The latest news from our place...
April 14th-The Mushrushes called and are breeding their good working female, Spader Good Onya Ginger, again. Last year she produced a wonderful set of pups that have gone on to look really great on stock. One of these is Spader's Stellar Cowboy (Toby), owned by Sarah Williams, MO. He's got what it takes to be a great one in the trial arena! See a video of "Toby" just below these comments.
March 5th-We just took some young dogs in for PennHIP, they all did great. Especially Valor, he ranked in the top 10% of the breed!
Congrats to Laura Fuller, her Rowdy son just achieved his CD Obedience Degree. Way to go guys!
Larry & Marilyn Painter of Kuawarri Kennels will be hosting 2 "Cow Camp" Training Clinics in April (7-11, 21-25) at their facility near Cleveland, MO. These clinics allow you to bring your dog in for 2 rounds of work with instruction from Larry each day, and you learn a lot while watching other handlers work their dogs. The facility is a great one, with a large indoor arena, outdoor arena, several pens, sheep and cattle. Larry and Marilyn are gracious hosts, and the atmosphere is laid-back and friendly.
