Bramble Hill Farm novice trial results

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


The rain held off and Texel and North Country Cheviot cross ewes proved challenging for the Bramble Hill Farm Novice Trial on Oct. 10. I'd like to thank all those who volunteered and served as scribes, exhausters, set out and pen crew, gofers, score posters, mathemeticians, rulebook experts, and all the other jobs that are needed to make a trial go smoothly.


Special thanks go to George Northrup for juding, Emily Yazwinski for spending the day with us setting sheep when her farm was largely submerged by the Deerfield River, and Warren Mick for not only doing everything that needed to be done, but for anticipating that it would be needed.


Thanks also to all the handlers who attended and made this all possible.


Scores are as follows:



Please note that these scores are different from the ones posted at the trial field due to an error in calculation of drive points.
