Lockehill has been blessed with a core of quality related bitches all decended from my foundation Stonehill Double Ur Pleasure "Molly".
The following are the current girls (I do not have stud dogs) in residence at Lockehill Shelties. I am down to just four bitches and plan to keep my numbers very low.
Lockehill A Song In My Heart "Tess" and
GCH Ch Paray's Panasonic x Lockehill Love Song
Tess and her sister Sally are Megan daughters. Both are beautiful but not alike in temperament. Tess is reserve and Sally is bold.
I bred Tess at two years old and she is a devoted mother like her dam (see Riley below). Sally is in her new home as her hips did not pass certification. Tess however, is certified excellent so will breed on. I have no idea why litter sisters, raised together and eating the same rations would have such different outcomes. Loosing Sally in my breeding program is a real tragedy for me, I hope Tess can pick up the slack.
Lockehill Traded For A Song "Riley"
Classic Chosen Protege x Lockehill A Song In My Heart
2018: Riley is my "keeper" from the Tess litter. She is still a baby but has some real promise. Shown at six weeks, again as a weedie five months, and twenty one months. I have hopes she will mature into a very pretty adult.
Riley is very smart and full of energy, much more than I have but she settles in nicely when I bring her in for some one-on-one. She would be great in agility, however I would not pass muster. I really should trim Riley's ears before I post her photo!
Lockehill Luck Be A Lady "Linda" and her sister Lockehill Fine Time To Leave Me "Lucille"
Kismet Breyston Luck of the Draw x Lockehill A Song In My Heart
These are Tess daughters by Chivas. I am growing them up to be show girls, both are quite promising. Right at 11 weeks are Linda on the left, Lucille right. Lucille is living up to her name as she is a funny wild child, she may settle as an adult but for now, life is a lark. Linda is more serious. Their mother Tess is tail female back to my Lottie and their sire Chivas is tail female back to Lucy.
I am so fortunate to be able to do the Lottie - Lucy cross again. Chivas is a young dog and I am sure he will finish, he already has a champion son from his first litter to make the show ring. Go to my Brag page and see his sister Macie who was Runner up to Best in Futurity at the 2018 National Specialty. His sire was BOB at the2017 National..
So far so good
