Sheltie News Informationen | Ausgabe 3 ~ 2018 12 glamorous because of the color. If anyone compares my numbers of pages and dogs with Felicity Rogers’ article, you will see that the numbers do not match. Rogers has fewer dogs old photo album ESSC Joan & Beryl Herbert with one of their “Shelert” dogs included in the article. Whether the reason is that there have been more dogs in the A-book after Felicity wrote her article in the 1966 Handbook (which is unlikely) or there it is yet another A-book placed in the “Riverhill” archive I do not know, because obviously Felicity had a different edition of the book when she wrote the article. It may be the next project to find this. Maybe someone should also take responsibility here and go to the Shetland Museum, and see if it is possible to find a copy of the B- book. When we had done the studying of the A-book we went through the other material that was displayed for us. It is very special to go through the old handwritten books, and peek through all the old photo albums with a large number of pictures we do not have set published before. Especially interesting was an album from the “Shelert” Archives, with old private photos that Joan and Beryl Herbert had donated to the club before they died. It was also interesting to see old pictures with winners from major exhibitions, such as Crufts in 1966 and beyond. Both the hair style, exhibitor dresses and appearance of the dogs have changed a lot since then, but the top winning dogs were without doubt very good. One of my favorites from the good old days is Ch. Riverhill Rare Gold. She must without doubt has been very "outstanding" in the show ring. The same with Ch. Herds The Helmsman. Fantastic and beautiful types that probably would do well in the ring also today. We said good-bye to Burton Farm and promised ourselves that it would not be long before the next time we take a dive into the Sheltie archive.
