Happy Birthday to Kinloch Kiwi and Kinloch Wynn

Happy Birthday to Kiwi and Wynn! They are one year old today. Time sure flies by.

Angie Driscoll of Kinloch Sheepdog (UK) sent me these fine young dogs this summer. Their dam is the talented Meg. Mag is an outstanding trial dog as well as a farm dog, Her tremendous work ethic is par to none. She is the 2011 Welsh Team Member for the World Team. She has won three open trial and placed in top six in 24 other trials.

Bobby Dalziel's Joe is the sire. Joe is one of the top dogs in the UK. His record is outstanding.

2009 Scottish National Champion

2006 International Supreme Champion
2010 Royal Welsh Show 'Champion of Champions' winner
2009 International Supreme Championship
3rd 2009 International Qualification
Semi-finalist 2008 World Sheepdog Trial
Winner of over 80 Open trials and well over another 60 top six placings in Open trials in the UK and Europe.

Kiwi as a pup. Look at the spark in her eyes!

I love the huge ears. What an adorable puppy.

Kiwi is in training with Scott Glen. She is learning to be a fine sheepdog and keeps Scott on his toes. She is learning the basics and is one of the Nursery prospects when she is ready to take that role. She will be one off my main trial dogs when she matures and will also be a house dog.

Wynn. He is the talented male. He is also getting his training with Scott and he will be one of my main trial dogs as he matures. He has a keen stock sense about him and a very nice working dog. I think Scott would like to have him stuffed in his Christmas stocking as a present but no such luck! His training is quite well and he is going to be a nice Nursery prospect.

I like this move, sideways and the keenness to his eyes.

Kiwi and Wynn will be one of my cornerstone for my foundation lines. It was a great honour to be able to get these talented dogs from Angie and I thank her greatly for them. She is the best resource for dogs from the UK. She also breeds some of the top lines and should you get a dog from her, you are getting the cream of the crop.

We want to wish Kiwi and Wynn a "Happy Birthday and many more to come!!"
