We had another good agility weekend (for Barley at least)!

Went a few hours north for another trial and Barley picked up two more double-q's!!! Woo hoo! That is numbers 13 and 14... He also picked up 70 MACH points!!! Yay! He had some very nice runs, and one GREAT save where he was sooo close to taking an off-course jump.

Mira did pretty well and had some very nice parts. She popped the weaves on both jumpers runs... So we will be working on that this week. She is getting very very close! Her weave entries were very nice!

We only got one of Mira's runs on video, Nothing from Barley. I will try and post it soon.

sounds awesome, I know those double Q's are really hard to get....how many more points does he need for the MACH?
That sure sounds like a lot of double Q's!!! I'm impressed!!!!
Great job!

Yeah Barley and Jessica!!!!! I am so happy for you.

How many MACH points do you have total? I am glad to see you got 70 more. I want you at Nationals!!!! Purely selfish reasons :p:

Can't wait for the video.

Thank you all!

In order to get a MACH you need 20 Double-Q's and 750 points.

Right now Barley has 14 Double-Qs and 488 points... So we need 6 more Double-Qs and 262 points. I am starting to get excited!

As far as the National goes, you need 6 Double Q-s and 400 points (in the current calendar year). So far this year Barley has accumulated 9 Double-Qs and 342 points. So all we need is 58 points.... It is doable, but still not for sure. Getting 70 in one weekend is something we have never come close to before, so its not the standard... Whether we do it or not, I am still excited to try! I am so proud of my boy!
