Dan finally got a rosette with a number on!

It was a show weekend this weekend so no paper mache work to report other than an almost ready to paint weasel and a couple of very small, quick pieces which I’ll post about tomorrow.

It was the UKA Waverunners show today at Newbury Showground and as usual it was blowing a gale there but at least the promised rain held off! I was very proud , if a little cold, today as Dan got 4th in the
Beginners Agility! His time wasn’t great (47 point something secs) and
he was 5s behind 3rd place (another of our club’s members) but it’s only his second agility clear
ever! The course was nice and simple with a couple of more testy bits
as it was being run as Novice too. The weave entry wasn’t
straightforward but as it was run on his more comfortable side he
managed it and did all 12. I was such a proud owner!
Myrtle on the other hand was a complete moose. I had great hopes for
the Jumping as it was a lovely course but as soon as we got to the
weaves she took off. I got her back and she did the weaves only to
take off again. I called it a day at that point! The agility was the
same course as Dan (obviously!) and she managed the first 2 jumps and
the tunnel before she took off again – this time to dig manically in a
heap of sand… The steeplechase was my last hope for her as she was
bound to be tired by this point. She did the first 6 or 7 jumps quite
nicely and then took off to raid the food van. She caused much
merriment, thankyou Sharon 😉 and at least she had a great time. I am
forlornly hanging on to the belief that it takes 6 months for what
they are doing at training to translate to the ring – please let it be true!
