2012, at the Bartholomew County Fairgrounds.
