Ch. Gerstdale's Simon Says, JH "Simon"

SIMON is our fourth breeder-owner-handled Champion, and first (multiple!) Best in Specialty winner. He follows in big footsteps as his sire was a multiple Group and Specialty winner, and won the 1996 National Specialty. Simon began his show career early, winning his first points at 6 months old. At 10 months old he won Best of Opposite Sex in Sweepstakes at the ABC National Specialty! He proved himself once again to be a national-level contender at the 1997 ABC Western Futurity, where he also won Best of Opposite Sex.

Simon continued his winning ways until finishing by going Best of Winners at the Central California Brittany Club. This has been a lucky show for Simon -- he later retired the challenge trophy at this specialty by winning Best of Breed in 1997, 1998, and 2000! His fourth Specialty win was at Golden Empire in 2000, where we had a big day, as Simon's half-sister Maggie also won Best of Opposite Sex!

In 1998 Debbie tried her novice hand at hunt tests with Simon. With no formal training and little exposure to birds, Simon easily finished his Junior Hunter title in 4 straight tests. Simon may later get the chance to work on formal training for further titles down the road.

Ch. Gerstdale's Mad Money, SH "Maggie"

MAGGIE is the third generation of Gerstdale girls, a granddaughter of our original Brittany "Ginger". As a puppy Maggie lived in Florida with Marilyn Maxwell (Ginger's breeder), but came back to live in California when she was a year old. She began her show career soon after that, and finished in the space of 6 months, with 3 majors. Then the day after finishing, Maggie won Best of Opposite Sex at the Golden Empire Brittany Club.

In the spring of 2000, Maggie went to Bob & Rosita Richway for field training. She was soon broke and ready for Master Hunter stakes, but her novice handler decided it would be wiser to start off in Senior, to give a little room for handler error! :) Maggie and Debbie finished Senior Hunter in Fall of 2001, and now has 2 legs on her Master Hunter title. Maggie is a snappy hunter and an excellent retriever.

In January 2001, Maggie took a quick break from her field work to have her first litter, sired by Ch. Rolyart's Marque My Words, aka "Webster". Their son Ch. Rolyart Gerstdale Money Talks "Woody" (seen below), owned by Webster's breeders in Illinois, won Best in Sweepstakes at the 2001 ABC National Specialty, and shortly thereafter finished his Championship at just 12 months old. He also won a specialty Award of Merit at just 13 months, and is now a multiple Best of Breed winner.

Maggie's second litter by FC/AFC/NFC Shambo's Dark Shadow was born in November, 2003. Sandy River Maggie, a liver/white female owned by John Hancock in Wisconsin, already has field trial & show placements and was Third Money Female in the American Brittany Club Eastern Futurity Show in March, 2005.
