2012 L & M SDT Results

Another year of the L & M Sheepdog Trial has come and gone.  We had handler's from all over on their way to the National Sheepdog Finals in Oregon.  We used our commercial ewes with May lambs and they proved to be a challenge but definitely workable.  Pens were tough to come by and the tiniest bit of wrong pressure was often the undoing of great runs.

Jean Gellings and Star won the Open overall belt buckle that Jay and Sue Nies of GE Associates in Martin, SD graciously donated. Don Helsley and Jessie won the Open Ranch overall jacket.  Don Helsley and Rene LaBree did a wonderful job of sorting out the runs!  Thanks to both of you!

Thanks to my husband, Mike, who worked the setout pen both days.  A HUGE thanks to our sons, Dustin and Brady who set sheep horseback all day both days.  They did a really great job!  My niece, Tashina, gave up her time both mornings to come scribe. My mom, Jean Hines, prepared a very nice handlers dinner for everyone Saturday night.  My dad, Bill Hines, played guitar and sang with everyone Saturday night as well.  Thanks to Jamie Spring for always being there and doing anything and everything.  

I really appreciated all the help from handlers as well.  You all pitched in whenever someone was needed and I'm grateful!  Dennis Edwards, Dennis Gellings, Stormy Winters, Bud Boudreau, Barb Ross, Vergil Holland, Jon Lamson, Gary DiPaolo and Dave and Judy Parker.  Sure hope I didn't miss anyone but please know you're all appreciated!  

Hope to see you all again next year!
