  • We are going to get a little creative with the run order to accommodate Berry's work schedule and the logistics of using the same sheep on two courses.  We will be running on two courses. the Small course will have approximately a 200 yard outrun and the large course about 350 yards. We will be using wool sheep from the Foote Ranch. The run order will be as follows.
