The Saturday’s Semi-Finals / The ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials, 2005


18 1 The Saturday’s Semi Finals / The ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials, 2005On the Saturday, the Semi-finals of the 2005 World Sheep Dog Trial, 42 handlers came to the post to compete for the top 16 places in the Finals the next day. In that competition Jim Cropper and Sid came out with the best run of the day scoring 398, closely followed by both Euan MacKinnon with Glen and W McConnell with Jaff. In Fourth spot was Serge van der Zweep with Glen. Jim and Sid were the close runners up at the 2002 World Sheepdog Trials at Bala, only edged out of the winning spot by a hair and the run of Aled Owen and Bob.

18 2 The Saturday’s Semi Finals / The ISDS World Sheep Dog Trials, 2005For the Semi Finals it was decided to use the little Horned Hill sheep, as there were enough of them for the 42 Semi Finals runs but not enough of them for the 16 Finals runs to be held on the Sunday. There were enough Suffolk sheep for the finals day as so this was the obvious solution.

For that day, the results of the top 16 at the World Sheep Dog trial / Semi Finals were:
