Only attended 3 shows in 2019, enjoying alternative activities with our little family instead.  That being said the 3 we did attend saw us gain some super results.

Well, we've not attended any shows since the GSCS in May and we're still enjoying a nice summer break doing different activities with the boys and girls, spending precious time with Morse and Marple while they're little and thoroughly enjoying watching them grow up

Meaning all Lignum Gordons that attended were in the cards. Thanks to our judge, Mrs Yvonne Slaughter for the placings and to those who kindly took photos to record our day.

Those also qualified and entered but were home on maternity duty were
Lignum Whirlwind JW 'Marmalade' and Lignum Miss Mossberg for Balnakeil 'Ziva'
Just as proud of these ladies!



Flying into the New Year, we wish you a wonderful 2019
