Jersey's First Two JH Q's!

We went to Munfordville, KY for Jersey's first Junior Hunt Test experience at the Boiling Springs Lodge. As you can see by the pictures, the grounds are absolutely beautiful. We had a lot of fun with The Jers and she even earned her first two legs of her Junior Hunter title! We plan on going back in the spring to get the other two legs.

Sunday morning fog...so beautiful.
About to fall asleep after getting her 1st leg..it took a lot of coaxing to get her to sit up for this picture :)
A very proud Weimaraner puppy! Two legs down, and two to go.


A very proud owner and handler!

A Day in the Life of Jersey Girl

I have to admit, I really enjoy taking pictures AND Jersey Girl was looking particularly pretty, so I decided to get my camera out to let her get some modeling practice in...to take after her mom of course :) I think they came out GREAT!




Then we went to the field to practice for the upcoming Junior Hunter test.
Running through the field looking for quail...
Pooped out after the field
She still thinks she is a little puppy! Good thing Eli thinks she's still a little puppy too :)

Jersey's First NAVDAH Natural Ability Test

Jersey, along with Emma (her Auntie Em), had her first NAVDAH Hunt Test experience this weekend in Ohio. She didn't get her NA title because she refused to swim, but she had a great learning experience. Now, it's back to practicing in the fields and getting her on as many birds as we possibly can before her Junior Hunter test in Kentucky in less than two weeks. This is one busy puppy!!

Trying to get used to the different plants and stuff in the field...nothing like at home! She
has the scratches to prove it, too :(

Watching the judges walk up right before her run in the field...almost a perfect
stack and she's not even in the show ring :)

Standing pretty so I can get a great photo...

"Guess what Mom, I flushed three birds and pointed one!"


Two worn-out gals.

Will She or Won't She...That is the question

We took Jersey to the pond two days in a row to see if we could get her to swim so she can at least stand a chance at her Natural Ability test this weekend...after A LOT of work SHE SWAM on day 2!!!

Pointing the dead quail in the water...still not quite ready to go in.

If only her legs were a little longer she could reach it!

FINALLY!! She is so proud with her duck.

Jersey is in no way interested in retreiving the bumper from the water, but she will eventually go in for a dead bird. We are keeping our fingers crossed that she will do this on Saturday for the test :) If not, then we will try again in the spring and she will have one heck of a learning experience under her belt.

Next test: trying for her Junior Hunter in Kentucky October 24-25
