Lynn Leach Clinic
It's A Great White Shark!!! Another One! Just when you thought it was safe to go out in the paddock...
is a link to a lady working a herding test in Arizona.
He learnt today that if you are TOO beserk & get TOO close to cattle hooves you get a kick to the muzzle...... Luckily only a glancing blow, it clearly hurt, but 10 secs later he shook himself off, & returned to driving the 4 steers around the field. Crazy little guy! Scared of shadows but not of livestock.......
Think he will have a lump on his nose tomorrow! Am very glad I worked them with sheep before cattle, to learn 'stop' etc!!
New Handler's Trial, South Lakes
The first time a vallhund ever stepped up to a trial post! Go, Loki!
Megan too! Less fazed by the men, dogs and scenery, she made an equally brave attempt to get her swales. Fiona stayed cool and all of us agree it was worth the rain, the long drive, early starts, B n B etc to be given the chance to have a go!
Never mind the quality of the picture
look how wide the dog is! ( That dot off to the right)
Marvin, Whoopi and Millie.

Loki has his brain reconected!
Loki's brain temporarily disconnected from his nether regions so he has to stay at home... Megan has gone Off the Lead!
But being in season has no effect on Megan, practising wide flanks!
Bless those Brackenhurst College store lambs!
and Loki learning to read sheep!
Working Hard !
