This 6-year old dog, Hazel, is new to the Mary Minor team. This year her open dog sustained a terrible accident, leaving him unable to compete. Hazel is his younger sister and a very talented dog. She is Mary’s new “exciting partner” and she looks forward to many years competing with her. Mary comes from a 5th generation Nevada ranch family and she currently raises merino fine wool seed stock sheep as well as a small, registered angus herd. Mary says she has been “privilegedto find a line of dogs that suit her style” . . . and her focus has changed to seeing what she can do, not the obstacles or difficulties. Perhaps a less well-known fact about Mary is she also played intercollegiate basketball.
