My mom, @nuthatch43 is probably glad you asked. You’re right, we showed up at the handler’s post. Each time adds experience. Goal is a different mistake next time. Kate appreciates me learning as much as possible before it is her turn to trial. And that is not long coming.

Thanks for explaining! Glad she got her first trial under her belt. She was there. That is a success! The rest will come.

To hold the sheep in position until the competing dog gets there to lift them. The outrun (approach) , lift (direction and speed off the set out spot) and fetch (return to the handler with the sheep) are judged.

In our case, Pippi decided to take the sheep for a “drive” (away from me), instead of “fetch”ing them to me. Her first sheepdog Trial, things happen. The outrun is much longer than in the arena trials that she has done previously. And since her outruns are flatter than a border collies would be, I didn’t read her intention properly, just thought that stress had tightened her up even more than usual. Lots of head shakes and chuckles.

The border collie is Lincoln, the set out dog.
