Bluegrass 2011 Double Lift

I am assuming that everyone watched the live webcast of the double lift (if you missed it - you can still see it )
So you know by now that Alasdair MacRae and Star took the day, with Star's son, Don, and Scott in reserve (yet again a bridesmaid) and Tricia Macrae and Max not too far behind for 3rd place.
Scott would just like to say that he really thought he had a perfect line on his first fetch until he realized he was just a smidge too low to make the panel. On everything else, he and Donnie did very well and even got a perfect score on the international shed by all 3 judges.

Jill took almost the exact same picture of Scott shedding. I had to look at my blog again to see if it was the same.

I thought Don did such a great job with sheep that wanted to run - and Scott as usual did the most amazing handling job - I got very emotional watching! But I am retarded, I can't figure out how to watch the archived webcast, or maybe it's not on there yet. It froze up while I watched live and I missed the shed and pen - grrr.... but I am happy nonetheless it went so well! Congratulations!
