Have I mentioned what a sucker I am for photos? :)
The same photographer who took the first agility photos of Stout, was at the herding trial. I think Jim Poor does an outstanding job & I was excited to see him there!
It is so much harder to decide on which herding photos to purchase though... The best photos aren't necessarily the best part of your run :) Good herding shouldn't be all that exciting.
So I had to compromise between good photos & photos that showed good herding ;)
While I was yelling at Porter here, at least the sheep were in the correct position :)
Even though the sheep are pushed past me, at least Porter is going out to cover.
And I don't look panic-stricken :)
I think this was our first time to have a successful runway panel at a trial. Generally they are more of a "run-away panel" type of thing.
But look at how calm we are! And how far away Porter is!
Never mind that he is heading them off to stop movement, instead of calmly driving them down the fenceline...
Here is a link to the photo that sums up our herding, but I just couldn't justify purchasing it :)
