    Tried out a new new dummy for the dummy launcher this afternoon...one with tails, so it flutters. :) We need to keep Bramble comfortable with shot, (she has her first shoot day next month), we took her out today. Probably left it slightly too late in the day at 3pm, dingy light and no wind, but nonetheless it was more about the shot than anything else.
    We have been aware her drive was a bit lackadaisical at best..but we are not really really bothered. BUT... when she saw the new dummy flying through the air she just flew down the paddock...:) Lovely to her her enthusiasm materialising at last...:)

    I am really pleased with her, it was a bit late in the day, and she was quick of the mark. Her steadiness is not usually a problem, so not a difficult fix. The dummy was a new one, so very exciting for her, you can see she wants to keep it! Little things easy to sort out. She is now associating good things with bangs, which is important, plus she is marking the fall well. :)
