Longdorham Old English Sheepdogs

 

My Love affair with OES began in the early 1970, when I had my first puppy from the famous Florence Tilley (Shepton).  I was very  lucky to have chosen  Champion Folly Foot of Shepton  and Longdorham. Folly became top bitch in 1975/1976 and bred me some fabulous puppies , Champion Longdorham Sheep’s Folly ,Champion Longdorham Clowns Folly ,  Australian  Champion Longdorham Folly’s Shepherdess ,World Champion Longdorham Folly by George  from her first litter . Another of her offspring was Champion Longdorham Folly Footsteps, these name a few of my many winners.

My judging carer started when I was only 16 with Pyrenean Mountain Dogs ,  I believe I was one of the youngest people to award Challenge Certificates in the OES at only 28.  I have awarded CC in the breed 14 times including CRUFTS.

At present I am not showing my last home bred Champion, Multi  INT Champion Longdorham  Follow the Dream JW SH CM I went to the continent with him  and he gained  6 titles , French, Netherlands Belgium ,and Polish also Irish and of course English.

Buster is now in retirement and spends his time in the office with me each day , Walking with him his companion Fallow the Deerhound

I am the Secretary of Bournemouth Championship Show with 1950 classes, General Championship Show held in August each year..

This year I have joined the Committee of the South Western OES Club.

It is a great honour to have been asked to be the Co judge with Mrs Kim Reeves at this prestigious Show.   And I thank the Bobtail Club of Hungary for the invitation which is very much appreciated.

I am looking forward to judging the dogs and meeting the owner’s handlers.
