Just had his hips scored 4.4 Excellent score as he was nearly three and has had a lot of exercise. For those viewing from overseas. These are very good A hips.
Some in the breed do not like him as they think he has no stop. But if they bothered to read the breed Standard they would see that it says stop slight but perceptible. Which describes his stop to perfection. Before the Kennel Club lowered the value of the breed Standards the Standards had a list of faults. One of the faults was too deep a stop. The reason for this is that if a Collie has a deep stop then its cheek bones will be very prominent. So this dog would not have the clean cheeks as is laid down in the Standard. Personally I do not like this type of head as it always goes with a lack of elegance. The Rough Collie should be a very elegant animal. Mostly all we see in the showring are short stuffy animals with no class about them at all. They are not very attractive and tend to put off the buying public.
He is now siring some big winners, especially in Europe.
