NGABHDA Winter AKC Herding Trial News

Dates:  December 31, 2016 and January 1, 2017

The weather was not the most ideal (windy and cold Sat; cool and rain, drizzly Sun) but the trials went on as scheduled.  The prizes for High in Trial were a beautiful belt buckle by Gist Silversmiths

or a handcrafted stained glass box by Dianne Blasius.

Our judges, Carol Ann Hartnagle and Jim New, were pleasant and encouraging while expecting the dogs to have the skills needed for each level.  We appreciate the time they took away from home and family over the New Year’s weekend.

Volunteers helped the events run smoothly - thanks to:  Stacy Edwards, Barbara Fitzgerald, Dean Jennings, Mary Keenan, Nancy Kelly (Chief Steward), Ren & Morgan Lewis, Melissa Scott, Elsa Sell, Susan Long, and Yvonne Evans-Wynne (Raffle).  

Stock handlers as always did a magnificent job in spite of the weather:  Doyle Ivie and Jeff Brewer.

A huge thanks to Woodsend Farm owners Doyle Ivie and Claire Hamilton for having the event at the farm.  

Next Fun Day with Instinct Test
