bc soul sista Posted April 16, 2012 Report Share Posted April 16, 2012 Hello!!! Not sure if this is a good place for this question...but since it's related to sheepdog training thought I would start here!!! Practicing stockwork for me and my dogs consists of going to my two good friends farms, who also train/trial border collies in USBCHA trials....the two farms are maybe 15 acres of seperated pastures...which is ok most of the time for training... We are all kind of suffering the same problem of not having any BIG areas to practice long outruns!!! We solve the problem now by having to drive 2-4 hours one way to someone who has some larger areas...I recently made a 6 and 10 hour drive one way just to get to some bigger fields!!! I know that others have there ways of dealing with shortage of big land, usually they can find a near by farmer who doesn't mind them using there hay fields/etc... We unfortunatly DON'T know anyone who owns such land within a oneour drive....so we had the idea of making some kind of Want Ad...sending it out on vartious lists and posting it at local feed stores in hopes that someone wouldnt mind us trailering sheep to there pasture for a few hours here and there....we have course would compensate them.. Any ideas on what to say that wouldnt over whelm people with this idea?? I asked a few people in person and they were like "what?!" Thanks for any suggestions!!!
