We run all our four dogs earlier in the morning and then off to Wales for Champion of Champion.
Moss run well and had his second runner up place this weekend.
Saturday 18 aug
As usual a very good trial. The weather was terrible, so the cheviot sheep wasn’t so keen to work together with the dogs.
Both Davey and Moss handled them well. This is the third year in a raw we win this trial. Lotta won it two years ago, Jim and me last year and Davey this year.
I special like the whisky bottle every competitor get, with the last years winner on.
John Templetons sheepdogtrial.
Good sheep if you handled them careful.
We don’t have many double lift trials, we need more. Glen Devon is one of them and a very good one. Good sheep and good field.
A very nice hill trial set up by Steven Martin. All trials up there are good, good sheep, good catering, very nice atmosphere.
R.McDiarmid was judging.
