Caitlin is Sarah's daughter and has grown up training working sheepdogs alongside her. She has been shepherding all of her working life, and has her own small grassland farm, trains her own dogs and those of other people.
Nell has been involved in working dogs all her life, and grew up watching both sheepdogs and gundogs being trained and worked. Although she has not been involved in sheepdog trialling, she has trained working sheepdogs that have gone on to be very capable of doing what the job requires of them. She has been training and working gundogs for both the beating line and picking up, and has done so in many shoots. Nell has a practical approach to training and enjoys watching the partnership grow betweeen dog and handler whilst training a dog that is fit for the job.
Kath is not a dog trainer but has her own sheepdogs which she works and trials. Her talents lie in the organisation, administration and book-keeping side of Mayfields Farm, and is responsible for the adminstration of Nearly Wild Camping and Event Hire at Mayfields. Kath has worked in the accountancy world all of her working life, and is the current treasurer of our local East Anglian Sheepdog Scoiety as well as performing other admin roles.
