Belle x Coltan
CH Warbonnet Wynd Drinker x CH Alar's Chasing Paydirt

  Half the pups should have orange spots like Belle and the other half will have liver spots like Coltan.  Some of either color may be roan.

CH Warbonnet Wynd Drinker "Belle"
Hips: OFA Excellent BS-18274E24F-NOPI, Elbows: Normal BS-EL1733F24-NOPI.  DNA Profile #: V867217.  Whelped 10-2-16.  By: Am/Can DC Kinwashkly Dirty Ned Pepper "Ned" x GCH Warbonnet Summer Wynd Dancer "Dancer".  Ned is OFA: GOOD, CERF: NORMAL.  He has placed Three Times at Nationals!  Website - Pedigree - Field Trial Placements
From his owner Vern: Ned is "Happy and snappy, the ability to find birds and run like the wind, with the sweetest nature is Ned in a nut shell!  Ned is now one of the top ranked All Age Brittanys in the US, and in May 2013 became the first Canadian-owned American/Canadian Dual Champion Brittany in history!"
From Todd: I have been wanting to breed to Ned for a long time.  His record in the field and nice personality speak for themselves.  He is also the son of Meadow's (our Kinwashkly bitch) sister Val (also a Am/Can Dual Champion) so this brings our Wyndy lines and the Kinwashkly lines together in Belle.  Belle is a show Champion as of June, 2018.  She has field trial placements and a Derby FT win so, she is Dual Pointed.

CH Alar's Chasing Paydirt "Coltan"
Breeder/Owner: Jessica Carlson.  wh. 7/19/15.  OFA Good BS-18250G37M-VPI
From Alar Brittanys: "Coltan was a standout from the start, and we think we hit paydirt with this outstanding young liver roan boy! His call name comes from an ore, columbite-tantalite, or "coltan". Coltan is an impressive expression of the best from each of his parents. We have started him slowly but he has a field trial placement and finished his show title in just a handful of appearances. His last two wins were 5-point majors, one of which was Best of Breed over 6 champions! Coltan is an enthusiastic bird dog with impressive intensity and style on point, and he LOVES his birds! After spending a season working on learning his manners for future competition in adult stakes with trainer Ben Garcia, Coltan has returned to "team Tequila" for summer camp and fall trials. Watch for more from this very promising young dog in the future!"

Coltan is an awesome looking Brittany!
