Shabfest got a great review in the International Sheepdog News magazine.
Gure Trial, Basque Country Northern Spain.
A great event and well worth the 14 hour drive from Shabden,
Rob came 4th over the two days and Taff finished 10th.
Due to the accident they had not seen sheep for two weeks so it was a big ask, they did not let me down
No news is not always good news, as I found out 3 weeks ago.
A late call from a neighbour telling me sheep were out on the road, found me riding the Quad around the farm shooting lamp in hand.
All the sheep were in the right place but thought the woodland might be worth checking.
Unfortunately I forgot about a pile of logs that had been stacked in the field which the front wheel of the quad found, as the quad tipped on it's side I was thrown on to what remained of a fallen branch.
5 broken ribs a punctured lung and a cut liver... Ouch!
I now have 3 titanium plates holding me together!
The Shabden Open Continental trial will be taking place as planned, no magnets allowed. Thank you
