Gotland is one of my favorite places for the field trials. The landscape is special on this island, open and low, it seems that there is more sky on Gotland than anywhere else. Its almost always windy. And the birds are wild. It is a real challenge to achieve a prize in a field trial here, the dogs have to be precise and solid in their bird handling to manage the wild partridge. We had a nice training weekend together with the GSP club and today we were lucky to get 1st prize both with Thelma and Ray in open class! The weather was warm and sunny, with only a light breeze, huge grounds to cover and many wild partridge couples out in the fields enjoying the sun. More than pleased with our girls, they worked very well in the heat – with high speed and good range. Thelma’s next start is in elite class, Ray has one more 1st prize in open class to achieve.
