Snook, Sally and Nell worked ducks. Nell was not sure she wanted to work ducks the first day and it was so mechanical...she did everything I said.....but talk about lack of intensity! Next day was much better.....Snook was 1st advanced duck run both days.....Sally 1st in started ducks the first day and 3rd the second.....gave me opportunity to work on some things....and Nell was 2nd and 1st in started ducks.
Nell ran in started cows! I swear I almost wet my pants the first time "this" happened on her first day! OMHeck!!!!!!!!!!!!! My friends and cow mentors....told me to shut up and let her work...so the next day...I did. She got in over her head a few times but she put in some good work and tried so hard. Cowgirl Up little Nellie Bellie!
One goal that I have had for four years....when attending this ASCA trial....is to be high combined. Due to the fact I have never run cows (combined being scores from sheep/ducks/cows in same division in one day)...it was near to impossible. This year, Nell did me proud and brought home Most Promising Started Dog...which really is high combined for started. I knew she had promise.....Now it is time to seize the day....one day at a time!
