The first of Scott's nursery dogs for the 2011 trial year is Reba.

Cy Peterson's Reba

Reba is a 2 year old red tri bitch owned by Cy Peterson of Georgia. She comes from a proven line of trial dogs. Her mother is the two time USBCHA National Champion (and reserve Champion), Star, owned by Eileen Steinman and handled by Alasdair MacRae.

Eileen Steinman's Star handled by Alasdair MacRae at the 2010 Plumb Lucky Trial.

Star was bred to Eileen's popular stud, Don, who was an Irish import brought over and handled by Alasdair. The breeding has been done 4 times and Reba is out of the third cross. The first cross had a couple of standouts in Alasdair's Rex and Ron Burkey's Sky and the second cross had Scott's Don who has been well chronicled in this blog.

We are hoping that Reba will be the standout in the third litter. Scott is enjoying training her but credits Cy for putting a good start on her. She is definitely a strong candidate to being one of the two nursery dogs that Scott will pick to run at the National finals but that is still a long way away.

Reba's first trial will be in Missourri at Larry Moore's Lc Farm's Stockdog Challenge May 6-8, 2011.
