AHBA weekend   October  2022

last weekend we participated in the AHBA trials at
JJ ranch. Jax had two duck runs and two sheep runs in Level III, all four runs were qualifying.

so Jax now also has his HTAD3d title

in trial 1 jax was High Combined!

Jos also had runs with Rival, both sheep runs in level II went well! and gave rival two qualifying scores + his HTAD2s title!

The Monday after the trials there was an opportunity to train with cows. Jax tamed the fresh beef cows (that had never worked with dogs before).

Training with Rival   JuLY  2022

Since last year Jos has been training now and then with Rival, a very charming Beaceron (french shepherd).

The goal was to do an AHBA instinct-test together, Rival found this very boring and turned out to have more fun in the real work, since then we run an ASCA or AHBA trial every now and then.

In the past year, Rival has already achieved the ASCA STDs and the AHBA sheep level 1 titles! We are now training to also get a title with the ducks and cattle.


Farmtrialweekend   June  2022


Last weekend we participated for 2 days during the ASCA farmtrial weekend, organized by the DWAS.

On Thursday, Jax achieved his AFTDm with a qualifying score of 98 points. that afternoon we got 110.5 points from the cattle. On Friday we got a score of 101 point on cattle and a nice 111.5 on the mixed.

it took a while, but the certificates of last fall's trials have arrived!



march 2022

working cattle!


last weekend we worked cows again in Olderberkoop!because of the beautiful weather we were able to work outside!

Jax tamed the fresh cows before the training started.


The last trial this year!


We had only registered for the farm trials. Sheep, ducks and cows on Wednesday and 2 mixed farm trials on Thursday.


Jax still needed an advanced catle run and an advanced duck run, both were qualified and with that he also earned his AFTDd and AFTDc titles!!


On the sheep we had a fourth place with a nice score of 120.5 points!


One of the mixed farm trial was qualified and one did not.


It was a very nice weekend, with good weather and lots of nice people! We know what to work on for the next trials, next year.

AHBA trials at JJ Ranch

From August 11 to 15, the DWAS hosted some AHBA trials at the JJ ranch. From Friday, August 6, we already camped in the yard to build up the courses and to help tame the Cattle with Jax.


For Jax these were his first AHBA trials, we signed up for the HRD, the HTD and the HTAD (all in level 3). On Thursday we qualified all four HRD runs, we became 1x first, 2x second and 1x third. In addition, we won the High in trial (cow run of 93 points!).


We hadn't practiced enough for the field trials, the step from the Arena to the big field turned out to be just a bit too big. yet we qualified 1 of the sheep runs (Level 3).


On the Saturday we achieved two qualifying scores on the sheep arena trial.


So Jax got his HRD3s HRD3c and HTAD3s titles this weekend!!

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!

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!





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.
