Ch. Big Sky's Calyx O'Fernhill
(Am/Can Ch. Fernhill's Huntly d'Lux x Big Sky's Anica)

Calyx was co bred by Barb Heidenreich and myself. She is an incredible mover and extremely keen. She doesn't miss a thing, and is much too smart for her own good! Luckily, she is sweet as can be and is being a good "big sister" to the puppies. At her first show, Calyx took Best of Breed both days from the Bred by class. We also took her to her first ASFA meet, and she did an awesome certification run with a whippet. I can hardly wait to see how she'll run in the future (hopefully, she won't learn to cheat too quickly)! Calyx's sister in California (Fernhill's Cara) won Best Puppy in Specialty at the 2011 Western Regional Specialty in Lompoc. Her half sister, Lehigh-Darkwynd Flora, took Best of Winners at the SDCA National in Oregon in 2011 and her half brother, Lehigh Fortune at Champhurst, was #1 Deerhound in Sweden for 2011. Calyx finished her championship very quickly in just four show weekends from the Bred by Exhibitor class. We are very proud of her! 

Fernhill's Eclipse at Big Sky JC
(Foxcliffe Thistleglen Torrish x Ardtalamcu Nootka)

Eclipse is from our Australian import, Nootka. He came to Texas with his sister, Etta. Eclipse's sire, Torrish, was sired by one of my favorite boys, Fernhill's Lyric (Winners Dog at the 2007 SDCA National). His dam, Ch.Foxcliffe Thistleglen Bluegrass Cat, is a sister to GCh. Foxcliffe Hickory Wind, who was BIS at Westminster in 2011 and a two time Breed winner at the SDCA Nationals). Eclipse took 3rd in his futurity class at the 2012 SDCA Nationals and got his first JC leg at his first lure coursing meet. We look forward to more shows and coursing trials!

Big Sky's Aero from Tamashi JC

(Ch. Temujin's Easy Rider x Ch. Sa'sta Paisley of Temujin)
Aero was bred by Pamala Minor (Tamashi) and came to us in February of 2011. He is your typical goofy, but super sweet boy. His sire, Rider (Anakin) is from our A litter, and his dam, Paisley, was bred by Judith Kucszmarski (Temujin) and is owned by Carole King. Aero is a nicely built boy who shows lots of promise both in the ring and on the field. At just three days past his first birthday, we took him to his first lure coursing event, and he got his first JC leg with flying colors! Look for him soon in the conformation ring too!
