Water marks: a third day of corners

Today, Laddie and our bird-girl and I all returned once again to the closest training property, today running twelve cheat-y water marks.

Laddie cheated the two most difficult ones, which I made the mistake of setting up so that I couldn't see he was cheating until too late, because rather dumbly I wasn't expecting him to cheat. What made them difficult, it turned out, wasn't the angle of entry or anything else about the geometry of the corner of the pond, but the length of the land entry -- in one case over 200y -- before Laddie reached the water entry.

But the good news is that Laddie took water on all the others. We still have work to do, of course, but depending on the particular pictures we run into, he may do well on some of the challenges we'll run into.
