                                         FARMTRIAL FAQ’s

Touching livestock:
Touching livestock, either by stick or hand, is allowed as long as it is done in a gentle way. It is allowed
to pick up a duck by hand during sorting and take it out of (or put in) a pen. Touching livestock is
“handler assistance”, so it is up to the judge to take of points for this, but is not a disqualification.

Settle:
A settle is realized as soon as the last leg of the livestock stops moving and thus all livestock is standing
still (turning heads, waving tales etc. is allowed, it is not a freeze). It is up to the handler to call or signal
“this is my settle”. To prevent messing around, a handler may call “This is my settle” even if not all legs
stopped moving. (Same as “This is my attempt” in Stockdog trials.) It is up to the judge to take of points
for this. It is allowed that the handler stands immediately next to the livestock, this is “handler
assistance”, so it is up to the judge to take of points for this.

Settle against back fence / top fence: means anywhere against the back fence / top fence.

Settle near fence marked with cones: The ideal score is for a settle exactly at the marked area. It is up
to the judge to take of points for a settle outside the marked area, depending on the distance from that
area.

Start of the run:
If the set-up of the course requires that livestock, handler and dog have to be in the same pen before
the start of the run, the time starts when the dog is of leash and (whichever comes first):
1. The first gate is opened by handler, or 2. When the dog starts working the livestock.
It is not allowed to let the dog work the livestock as long he / she is on leash.

Gather:
The handler has to take position defined in the course setup.
After sending the dog, the handler is allowed to move anywhere in the arena, there is no handlers line
that leads to a predefined percentage loss of points or disqualification. However the ideal score requires
(besides the dogs work) a handler that keeps its position as marked (advanced) or straight line between
the Advanced and Open mark. So it is up to the judge to take of points for leaving the ideal position.

Attempts:
There is no maximum number of attempts to finish a part of the course or go through an obstacle.
