The Final day of the ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials, 2005

 

21 a heavy blanket of fog The Final day of the ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials, 2005 The Sunday morning, and the final day of this World Sheep Dog Trial, was unfortunately dawned with a heavy blanket of fog. The fog was so thick that you could barely see past the handlers standing out by the handlers post when you were standing at the Judge’s Box. This created for chaos for poor Simon Mosse who, when asked if he had phoned the guy upstairs, he replied that he had and put in a few words to ask him if he didn’t mind but we were meant to be starting at 8 am. Nothing was too ruined and by about 10 o’clock the trial was able to commence, starting with E Sievers, who was soon called off the field when the fog came back down. He was given a re-run a little later and after two more handlers had their turn.

21 sheep dog trial finals The Final day of the ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials, 2005Because of the incredibly hot afternoon, there were many handlers that either retired or were called off. The dogs were taking the worst toll, some finally becoming too tired to listen to the handler and running to find water.

The other obstacle seemed to be just in the first outrun and lift. Between the handler and the sheep there had been a fence that was opened up to let the sheep through in one place. This fence line seemed to confuse the dogs to a max, even causing Jim Cropper’s dog, Sid, to jump over the fence before continuing the run.

So, in the end, these were the results of the 16 runs:
