Nadine and I have decided we want to do field tracking about once a month. She's concerned the squirrels will continue to be an issue for Cricket and keep her from getting a TDU. So, on Friday, September 28th, we met at Flaming Geyser.
The weather was a cool 58º, with minimal breeze. It had rained the day before so the ground/grass was still wet. The grass was about mid-calf in most places. Gimme's track was aged 1:15.
Gimme thoroughly enjoyed herself and did a great job. This age is pretty young for field tracking and the conditions were ideal to hold a lot of scent. So after she did her usual zig-zag from side-to-side on the first leg, then she was rock solid to the end.
I want to do more aging for her on field tracking. She should be able to do it easily, it's just a matter of planning for all the time it takes. I may have Nadine lay a well-marked track right before we leave. Then I can go up the hill to see my Mom and come back when it's got some time on it.
