 Mikatura's Saddles'N'Spurs STDcsd, RD


Spur is a Sadi x Tuffy pup, 2006 edition!


September 8, 2010 - I just can't wait to tell you.......our little red Spur is now a WTCH!!!! She got 2 HIT cattle out of the 5 Black Sheep trials over Labour Day in Spokane.....beating out some top notch dogs on those runs. Wayne Kirby wanted to take her home, but he did call a run when he saw some wool stuck to her mouth. Wonder how that got there? She got her WTCH in the first 4 trials, and this was the first time she has been trialed in a year. Talk about stress...for me. On Monday everything went to hell, but we didn't care...she already got her job done.

Congratulations to Spur & her wonderful owner/handler Sue!!!


Spur Q'd again in the ASCA 2010-2011 Merit Awards!
 #3 Advanced Trial Dog - Cattle &
#5 Advanced Trial Dog - Ducks

October 2009 - Our 1st ASCA Nationals!  I didn't get in on pre-trials, so I had no idea what Spur would do after being penned up for over a week. Well, first off the little red devil got her first 'thanks' on sheep and ducks. Even after a not-so-good take pen, she came through with the rest of her run on cattle. Although I had to put the screws to her she made all obstacles, four cows through the center, and came in second with a respectable 102 from Wally Butler.   Add to that some great runs which resulted in Spur being #4 Open Sheep and #7 Open Ducks!


Spur had a great year!!!  ASCA Awards of Merit on ducks and sheep!!!

September 2009 - This last year we tested open trials with FEO.  Then I decided to trial at the Rustler's Roundup north of Spokane over Labor Day.  She got all her open titles in the first two trials.  Out of the 15 runs all scores were over 100 except two.    Her personal best was a 120 on cattle from Judge Roy Sage.  It was a text book run.  Her high score on sheep was a 115, and a 113 on ducks.  She won her first belt buckle, and some other beautiful prizes.

Molly x Ceilidh: 2002 puppy



It's hard to know what to say about Chyne, because I could go on and on and on!  She's Foss's best "right hand man" around the farm,

his truck buddy, bed buddy when they're away at trials, and she even helps keep his Wranglers up by letting him wear either of the two

beautiful silver belt buckles she won in 2006 and 2007 at the Three Rivers Working Australian Shepherd Association (Oregon) trials. 

Two years in a row Chyne came home with the High Combined Open Trial Champion buckle!
