WooHoo…we made it through our very first USBCHA field trial. And boy was it a challenge. Scottish Highland Games in Vista, CA. Narrow, uphill outrun was the start out. I am so proud of Sassy. She is 2 yrs old and handled it well, even though her handler was very nervous…oh yeah that was me. Everyone at the trial was so supportive. Anne Mock was the judge and such a true wonderful “Lady”. You put in the time at home, go to lessons, go to clinics and then pay your money to enter the trial. You get there early and look around and think “what was I thinking…” My goal was simply to get through each phase of the run. Outrun, Lift, Fetch, Around the Post, Fetch/Drive Panel and Pen. Not hard..practiced it a million times and yet…I forgot how to do it…but Sassy didn’t. Yes, I know who names there dog Sassy…well its really her nickname…Scottish Lass whose real name is Shannon. And not only did she help her handler get through the course but she took 3rd doing it on Day one. When Day 2 arrived I was ready to actually help her through the course, but by then the sheep had a whole different idea and decided to go back to the setout pens. Oh well…it was a great lesson to work through and good time to meet amazing people who love these wonderful animals….
