Thanks for the congrats! It was a lot of fun and I’m thrilled! 🙂

So I’m trying to *see*…. there is a hide on the sign and there is a hide to the right on the fencing near the tables, correct? I didn’t see any specific behaviors drawing her towards the fencing and you had two hides already in that area so it would be super easy to miss that. BUT I saw lots of interest and communication up on that sign. It looks like you DO see her showing that interest. Were you just gunshy to call an alert because of the history of falsing on high hides? I think, watching her bracketing, I’d have called it and risked the 1/2-hide loss if I were wrong. She also shows in several areas that there is a high hide somewhere. The first few times she went by the sign her nose was down and she didn’t catch it. This last time she does leave the hide but only (I think) because you gave her some body pressure to move on.

I noticed that Angie spent a bit of time searching low but only seemed to get caught up in “something else” around the (:58) mark.

Glad to hear that some of our training is having a positive effect! 🙂
