RICKWOOD BOBBY SOCKS 'Rhea'
 
We bought our first Rough Collie in 1976 as a pet, she was a tricolour named Sheena. In 1978 we had the opportunity to purchase Rickwood Bobby Socks 'Rhea', shown left. She was a natural in the ring and a winner of many BOB's continuing through to veteran classes at Open and Club show level. Reah was mated to Jeffield Esquire and gave us our next bitch, another tricolour.

 
MAGENTA MASTERMIND 2 CC'S

In 1989 we purchased a tricolour from the Evad kennels, she was a daughter of the lovely Ch Matai Don Quixote, not shown extensively she
was mated in 1993 to Ch Abbeywater Faberge and from this litter we kept a dog Magenta Mastermind, who by the age of two had collected 2
C.C's, his first with BOB from Mrs D Clarke [Lynway] aged just 12 months. A year later he gained a 2nd CC from Mrs P Parry. He was my
heartache dog as he then decided he didn't like showing so he retired to the sofa.
