The Quest Of The Holy Grail
World Sheepdog Trial 2011

The excitement this year is being able to take Gin to Cumbria, England this year and compete at the 2011 World Sheepdog Trial - competitors from around the world will be there, and we will be one of them!!  Gin and I are proud to be one of the teams to represent Canada this year.  This page will be dedicated to the road that Gin and I travelled to be able to be where we are today.
