What the L-, J and I-litter is doing in 2013:

The L-litter (Lady Julie X Eryri Jaff), born before Christmas 2012, is growing up very nicely: Here is Lightspeed Lionheart, the red boy, and Lightspeed Love Affair in classical black and white.

Lightspeed Lotus Leaf very much wants to become a cow-dog. She will work sheep, too, if asked, but if she gets her will (and she is quite good at getting her will) she will go off and collect the cattle, bulls and all!! As she is rather too young to do this, we were too occupied trying to call her off, when she was bringing in the Karin’s herd of Galloway cattle, that we havnt got around to doing a video yet. But here is a video of her working the sheep at six months old:

Also working and developing well are Lightspeed Light My Fire (Zippo), who is spending his sommer in the mountains in Alto Adige taking care of hundreds of cows, goats and sheep with his owner Daniel and his team-mates Ares and Kaos.


and Lightspeed Lifestyle (Twix), who is training for sheepdog trials, Agility and Obedience.


The I-litter (Lady Julie X Blackie at Conquest):


Lightspeed Ivory has been well and has passed the BGH1-(Obedience)-test twice, with 96 and 93 points and a first and second place. She also passed her Beginner herding test (Erweiterte Anlagenprüfung) And at the beginning of August she came fifth in her first GH-Beginner-trial. Congratulations!

Her brother Ian is running in Open Class trials in Italy in the meantime,


Here is Ian, who doesent often meet her mother Julie, but when he does they work together in perfect synchrony that is just beautiful to watch without the need to give them any commands.


The third Lightspeed I is brother Ice. He shows very nicely in sheepdog training, does some rescue work and has won his way into class 2 Agility. Well done, I’s!!

Lightspeed Jinx is doing very well again, too. She has recovered from her OCD operation as started the season 2013 with a first place in the Obedience competion BH1.


Little Jet (Guin X Blackie) is doing very well, too. Here is a training clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfrQYAIQVL0

We are very proud to announce that she has done well in trialling, too. She already has the trial points in class 1 she needs to breed under the rules of the ASDS. Very well done, considering that Julia and Jet come only sporadically to train on sheep.



Little Lightspeed Jeremy (Guin X Blackie) won the Erweiterte Anlagenprüfung at Hohe Wand with 97/100 points! Well done, little boy!

He has also started his official Agility career and passed a BH and BGH1 Obedience competition.
