Sep 3 New Barn Hunt Champion RATCH! This was Tristan’s Barn Hunt retirement run, and he pulled off a High in Class too. Reflecting on his ratting history, he really had a phenomenal run in Champion level. Starting after almost 4 years off with a refresher run, he then qualified in 4 in a row, then handler error (called clear just as he was digging up the last rat.. ouch), then qualified in 6 in a row for his 10 Champion level Qs, most of which were after he turned 10. He also placed in every single qualified run, including multiple High in Classes. We pulled plenty of 5 rat draws – 1x1rat, 1x2rats, 2x4rats, 6x5rats. As part of the barn experience, which is held at a cow farm, he was unfazed by plentiful flies, a regular train route, a heat wave, high winds and rains. The time was well spent; we had a rat blast and I’m just so proud of him. ? He currently remains the only Master Whippet and now Champion Whippet in Canada.
