So what we do after a long, hot day at a herding trial? Well, if it is at Hado-Bar Farm, we stop by Jamison Creek Nature Preserve on our way back to the hotel!
While Porter always seems to be part terrier, I think Stout is part water retriever.
He will put his snout under the water to pick up large rocks...
Porter gets a second chance to practice his herding moves on some fishes.
Why did she throw my stick all the way out there?!
Stout was just a little bit tired afterwards :)
This park, Jamison Creek Nature Preserve, is a little hidden gem. I couldn't find a website for it, and it isn't marked on Google maps either. I stumbled upon it (my GPS listed it) last year after a herding trial up there.
If you were my friend on Facebook back then, you will recall it was the one where the old people were about to have sex :) I don't blame them, it is a REALLY nice park...
