The Gray Herd and on to birds...
The pictures don't capture the excitement and joy of seeing our herd of Weims running through the fields and around the preserve. We lucked out with the weather on Wednesday, cool with temps in the high 60s/low 70s and a slight breeze - just perfect! Ready to run...Monty, Jam, Trudy and Savi.
Trudy was introduced to a chukar. She hasn't been on birds in a year but the natural ability is still there.
She sure had a great time and was so intense on the bird, that she wasn't fazed one bit when we shot the blank gun. A few more sessions and this girl will be ready for Junior Hunter :-)
Jam had a good run as well and even got to retrieve a bird. Savi was not left out of the fun, we just had a camera malfunction and her pictures didn't turn out. She found the bird, pointed and then carried it around proud as can be. Still a puppy, we are encouraging this behavior and love seeing how much drive and boldness she has.
