My Dad would love that, he has worked border collies most of his life, and still has five of them today. He only works a couple of dozen sheep now though, just to keep the dogs trained.
We had one bitch when I was very young that won every competition she was ever entered in but two. The first she had a bad day and came in second. The other she was on three legs after an accident, but she was so keen to enter that we could not keep her back, that day she came in third.
