Good Start to the Season

 Today was the first day back at  school for most of us after our winter break! 

A group of eight  enthusiastic handlers &  dogs met up at The Glebe for the first herding meet of the season. Everyone enjoyed their day - not even the  heavy storm in the late afternoon dampened spirits.  The new pen was pronounced a 'success'  - doing a good job  keeping the sheep safe &  controlling the more vigorous dogs. 

This link is  a clip of Jackie & Mirk giving us all a demonstration  of how it should be done  -  note that Mirk is working to the whistle & not verbal or hand commands - quite an  achievement!

A fuller report  of the day  will appear in due time.
