Kinloch Wynn

Scott's first nursery dog this year is Diane Pagel's Wynn.
Diane Pagel's Wynn
Wynn was bred by Angie Driscoll from Kinloch Sheepdogs in Wales and was imported along with his sister, Kiwi, by Diane when they were 8 months old.  Both pups were sent directly to Canada to our kennel.

Wynn has been with us ever since while Kiwi is sometimes in training with us, and sometimes goes home with Diane to her Delta Bluez kennel in Washington State to get practical farm experience.
Wynn's father is Bobby Dalziel's Joe, a winner of over 80 open trials in the UK.

 Joe has also won the Scottish Nationals twice and the International Supreme.
Wynn's dam is Angie's Meg. Meg is a US bred dog from Geri Byrne in Oregon.  When Angie moved from Alberta, Canada back to the UK, Meg went with her.

 Meg is a littermate to Derek Scrimgeor's Fleece who twice placed fifth in the English Nationals.  Meg herself has won several open trials (the first one when she was only 2 years old) has run in three Welsh Nationals, and ran on the Welsh team in the 2010 World Trial.

Nursery Dog Wynn
We are excited to have Wynn in North America and we are hoping he will follow in his father's famous footsteps.  He is a bold worker who gets better all the time as he gains training and experience and we are hoping to breed a bitch to him at the end of his nursery year.  Wynn's first trial will be the Happy Hollow Sheepdog trial in Russellville, MO on April 28-19.
