Message from the Chairman

Following a committee meeting this week we have decided to make the engraving of all trophies awarded here in East Anglia a condition of trial entry. Most trophy winners will receive prize money from which the cost of engraving will be deducted. We are capping the engraving cost at £15.00 and increasing the prize money in the novice class to cover this. Some of the trophies, ie the chairman's awards, will be engraved at our expense. All trophies will then be awarded at our annual dinner already engraved by us. We hope you will all support us in this attempt to keep our trophies up to date.
Many thanks
Denis Jenkins
Chairman

Team EASS Nursery Final Jackets 2022


Introducing Team EASS’s English Nursery Final jackets, kindly sponsored by Fakenham Farm & Equine Vets

Meet our Sponsors for the English Nursery Final

Meet the sponsors for Team EASS heading to the English Nursery Final 2022



“The practice opened in October 2021 and is owned and run by Howard Kellock and his wife Katrina. Howard has provided veterinary care in Norfolk for the last 10 years and recently decided to start up his own practice. This was prompted by the increasing corporate ownership of Large Animal Vets in the area as well as a desire to provide a better more bespoke service to the clients.  We have invested heavily in modern kit so that no aspect of first opinion veterinary services is neglected and a complete range of preventative and diagnostic services are available. It is important that your Vets stay up to date with modern medicine and advances which is why Howard is a member of both the British Cattle Veterinary Association and the British Equine Veterinary Association. On top of this he has recently completed his Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice with an emphasis on Cattle Production.

Supporting Howard and Katrina are their 2 children, Willow and Elijah and you will usually find Howard out on calls with his 2 energetic Border Collies, Travis and Nala.”


Why sponsor the EASS?


“Howard recently set up Fakenham Farm and Equine Vets in Norfolk.  He comes from a hill farm in North Cumbria where the working dogs are essential to being able to work on the rough ground and he has 2 Border Collies of his own.

Howard approached EASS because he is keen to help support local groups within the agricultural community.  Having personal experience working with Collies, he is keen to support anyone who highlights how fantastic working dogs can be.”

Winter Championship Trial Report - 14/02/2022

Message from our Chairman:


“Such a pleasure to judge the East Anglian Sheepdog Society’s Winter Championship trial yesterday. Some brilliant runs were had, in all three classes - congratulations to all of you who competed. It was very tight at the top, only one point separating Cradle Champion Kath Perry from reserve Grace Gower, only two points between Nursery Champion Sean Mynard and Reserve Arwyn Davies, and only five points between Novice Champion Ellie Street and Reserve Lucy Hogg. The standard at the top of the Nursery was astonishing, only three points separated the top four dogs.     

And the dog I would like to have taken home? 14 month old Eglwys Izzy run by Arwyn into Reserve spot in the Nursery, she was completely 'on it' but Arwyn handled her so well, in fact I think even he was surprised by her, and delighted, what a prospect for later this year. 

Highlight of the day? There were two....seeing Grace Gower finally manage to finish a course with Jim....and in style...and of course seeing  our own Kath Perry, our hard working treasurer/membership secretary and so much more, become the first winner of the Sally Else memorial salver.....perfect....”

Summer Series Aggregate Competitions

We run an aggregate competition throughout the Summer, awarding 6 points for a win down to 1 point for 6th place. From this list, we award to the highest placed Nursery, Novice and Open dogs who held that status at the first of our Summer Open trials. 

Open : Ben Smith & Roy (18 points) - The Lacy Scott Cup

Novice : Margaret Angood & Phoebe - The Brian & Kay Warren Memorial Rosebowl 

Nursery : Arwyn Davies & Cynfal Gwen (12 points) - The Cecil Murphy Memorial Trophy

Highest Placed Lady Handler : Dee Chapman & Braehead Sid and Sarah Jenkins & Bonnie (shared on 8 points) - The EASS Lady Handler Trophy

Highest Placed Dog Trained by its Handler : Ben Smith & Roy - The Deptford Award

Most National Qualifying Points Awarded to an EASS Local Member - The Heathgate Shield
There were actually 5 dogs who scored 8 points: Graham Baldry & Floss, Dee Chapman & Braehead Sid, Ed Hawkins & Roy, Sarah Jenkins with both Bonnie & Elsie. Only one of those 8 point totals contained 6 points for winning a trial, so this year’s winner is Graham Baldry & Floss 

The Birkbeck Trophy which goes to the highest placed EASS Local Member to qualify for the English Team to go forward to the International. Unfortunately in 2021, we had no one get through to the team, so this year it is not awarded. 

Winter Series Aggregate Competitions

Cradle : shared by Linsey Knocker & Sheila and Emily Elnaugh & Ned (11 points) - The EASS Cradle Salver 

Novice Handler : Emily Elnaugh & Ned (11 points) - The EASS Novice Handler Trophy
