A SHEEP FARMER in Carlow has tried a very modern way of herding his sheep from field to field.

The sheepdog may have to hang up his collar because ‘Shep The Drone’ has arrived and it’s taking no prisoners. The video, shot by Paul Brennan, shows the drone expertly herding around 100 sheep into a field.
