Barb McPherson and Callie at Palm Cottage Trial

Three years ago at the USBCHA Sheepdog Finals, Barb and Allen kindly provided their aircard so I could upload the Finals blog. So it is only fitting that I dedicate today's blog to Barb. Barb ran Callie in the PN Class at Laura Vishoot and Steven Shodin "Palm Cottage Sheepdog Trial."

 At the post.

Beaitiful merle female named Callie. She was quite stylish on the sheep. 

 See the expressive eyes....very intent!

Go Callie, Go!

 The drive. Barb did a great job handling these sheep. Thes sheep were very tough.

Holding that pressure. 

Beautiful work by a very nice dog.

Some people say that merle Border Collies can not work? Well, Callie proved them wrong as not only she worked but placed highly. She had full control of the sheep.

At the pen. I can't remember if she got the pen.  What a dynamic team! A real joy to watch. Plus one of the nicest couples ever. Congrats on a job well done!
