Forevr Farm Aussies
Whew! Two National Specialty Events back to back is so much fun but really exhausting...mostly for the people, as the dogs seem just fine!
Since this was being held in Jacksonville, we could not resist entering the older dogs last fall to try and qualify them to compete. Luck was with us and Evans competed with Porter and I ran Gracie at Level 4 in our first ever CPE National Event.
I'm so proud of Gracie! At 10.5 years of age, she ran with the best of them, qualifying in 6 our of 9 runs and even placing 3rd and 4th in two events. Porter qualified in 5 runs and also placed 3rd. (He was a bit distracted with 2 girls in season at home) Three days of National level agility with each dog running in 3 classes each day can get hectic, but we made it through.
The CPE Agility Nationals was extremely well organized, with incredible scheduling, so each ring ran super smoothly. Very impressed with the system. Lots of exhibitors came from all over the U.S. and Canada to the Jacksonville Equestrian Center. Congratulations to all who competed. Safe travels home!
