Bliss was also nice and smooth today. There were runs before hers and after hers where the dogs had the sheep just running around the course,

It was pretty hot when Wynn ran his last nursery run and in the words of one handler, "there had been much carnage" by the time his turn came. He actually ran very well but his set had wandered quite a bit off the drop point by the time he got there. Unfortunately, that meant that Wynn's first contact with his sheep was him having to run like hell and get into their faces to turn them to try and make the fetch panels. He missed by just a little bit but by then, his sheep were running and Wynn was having to work hard to just contain them.

There have been some complaints on the finals facebook page that information is hard to find so I'll post some places to find it again. I'm sorry that people are wanting more when there is so much out there to read about what is going on! I haven't had any trouble finding information when I am away from the fields in the camper and I want an update. I would suggest looking for the scores here: http://sheepdogfinals.org/wordpress1/ then move on to the descriptions of the open runs here: http://deltabluez.blogspot.com/ and if you want to read about the nursery runs, go here: http://haveeweherd.blogspot.com/
The facebook page for the nationals has some information but since they are posting so quickly on the finals website, they decided to just let that be the place to get the scores.
There is only WiFi in the open tent and everyone posting information is a volunteer so please be patient and they will get the info out as soon as they can.
Top 40 to the semis tomorrow. Starts at 7AM - information here on the live webcast: http://sheepdogfinals.org/wordpress1/live-webcast/
