Cootie is our first home bred grand champion. She was a fun dog to show winning over champions from the bred by class before a year old. She finished her grand championship entirely owner handled at 17 months and was the number two owner handled border collie in 2015 (number one female). At the AKC Eukanuba National show in Orlando in December 2015, she received the second award of excellence. Cootie completed her Coursing Ability Title and FAST CAT title in 2017 and has stated herding and barn hunt training. She earned her first barn hunt title in 2018
For her first few shows, Cootie, as are many young dogs, was inconsistent in the ring. Mike called her my "one day dog" because one day she'd show well and win, but never 2 days in a row until she was 11 months old. Then she discovered the NOHS group ring where she could really show off her ability to move out and she began frequently winning or placing in the group ring.
Along with earning the CA, BCAT and RATI titles, she has started on sheep and isis continuing training for barn hunt.
GinnyJo started her show career in June 2017 going reserve to a 4 point major. I expect great things from her
Benny lives on a farm in central Virginia and loves the bottle lambs. He races to the 4-wheeler and jumps on any time it is started. Benny has been shown by his owner.
Several pups from her last litter will be in the conformation ring. They were also started on coursing and barn hunt at an early age.
Shockers first weekend out was a 4 day show and majors. He got 2 majors and a reserve. I'm proud of this young boy.
