Houston Area Herding Association
March 24 and March 25, 2007 - Hempstead, TX

Four Test/Trials were held at the The Roux Crew farm of Dave Hall and Joy Sebastian-Hall on March 24th and 25th in Hempstead, TX.  This spacious site offered exhibitors a lovely setting for two days of herding events.  The Texas spring weather cooperated to make it a great weekend for all.

A wide variety of classes offered something for everyone.  There were Course B Sheep, Course A Sheep, Course A Ducks, Pre-Trial, and Herding Test classes offered both days.  Trial sheep were Dorper/Katahdin crosses and Test sheep were Dorper/Texel crosses.

The dogs’ work overall was very impressive and the qualifying rate was high.  Judges Sharol Hathaway and Sean Hathaway had many nice comments to make about the runs during their awards presentations.  There were a nice variety of breeds represented.  The sheep were very settled and worked well with all the entered breeds since a number of different breeds train at this site.
