Kate is busy in NZ doing a spot of skiing and bungy jumping while I clean pens and walk dogs, something wrong with this picture!!!
Had a training day at Spring Plains with a few very respected trainers. Jay cut himself badly and I was disappointed I couldn't show him off but enjoy watching Tony Jackson (who bred Jay) work his sisters. Mick Rigby brought along his tribe which included Ernie (sire of Bonnie's pups). I always learn plenty from these two trainers. It is an exciting time for Border Collie breeders as with the increase of imported stock plus the ability to AI and of course the Australian proven lines. I can only see the breed going forward as long as we always remember that it must be a complete package not just a lot of fancy names and numbers on a piece of paper.
Enough talk time to train and get my tribe going, the heat has set in so looks like early mornings if I am going to get it done!!
