Some of you may remember this summer Lucy and I had our first Open win together. It was a major accomplishment and I don't think I will ever forget that run. Especially the shed was so amazing! It was also the first time we won enough money to do something special!
The special thing I decided to do with our winnings was to order a custom shepherd's crook from George MacDonald of The Shepherd's Crook and Ewesful Acres.
George is a well-respected stickmaker and I have yet to own a proper crook. He works on carving sticks during the winter months, and I was so excited to get the email that my crook was ready - and he sent photos!
Yes, I am that excited about a stick.
Thank you, George. I am looking forward to picking up this treasure very soon - and it will always serve to remind me of Lucy and I, our partnership, and our first Open win together. I hope it was not our last!
