This is to let you know you have been approved as a judge for the American Herding Breed Association.  As indicated in the AHBA Judges Requirements, all approvals are provisional for the first two years or until the individual has judged at least twice, whichever comes last.  Comments from the herding public will be considered in providing full approval. A provisional judge may take any assignment.  Also, you will need to earn a second AHBA advanced title in that period.


Let me know if any changes are needed to the website listing below.  If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to contact me.

Teesside is full of lorry drivers and motor cycle instructors who suffer from random sheep related radio messages interrupting their lorry driving and motor cycle instruction - 'Luke will you just pull over.... Luke please pul over on that grass Luke Jackie can you see those sheep below you pull over by the seives left at that round about Jim LEFT there's some behind you Kath LUKE ' Aaaagh


Pressie from Pauline...

That sky nearly drove me nuts...

499 pieces... 3-D. I may go blind.



We knew, when the top bananas all baled out after the referendum result. The teen age voters have revenged themselves on the oldies to get supported through their university years. Basically a win for terrorist groups and people with long knives. My 15 acre 'garden' is going to triple my poll tax, RPA will doubtless vanish and Europe's getting best laugh since the American election. And Ryedale's fracked.

 And that may read as teenagers being a terrorist group. I considered the offence this may cause, then left it as it reads. So kennel cough seems small beer at mo; got a bucket of antibiotic tablets all the dogs reject in any form of concealment so by the end of the course probably will be first customer of our new enriched super efficient NHS for re attaching my pill inserting hand.





Another Joke

To the woods

Jupe photobombing the scenary

Pulling the digger out at New House


Clough Head Sheepdog Trial from the

top of the field.

Valmis Jupiter makes it up there! I am at the bottom, in front of the white car away from the rest, the judge's car, begging him to flank so we get some steering. He REALLY wants to bring them straight down. I REALLY want him to swing them left along the side of the incline to hit his fetch gates. We did get them but time ran out...

(Thank you Thomas Longton for the pic taken on his phone; 'Dog has so much eye  I had time to take a picture')


Another lovely 2 days gathering at Baysdale

off the moor

and into the fields for lambing.

A celebration of the team's survival of the 2016 English Nationals. Heart felt thanks were offered to Chairman, A Mosey from us, and from Alec and us to his family team, the Castle Howard team, and Sally Banks, who doesn't even like sheepdogs, for an enormous amount of work undertaken stress endured with eternal grace and good humour.

A magic evening, highlight J B Murdoch and J Rangely, as dinner monitors, serving the apple crumble.

Lesson Learnt. Do Not Take the Lead off too early!After three days lurking in the wheatfield opposite, Kate is safe home!


Chap had a perfect half mile outrun on the Deerplay second day but failed to take vital stop and steering commands and brought them at high speed over bog gulley and rush to my feet instead of across the hill to the drop off point for his second outrun, so I retired. I was not alone, plenty more did the same, so I know what to practice for next year! The winning runs showed how to do it!



Young Shep
