Dogs and their owners did themselves proud at the Macclesfield Sheepdog Trials.
Competitors from around the area and further afield took part in the trials at Ann and Bud Eardley’s Sutton Hall Farm in Sutton.
More than 2,000 people flocked to see handlers using sheepdogs to herd sheep around a field, through fences, gates and into enclosures.
The weekend included a tug-of-war competition, craft fair and fell race.
James Gilman from Bosley continued his impressive record at the event by again winning the local singles competition.
He had trained a group of beginners who took part in a trial of their own.
Jane Nixon, who attended the event and is married to outgoing chairman Ian, said: “We think there were more than 2,000 attendees over the two days of trialling, which is a fantastic turnout.
"It was great to see lots of families enjoying the sunshine and viewing a traditional activity which is still very much in use in the farming world today.
"The pets corner proved popular where a trio of piglets amused the crowds with antics and a beautiful chicken showed off her brood of 17 chicks.
"Equally popular was the large craft fair on the Saturday with a huge variety of stalls including local produce, handmade bags and exquisite walking sticks.
“It’s a fantastic community event.”
Edward Gilman, James Gilman’s brother, will take over as chairman.
