Barrel Usage
« on: October 28, 2016, 09:07:57 AM »
Could someone tell me if we are ever going to see barrels in trials other than Xbarrelers? The big thread about how to perform the barrels and whiskers placements seem to have gone by the wayside. I have not seen any barrels at trials and they weren't used at champs. Just curious as whether I can use my barrel as a trash can if I don't need it anymore. lol

Thanks, Cathie Cage

Hi Cathy
The answer is yes it can happen. They may not be in every class but there could be one in Regular, TNG and Weavers.

is there a link to a nice cheep collapsable something that can be used as a barrel on amazon.com or something? I've seen then pop up in VT courses. Do we need the brush thingies or can we forgo those?

I've purchased a couple of different sizes of collapsible leaf barrels at Ace or a farm supply.  I've paid about $10 max per each on sale.

I've seen barrels in so many courses now that if there is a trial day without barrels someplace it seems odd.  And yes, also in Chances.
