Multiple Class In Show Winning



Fordy Jump2020



Born: 8 November 2017

We were so pleased to introduce Ford to our family in 2017, but as a slow maturing dog, he took time to fulfil his early promise. He has won Multiple Class In Shows (Specialty), Multiple Reserve Challenge Dog Specialty wins (one from the Puppy Class), as well as Multiple Class In Group (All Breeds) and Runner Up Best In Group awards. In 2019 he became a second generation National Specialty class winner! Ford took a few lengthy breaks from the show ring to allow him to mature, but we are proud that he returned to finished his Australian Championship Title quickly in 2021. More than anything, he has been a wonderful addition to our family with his kind and loving temperament - and is now retired to a beautiful life being spoilt with salted caramel ice-cream, puppacinos and weekend sleep-ins on the bed with Vic & Peter in Victoria!

Critique from the NSW Southern Dist Country BC Club Sunday Specialty 2019 judge Mrs K Sneath (Victoria) reads: "Another quality dog of excellent breed type. Just a tad longer in loin that the class winner. He has that free, smooth and tireless gait around the ring required of a herding dog. I would prefer he were a little stronger behind. Another well-balanced head with correct ears and soft expression. Feet tended to be more round than oval."

Critique from the 5th Border Collie National 2019 judge Mrs Heidi Poschacher (Borderline Country BCs) reads: "Wonderfully made, top quality, really typical Border Collie with all features that the breed requires, just wished the ears set a bit higher and the profile more parallel, wonderful on the move, wonderfully presented, wonderful Border Collie." Ford was awarded Opposite Limit In Show!

Critique from the BCCNSW Specialty 2022 judge Dr A Smith (Noblestarzz BCs) reads: "5 year old black and white male with an intelligent and alert expression, good length of neck with pronounced prosternum. Level topline flowing into a sloping croup. Long stride with reach and drive, correct double coat rich black in colour. Loved moving in the rain, winning a competitive Reserve Challenge Dog."
