Hi,

      I live in Pennsylvania and get Comcast Cable (this is NOT a commercial for them!)  Through them I get the PCN channel.  Because of this I get to watch the Farm Show!!!!!  I haven't been there in years due to the fact that the weather is notoriously bad for the Farm Show so therefore I watch it on T.V.  Last year and this year I got to see the Sheep herding trial.  This year I got to see most of what they recorded three times (PCN always repeats what they film.)  I just wanted to comment how much I loved it, and see if anyone else saw it.  Next year I'm going in person!  I loved seeing so many smooth coated dogs and I'm in awe of what this breed is capable of (and the handlers-what patience!)

Emily Falk, who is on these boards, is the one, I believe, who is responsible for this trial, and deserves our thanks! I'm sure she had great help from others who have been known to post here at one time or another.

Hi! Yes, the Farm Show SDT is my trial Thank you for watching and for the great feedback! Our announcers were just fantastic: on the arena mic was Maggie Chambers and for the PCN TV broadcast we had the team of Sue Asten and Deb Mickey. They did such a good job of providing both run commentary and border collie/sheep/herding information for the public!

For those who'd like to watch the videos that were on Facebook livestream, check out my personal page: Emily Falk. We have well over 15,000 views online, which makes me really excited that it was so well-received! Will do it again next year as we continue to build the trial!

We had 50 teams competing and our winner was Amanda Milliken with Dorey. See you next year!

That looks like Mich. From years in the White House at the Bluegrass, I recognize (or think I recognize) some people more from the rear than from the front! 

 

PS - Edited to add that I saw her name listed later in the clip, but it still was funny to see her outline and posture, and recognize her before that.
