A lovely sunny day was an auspicious start for Shilnavogie sheepdog trial on Saturday 17th September, on the premises of John Davison. The judge was Daniel McNeil and timekeeper was James Brown.
The results were as follows: 1st, Joe Maybin with Jill; 2nd, Hugh McNeil with Bob; 3rd, Darren Johnston with Kate; 4th, Rosemary Hoy with Molly; 5th Timmy Few with Sweep; 6th, Daniel Rea with Tess.
The Alex Davison Cup for best outrun, lift and fetch outside first and second went to Darren Johnston and the Artie McNeil Cup for best best drive, shed and pen outside first and second went to Timmy Rea with Sweep.
The best pen outside cup winners was Danny McNeil with Tim. The Jack McNeil Cup for best young handler went to Daniel Rea with Tess. The competition ‘guess the weight of the lambs’ went to Darren Johnston.
The committee would very much like to thank all those who gave so generously and the event sponsors.
Many thanks to everyone. The sum of £507 has been raised for this year’s chosen charity “Tiny Life”.
