Farmtrials and trials at hoornsterzwaag
Last weekend we finally had the first trials of this year.
We did all the farm trials with Jax on Thursday and the F course of the stock trials on Friday.
At the farm trial we ran for the first time in the advanced class with the cows and ducks (jax already has the advanced title on sheep).
We got a decent qualifying score
on all three runs!!
But actually the fun around the trials
and seeing each other again after a year
without trials was the best thing
about this weekend!
Normally we are at the jj ranch all weekend for the Anual Bootcamp during the Easter weekend.
Unfortunately that could not continue this year either. despite that we were able to train with cows for a day.
that was a while ago but jax did very well!

Sunday October 18th Jos and Jax participated in the farmtrial in Hamminkeln.
Our run didn't go quite as planned, Jax was very rushed and pushy. Despite that, we still managed to get the sheep around the course.
The run gave us a 4th place in advanced and a qualifying score of 117.5 points!
With that, jax has won his first AFDT title!
ASCA STOCKTRIALS and FARMTRIALS at JJ-Ranch
We started the September trials with a day of farm trials, the duck and cow runs at Open level, the sheep at Advanced level.
We Qualified all 3! The sheep run yielded a nice 116 points, the ducks 99 points and the cow run 114 points.
On Sunday we ran 6 more runs on the D course during the regular stock trials. 5 of them were qualifying.
Today another great day at the jjranch!
We had advanced runs Cattle and ducks, trying to finish and we succeeded!
The 4 qualifying scores make Jax WTCH!
Farmtrial at JJ-Ranch
The first trial day at the jj-ranch is over! A very hot day with sheep-, duck- and cattle farmtrials.
Jax got three nice qualifying scores of 118, 115 and 120 points !!
That not only gave us the first place in cattle (OFTD) but also the ribbons for high catle and high combined!

Got All the Open Titels And the First Advanced titel!
Our goal for the September stock trials was to get all open titles.
on Thursday we qualified 5 of the 6 runs! on the four open runs we finished in first place, all with nice qualifying scores.
Because we already had a qualifying open run on sheep, we were able to do the second run in advanced. that run was also qualifying and yielded a nice fourth place!
on thursday Jax won 'the High Combined non wtch' !
On Saturday we also qualified a sheep run in advanced, so beside the OTD's on sheep, cattle and ducks JAX also got his ATDsheep!
