A young sheepdog led a flock straight into a farmer’s home.

Rosalyn Edwards was working in her kitchen when she suddenly started to hear strange noises.

When Rosalyn turned around she was stunned to discover her Border collie puppy, Rocky, had proudly led nine sheep into her house.

The seven-month-old sheepdog-in-training had taken advantage of an open gate to usher the sheep through into the Edwards’ home in Devon via the back door.

The 40-year-old said: “I thought it was funny at the time, but then there was quite a lot of wee, poo and mud everywhere. It took me a little while to clean it all up.

“My son and husband had gone out into the field, and the gate was left open. Rocky got them out and led them to the house.

“I was in the kitchen and heard a noise. I turned around and the sheep were just standing there. There were about nine of them.

“I took the children into another room and then tried to guide the sheep out.”

She later posted a video of the livestock melee in her home on Facebook, in which she and her husband, Andrew, 41, can be heard trying to shoo the animals from their home.

Eventually the flock was marched out via the porch at the front of their home, leaving a trail of muck in their wake.

Mrs Edwards added: “Rocky did look quite pleased with himself, but he’s going to need more training.

“He brought a whole new meaning to ‘bringing the sheep home’.”
