For those of you wondering if we will be having the regular August trial again this year - the answer is NO.

Due to the amount of work and busy month of July for the Giant Aussie-Fest, we will not be having our regular

trials at the end of August.  Next year we may take up again with that old date.

 



Classes @ Tucker Creek

The Beginner I course will be 3 weeks in length with some gaps. It will be three weeks in length with Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30* p.m. to when we finish - count on at least 2 hours per class. The course is designed to get you started in herding and give you the very important fundamentals. Cost for the 6 sessions will be $95.00 and will include course material - scoresheets and final testing. *(time may change to 6 pm start)

Dates to be announced soon

I will take maximum 6 people per session and will run another Beginner I session in June starting neat the 19th and the days may be changed to Monday and Thursday. Further information will be posted here.  For those of you who aren't able to meet this Tuesday Thursday Schedule - I am working on an alternate day or days per week.

Cancellation of a class:  If I should need to cancel or re-schedule a class - I will notify you a week in advance. If you need to cancel a class - I would appreciate some notice - but understand there will be times that don't work out. Regarding rescheduling classes - I will do this if there are at least 2 people who need to catch up on a class and a time can be arranged. This course is a very method, progressive approach to getting the basics and it would be great if you could plan to make them all in order.

Daytime classes:  Not available until July - I work full time days and some evenings and weekends - busy now and until the end of June can't offer any day time classes as some of you have requested. Once July comes - I would be happy to re-vamp the herding schedule to accommodate folks.

Stock rental: Stock is available for rent from 12:00 noon. to 5 p.m. most Saturdays.  Charges are $15.00 for sheep, $10 for ducks. Private lessons may be available at a charge of $25.00 per lesson.  Instinct evaluation - no certificate - unofficial - $20.00. Please call ahead of time to set up a time for stock rental or private lessons.

We were extremely pleased to have Ernest Hartnagle and daughter Carol Ann Hartnagle (Las Rocosa Aussies) come to judge our trials in April 2008. 

The Hartnagle's were a pleasure to have here with us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
