Hot scores at Waipaoa trials

HEATING UP: Warm weather made for a testing trial at the Waipaoa club’s event on Friday and Saturday but there were some pretty ‘hot’ scores too despite the conditions. Henry Gaddum and Magpie were pictured in action yarding their sheep. Picture by Donna Halley

The ewe lambs showed their stuff across both days, however, the run out on the long head claimed many a victim.

Waipaoa club would like to thank all sponsors, judges, workers and kitchen helpers for their efforts throughout the trial.

Jorge Story and Cruz came out on top in a low- scoring long head event.

Alan Smith put a good number up to win event two, the short head and yard, with the consistent Leo Edginton just behind.

Brad McHardy performed as well in winning the zig zag hunt with May, and a score of 97.5 points. Sam Shaw was half a point behind.

The top score of the trial came in event four, the straight hunt, when Gus Spence and Ben finished on 99.

There were good numbers across the board in terms of points scored.
