Rebecca, Irena Farm Posted September 9, 2008 Report Share Posted September 9, 2008 Robin posted this on another thread and I thought it was really thought-provoking. It leads you through a survey which predicts your potential as a sheepdog handler - assuming you make no changes of course between "now" and "then." From Teun's site. http://www.bcdb.info/winners.htm I don't think the message one should get from this is that if you are that way now, you'll never be an Open handler. Just a year and a half ago I'd have had to honestly admit that my dogs were obtained through less-than-stellar channels, that I rarely worked my sheep because I disliked "schooling" (I've always enjoyed chores though), and a couple other points I think have changed. Just for fun I went back after I got my first "score" (rather surprising) and answered as I would have 18 mos ago, and I didn't make it out of Novice - though I was brushing Open. How about that - just exactly where I was when I stopped trialing. So I can say that personally I'd call it accurate. I sort of hope so, let's just say.
