2007 U.S. Top Ten (#5 Hawkins System)
Indy finished quickly with big specialty majors & a CCA class placement. Indy was a littermate to our pivotal sire Ch. Southland’s Beyond The Glory, bred & born at Wyndlair Collies, co-bred by Jennie Duhon and owners Steve & Lisa Finken. As a champion, Indy became a dominant Collie special in the country, winning consistently in both specialty & all-breed competition – earning 2007 Top Ten (Hawkins) status. Some of his published critiques include:
A most impressive blue dog…He has a quality headpiece, very nice outline, and good movement.” – Judge Linda Simmons
A blue dog with plenty to appreciate, this boy had a good head with the most beautiful full round muzzle and pretty expression. In luxurious coat of good texture, he made a picture of balance and moved nicely, topping a number of lovely male specials.” – Judge Phyllis Autrey
A very beautiful blue male that presented himself well. A nice outline, pretty face on a nice long head…” – Judge Linda Tefelski
Very nice blue dog…very hard to miss.” – Judge Barbara Ridgeway
Indy also earned recognition as a producer, sire of multiple champions and 2010 Best In Show & Top Ten winner, Ch. Windcrest Swept Away, owned by Larry Willeford.
