Sheep Herding Demonstrations On Sunday


Stuart Ballantyne’s Craigmalloch Border Collies from the Dunedin Highland Games and from the Ft. Lauderdale Highland Games Sheep Dog Demonstraions will bring a wealth of stock and dog knowledge which is used daily on his farm.

Sheep Herding will perform a sheep herding demonstration at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 21.

Stuart was born and raised on a small Scottish farm where they had two small residences – Lambdoughty Farm and Craigmalloch farm.

The farm ran a small flock of about 2400 head of Scottish Blackface sheep. The Blackface wool makes the best Harris tweed and Axminster carpets.

Space Coast State Fair 2012 layout Stuart moved to the U.S ten years ago and began Sheep herding once again about four and a half years ago

Stuart met Lucia Skipwith Lilien about 2 years ago and one of their first dates was whelping a litter of puppies, two of whom they have and train now – Dairsie and Hailes.

They now have a small flock of Scottish Blackface sheep on a small farm and train their five Border Collies Rock, Keene, Dairsie, Hailes and Tyne to work stock and compete in herding competitions across the United States.

The Craigmalloch Border Collies will perform sheep herding demonstrations on Sunday April 21 at 3pm.

Stuart makes shepherds crooks from sheep horn and recently was approached by a film maker about the possibility of making a documentary about crook making as it is such a dying art.

Lucia has proved to be a natural at caring for the stock and learning the art of herding.

Her medical background and her intense love of the animals empowers her greatly, making her a very devoted farm partner.

Stuart and Lucia deliver lambs together during lambing season and make sure the flock and the dogs remain not only healthy, but in superior health.

It is a full time job, as anyone can tell you that has been around livestock. An experienced public speaker, Lucia brings a demonstration to life with her dialogue.

Their musical style exhibits blues influence and an array of improvisational jams to season their covers with their passion and creativity.

Their sets are designed to engage audience members of any age.

  34. i tried posting yesterday…not sure what happened…but i would like to take my daughter to the fair because its the one place that has a lot of great rides for little kids and they can go on them mostly alone. I am 7 months pregnant and would love to have the opportunity to take her to the place she loved!! I think we were there for about 5 hours just letting her go on ride after ride and even though i cant go on any right now i would love to see the look on her face. The shows are amazing and the food is good. I really would like to have a fun day with my daughter and fiance at the fair before our son comes in may.

  35. I would like to win free tickets. We are new to the area and have 5 kids and free tickets would sure help the budget. My older kids love the rides and I love to watch them have fun. The younger ones love the smaller rides and the look on their faces are priceless.

  36. Wow,…..this sounds so great….I have lived here and have never been able to attend…I sure hope I can this year!!!!

  37. My whole family loves the space coast fair. It is the best fair in Florida. My daughter told me if I don’t take her I would be on punishment! Love how little minds work!

  38. I’d love to be able to win the two free tickets and be able to go to the fair with a family member or friend since money is tight, and I always have so much fun at the state fair. Good luck to everyone!

  39. My daughter loves the fair. She rides everything at least three times. We love the shows and concerts. The fair food is the best!

  40. I am a native brevard county resident, and love the Space Coast Fair. I have 2 children, 1 is 5, and 1 is 16. They love the fair as much as I. It would be wonderful if I could take them to see their smiles from ear to ear…..

  41. My daughter has been begging us to take her to the fair. With money being tight, we have not been able to attend the last few times the fair has been in town. Would love to win some tickets to make her day and see that smile on her face! Thanks for the opportunity!

  42. I enjoy having fun and the Spacecoast fair is the best on the East coast… I would enjoy a couple of free tickets because I am retired and have a fixed income…. I like to spend Money in the Fair on gifts and food and would be so happy to go and enjoy seeing all the happy faces… thank you.

  43. I would love to win tickets for me and my son to go together. We have never been to the Space Coast Fair and I have heard it is a huge, awesome event! My son has autism and doesn’t speak. I took him to a small fair once when he was smaller and the look on his face was priceless when he whipped around on the little daredevil kiddie rides. Now that he is much taller he can go on more daring rides which he I think he will absolutely love being the adrenaline junkie he is. I think this would be a wonderfully fun experience for both of us!

  44. I can’t wait to bring our 3 1/2 year old to experience your fair for the very first time!! There is nothing better than the lights of the rides and games noises from all the children’s laughter mixed with more ride sounds and of corse the yummy smells of all the things we swore to avoid on January 1…..I can’t wait to see your fair through the eyes of this child for the very first time….excitement and pure joy at its finest!!

  45. I would love to win tickets for my family. My kids are 11 & 6 and have never been to a fair. Hope we win 🙂

  46. I would love free tickets!! Last year I was unable to attend the fair with my family due an emergency out of town. I have two young Children and they absolutely love the fair! We love family events and entertainment, also another fun time to get their cousins who are very close in age together. Love family togetherness. Regardless, I am so excited that I do not have to wait until November to enjoy the fun! Its only next week 🙂

  47. Thanks for offering free tickets! We would love an opportunity to win them! We would love to take our two teenage daughters to the Space Coast Fair but because we are on a fixed income as my husband is 100 percent service connected disabled and is the only income at the moment. I am afraid they will not be experiencing the fair this year. Good luck to all that enter!


  49. Thank you for offering free tickets. My family loves the fair but this year it will be different for my daughter as her ride buddy (her Daddy) is not here at this time. He is overseas defending our country. My children have not seen their daddy in almost a year. Free tickets to us would show us the appreciation people have for our family and all other military members who have to go so long without seeing their loved ones.

  50. I like fair’s. I like free tickets. No sad story’s & having to cajole you into selecting me. Just send me 4 tickets! Please & Thank you

  51. I would love to take my grandchildren to the fair, I can’t afford to do special things with them. And I know they would just have a wonderful time. We would be so thankful.
