Next week is the Sonoma Wine Country Sheepdog Trial at Sandy and Arthur Milberg's farm in Santa Rosa, CA. Both Mirk and Star will be running on the small, but treacherous fields in the open. Sandy runs 2 fields and somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 dogs. Half on each field on Saturday, then you switch and run the other. Scores are totaled Sunday after the 2 trials and winners announced. This is one of my favorite trials of the year, because of the beauty, hospitality and, of course...THE WINE!
Check back Monday or Tuesday next week for a full report with pictures.
