2011 Specialities



2011 has been an AMAZING year of specialities for all our dogs! It fills us with such pride when Border Collie specialists appreciate our dogs...


April 2011 - NSW Border Collie Club show
Judge: Mr Chris Moore

what a day for everyone at Macnallem!! After a short break from the ring we are pleased and honoured to announce that 'HARVEY' (Gr Ch Monochrome Maestro) was awarded DOG CHALLENGE, giving him enough points to become a GRAND CHAMPION.

'Harvey' and Courtney have been a wonderful team throughout 'Harvey's' 3 year Gr Ch campaign, winning countless BIG's and In Show awards - however, gaining those special last points at a speciality was more than we ever expected - just AWESOME!!
