Taking Stock at Red River Ex


Winnipeg, Man., home to the Red River Exhibition, hosted record crowds at their third annual Red River Ex Continental Stock Dog Championship.

With over $14,000 in prize money on the line, the event, which also includes a cattle handling class, attracted over 30 talented dogs and their handlers from Saskatchewan, Alberta, rural Manitoba and as far away as Texas.

Congratulations to Jared Epp of Dundurn, Sask., and his seven-year-old female, Bryn, who finished at 2:24. Second was Jimmey Walker of Hillsboro, Texas, and Pippa at 2:25; third were Campbell Forsyth of Ericksdale, Man., and Meg at 2:38.
