RESDA Novice Workday
Today we had a RESDA novice workday, so that novice handlers or experienced handlers with novice dogs could get some time on sheep in a different setting. I worked Rime once and he was not bad considering that the boys have not been out on sheep all of this past week due to the many foxtails at the field where we normally train. I was happy with how Rime handled the new environment but kept things really simple as far as what I asked of him. Next time, I will try for more. Coal helped with setting sheep for others and overall enjoyed himself. It was a fun and relaxed group. The way-too-hot temperatures of Saturday did not materialize for Sunday and there was a nice breeze, making the weather pleasant and more than tolerable. Thanks to all who helped to make the workday happen. Photos are here.
