Ezra is Hebrew for "Helper" and that is what Ezra loves to do - Help!

Ezra loves to work anything. She gets mesmerized working ducks and those may be her favorite thing to work.

She is a VERY strong header/heeler. Very biddable. She rates very well, balances well - but we need to slow down!

Ezra started trialing in November 2005 and followed in her mom's footprints on ducks! In 2006 we started on sheep and cattle. Ezra went to her first trials on sheep AND cattle and I am very happy with her results (especially since I wasn't able to work her for a month before the trial!) finishing her started sheep title in two runs and then did some nice work on cattle.

Cattle, well, I am VERY pleased with how she worked. This was her first exposure in working cattle. Although she respected them she wasn't afraid to go in and get between them and the wall to pull them off or heel or head. She took a few licks and gave some back and kept working. Although she didn't qualify, it was a great exposure for her.

Fall 2007

WE GOT SOME CALVES!

I've finally been able to purchase some calves to grow and work the dogs on. These past few months as they grow, Courtney and Trouble have become a great team in working them. Ezra has also helped in her fashion of dog breaking them. She will hit heads and heels and hasn't minded one bit about being trampled or kicked. Just dusts herself off and keeps on going. I think she's a lot like her brother Cash!

Ezra picked up her 1st leg in Started Cattle in 2008; finished her Open Sheep title in 2009. In 2011 she finished her Started Cattle. In 2012 Ezra picked up a leg in Advanced Sheep and finished her Advanced Ducks and Open Cattle titles.

Starting off the year in 2013, Ezra picked up her first Advanced Cattle leg with a nice score of 102 with a 3rd place.  I hope to finish her soon and trial her the rest of the year in Cattle, working to get ready for Post Advanced and Ranch/Farm trials.

In May of 2013 I decided to try for Ezra's CD. The only training she had was in stock work but I figured most of that should transfer over. We entered our first trial in June (am/pm) and q in the PM trial as she broke her sit. Her 3rd trial was in July where she Q'd; her final three trials where a year later with about a couple warm ups prior to the day of trials. She q'd in her last trial, finishing her CD :- ) So it's true its never too late to teach an 'old' dog new tricks! Maybe we'll try Rally?

Yep, believe it or not, at almost 11 yrs young, I decided to show her in conformation. Well, it paid off. She came home with the points by going Winner's Bitch, Best of Winners and Best of Breed over a Special, under Senior Breeder Judge/Stockdog Judge Marie Murphy.
