Coal was in Nursery on Saturday and Sunday, and both he and Bid were entered in Pro-Novice on Monday.
On Saturday, Coal was second in the Nursery class and on Sunday he was third. He put in a really good performance given the fact that he is a baby dog and not really prepared for this level of competition. He got lots of compliments.

Bid did well on Monday showing us a beautiful outrun and lift and perfect pen. He ended up in the middle of the pack, score-wise. It's always nice to get numbers after your dog's name on the scoreboard, and some said it was the best outrun they'd ever seen Bid do.
Many thanks once again to the Spencer family for their generous sheep dog events, as well as to judge Michael Shearer and his wife, who came all the way from Scotland to judge and clerk.
