Wet, Windy, Woolie

The weather for this year's Sonoma Wine Country Sheepdog trial was the worst that anyone could remember from years past. Rain, hail, wind, and more misery. Saturday night in Santa Rosa, there was a high wind warning. Early Sunday morning we learned that a huge oak had fallen across the driveway to the trial site and was blocking the road as well. The trial must go on, however, so the tree was cleared with the help of an arborist, several handlers and trial crew. The trial got underway late but we were rewarded with decent weather the rest of the day, especially in the afternoon.

First handler on the hill field getting her run under way. Whew!

More to come about the trial in a later post...
