WORKING PASTORAL - WALES - 2023
Unfortunately, in my opinion, the male Rough Collies that were shown under me didn’t have the quality of being a Champion, therefore I withheld the CC.
To all breeders and exhibitors of Rough Collies, I suggest a study of the KC breed standard with full consideration of quote ‘dog of great beauty’ ‘head and skull’ ‘gait/movement’ ‘coat/colour’.
A large number of dogs were not schooled in show mode and their presentation of coats was poor.
V (2) 1. Burrows’ Ch. Tiganlea Tinkerbell at Revdvicki. S/W, in good coat with a white collar, general good shape with nice bone and shaped feet, oval eye of good size, flat skull with ears being used well, BV. 2. Cook/Watkins’ Aniesh Forever Blue with Whatacoo. B/M, nice colour, in good body and condition, well bent stifles.
PD (1) 1. Lockyer’s Gataj Turn Back Time. G/S, with white collar and good outline, liked bone size and tight feet, small ears being used well, BP.
JD 3(1) 1. Congdon’s Aaronwell Ain’t He A Saint. S/W, steady temperament with length of leg, small ears being used well, nice body and type. 2. Edwards’ Tiganlea Remember The Days. In better coat but temperament not so steady, handler and dog need more confidence.
