Thomson's win hunts at Omamari trials

Ideal conditions at Jim and Dawn Miller's property for the annual Omamari, sheepdog trials and with sheep off the property knowing their way around, it took pretty skilled work by the dogs to enable a completed run.

In the huntaway events the placings were hotly contested. The father and daughter combo of Guy and Claire Thomson each won a hunt, Guy the straight hunt and Claire in the zig zag event.
Claire, who competed with three dogs in these events gained placings with all her huntaways. A great effort!

Allen Nisbet with Pearl, who are now locals to this club, placed in both hunts. Pearl is coming back to her previous form of last year of which she was nearly unbeatable.
The yarding event was hard going with few pens. MORE>>

If you've never seen a dog trial, do so! It's amazing to see the dogs rounding up the sheep, and all the other 'tricks' they do... There's on in Ashburton in October 06.. any AMP show.

Or go to the Sheep Trial Association website for more info
