    Thanks for that picture. It was great. Love that info. The article really shows what Rex Carr did for people and the influence he had on the retrieving world and still has today!

    Mary Lynn, thank you for posting that great article from a long lost era where there were actual well written stories in our popular magazines.

    Predates me, I was a first year student in veterinary school when that picture was taken. I judged my first all age stake with Andrius A. (Peter) Jones in 1974 or 1975

    Well then let me simplify it, Ken. If all had applied that standard (you've got to be a FT hero to know anything) "we" (collective) would have no Trial success to go by. Those who didn't erect that barrier paved the way for the many who followed. I'm so greatful they did (personally).

    Here's to open minds.

    I also read it that way until I finished reading Ken's whole post, I'm not sure but I think you are both on the same side here. Reading the whole post it seems like Ken is very appreciative of Rex Carr and his very impressive legacy.

    I'm sure you're right John. He's a strong supporter of Lardy's work, as am I, and that's pretty much Carr method. It's hard to appreciate one and not the other. We all owe him a lot, even if we don't follow all the methodology. I just have even greater appreciation for how much influences Rex's work has had over the years in spite of his unconventional practice of not trialing. There were surely open minded visionaries who became his clients, and passed along those inovative ideas as years went by.
