The New Zealand countryside invokes a visualization… sheep.
Flock Hill Station has thousands of Merino-Romney robust sheep - a part of New Zealand’s legendary farming heritage. One of Flock Hill Station’s key tasks is to muster. This is gathering flocks to longer pasture, herding livestock into yards, rounding up a mob from high country scrub and tussock, the motives are constant. The great kiwi muster cannot be performed without the farmer and his dogs, they come as a package deal. The gang consists of the New Zealand Heading Dog, a working and herding dog that uses its visual prowess, intelligence, and quick movement to control sheep, bred from Border Collies and the New Zealand Huntaway our very own indigenous dog, bred for its intelligence, loyalty, and bark. They work as a team with their unique commands and whistles. Come and experience a scenic journey into the back blocks of the station where you will get an appreciation for a day in the life of a flock.
You will find this is an experience that is both informative and interactive. Sharing with you FLOCKHILL Station and its history, life today and our future.
