(May 09) Trip is only 9 weeks old as I write this, but shows style and focus when playing and also when watching stock. He is a huge thinker and I am excited to see how he will develop in his working style. Having both parents so talented and instinctive on stock, along with his fabulous grandfathers, Winslow and Foster, I am expecting Trip to live up to his name, Winslide’s Trip to the Top!
(May 2012) Trip is living up to his heritage and his name. He has been a willing partner learning some rally and obedience exercises easily and quickly. On stock he is powerful but extremely biddable, which is a great combination! At 7 mo. he was calmly moving a group of 3 mo. old lambs out of a 50′ pen quietly at a walk! I was stunned to say the least when he snuck in there and started to move them! I had no idea it was going to be such a joy to watch and not a disaster! He seems to know calmness is what is desired! He has taken to driving easily and we are currently working on preparing for our Open classes.
