It has finally happened! Kate her pups out of Kevin Evans' Spot were born on Monday 6 December.
It has turned out a very interesting litter. After the initial surprise of the first pup, a white pup with a classic mask and a spot on her butt, the next 4 pups were very boring (lol) quite dark tricolored or black and white.
The last one to come was a white dog with a classic marked black and white head and a black saddle on his back. He had to be convinced to come out, but has since made his mark as the big boy of the litter.
Total score: 3 dogs and 3 bitches, of which 2 tricolored dogs and 1 (black and) white dog; 1 tricolored bitch, 1 black-white bitch and one white (and some black) bitch pup.
Pictures will follow and some of you may already have seen pictures on Facebook. As soon as I can find a helping hand to keep the pups in place (pff, they're an active bunch) I will make portraits for everyone to see and so I will end this update with a cliffhanger.....;)

News update from the kennel. Too much has happened since the last news brought on so I will keep this in telegram style ;)

- Flan won the last World Trial qualification trial and is now eligible for registration on merit (ROM) with the ISDS
- Kate will most likely be having pups of Kevin Evans' Spot mid december. Check out the 'pups & dogs for sale' section for more details.

This weekend Ron competed at the Austrian Championships and did very well. He won the Open Class Trial with Nell and came in 2nd place at the novice trial with Tom.
It was a great trial with wonderful people and a tremendous venue. We thank the organisers very much for that!
May 17, 2009
It's been a very interesting weekend with a very happy ending!
This weekend has witnessed the last qualifying trial for the Continental Championships 2009 that will be held in Zwitserland in September. Ron had a more or less secure placing with his young Kate after getting in 2nd place at the qualifying trial 2 weeks before, but Dorine and Glenn were not yet in the safety zone.
To make a long (and nerve wrecking) story short, we are very pleased to report that both Glenn and Kate have made it to the Dutch team! What makes it even nicer is that Kate and Glenn both share the same mother (Crystal) and were born and raised on our farm. Glenn follows in his father Bill his footsteps. Bill was Continental Dutch team member in 2003.
April 9, 2009
On Saturday April 9 Jan gave birth to an enormous litter of 10 bitches and 2 dogs. The father is Glenn.
Pups available. If you are interested please let us know. The pups will be ISDS registered with the possibility of FCI registration. Pictures will follow soon.
April 6, 2009
A spring update:
The official trials season has started and along with all the puppies, young dogs in training and exams it has become incredibly hectic on the farm. Little Nellie has shown us she wants to stay as she has developed into a incredibly nice trials prospect and she will join Dorine's trial team.
The pups of Kate and Nell have grown tremendously. You will have to take my word on it as I haven't had time for new pictures as my exams have kept me quite busy lately. Sorry for that. I will try to make some pictures at the end of this week. This will almost be the goodbye pictures of some of the pups, as the first will be picked up at the end of this week.
On Wednesday Ron will keep the vet busy with the vaccinations, export health certificates and puppy passports. On Thursday the lady of the chips will give us a visit.
Only one bitch pup of Nell is still for sale. Who will give this pretty little lady a good home (picture)?
Penllwyn Jan was mated to Glenn and gave birth to a whooping 12 pups on the night of Friday to Saturday 4 April. Ten girls (tricolored and black and white) and 2 black and white dogs saw the light of day.
Last but not least, we still have 2 sheepdogs for sale that are dying to get to work: Kep and Jan.
February 28, 2009
I guess it's about time for an update on the latest here at Conquest Border Collies, as a lot has happened.
Our young dogs are developing nicely. Young Jan is starting to learn her sides and is doing a bit of driving and a small outrun. She is developing into a very classy yet determined little bitch who will make someone very happy in the future. Kep is lovely, but a little young to polish so he will remain on the sidelines for a bit (it's not like we don't have our hands full anyway). Trev is opening up and it looks like with a little time he will make a very fine dog. It was only a week ago that he decided he wouldn't have a stubborn ewe get her way and brought it back to her flock.
Little Nell made a wrong step on the field and was out of training for 1,5 week, but a little break has never done a young dog any harm and so now she is fired up to get back onto the field.
What else went on?
Kate gave birth to a sixtet last Sunday February 22 --> 5 bitches and 1 dog and so far it looks like all of them will have a good home when they leave us at 8 weeks old.
Nell has also pleased us with six pups last Friday morning February 27 -->4 bitches and 2 dogs. The X-ray a few days earlier revealed four pups, but two more decided to come out and boy did they want to come out. They're a lively bunch to say the least!
Furthermore, we thought it would be nice to give you a little update on how the last Nell x Mitch litter is doing now, so click on the puppy pictures of that litter to find out what they look like now (with some hints to what they're up to now).
Last but not least,
I will try to give a weekly photographic update on the pups. It will not be an update on a set time of the week, so check back regularly.
This is a unique opportunity to combine the best of two worlds: the peace of rural life in the central Green Heart of the Netherlands, sheepdog training combined with the excitement of city life in Amsterdam, the Hague and Utrecht, all within 30 minutes by car!
