Hello, friends. You have arrived on Antelope Hill as autumn in the high desert trembles on the threshold of our favorite day, Halloween. If you are in a hurry, the site navigation buttons are at the bottom of the page, so scroll all the way down to find links to our Shelties and the Sheltie art, stories, and articles. But Antelope Hill is more than just the Shelties. Do come in, and don't forget to bring your imagination. Scroll on down this page for the news!
You have now stepped from the outside world onto Clan Duncan Virtual Hill. Antelope Hill is a real hill, a little bump of land somewhere in the high desert of the West. We invite you to join us in mid-autumn, where the garden has been withered by frost, where the Short-Eared Owls hunt every night, where the dry grasses blow in the desert winds, and where the wild nights and sharp stars breathe and sigh of Halloween.
Be sure to place your mouse over all the images, great and small, for more text. That is how I always get the last word!
We are celebrating on the Hill!
We are most pleased to report our second champion of 2011! Rachel finished in New Orleans, handled by her co-owner Thomas Biggs. I am so happy to be able to provide foundation stock of this caliber to other breeders. And I am best pleased that with Thomas and Wade, Rachel has a loving home where she will be hugged and cared for all her life, as well as contributing to the breed we love so much. Rachel is from our "Fab Four" litter, and is litter sister to Clan Duncan Dark Skies (at Davishall), Clan Duncan Luna Moth (major points), and our little fellow Ch. Clan Duncan Black Sea. We have high hopes for our Rachel daughter, Ruthie (Clan Duncan Moon River).
Glitter has come home with 6 pts, one major, to change her gown and play with her friends.
Our current furface you are seeing at the shows with Dottie is young Asher, Clan Duncan Windance Steel the Show. Asher is pictured above as a puppy, on the grooming table at the 2010 Sheltie National just after his 9-month birthday. He is co-owned and co-bred with Windance Shelties and lives with them. Asher is by Ch. Lacewood the Star Maker ex Royal Oaks Wisprs Dual Dream (daughter of Am/Can. Ch. Glamoor's Capture the Image). Asher loves to show, so he is having fun at his "new job." Currently, Asher sports 7 points and was recently RWD at the SSC of S. Nevada Specialty.
The Girls Page has been updated this time. There is a new photo of little Soldier on the Puppy Page, and new photos of the brand-new Galen puppies there as well, and as always, there's a brand-new Hill Page, where you will find our most recent activities.
I am still searching for descendents of my own old dogs, especially Clan Duncan Midnight Special (above). Maramet Capture the Spirit, a Midnight great-grandson, is still here, and I am so hoping we can get puppies from this sweet old gentleman.
