This is the water test from the RI National. Stick pond. Long mark (M2)thrown first at 170 yards. Gunner retired. M1 thrown at 90 ish yards. Go bird a wipeout flyer. There was an honour with this as well. Some dogs got lost in the weeds hunting for M1. Silk took a beeline to that long bird--over logs, it did not matter. It was awesome to see just what they can do if they have it in them.

I have trained at West Thompson and I like the grounds.

Does Trooper belong to Dawn?

No, the Trooper I am breeding to is Jim Drager's boy, formerly of PA, now in MT. I like the old Belvedere and Kiowa stuff. It seems to go well with the lines behind my girls.
