Thank goodness it's fall. Though, we had a spectacularly cool summer, but,very few herding trials :0(
Oct 2/3 is an AKC trial on my home turf. The trial is being held where I work my dogs. I put all 3 dogs in advanced B (field) and Yoko in advanced A (arena). I will take my trialer over and have a blast.
I have to miss the fun trial in Porterville over the 9th and 10th, because of darn ol' work.
Then I'm taking off for Florida to visit Dad. I will be there for 6 days in order to give my brother and his wife some respite and of course, to visit Pop.. :0)
Oct 23/24 Another fairly local AHBA trial. Again I'm taking my trialer and plan on having a ton of fun. And, we may even talk Wayne into trialing Jet in the ranch trial.
Oct. 27-31 Elk Grove (5 1/2) hrs. away is a USBCHA sheep dog trial with a double lift. I'm taking the girls and I'm taking the trailer on it's first long voyage.
Nov.6/7 USBCHA Lindsay trial. Range ewes. Taking the trailer...only about 3 hrs. away.
Nov. 21/22 USBCHA Dunnigan Hills...about 6 hrs. away Thinking about staying at motel for that one.
Plus, I'm going to have to call in sick at work. Bummer. You gotta do what you gotta do.
Dec. 5/6 USBCHA Coalinga trial. Range ewes. Yoko may not be ready for Coalinga, but going anyway. 4 hrs. away.
Dec. 31Jan 1/2 USBCHA in Campo. Thankfully, I got the holidays off to go 4 hrs. away to this trial. Of course, I'll have to work Christams Eve and Christmas to be able to go. Sigh.
The things we do for love.
