Summer has arrived!! Quadpaws and Kelluki

 We had a couple of weekends off shows which was nice as we did need some time to sort bits in the garden but also do some jobs in the field. I have found out that I have to move fields so that has been very stressful! Especially after spending a lot of time and money putting grass seed down to prepare the field for winter 😔 I won't be without a field but its less than ideal! 

I have started buying some summer flowers, I love these Petunias!

And the monster tomatoes have made it outside...shelties for scale! 

The majority of over 40's are now vaccinated against Coronavirus, I had my jab in the middle of May and felt dreadful after it but it was worth doing for peace of mind and to protect other people. The pubs opened again from May 17th and me and my lovely friends Cathy and Annie went for a meal out and sat outside in the pub garden. It was FREEZING!! The pub provided blankets and hot water bottles thank goodness 😂 Here is a photo of me looking like ET!! 

Our blankets were very snuggly!

Then about a week later the sunshine arrived! Here are a few tyre pics! 

Some random photos...Spark trying her 'cuddle' trick out on a walk! 

Shelties love a box to climb in!! 

And Spark loves a log to climb on! 

Some sheltie sofa snuggles!

On Saturday I took Spark to Quadpaws to do the Masters competition with her. She was awesome in the agility and came just 0.1 seconds behind the winner (shame I didn't do the two blinds that I could have done as I might have squeaked the win and qualified for the finals that way!)  I was very happy to go clear though! The jumping was not our sort of course (unlike the agility which is below) and I'm still kicking myself that I forgot a front cross before the wall as it put me behind and although Spark helped me out I got a really bad turn! Still managed to go clear but finished 3rd and the top two qualify! 

Its such a pretty venue! 

The agility course

And her jumping run that a friend kindly filmed...I had planned a front cross before the wall! It was also the first show that I have gone to post covid that felt normal! No wearing masks round the ring! 

On Sunday we went to Kelluki, Bru had his first Grade 4 runs! He had a little blip in each jumping but managed to win the agility! It was so nice to see that all his jump skills were spot on as it was the first time he has had to do push rounds and threadles in the ring!

Smiling Rupert with his trophy!! 

Mr and Mrs! 

And Spark had a day off agility but did Hoopers in the ring for the first time! She missed a hoop but I was pleased with how she ran!
