Nan has been my main Open dog since Tess retired. She is very talented and give me her all. I love this dog and how well she works for me. She won five open trials in 2011/12. Spot was the 2002 Reserve Scottish Nursery Final's Champion. She is also winning in 2013.
XE Maid (Imp Moss- Jonie Swanke/Michelle Howard x Alta-Pete Megan)
Maid just joined my Open trial string in 2012. We are looking forward to working with each other. She placed fifth in one of the first trials I ran her. Her sire, Imp Moss is the son of Bobby Henderson's International trial winner, Sweep. Scott Glen owned Maid and I was lucky enough to obtain her. We are teaming up well and she recently placed third in Open.
DeltaBluez Rainey (Delmar Scot x DeltaBluez Tess)
Scott is a grandson of Bobby Dalziel Wisp. Tess is our foundation female and one of the most talented dogs that I have ever run. Rainey is a wonderful dog to work. She is biddable but fearless and tried her heart for me. She has been winning or placing high in her debut in PN. She ran in Open and did well. She does most of the farm work and is an excellent farm dog.
Imp Sava (Aled Owen Roy x Alen Owen Dot)
Sava is a very talent and honest female. She will be moving up to Open next year. For the time being, she is running in PN and getting some seasoning. She has been placing third of higher in her PN trials. She won her last PN trial.
Sava is now owned by Janet Thorpe
Kinloch Wynn (Bobbi Dalziel's Joe x Kinloch Meg)
Wynn is a strong tri male. He is a very talented dog that ran in the USBCHA 2012 Sheepdog Finals in the Nursery Class. He finished 12th with Scott Glen. I really enjoy his kind and sweet nature. He is getting some sheep work around the farm to round him out. He is excellent at that.

DeltaBluez Tess (July 1998 - Feb 2013)
She was the dog that started it all. She was ROM (registered on Merit) and placed 6th in the 2001 USBCHA Sheepdog Nursery Finals. She also qualified and ran in two Open runs in the USBCHA Nationals Finals and qualified for more. She won many trials and her progency are talented trial dogs. Her daughters/sons to great-great daughters/sons are winning trial dogs on cattle and sheep. They also compete in the sheep and cattle USBCHA National Finals.
Tess is enjoying the retired life and accompanies me to trials and is my lap warmer. Tess is the dog we love dearly and is our special love!
Shiro was our first Border Collie. She was a handful and made us realize the committment you must have to raise a Border Collie. She was not a natural outrunner but worked sheep quite well. She was our farm dog and nothing ever stopped her. She was fearless and could move the most ornery ram. She was loyal, loving and had a heart heart for love. She loved Getty and was his heart dog. She brought joy to our lives. We still miss her. She passed away in 2008 but still remains in our hearts.
