All I know are the Open results. It was won by that chocolate Lab I was bragging on a few months ago.

1st Winston Mark Smith
2nd Bella Sam Milton
3rd Tex Mark Smith
4th Eddie Mark Smith

I saw the entire Open since I was the last dog to run in the final series and Winston ran a heck of a trial!

Twenty-something. One Pro dropped out with about 10 dogs. Nothing easy about the test!

Mark Edwards' truck. I think about 23-25 dogs.

I got to tell you, it was great not having to wait around all day to run, the mechanics were smooth and the weather was perfect! Small trials don't happen often but, when they do, it's a heck of a lot more fun.

Winston was on! He just about drilled the long retired punch bird in the final series whereas, my dog decided to go out to sea, swimming about 100 yards past it before he was called back in.

Booty what happened to you. sounds like this one was ripe for the pickens. You cant blame this one on Farmer.

Hey Mark, remember this thread? Someone would have gotten a great deal if they had bought this dog for $10,000.

I heard Farmer didn't want to run this trial because he knew he wouldn't have a chance since they weren't on his own grounds.

In fact, Farmer mentioned this weekend that he was going to try to get all the clubs to host their trial on his grounds from now on for the sole reason that no pro's would show up.

Talk about lowering entries. Now this is an idea. :wink:

Congrats David. That's awesome man. I'm pumped for you.

The simplest way to lower entries (other than to pick bad judges) is to hold only the all-age stakes.

Just sayin'.........

Like I said back then, I wish I had $10,000 laying around at that time. Tater would be at my house right now. :wink: I'm happy for David and he's very happy he kept her.

What's there to respond to?

You ask me what happened to my dog and I wrote what happened to him on the same thread you quoted me from. He went to sea on the last bird in the last series of the Open!

As far as the both of y'alls Farmer comments, if you don't think that running a lisenced trial on one's training grounds doesn't give one a big advantage, then y'all don't know as much about the game as I thought you did.

And yes, I know that there are other trials around the country that are hosted on a Pro's grounds. That still doesn't make it right, just like judging one's Pro is not right.

Some folks agreed with me privately this past weekend and they aren't going to comment on a public forum for political reasons.

Like I said on the other thread, I thought his intentions were good but the decision was not. And, we've all made bad decisions before.

Thankfully, Ouachita was run on neutral grounds and we were bested by better dogs that weekend!
