On Saturday we went along to our local show 15 minutes away. Caitlin helped by handling Rowan and Fergus. Although Fergus was not placed in Veteran he was 3rd to Ceilidh in the NSC terrier open. Rowan was 4th and Poppy was 2nd in NSC terrier Post Graduate. Glenn was asked to handle Pheobe in the Post Graduate class and did really well to get a 4th. In the Westie open class Glenn and Tilly got 2nd to the Best in Show winner. Caitlin handled Leo (Lhasa Apso) to 3rd place. Bella (black Lab) to 2nd place. Caitlin borrowed Leo for the Junior handling as got a well deserved 4th place from a large class.
A couple of days after Caitlin sold Crunchie she bought Honey. Honey is a 4 year old New Forest mare. She was not backed so the work began. Caitlin has now sat on Honey's back with tack. ( At last!!) sorry about the colour clash!!!
Caitlin got Crunchie 3 years ago. Her successes with him have been in showjumping, x-country and excelling in dressage. After a very successful summer Crunchie went to new owners not too far away. Their best win was Supreme Working Hunter Champion at Strathisla summer show 2008.
Glenn has started his handling career with some success. 2nd at Perth, 1st at Arbroath both time having a shot of Bramble a Lakeland terrier. At our club match he won Best Junior Handler pushing Caitlin into 2nd place.
Rowan and Poppy have been the lastest arrivals. They arrived just before christmas 2007 in time for the snow. Bred by Doreen Newman-Bright. Mum has Rowan and Inka in her name and I have had the joy of owning and handling Poppy (it has been different!!!!)
