Kayos and Havoc Really late getting back on this thread! I will go check out 4 corners fb page.

Broken Arrow Herders is just a group of us that herd. It is not an official club but we have had several trials. We have another AKC trial and herding test in the spring. Trials are under the name of American Miniature Shepherd. Mindy Stevenson owns the farm and the stock and she helps us all for a small fee. She also breeds mini aussies.

Going out on Saturday in fact. There a few that come out from OKC area.

dogfaeries Kathy, have you looked at the photos that are up on 4 Corners Facebook? There are photos from the instinct test in Claremore, and there are several GSDs. I bet one of them is Mayhem! I'll have to go back and look.

dogfaeries Belinda, you should try with Rusti anyway. Sage acted like a complete idiot the second time she took the test. She chased the sheep like a maniac, and bit one on the butt, stopping to spit the wool out in one big puff (which made everyone laugh). She has crazy stupid prey drive. The judge said that she was young, to give her some time, and to try again. Okay, the dog was almost 2 years old at the time. She tried again this past March, and passed. The next day she went Best of Breed over 11 other GSDs. It was a happy weekend, LOL.

Diane, Mayhem passed her fist leg the same day as you at 4 corners. I surely saw you there????? We went pretty early tho.

We need one more leg but I think we are just going to go for an HT or PT. We are herding at Latigo Farms in Broken Arrow. Would have entered the HT in November but I had something else going on.
Awww, I didn't see Mayhem! We were trying to show inside in conformation in the morning, and had to take the test in the afternoon. The only other shepherd I saw was the male we brought (who was amazing). Tell me more about herding in Broken Arrow!!

kbella999 I'll keep a look out for another test. I'd like to get Rusti her certificate but her instinct is way over the top and she needs some downers. LOL She goes crazy at just the sight of sheep. She was around them once at a friends house and she tried to nip the ankles of the sheep. I figured she wouldn't pass a test so I didn't have her tested. She would be a blast to do herding with though. On a off subject, I'm taking Rusti to a "barn hunt" seminar in January. I think she will like that also.

dogfaeries Oh good! Yes it shows up as IT. One more and your guy has it! They usually have a test at the Wichita and Claremore shows. Maybe I'll try Russell out at Claremore. Both his parents have their instinct certificates.

kbella999 Actually it showed up this morning. I can't see your pictures here at work Diane, I will have to look when I get home. Mine is listed under IT. We will have to go to one more to get the certificate. Since the premium listed an AKC recording fee, I figured it should show up and it eventually did. I thought I heard a rumor that the instinct test was going to become a title in the future.

dogfaeries AND... (sorry)... This is Sage's evaluation sheet from the 2nd test that she passed. I can't believe I didn't lose it.

That's all I've got!
