I have won trials but never got a cool trophy like this. Dirk gave them out to the first place Open winners at each of his five trials. It has a sheep and a details of the trial. (click to see larger view)
The date says March 21 but the trial was moved to March 28, in case you noticed that detail on the trophy. Our score was 84 and it was the highest Open score over the 5 trial series!!
Her first leg of the drive. That part of the course is very tough and Lucy just marched the sheep through that part. We had a bit of a bobble on the drive but she had wonderful flanks. We had a tiny lamb fall down at the first fetch panel so we tucked the three upright lambs next to her and waited until the lamb got up and we went on. We had several lambs fall down in the early morning runs in the Open division.
After our run and I was telling her that she was a good dog. She tried very hard and I was happy. Give us a few months and we should be clicking well again.
Clapping for the PN winner. Brian in making some statement next to me!! Or maybe a joke?
Pearse Ward got third place in Open with his Riel!! That was a nice run.
Jim Cooper and Zot tied for first but lost on the outwork. Here is Jim getting his second place ribbon. Jim and Donna are the nicest couple!!
