 if you haven’t used the TSDA online entry or if you have a new dog since the last time that you used that system, you may want to check with Linda to confirm that you won’t have any issues when you make your entry.

We will run on 280 fresh Cheviot cross lambs from Jack and Kathy Knox. If we have more dogs than we can accommodate on fresh sheep, we will mix the lambs early on the first day.  Sheep replacement cost $300.

 

Due to Covid, NO meals will be available at the trial this year nor will we have any other organized meals at night.

 

Two Dogs per handler per class. Maximum of 100 dogs. If we are oversubscribed, it is likely that we’ll have a draw … preference to those with an early postmark.

 

Open will run Tuesday thru Friday. Nursery will run Saturday. DL on Sunday.

 

The plan is to run the same two courses that we ran last year …including the dog leg fetch.

 

The double lift will be the top 15 combined scores for 15 different handlers. No handler will run twice in the DL. We will run on 20 sheep on Sunday.

 

We will have a socially distanced handlers meeting at 5:00 pm on the 21st.

 

Updates will be on the Brenham SDT Facebook page but all “official” info will be posted on the TSDA web site.

 

Between the parasites and the predators, it has been a challenge to keep the lambs healthy and alive
this year. So much so that we are going to need to limit the number of dogs that we can run. Plans are
subject to change but our current plan is to draw for 90 dogs allowing for 2 dogs per handler. If you
draw one dog in then you will get both dogs in. There WILL NOT be a wait list. If/when handlers
withdraw, they won’t be replaced. In the end, if we end up running more than 80 dogs, it is likely that,
some sheep will need to be rerun in the first trial. Hopefully we’ve turned the corner but, if not, we
could have to reduce the numbers even further.

If you have questions please call or text Jamie at 281-831-5600. 

 

We will follow CDC and the State of Texas guidelines. Covid-19 statement to follow.
