Mazi is the last born pup, ever, from Meg. He came a day after his two sisters and was, I thought, the ugliest and biggest pup she had ever produced. Still, I had hoped for a boy and a big boy I got. Mazi means strong and handsome and I think Meg left the best to last. Mazi is an exciting young prospect. He seems to have a nice combination of both his mother and his father. He has a fantastic temperament, is very enthusiastic and is a tremendous listener. Sometimes he can be a handful but he is always trying to understand what I want him to do. He is a very scopey dog with a lovely natural outrun and is very quick and agile. He has a good forward gear, and is a strong shedding and penning dog. At home, he loves working with larger flock sizes, is competent on even the most difficult outruns on our farm and handles lambs and stroppy ewes with ease. He is such a pleasure with which to work as he is a very genuine and honest dog with a huge willingness to please.
Mazi started trialling in the nurseries in 2015 and he finished the season as the Carmarthenshire Nursery and Puppy Champion. He qualified to compete in the All Wales Nursery Final where he finished 7th overall. In 2016 Mazi moved into Open competition. I ran him in a couple of trials early season but decided he needed time to develop at home, doing work, so I kept him away from the trial field until August. Since then, he has come back to win 6 Open trials in a two month period. With a winter of work ahead of him, I am hoping he will develop further into a top quality Open trial dog and terrific work dog at home.
