Photos from Saturday

The trial this past weekend was at the farm I have posted about a couple of other times. It is a wonderful place for a trial, especially if you enjoy doing more than just watching runs. There are acres of land and farm roads to walk the dogs on, swimming in warm weather, the ambiance of a real farm, and the list goes on and on.

Here is a small section of what greets you as you arrive...their driveway is probably a 1/4 mile long!

Once you clear the woods, it opens up to the alpaca pasture.

Wandering around, here and there, are the most charming little touches. This very small Buddha was sitting on a tree stump. He's evidently been there awhile based on the mossy patina.

Here are the boys posing on one of the outbuilding's steps. This is another example of their good sit/stay as there was an alpaca behind me about 20 feet away in a small pen. That's what they are focusing on.

And as you can see, this lovely farm has all its ducks in a row! Wilson was quite mystified by this pile of Canada goose decoys. He definitely did a double take as we walked past.

Stepping across one of the outbuilding thresholds, I noticed this delightful footprint. Now I know why this particular agility trial is often lucky for me. It has a permanent good luck charm stamped on the property.

Just past the horseshoe print, was an old boat filled with end-of-season zinnias.

And last but certainly not least, another reason I love this trial is all the Cardigans! It is the only trial where Cardis sometimes outnumber the Pems or where I am not the sole Cardi person. This striking boy was just one of eight other Cardis enjoying the day.


  1. Ohhh I love the shot of the boys! I have a thing for barns and doors (and of course Cardigans:-))) Nice!

  2. Congrats on your great runs this weekend! And a lovely location, too! Sounds perfect.
