    Default Rowdy (by Pirate) Swimby progress

    Rowdy is making progress in swimby. This is back to the scary frog pond. My other pond started getting a little low again. But its going to rain tonight and tomorrow. I like the other pond the best because of more gentle slopes. This allows me to carry the over cast further up the bank. In this pond if he takes another step he will be out of sight as he will go over the levee.

    The wind was horrible today. A cold front is moving in along with stormy weather.

    Great video. For someone who is just starting out its great to be able to follow along and see how someone with a little more experience does it. Keep up the videos.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Wayne Great video. I don't usually let mine run out of the water to me. Just my way of doing it. That storm is up here now tonight and tomorrow heavy rain and wind. Hope that is all.

    Swimby for Rowdy has been very frustrating. It's not Rowdy but the weather. This morning: frost, strong north wind, air temp 38, water temp 52. I have started and stopped at least three times. This is supposed to be spring, right? Looks like we can restart on Monday.

    Very nice Wayne. I am smoothing out swimby tomorrow and will hopefully proof on another pond Sunday. Scotch and Rowdy are right at the same age and your videos have been great visual aids for us. Thanks and keep um coming!

    Nice video!

    your weather could be worse Wayne. I had 9 degrees this morning and all of our water still has 2 feet of ice over it. Water work is weeks away! Still training on frozen rivers and hard pack snow.
