Buddies Yearling Stakes 2019 – Pastoral

The latest of our Yearling Stakes heats was held at Working and Pastoral Breeds Association of Wales on Saturday 20th April.

Both working and pastoral classes had some fantastic entries, with judging from Mrs R Parry.

In this blog, we take a look at those who placed in the Pastoral heats.

Securing their place at the final from the dog class was Australian Shepherd, Allmark Ebony, – pet name Hamish. Handsome Hamish is owned by Angie Allan and is just starting his show career.

Joining Hamish at the final is Twinan Tight Squeeze JW, who won the Bitch Class. Welsh Corgi (Pembroke), Pancetta is 15 months old.

‘Pancetta lives life to the max. She has two CC’s, two reserve CC’s and her Junior Warrant. She also has three puppy group ‘threes’ at Champ shows, multiple Best Puppy in show wins at both general open shows and breed clubs and also took Top puppy in breed 2018.’ Say owners Tracy and Kath Irving.

Taking second place in the dog class was Bearded Collie, Kelligrews Kiss Under A Tree JW, pet name Po, who is owned by Lisa Bartlett.

‘We decided to name him Po, as when he was born he was so big he looked like the cartoon character, kung foo panda, and the name stuck. He is such a lovely boy and likes to jump into your arms not realising how big he is now.

He’s done very well in the show ring with lots of wins at open show and championship show level and was best puppy in show at the Bearded Collie club open show beating his litter sister.’ Says Lisa.

Taking second place in the bitch class was Norman & Jacqui Collinson’s 20-month-old Samoyed, Nikara Secret Love by Norjack JW – pet name, Kalise.

‘Kalise is Just a super loving dog full of life and energy. She took her 1st CC the same day she took 2nd in the Buddies Yearling Stakes. She also has 3 RCC’s, one of which was taken at Crufts. She took Pastoral Puppy Group 1 at Paignton 2018, Top Samoyed Puppy 2018 (Our Dogs) and Runner-up Overall Pastoral Puppy (Our Dogs) 2018.’ Says Jacqui.

Third in the dog class was won by Welsh Corgi (Pembroke), Crescent Hill Brynlea Moonglow (Imp USA).

12-month-old Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Kalkasi Super Cool, pet name Karla, took third in the bitch class.

‘Karla loves to hug. She took BP bitch at Manchester and BPIB Crufts.’ Says owner Yvonne Baverstock.

Elinor Thomas took RES in the dog class, with her Samoyed, Nikara Secret Agent.

Buddies Yearling stakes - Pastoral BitchLisa Bartlett took RES in the bitch class too, with her Bearded Collie, Kelligrews Kiss Under A Star JW, pet name Cora.

‘She is a very special little lady, named after the lady of the manor in Downtown Abbey, and that is exactly how she behaves. She has had an amazing puppy career, with lots of wins at open and championship show level including puppy group 1 at Windsor and East of England and reserve best puppy in show at east of England too.

She took 2 RCCs at 9 months of age, Top Bearded Collie Puppy and Top Pastoral Puppy 2019 in the ‘Our Dogs’ competition and was also Eukanuba Puppy of the Year class winner. She is handled by Connor (my son) and they make an amazing pair with a very special bond.’ Says Lisa.

Mrs Parry awarded VHC in the bitch class to Briard, Fostebrie Exotique Noir Of Kellbry JW SHCM.
