Get in Behind - a Shepherd's Tale

anita and dogs

Anita Kendrick is a shepherd on an 1,800 hectare North Island station. In her spare time she trains working dogs and breeds border collies. Anita also has a broken back. The farm bike she was riding landed on top of her in October 2011. She was 18.

It wasn't clear whether Anita would be able to continue working as a shepherd, but with a modified farm vehicle and a huge amount of determination Anita is back doing what she does best.
