Thought for the day: “Man like water finds his own level”
Many pedigrees were extensively researched to find this lovely moderate 14 inch bitch, who will hopefully be the cornerstone for LochWind Shelties.
I believe very strongly that the best success, whether with horses or dogs, comes from breeding from a very strong, healthy, vigorous, proven tail line pedigree. As with my collies, I sought to find a bitch with that strong female line. Bitches who consistently generation after generation have produced champion stock and good breeding daughters. This line is undeniably all that and more.
Aisling should compliment Uno, who has already proven himself to be an exceptional sire.
As of 16.7.2017 Aisling is the dam of one Australian Champion from her first litter by Uno. Ch LochWind Gentle Smile. Also two of the litter are Herding Titled. LochWind Grand Design HIC. HT. PT. who is nearly half way to his Aust Ch title in the show ring and LochWind Grace Kelly HIC. HT.
