With the heavy winds we had Saturday and Sunday, I didn’t think I’d be able to do much training so I gave the guys a good workout on the treadmill. The winds died down to something below 20 mph on Sunday evening so I put the guys on some pigeons. I didn’t want the guys out in the pasture where they might spook the horses that are currently pastured there, so I kept them on check cords.
Elettra got the first two birds and while its all quickly coming back to her, we need to work on her steady-to-flush.
I worked Doc with Elettra on the next two birds.
Mia and Elettra got the last two birds and a Pheasant flew into the pasture while we were training. It was too good of an opportunity to pass up, so I took the girls out on check cords to find it. The Pheasant flushed halfway across the pasture; Mia did a nice job of remaining steady-to-flush, but Elettra never saw the bird as she was hunting the heavy grass.
It was too late to work Elvis, so I let him out to romp around the yard while I set the water.
