Ah. there was a whole TV series based on sheep dog trials in the UK. ran forever. strangely popular it was. Probably still going. "Come by!"

One Man and his Dog. There were women competitors, but they used to wear beards as per Life of Brian.

Well they didn't really, but you felt like they would have done if it would have made them more acceptable. They wore dirty dungarees, put their hair up in caps and spoke like they smoked 80-a-day.

well the whole sheep dog trialing business is pretty serious and aside from that, it's a man world isn't it.

I imagine it'd be pretty hard for women in the UK to break into that sort of arena.

I wouldn't say chicks are too common on that particular circuit here, but certainly outback women are more acceptable here.
