Hado-Bar Farms, in the booming metropolis of Nova, Ohio, held a Herding Ranch Dog trial on Friday and Saturday. Moose and Grady were entered.
They love Hado-Bar Farms. It is where they regularly go for herding lessons. It's the dog equivalent of Mecca. Or Heaven.
It other words, it's a gosh darn good place to be.
It's full of pretty red barns, herding gates and sheep.
And Debbie David.
They got to move 25 sheep into and out of pens, through gates, around obstacles, and through chutes. All in under 35 minutes. It's not an easy task when you have 22 sheep that want to go one way and 3 rogue sheep that want to go another.
And a judge watching their every move.
Farmer Gal was called in to "scribe" for the trial. She had the task of writing down every point off the judge found with each dog. Not a fun task when the rain started!
Moose and Grady each had a good day, coming in first and second and winning with "High in Trial" scores as well.
As you can tell, they really love their ribbons.
Well, maybe they don't care one little bit about their ribbons. But they sure did like their Milk Bone treats. For them, it was well worth it.
