Letter from America
I got one more shot which I think very cool. This is at the end of
run, sheep nicely controled through the Y chute. Permission
I found I LOVED the Scotties, if dog was right they handled like a
dream... if not..they were all over the map. they are NOT used to
things like the arena or the Y chutes...they are the training sheep
for the field work..yet they have been beautifully brought up and are
as honest as the day is long...but the dog HAD to control them or they
would NOT go through stuff.
Owner/Handler: Lisa Bell
Dog: Aussie, Touchstone Certain Victory, aka Winston
Site: Lakebay WA
Venue ASCA Ranch Dog
(gal won the class by the way...really cool work)
Ranch Dog Trial... The Shute
'Sunny held em and they turned and flowed through the chute toward thesorting gate..five to go into the open field behind, five marked with
neck ribbons) into the near pen. Chute is a "wire" chute hard to see
other than the position of the sheep themselves..it was beautifully
paced and done.'
Making strides in his training,
Maverick and Vikki.
Thanks to Vikki for introducing her ducks Poppadom and Pickletray
