    Default Rowdy (by Pirate) Lardy ABC Diamond 5 drill

    This morning we did Lardy's Diamond 5 drill. See page 39 of Vol III of his RJ Articles.
    Mark a-100 yds, Mb-55 yds, Mc-120 yds, M d & e (moma papa)-150 yds.
    After the launch of Md, Me would not go off. Rowdy said-HUMANS. Even though I ran Shadow as a test dog to see the fall areas, I had forgot to cock three of the four barrels. So we walked off the line, cocked the remaining barrels and came back and did Mark e. My diamond doesn't look as neat as Lardy's sketch but it got the job done.

    Back to the line for Mark e.

    I think I am done with these drills for a while.

    What a great winter day. Air temp was 70 deg when I left training grounds and water temp was 54 deg. We did a couple of short water blinds working on stayin off points.

    Wayne good job! Liked the cows in the background. It was nice to see the drill setup with the white coats.I unfortunately don't have that many white coats. Did you use BB or wingers for each of the stations? Do you ever run doubles on this? Yes there is only so many times you can do the drill and you move on. Great job Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice. Shows the foundation that was built early on by how the dog looks out exactly where you are needing him to and how controllable he is on the line. Nice work!

    All stations were Bumper Boys and Lou Magee standout gunners (stickmen). Lardy says to do only singles.
