Dogs and horses have been a big part of my life since I was a young girl, a passionate animal lover.
 
I started showing gundogs in the early 1980s, returning to my equine activities in the early 1990s. 
 
I bought my first Bearded Collie in the late 1990s and  enjoyed much success making up 2 UK Champions; Ch/Ir Ch. Gallus Macracker at Kyleca JW ShCM (Ryan), a real gentleman who also produced some beautiful puppies making me very proud and Ch. Kyleca Spring Breeze JW (Jessica) who was homebred and with whom I had a very special bond. 
 
Today I share my life with our sole Bearded Collie Talraz Comedy Act for Kyleca (Daisy) who is rarely shown and always handled by her breeders when she dips her paw in the ring!
 
My time is now spent thoroughly enjoying  a judging career and I currently award CCs in Bearded Collies, Pyrenean Mountain Dogs, Australian Shepherds and Border Collies,
I have recently been passed by the UK Kennel Club to award CCs in Rough Collies, Shetland Sheepdogs and Dogue de Bordeaux during 2020 and more recently been approved to judge the Pastoral Group in 2021, a real privilege.
 
I consider myself extremely fortunate to be offered opportunities to judge overseas and to date that includes Canada, Germany and New Zealand, a real honour. 
I judge all breeds in the working and pastoral groups and when time allows thoroughly enjoy attending seminars to further my knowledge in breeds I love.
 
I have often visited Sweden and am thoroughly looking forward to the opportunity to judge this beautiful breed at your show.
