Ch Gillaber Drummond Top UK Stud Dog 2006 * 2008 Dog World Competition

Jendie is an outstanding stud dog. His progeny include five individual Crufts CC winners, Crufts Pastoral Group winner in 2007 and both CC winners at Crufts 2008. He also sired the 2008 Herding Group winner at the World Winners Show in Stockholm, Sweden and many other group winners throughout Europe. He has been awarded a Roll of Merit by the Bearded Collie Club of America where he has more than five champion progeny. In the UK he has sired seven champions, including four Championship Show Group winners. It is said that the true quality of a dog lies in the progeny it produces. Jendie is a legend in his own lifetime.

Jendie and Tolly are no longer at public stud.

March 2011

Tolly, Ch Diotima Sea Wolf at Ramsgrove is Top Producing Stud Dog 2010 in both the UK and Sweden.

For the fifth year running our dogs sired CC winners at Crufts. This year they sired five class winners and the Dog CC winner, Jendie's son Ch Malandex Xactly Right for Kemelstowe. Congratulations to all concerned.

Following in his dad and grand dad's footsteps Tolly has proven himself an outstanding stud dog. In 2010 he was the top producing stud dog in both the UK and in Sweden. We are rightly proud of this very special Beardie. Tolly is no longer at public stud but we hope to have puppies available from him shortly.
