October 23rd/24th

Red River Herding Club of Texas

An absolutely beautiful weekend to spend outdoors doing the thing that we love with our dogs and our friends and there were so many accomplishments this weekend by dog/handler teams.

It takes everyone's contributions to pull off a successful weekend herding trial, we missed the ones not with us, and welcomed new ones. 

Laura did a great job hosting the lunch in Anna's absence, and a special shout out to our runner - who kept the score sheets up to the minute on her watch - way to go Kaitlin (not sure on the spelling).

We all look forward to seeing you and Jiggs on the fields someday!

Rained all night and it was a cool, drizzly day.  I don't think any of us remembered to write down the results, we were pretty anxious to get on the road and get home.  Ponca City is one of my personal favorite trips but it’s a long way back on a Sunday night for sure. 

I think this is how it went but hopefully others will chime in if I got it wrong:

Tricia and Dodge-1st in Intermediate B Goats and I think their Title.

I don't believe any of us Q'd on the A course Goats.  I will say that all of our dogs tried hard and each had moments of really good work.  The goats were big and a little salty by the end of day 3 in the drizzle so we had some challenges.

As is typical for an Alamar Gang road trip, we had lots of fun, food and laughs.  We may or may not have cussed a little.

Missed y'all that couldn't be with us!

Next stop, Broken Arrow!

Another trial weekend in the books.  Beautiful weather, wonderful company and seeing friends, old and new!  Next up…Red River Herding Club of Texas trials in Oct/November

In May a couple of our family members went to Kentucky to visit with family and decided to enter some duck trials that were just down the road from where they were staying.  Tim and Donna Walker were trialing Moss, Gael and Mirk and making us proud with their accomplishments.

Tim and Donna are working on the 4th generation of Alamar Herding Champions with their new puppies out of HC Alamar’s Mirk and Alamar’s Little Gem, AKA, Pearl.  They are babies now, but will no doubt, be raking in the ribbons before long with Dax and Mac!  Thanks Tim and Donna for being the perfect home for our babies and the best friends and family we could ask for!

3 days of herding ducks in the beautiful rolling green hills of Kentucky for the Walker's.  And no, I don't believe it is snowing in hell.... Tim worked ducks!  Friday is AHBA - 2 trials, Saturday is AKC - 2 trials and Sunday is AKC - 1 trial.   A & B courses for each trial.   

 Friday, May 20th - morning started off in the 50's, turned to the 60's - rain held off till mid trail.   Absolutely lovely call ducks.

Then the 5 of us all trialed today.  Tomorrow we will be minus John and Anna Leal.  Two trials each day. B sheep and A & B ducks on one and the A sheep on another.

But, Always a great time with friends and our dogs, doing what we love.

If I missed a title - post it out! Lots going on at our home trials and I don't always get all the titles. A special recognition, Red Dawn's Betsy Ross - Stitch, ran her retirement run on Saturday A Ducks. Fondly nicknamed 'Second Place Sally' years ago... she was working towards her herding championship - and kept beating her score in the opposite class... The one she didn't have her advanced title in! One of the best ducks dogs you will ever see, you have earned your spot on the couch girl - go and enjoy!

Until the fall trials - Train well, love your dogs and always go out to have a good time with them!
