Star of the North SDT Results


Recommended Posts

The 2nd Annual Star of the North SDT was held this past weekend at Gale Woods in Minnetrista MN with Julie Hill doing the judging honors in her usual fine style. The sheep were a commercial flock from Kevin Bailey in Belle Plaine MN, ewes and lambs and proved to be challenging but workable. The Open course is a 500+ yard setout over rolling ground with a few brief blind spots on the fetch and a tricky cross-drive line. The ProNovice course was run at an angle to the Open course with sheep set 270 yards at the base of a hill. Again, terrain made for a tricky cross drive line both days with the sheep possibly drifting out of sight if too low on the cross-drive. Weather was cool and dry Friday, hot Saturday, blustery and showery Sunday, so typical for Minnesota in mid-October.


Many thanks to all the handlers who competed and to all who helped. Special thanks to Claudia and Maddie Mahon for running the bottom end of the field, to Richard and Kevin Bailey and Donna May who ran the top and did most of the spotting, and to Gene Weringa for being chauffeur and water hauler. Thanks also to Pat, Nadine, Polly, Annette, Lola, and Janet for clerking for Julie. Other than the trial host clobbering himself on the head with a post pounder, there were no major disasters. That, plus the fact that most of my friends are still talking to me, suggests that the second annual trial was a success. Partial results follow. Full results will be posted at http://www.comebye.net later this afternoon.
