Excellent Standard came MANY hours later and we had a few little mistakes, but some nice moments and I was super happy with his contacts. I'm a little concerned about his weaves though...he's been running past them lately in trials which is very unusual for him. I can't think of anything specific that has happened to cause avoidance, so I'm wondering if he might be hurting a little somewhere. It's possible that he's just not *thinking*, but something seems a bit off. I have him checked out adjusted by my vet/chiro regularly, but I'll probably try to get him looked at this week, just in case.
It was a long day and we finished up with Excellent JWW around 6:30 pm. This was just an ugly, ugly course. I had a better plan in mind for the opening, but unfortunately, was a bit of a weenie in the execution. The second half was pretty good and he had no problems with the weaves, although I was managing them a bit more than usual.
Tomorrow is another early morning...too bad trials can't start at 5 *PM*...that would be much more up our alley! :)
