Adrian is looking forward to returning
to the event next year to see if Ace can
take out the first place title.
“Ace jumped higher than the winning
score in Casterton when he competed in
the Clare Show, so I think he could place
first next year,” said Adrian.
“Between the two shows he has grown
stronger and matured.
“I am very proud of him, he’s just such
a happy dog and so keen to jump.
“I’ve had to hold him back on his lead
at both shows when he has started pulling
because he is ready to jump.”

in his lifetime, admits that he loves Ace
because of his kind temperament.

follows me everywhere.

across the paddock to catch rabbits,” he

they truly are ‘Man’s best friend’.”
