|Bundarra Challenge cleaned up by Emma McMurrich and her dog Red.
The cattle were there to be put around this year. They did not want to be over pressured , but would respond to a good dog
in the right position. Most were able to complete the tasks in the first round but often the simpler alternative was taken. New
challenger Yo Aoki and Fox were the first team to stand out . They held their lead until Dan Matthews and Lance completed all
jobs for a total score. After that trying for a compete run saw the clock beat some, but Chad Reynolds and Gypsy with a very
quick run joined the finalists. Chris Bagnall and Turbo overcame a slow start to make it in along with Emma and Red who just stuck
to it and grabbed the final spot.
A couple of extra head were added for the final round, and in taking extra care to get them all through each challenge saw each
team slip at some point in the last go round. That is excepting Emma and Red , this team made sure they did the best they could
at each task and left time to pen, and when l say left time, l mean the finished with 2 seconds to spare. So glad regular competitor
old Red , took home the cash at last Well done Emma !!
