Plenty of en­tries into dog tri­als

More runs on all cour­ses for East­coast’s farm dogs in com­pe­ti­tion

Bush Telegraph - - Focus On Farming - By NATASHA SHAW

Great week­ends un­folded for Al­fred­ton and Mart­in­bor­ough dog tri­als with a good num­ber of en­tries and pos­i­tive feed­back.

It was re­ally good to see some young mem­bers com­ing through and get­ting placed. East­coast had an in­crease in num­bers of runs on all cour­ses.

Great to see Garry Smith and old Ned still putting on a show — he is now 10 years old with most of his 13 points scored on the Long­heads, it’s a great tes­ta­ment to his type and the care that Garry lav­ishes on him.

Are­ospread Top Head­ing dog is still Bernard Arends Roy on 30 points, John Bartlett with Honk gained a few points to now be on 18.

Are­ospread Hunt­away is still Chris Shaw with Dixie on 17 but Si­mon Prout­ing with Vince is mak­ing a late run gain­ing six points to put them into sec­ond place on 14.

Com­ing up is the run­ning of the Wairarapa Cen­tre Cham­pi­onships hosted by the Master­ton Club.
