Camo is compulsory, or is it a new fashion?
Field trials are as true to normal hunting as possible so competitors wear camo as they would in the field hunting.
New kids on the block watching the first few dogs working.
Waiting our turn.
Bailey's first ever pheasant!!
The day before she had tried to retrieve a rooster but spent more time playing with it. So it was a relief when she returned at speed, like she had done it a thousand times.
Relief after the first session of the day.
Guns and trialists.
A snoozy spectator in the winter sun. Especially after the four thirty am starts to get to the venue.
Retrieving a pigeon.
A easy test after the pheasant but a little confusing for the young dogs. Just as they had got used to bigger birds.
Out the blocks!!
Eye's fixed on her bird.
The water retrieve.
Setting up for the water retrieve.
Nothing like a dip in freezing water to cool off on a sunny winters day!
Bailey swam like a small motor boat.
Well Done, good girl.
