Much better news today! It looks like Drift will make it to the Semi Finals on Saturday. It certainly didn't look like that at first. Scott sent him to the right again. Lots of dogs are getting lost on that side (I'm sending Hemp left tomorrow) and the wind is blowing to the handlers face so the hearing is not good. Drift needed two redirects but it wasn't that bad. His lift started well and it looked like he'd have an online fetch but shortly after, he let the sheep keep pushing to the right. He was trying to cover the handler's left when he should be covering the handler's right.
Hemp runs about 20th tomorrow and it's supposed to be cooler (fingers crossed). I'm really not expecting much since he's never seen sheep like these but I will take an example from Scott and keep trying even if it is a bad fetch.
