Top hunt runs at Mangakahia trials

Good entries once again for the Mangakahia sheepdog trials held at Twin Bridges with a particularly large number of runs on the Friday but relatively easy on the Saturday.

The big hill sorted out the long head run-out with the fitter dogs handling it okay but those that were not naturally fit struggling to cope.
Only one full pointed run-out and this was Murray Child's King even though he failed to finish in the placings.
Brian Robinson with Glen from Omana put together a tidy 96.5 score to head the final placings. Tony Hargreaves' Wilbur had a drift to the right near the bottom of the course and it was enough to cost them a win. Great to see Ian McKinnon place on this course.
