2000 USBCH Finals
For this year, we packed our equipment and headed to the pastures of El Reno in Oklahoma. 150 dogs, with their handlers, once again qualified to compete for North America's most prestigious working stockdog throphy. The month was October, and following a long season of drought in Oklahoma, the Finalists were welcomed by tornadoes, lightening storms, high winds and about a foot of rain. The trial was judged by two very successful handlers, Paul Turnbull from Northumberland, England and Bill Berhow from Montana.
