We were attending a friend’s horse show and when her horse Surely was done, we had Braamie meet her (he was sort of afraid of her). I set him on her back, and he stayed perfectly still so he wouldn’t fall off!

Halle at the Barn Hunt

Very excited as Halle attains another first for her breed. Now UKC CH URO1 UNJ UAGl VONLIN’S BRONZE STARDUST RA CD NA NAP NJP NJ-R TDI RATI RATN CGC, Halle finished her Barn Hunt Novice Title today. RATN, and only in 18 seconds! She was amazing. She also went High in all of Novice (look at that huge rosette). She also won a great gift basket with all kinds of treats, toys, etc. Halle is the first Kooikerhondje to get both the RATI (Instinct) and RATN title. And her daughter, Josie, is the second to finish both titles too.

If you haven’t tried barn hunting, you should. It is so much fun to watch how much they enjoy it.

Josie, now INT/UKC CH AMBERMOON CHRISTMAS STAR RN BN NAJ CD RATI RATN CGC was the second Kooikerhondje to achieve their RATN title (Novice Barn Hunt). 2nd to Halle, I might add. Josie did awesome finishing her title today with 2nd and 3rd place in 25 and 36 seconds. You have two minutes to find the rat, climb, and do the tunnel. I am so proud of both my girls. They did fabulous!

This is a picture of our Kooikerhondje Josie, now INT/UKC CH AMBERMOON CHRISTMAS STAR RN BN NAJ CD RATI RATN CGC. Josie won HIGH COMBINED Score, which means out of the two trials she did the best of all the dogs entered that day. What a great surprise and huge Rosette and great gift basket. Josie is the second Kooikerhondje to achieve their RATN title (Novice Barn Hunt). Second only to our girl Halle, her mother.
