Timp and Carol are the true “locals” at the trial, living just three miles away in Charleston, Utah. Timp is an 8–year-old Border Collie. Although generally shy and reserved and, in the past, would never think of getting on furniture, he now believes that he is entitled to a bed whenever he travels. Timp has been called a “negotiator” for his quiet, but usually persuasive way with sheep. Carol particularly likes that he has “no tension,” noting that he is a joy to work and trial – her “very special dog.” Carol is our Competition Manager and, along with our Festival Manager, Judy Klautt, are the new owners and manager of the Soldier Hollow Classic.
