!!!!!!!! STOP PRESS !!!!!! "Essex" is awarded a lovely BEST EXHIBIT IN GROUP 5 at Geelong Champ Show on Sunday 19/5/19 (and Best Intermediate in Group and Best of Breed), aged 22 months. Wonderful comments from Judge Mr M Wilkinson who stated the Essex reminded him of some of the older and popular successful lines. He himself owned a dog from this kennel and likened her to his boy!

******************** New Australian Champion for "Steadfast" Kennels *********************
"Essex" is an Australian Champion at 19 months of age!! This girl never disappoints in the ring and I am so indebted to Ron and Venessa Juckes for the support in making my dream a reality. And I think the best is yet to come..........

From go to whoa, the arrival of "Essex" has been 12 months in the making so she is indeed a special little girl. The only girl in a litter of 4, Essex was always destined to stay. She is the most loving of puppies and she is such a little showgirl in the ring. A huge thankyou to Ron and Venessa Juckes in Sth Africa for making this much-anticipated litter a possibility and for all their help and support along the way. Hopefully Essex can make her record making dad in Sth Africa a very proud daddy.

****OH WOW!!! " Essex" wins Reserve Bitch Challenge and Runner Up Best of Breed at Melbourne Royal, aged just 14.5 months. 58 Border collies entered. To say I am ecstatic is an understatement. She owned the ring that day. Very proud Breeder moment! *****[red}

"Essex" wins JUNIOR IN SHOW at Castlemaine Show, under lights, on Friday 7/12/18
and follows that result a year later with:

"Essex" wins BITCH CHALLENGE at Canberra Royal - 26 February 2022 and in the afternoon wins:

She has been a very consistent "Class In Group" winner during her show career to date. She is a stunning bitch with a glamorous, thick, black coat and a head and expression that make it hard for the Judges to ignore. What a ride so far....
