Wins shared around

Annie Flood and Fye, Rod Mead and Gum, James Maher and Rogue, and Anthony Hughes and Joe shared the event titles at the Waipaoa Dog Trial Club event last Friday and Saturday.

The lambs on both heads worked well as did the two-tooth ewes on the hunts.

Waipaoa Station manager James Maher won the zig zag hunt, and the club would like to thank Waipaoa Station for providing the grounds, facilities and sheep.
