    So sorry for your loss. I've always enjoyed reading about her. And your tribute to her, accomplished and special war horse that she was, was fitting. Thanks for sharing a part of her with us.

    I use TT for my 500. I think the limitation on range comes from it being mounted kind of low on the 500. The cord on my 500 was too short for me to mount it high on a stickman so I picked up an...

    The derby can be an event to grow the sport with new people and still reward the best marking dogs and I think keeping it as doubles will help foster that.

    I've only run a few derbies but I'd like...
