Alba Jess

The last but not least of Scott's nursery dogs is Jess.

Alba Jess
Jess is owned by Terry Sheaffer of Michigan and was bred by Alasdair and Patricia MacRae. Jess' father is Alasdair's imported Nap. Nap and Alasdair have won multiple open trials together and were on the US team at the World Trial last fall. Jess' mother is Alba Lynn - a daughter of Stu Ligon's Nick. Nick's pedigree is nothing short of royalty in the US trial world. His mother was Alasdair's great Nan, the only dog to win both the ISDS Supreme Championship and the USBCHA National Championship. Nick's father was Alasdair's Ben, also a USBCHA National Champion and Nick's littermate is Bill, a 3 time USBCHA Champion. On her mother's side Lynn is a half sister to the 2007 Scottish National champion and the 2006 Supreme brace champion. Lynn herself placed 5th in the 2008 USBCHA Nursery Nationals handled by Tricia MacRae.

Jess started her training with Scott this winter and has proven to have a good outrun like her father. She will start her trialing career at The Plumb Lucky Trial on April 16th.
