We came to the UK to live in 1997 having bred and shown Rough Collies in Australia since 1986. We campaigned and bred champions and all of the collies we owned and bred had English bloodlines.  When we first came back to the UK we observed a lot and showed infrequently and in 2000 we went back to Australia but returned in 2002.  For our first three years back we again did not show but attended many shows. 

In 2005 we were very lucky to have bought in partnership with Alison Grainger,  “Midge” (now Ch Samhaven Mystic Charm at Tremaro).  We had a lot of fun showing Midge who is a born showgirl and campaigned her to her title in 2010.  Since then we have bred five litters and are still enjoying showing and being actively involved with the breed.
