Weather was chilly and rainy Thursday, cool and pleasant Friday. Sheep were Scottish blackface, very touchy, with plenty of instinct for fight and flight. They were rigidly opposed to going through panels, especially fetch gates, which were routinely missed. Also, though the field seemed very flat, it must not have been, because dogs sent right, especially if they were wide runners, frequently failed to find their sheep and ran to and fro behind them til they finally managed it. This is what happened to Bobby Dalziel on his first run with Jack. He scratched his second run with Cap (don't know why) and the reserve for Scotland, Alasdair Mundell, took his place. Aled Owen & Bob ran out of time at the pen, when not one of their five sheep, all of whom were spoiling for a fight, would even glance into the pen (Bob kept his cool under great provocation). Nigel Watkins had a perfect outrun and fetch, as I recall. More people timed out than finished the course.


Got to relinquish the computer now.
