Guess who got 1st prize in junior young handler yesterday !!
Yep Mr Mischief!! Looks like Farmer Jacks got some competition.

Farmer Jack did brilliant too in his intermediate young handler and also the adult classes. Large classes of 10+ entries per class which makes for a great competition which is what we like. Jack was successful in each class ranging from 3rd to 8th placing winning  prizes in everyone's eyes entered.
