We have also started trialling for the year. Kate and I only do a few trials but are very keen. The local ones all seem to be around the same time. Our first was at Tara. It is a wonderful trial filled with great people. They have a concert one night and everyone has a go at singing. I even got roped into doing a skit as a old lady with her husband welcoming the guests. It was fun. The boys that dressed up as ABBA stole the show and I think Gary Hurtz singing surprised us all, he was great. And yes we finally had a win. Kaden's Bonnie Lass won the encourage and is now a novice dog. There was about 20+ dogs and the sheep were a bit on the difficult side. Only 3 made it through to the final. I went out with Bonnie and she just held them beautifully, I was impressed with her work. Bonnie has come such a long way and I can't wait to breed again from her in July. You would have thought I had won the Australian Open but that first win is always so good! Kate won the cast lift and draw in the Novice with Jack so it was a good day all round. We are investing in a campervan for next year so it looks like we may have caught the trialling bug.
Our dorpers are going well with 2 batches of weaners now gone to the butchers. Our females look good and we have to invest in a new ram to cover the numbers. Bonnie's pup, Kaden Dark Angel is now in training and I am very happy with her. The breeding program is working and she may even be better than her mum. We will keep that from Bonnie as she likes to be top female. Well time to walk the gang!
