Someone on Facebook posted this video:
And I was amazed to see some of these dogs do Lumen-leaps… the huge early ones where she springs with all 4 legs and tucks them up under her. There’s one almost straight away, then 2 more at 3:12
And ok, these dogs are smashing up the bars when they do these jumps BUT it just kind of makes me think that if dogs are in the International Border Collie Championship then they must be ok most of the time, and sometimes maybe they get a bad cue or can’t judge where to take off and get these weird jumps.
So… maybe Lu will be ok!!!!
I’ll be really, really interested to see if I get more back-leg stretch as the jumps get higher. Cos she stretches to take off still, but folds them up as she comes up over the bar but possibly as she has to ‘sail’ more, she’ll stretch her legs out more… we’ll see!
