This is what I would call "a husband job." With Kel home, he gets dead rat duty. He was thrilled.
I worked on Fins weaves. Ran as fast as I could.
Good news: I can replicate the weave faultering behavior.
Bad news: I can replicate the weave faultering behavior.
I started working on a systematic approach to find where it is that she has confusion.
- Running about 3 feet to the side and just infront of her without excllerating she is fine.
- Accellerating past her too fast will result in her popping the last 3 poles.
- Running close will result in popped poles
- Running past her will also see the stopping "Confunded" state
My plan is to pull out my clean run and Susan Garrets weave pole tests and to work on this over the next month to see improvement. Interestingly enough, I'm not real worried. I'm NOT happy, but I have to accept that Fin is 21 months old and these things happen.
Once I get my video camera fixed, I'll work on a series to show improvement.
This weekend we are off to a USDAA show in LA. Trial report will be on Monday.
