Upcoming Trial - for you MidAtlantic BC Boarders!


Recommended Posts

Edgeworth is coming up! Oct 12 through 14 in Gordonsville, VA. I was going through some old pictures and saw I had some from last year's trial! I'm hoping to day trip up, possibly - it's well worth it for sure!

 

The farm is breathtakingly beautiful:

and of course there's the field:

 

(I was a little self-centered on who I chose to take pictures of - Mark B and Peg, Ted's mama!)

Wide view of the field - sorry about the lines - this was for a non-BC board to explain the trial course!

I'm pretty sure this is Tom Forrester.

Polly Matzinger getting her shed with, I think, James the Beardie mix?

Julie Poudrier and Kat (Kat's out there, honest!):

Ohmigod, is that Laura out there?! Girl, you look like a different person now!

 

:D 'Fraid so! I believe I'm going to use that as a "before" shot. :rolleyes:

 

ETA - I hate I'll be missing watching Edgeworth this year. Next year, though, I hope will be a different story!

I was actually going to say Julie looks pretty good, too! I wish I could do WW - no money, and I stink at exactly the sort of thing Laura's good at. Oh, well, I'm losing weight very slowly the old fashioned way.

 

Mark, LOL. That's how *I* remember it and I'm sticking to my story! Anyway, she did pretty good the day before . . .

Becca,

Maybe a little birdie can give you some WW materials for free :D In exchange for something very valuable that is......... hehe

 

And the online message boards for WW are free and a great resource. Just don't tell them you're asking questions because you don't to go meetings, they get snippy over there. :rolleyes: Imagine that! People on a message board getting snippy! :D

Let's get it on the calendar and make it a date! Well, that is if it doesn't conflict with shipping calves. Our fall revolves around shipping calves, and we never have the exact date until the teleauction. Too bad Ed has to be gone all of next week, or I'd try to go this year, at least for a couple of days. Life is what happens when you had other plans (John Lennon).

If anyone is attending and wants a little extra learning experience, look me up - i'm setting up clerks/scribes for the judge.

 

 

 

Oh, me, me too please!

Between the finals and moving I missed the entry deadline, so I won't be running this year. :rolleyes: Good luck to those who did get their entries in, and have fun all.

 

How are things going?? I've been thinking about you with all of the upheaval.

 

Sue - you've got a deal!

Probably not. Actually Edgeworth was the only trial I planned to enter this fall, so now that I've blown it I'll have to decide whether to substitute another one or not.

 

I'm sorry to miss it too. It is unique among east coast US trials. Maybe I'll go down to watch one day . . .

Um, I don't think that's real likely. Remember the year a couple of people weren't there when their names were called, so they couldn't run, so more people who were relying on the running order to judge what time to be there were late, so THEY weren't allowed to run, and it cascaded into a death spiral where half the people were late and weren't allowed to run (including Alasdair, Stu Ligon, me, and more others than I can remember) and the trial was over about noon? The conclusion I drew from that is that Florence does not cut slack.

No, Florence will not cut you any slack. She and I share a door mat. It says "Leave". Isn't that hilarious? I got one for myself when I was down in Virginia last year. I think Sam has one too.

Where did you move Eileen? Do you have sheep on site now? Do tell all.

It's not that far from our once and future house, and it's not a permanent move. We're here while our "real" house (which was hot in summer, bitterly cold--and actually windy inside--in winter, and pretty ramshackle) is being torn down and rebuilt. But it will be the best part of a year before we can move back in, apparently. From a daily life point of view, the move is actually worse than a permanent move, because you have to decide not just what to keep and what to throw away, but what keepers you can live without for a year and what you can't, and what to do with each in the meantime, and I'm already learning that I didn't always decide right.

 

Demolition goes fast, and I find myself hyperventilating everytime I look at the stubs of what was recently our home, but in the end I'm sure it will all be worth it. I'm still about ten minutes from the farm in our temporary rental, which is fine. We could never have stayed at the farm -- the "dwelling" there is really a barn, and is only considered a dwelling by the county/state so that they can tax us more. It's fine for me to sleep in when I need to during lambing, but that's about it.

Entries are not down at Edgeworth; I believe Tommy and Flo said there were 90 dogs (no double lift). HOPEFULLY IT WILL NOT BE AS HOT AS MONTPELIER!

 

Eileen I feel for you. While Renee and I were building our house (about 1 year) and living with Mary (our 1st home sold in 2 days) whenever we drove by the storage lot we would wave at all our stuff. Hang in there, it is worth it.
