Kin­tyre sheep­dog tri­als

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

A VIDEO of one man and his dog com­pet­ing at Kin­tyre Sheep­dog Tri­als at­tracted nearly 4,000 views on Face­book.

The post ref­er­enced the Ian McDougall tro­phy, and Don­ald McDougall from Swin­don wrote: ‘Ah my Un­cle Ian, what a man, great dog han­dler, if at times a tad ex­citable.

‘He loved the tri­als as did my fa­ther Alis­dair and many oth­ers. Great mem­o­ries of days with Neil (Skip) Ste­wart and Dougie Ste­wart at var­i­ous trial venues.’

Heather Coffield McKen­zie wrote: ‘My grand­fa­ther loved these tri­als... our dog Bruce was the runt of the lit­ter, and was thought not to be a good herder.

‘He ended up be­ing one of the best herders at Curry’s Farm in Kin­loch Farm. He was a great old dog and lived till he was 17 years old.’
