The two homebred dogs pictured above (in the frame), Branch (blue) and Rascal (tri) were from my first two litters in shelties. They were both sired by Champion sons of CH Banchory High Born ROM and out of "High Born" granddaughters.
Thanks to Dee Strahan of Cypress Shelties for selling me the two bitches that produced them and giving me such a great start!! Dee was Branchs' co-breeder and owned/bred his sire - Am/Can CH Cypress Blue Buccaneer UD.

Thanks also to Bill and Irene Munsey, Donlyn Shelties for finishing Branchs' Am and Can Championships and for the final major on Rascal...(13 points, one major were owner-handled). Bill and Irene also owned Rascals' sire - Am/Can CH Kismets High Hammock Blue Jay CD.
 "Branch" was the first dog to carry the Highfields name. Both dogs were OFA Good.

"Branch" and "Rascal" are now waiting at the Rainbow Bridge, along with many of their descendents
which also include my precious OTCh Highfields First Frost UD (Brooke) and her two sons Highfields Silent Snowfall UDX (Banyan - pts/OTCH pts) and Highfields Wind N' Rain UD (Blizzard - OTCh pts), and I miss them all very much.  Highfields Icebreaker CDX (Beacon) was the last dog from that line and he went to the bridge in March 2013.  My original intention was to combine my old and new lines by breeding my little bi-black bitch, Highfields Free Flight (Glider- from the repeat Aspen x Boomer breeding), to  Beacon, but I discovered he had become sterile and had him neutered. Glider also went to the Rainbow Bridge in January 2013 - one day before her 13th birthday.

I "started over" in 1999 when Christy Clark (Glenlyle Shelties) and I purchased a bitch from Jennifer Houchins (Showcase Shelties), Highfields Natures Showcase (Aspen), and bred her to BIS/BISS Ch Shadow Hill's Air Force One (Boomer). Highfields Winter Weather (Badger - 10 points/Specialty major/Champion producer) owned by me, and his bi-black litter sister Glenlyle Fly Bi Night (Lena - 6 points) owned by Christy were the result of that breeding. Both these lovely dogs have gone on to the Rainbow Bridge.

Show dogs and hopefuls from the above lines are my inbred "Badger" son,  Ch Highfields Winter Landscape (Caper)Also, Ch Highfields Remember When (Denim) sired by BISS CH Cameo Dreamchaser out of Capers full sister, Highfields Almost Winter (Facet). Rounding out my numbers is my newest biblack girl  Highfields Unforgettable (Salena) sired by "Ch Denim" out of  Vankrols Bewitching Beauty (Salem). And of course there is 11 year old "Dollar", Highfields One for the Money, the small but mighty self proclaimed queen bee, who rules the others with an iron paw.

I also coown a lovely tricolor male, Highfields Gone Country ("Jackson") sired by Ch Denim out of Lyric. Jackson lives with primary owner, Colleen Kessler, and the lovely bi black,  Ch Gala Glamorous ("Gia"), who lives with primary owner, Ellen Ragland.

More on these dogs, and some of their relatives can be seen by visiting "Gentlemen", "Ladies" and "Puppy Place".
