Bah Ram Ewe Fun Run Recap

This was the first herding fun run that SNBCC has offered. The event was an overwhelming success. Despite the threat of snow, 25 dogs showed up to participate in the instinct testing and practice runs and judging education day. While the day was mostly filled with border collies, a Samoyed and Australian Shepherd also showed up to take part in the festivities. The club handed out membership forms to some interested parties and EVERY single dog was able to turn on and work the stock. The club will be looking at hosting a similar event later in the year.

Special "THANKS" goes out to Shinning Ranch and Stockdogs 4 Ewe for providing a facility and expertise for the event.

Enjoy some photos taken at the event:
