M&M's Show, Nic training and Christmas!

The shelties had fun at M&M's show each getting a competitive run and the two gingers also got an NFC run. Brooke came 2nd in her jumping run but managed to fall over in a tunnel and put her rib out! Poor girly has had three weeks off but is now ready to go for 2019! Mr Toad won his jumping and Bru won the C1-7 steeplechase with the fastest time over all heights...look at the little ginger go!! 

Look at what one of my lovely clients gave me! It was very yummy 😋

As Spark was in season and injured and Brooke was injured, Brodie got to step in on a Nicola Garrett training day! He hasn't done contacts for ages and I didn't know what he would do but he loved it! NOt bad considering he is almost 12!

Bru went to his Christmas party and played games, he wasn't very impressed at wearing his jumper! 

Little Brax has been poorly over Christmas and had a pancreatic flare up which has mean little sleep for us but she is on the mend now luckily. She is back doing little walks again and keeping her food down.

The gang all dressed up in their Christmas outfits! ❤

And little ginger snuggles!

For the first time ever I made my own Christmas cake! It is huge and tastes quite alcoholic!! Thanks to my Mum for being my Christmas cake guru!

I got this lovely painting of Toad from a friend to go with Brax who I had done earlier in the year for Matthew. Hannah is so talented and captures them so well! 

Sparkle and her fav brown thing!

The older shelties looking a bit put out in their Christmas jumpers!!

Christmas day chaos!!

Bru's first competitive run!

The three younger shelties competed at Pachesham independent show last weekend and wow they did so well! Brooke and Toad did their two runs competitively and we NFC'd two of Bru's runs but decided that the 1-3 steeplechase was so flowing that he could have a go for competition. He was such a clever boy and won it! So this is his very first sofa picture! 💛

Brodie came 2nd in the jumping and Brooke won her jumping! She also came 6th in the agility with a naughty 5f on the dog walk. My winter project is to get good dog walk training done with her and Bru! My Christmas pressi from Matt is a dog walk plank for the garden and I have got him a set of weaves 😂 At least we can do some more training at home that way. Bru's weaves are coming on nicely but he still goes too fast so we are going to do some 2x2's to make hi think more and run less! 

Now its December \I can post a pic of my Christmas cake! It is my first try at this (thanks Mum for the tips...if its half as good as yours I'll be happy!!)

The fleeces are out for some morning walks as well, it has been mild the last week but we woke up to frost today

And our advent calendar was delivered by Matt's Mum, the shelties always like to have a good sniff!

Little Bru is growing into such a handsome man! He won't stand still so this is as close to stacked as we get!

Some random cute pics off my phone!
