Ben is used as a top class hill dog at Hendre Owen Farm where his value, working upwards of fifteen hundred ewes and lambs and a 150 or so suckler cows, cannot be overstated. Add to this the fact that he has been supremely competitive on the trials field, winning more Open trials than Richard can remember, to go along with his impressive National and International resume. 1999-6th in the Welsh National and 7th in the Supreme Championship.
2002 5th in the World Trial and the winner of the One Man And His Dog televised trial; 2003 Reserve Supreme Champion and International Outwork Champion, and you have one of the greatest work dogs of the last decade.
Ben is producing quality hill and trial dogs to a variety of bitches. Taddymoor Cap, a Ben son, was placed in the top ten at the 2004 Supreme Championship and is a multiple Open trial winner; Richard Millichap's Lad, another Ben son, is also a multiple Open trial champion. Both will represent Wales at the coming World Championships in Ireland in July.

Silver's record speaks for itself. He is the best dog that I have ever worked with. From six months of age, I started to train him. And at under 8 months of age, he was on the trial field. And very quickly made his mark. Finishing 3rd in Nursery league ( Donegal Section ) and went on to win North of Ireland Nursery Final 2014 at 10 months of age . I am not quite sure , but I think Silver has won almost 15 opens, from February to August 2014. Being placed 6th in World Trial and crowned it off with winning the International Supreme Championship . I think he is the youngest dog to ever do this and also to win both Nursery Final and Supreme in the same year?
Silvers ability with sheep is the best I have ever seen. (And yes this is a big statement) . But Silver has a tremendous nack at landing at the right spot behind the sheep on the outrun. Sometimes looking as if he has stopped short and other times looking as if he has over shot. But if you wait until the sheep have lifted, you will discover that he is 100% correct every time. And he does this every time without command. Took me a little while to discover that he was best left to do this himself. Like his mother Becca , sheep seem to really like him . He applies the right amount of pressure, should the sheep be heavy or light. Just when I thought Silver couldn't impress me any more, he did. This happened in the final at he World Trial. Silver had a very good start. First outrun lift and fetch, almost perfect. Then on the turn back for the second packet of sheep, he got it wrong. Mainly my fault for not flanking him wide enough. And for such a young dog the amount of time spent trying to get him to go back on the right line. A fair amount of pressure applied, most dogs would have folded. But having reached the second packet from the wrong side. Silver just settled into the job, lifted the sheep and carried on as if nothing had ever happened.

Rainow Todd is a free flanking fast moving dog with a good steady follow, he is quick to respond to any commands. He was fully broken by 9 months and ran in his first open aged 13 months gaining 6th prize. His offspring are proving to be keen to work sheep at a young age and are strong willed. There are videos of his offspring on youtube, just contact me for the links. He has a great hip score and also carries the red gene so can breed red pups.

Bob has a first class working pedigree taking in many of triallings highly regarded breeding and trialling dogs, and it displays a nice balance shown between well established Scottish and Welsh breedlines.
"Power" is not about getting in first, its being able to stand your ground under extreme pressure. He came 7th in the English National and was the winner of the English heat of One Man and His Dog when he was only two.
One year after an injury at work which resulted in severed ligaments to a hock joint, (an injury that would finish most dogs), Bob bounced back to take the National Shepherds Trophy at the next National.
Bob is an excellent work dog who needs very little commanding and works well on his own initiative. With an abundance of controlled power, Bob really has the heart of a lion.

Drift has a high-class working pedigree displaying many of triallings most successful competition and breeding dogs. His sire, Turk 178034, descends through the well proven and recognised lines of Fortune's Glen and Thomas Longton's English National Brace Champion Maggie 140478. Maggie was a full sister to Thomas' English National Driving Champion Tweed 140476 and they both return in lineage to the unreserved power of the International Supreme Champion Bosworth Cooon 34186 and Reserve International Supreme Champion Gyp 38336. Drift's dam, Jess 219788, is extremely well bred in her own right, descending as she does from International Supreme Champion Davy 131049 and John Templeton's triple Scottish National Champion Roy 114678, through Roy's first born son, John Bathgate's Vic 128240, the 1984 Scottish National Driving Champion.
Drift, like his father was easy to train and a real balancer of sheep. He is confident at daily work and will work lambs as well as ewes. Placed at open trials Drift is a dual purpose dog.

Sid is a tremendous work dog . He is absolutely tireless when it comes to work. An Absolutely fantastic lambing dog. Just applying the correct amount of pressure to get the job done. If I have to fault him, it is that there is no 'Off Switch ' . Having won the Nursery Final 2012 , he went on to gain over 100 open points in that season . He trialled quite well in 2013 . But seemed to get stronger and pushier towards the end of 2013 season . And me being what some people describe as a perfectionist , I took the decision to stop trialling him. As it was really bugging me that I could not stop him in the drive. Having said this , Sid will never be offered for sale. As he has proved himself to be a tremendous breeding dog also. Being the Father of the 2014 Supreme Champion Glencregg Silver and numerous other young dogs starting to appear on the trial field off him. He is one of those dogs that seems to click with almost any type of bitch . Passing on his work ethic and a superb temperament in nearly all his offspring . James P Mc Gee September 2014

Predominantly of Welsh bloodlines, Speed is bred back strongly on his sires side to John Thomas' highly successful Craig line. These same qualities are again displayed on the maternal side of his lineage through Mac 116944, who's great-grandfather Reserve Welsh National Champion Chip 29946, was Craig's sire. In fact Craig is line-bred to Chip as he also appears as a maternal great-grandfather on his dams side.
Speed working name Jake, This dog is a proven breeder clicking well with a variety of females. Offspring are forceful and bold, running in the Irish nursery finals and trials on the mainland. In professional hands Jake would have gone all the way.

Monty is a wonderful dog who always wants to be by my side helping me. He has the style for the trials field where he can either take flighty sheep gently or push heavy sheep round and also the power and natural ability to work a large flock of sheep. He won the 2004 English National at Piddinghoe by a clear margin of 13 points. He has a lovely friendly nature with people.

Astra Tweed is everyone's friend as he believes that everyone will be nice to him, he is the biggest softy in the canine world but when it comes to sheep, wow, he becomes a different dog. On sheep, Tweed is very strong in every sense of the word.
If you are wanting true power, Tweed is the dog for your bitch, I have never been stuck anywhere with sheep or cattle. Tweeds pups are showing the same determination to get the job done, but have proved easy to train, his first pups have done exceptionally well in Agility and Farmwork. The winter of 2005/6 will bring out his first ever pups to have the opportunity to compete on the trials field.
