Went out to stock trials this past weekend and we came away with brags!

Hawkeye's breeder works him on cattle so I was able to take photos, so someone else had to take photos of the duck and sheep runs I did I'll post those if anyone sends them to me.

First on Friday, Hawkeye qualified in the Advanced Farm Trial and finished his Advanced Farm Trial Dog mixed stock (AFTDm) title! I was handling stock for the trial and wasn't able to take photos.

Then on Saturday Hawkeye finished his Advanced Trial Dog ducks (ATDd) title and got one leg towards his Open Cattle title and also took home the Highest Scoring dog on Cattle award which was a huge accomplishment considering that the trial was completely filled with entrants!
Lark also got legs towards her Open Sheep and Open Duck titles!



Then on Sunday Lark competing again in Open Sheep and Open Ducks got the award of Highest Combined scores in the trial (again completely filled!) She also finished her Open Sheep title!



More photos to follow!

Photos of Hawkeye training and competing in the trial!

It was raining during the trial when he took the Highest Scoring Cattle award







and here he is taking a quick look back as he helps bring the sheep down for training.

That's awesome! Congrats to you and the pups!

I love the idea of having a title to indicates a dog's ability to work as an actual farm dog.

It's a newer program in ASCA along with another title called the Ranch Dog title, both Farm and Ranch trials require more land and more livestock and try to mimick daily tasks a real working dog would do.
