This is the last 10 minutes of the 2.5 mile trail in the Inshriach Forest, Feshiebridge.
Our annual holiday to Aviemore begins with some sled training as the Cairngorms are covered in a blanket of heavy snow just as we arrive. John, Chena & Troy christen the new sled with a short run on the Race Trail. All 3 of them clearly loved it!
Chena pulls 1700 lbs to win the 61-80 lb class once again. Troy pulls for the first time in the main competition and gets to 600 lbs. He may need to work on his concentration just a little bit!
Louise travelled to Stafford County Showground with Sika & Troy for the first Championship Show of the year. Heavy snow the previous day meant it was a last minute decision whether to brave the possible weather and travel problems but in the end it was a good day and worth the trip. Troy took 3rd in his first Junior Dog Class, which qualifies him for Crufts 2014! Sika also took 3rd in Limit Bitch.
First news of the New Year is our exciting weekend in Kershope Forest, Cumbria, for Troy's first rally! What a fantastic weekend with some great people!
John has two wonderful days of racing with Chena & Troy who make a brilliant team!
They are in 1st place in D2 after day 1, and end up taking 2nd place after day 2. We couldn't be prouder or happier with their performance. Troy is a natural and it's so obvious that he loves it.
Thanks to Neil Kendall for this amazing shot!
