All my boys are health tested which means they are x rayed for there hips and then the x ray is sent for certification to OFA. These results are posted on there web site
OFA have further information that you may need on hips.
The boys are also DNA tested for hereditary diseases This means that the puppies will not develop the disease that they were tested for. However, not all things are able to be tested by DNA or are hereditary.
Most of my lines come from my first border collies on the female side
Nell ,Ch Hollowshot Northern Dancer , and Skylar ,GR Ch Hollowshots a Twist of Fate come down from my first registered Border Collie Ruscombe Tansy of Hollowshot.who I called Bess. She was by the first ever border collie champion in England ,Show Champion Tilehouse Cassius Of Beagold.
Cassius gained this title in 1982 when border collies were able to compete for challange certificates known as C.C.'s and they have to gain three to become a champion.
Behind him were great working champions including Bosworth Coon and Wiston Cap , two of the great dogs winning I.S.D.S (International Sheepdog Society) trials and producing many great working dogs.
To become a full champion in England they have to pass a sheep herding test on Sheep An outrun,lift and fetch to the post to the handler. Then a short drive to a post then back to the pen , they have to pen the sheep and the gate has to be closed A time of 15 mins is allowed for this. Once completed then with your show championship you can be a Champion.
Ch HOllowshot Drift who is also in the lines of above dogs , was by the first full champion , CH Locheil Look North
Here are some of my Border Collies that came from England with me. Some of them are related to the first Show Champion Sh Ch Tilehouse Cassius Of Beagold including the top Canadian Border Collie Hollowshot A Twist of Fate
Many of the dogs I have bred have enjoyed the sport of the show ring. I have bred and shown them and now have several American Champions
Now we are able to show here in Canada and I have Canadian Champions to add to list
But keeping in mind most of my dogs, go as family pets.
My breeding lines came from England with me, I have introduced new bloodlines mainly through my male lineages dogs from Australia, New Zealand.
