**2012 RESERVE WELSH CHAMPION**
Meg was purchased as an 8-week-old pup and was a top-class bitch (limited only by the ineptitude of her handler!). She was a porsche to run - oodles of class and power (sometimes too much for light sheep!). She won her first Open trial as a 2 year old. This was a very special win as it was Angie's first year competing, first Open trial win, and it was on a big hill course in Scotland (well, it looked big at the time).
Meg was strong, stylish, focused, always keen, and never gave in or gave up. She had a huge engine and desire to work. She was also very quick with a strong, natural outrun. Very direct on her sheep, she would walk straight on to any kind of sheep.
Meg represented Wales 4 times; unfortunately having to put up with an inexperienced and often inept handler! At the 2010 Welsh National, Meg finished 6th on Day 3 qualifying her for the Welsh team for the 2011 World Trial. She competed for Wales at the 2012 and 2015 Internationals. Meg also qualifed for the 2013 Welsh team as reserve. She was the Reserve Welsh Champion in 2012.
Angie and Meg competed in severeal double fetch trials including the 2010 and 2011 Championship Double Fetch Final at Selattyn with their best placing being 5th in 2011, and the Talgarreg Double Fetch trial where she was 3rd in 2015, 4th in 2012 and 2014, and 6th in 2010.

Meg also has an enviable breeding record. She has had 4 litters, 21 pups in total. Fourteen pups are in 'trialling' homes. Of these 14, 12 have won or placed in trials.
From her first litter we kept two youngsters - Kinloch Sioux and Kinloch Tina. Sioux has won 19 trials and placed another 69 times in Open trials. In 2015 she won the prestigious Defaidty Hill trial double fetch. Tina has won an 3 trials in Wales. Both inherited Meg's speed, outrunning abilities and fantastic temperament. In the US, a litter brother, Kinloch River, qualified for the 2009 USBCHA Nursery Finals.
From her second litter, Kinloch Cian won the 2010 Brazilian National Championship for both cattle and sheep (ranch category). He was 3rd in the Brazilian National Championship Open cattle class in 2011. Kinloch Steffi has won and placed several times in trials. A litter sister, Kinloch Jenna, also performed well in trials in Switzerland.
From her third litter, Kinloch Penny won her first Open trial in August 2011 and has since won 6 and placed in 29 trials. In 2014 Penny finished 5th in the double fetch final of the Longshaw Sheep Dog Trial and she was 3rd in the Defaidty Hill trial double fetch final. Kinloch Keeper has placed in Open and Novice competitions, and Kinloch Kobe has won an Open SW event and placed in all 8 of his nursery starts (including one win). Kobe finished 10th in the 2011 All Wales Nursery Final. Kinloch Wynn in the USA has won and placed in Nursery trials in 2012 and won pro-novice trials in 2015.
From her last litter, Kinloch Mazi was the 2015 Carmarthenshire Nursery Champion and Kinloch Pippi also won or placed in every nursery trial in which she competed.
