Hartleyjean Golden Retrievers
My name is Sally Richardson. My love for Golden Retrievers started 20 years ago with the most wonderful dog, Castlemans Classic Fin. He got me started competing in Working Tests and was extremely successful, gaining numerous awards. I then got the bug for Field Trials. Fin did really well, achieving open status, but it was when I got his nephew, Castlemans For Your Eyes Only (Archie), that I started to become quite successful. Archie won a novice trial at 18 months old, his first Open 2 day trial, he was 3rd. He got awards in open every year until his retirement around 7 years old. Fin lived to a good age of 15, Archie I lost at 13 years old.
My third Golden I had alongside Fin and Archie. Birdsgreen Baggins was pretty special. He won a novice trial at 17 months old, then his first 2 day AV open trial, he was 2nd. He also had numerous awards in open, but unfortunately never won. I lost him at 10 years old. My fourth Golden was Castlemans Mkussi (Rowan). He was a slow learner but once his education fell into place, he was fabulous. He won a novice trial at 18 months old, he won a 2 day AV open at 3 years old, then a week later a 2 day Breed Open which made him up to a Field Trial Champion. He was in the winning GB team at Ragley Hall game fair, and the winning team at the prestigious charity test at Windsor.
My fourth Golden is one of the most special and talented Goldens I've ever seen. Frizelwood Odan of Hartleyjean (Odie) He won a novice trial at 2 years old, the next season he won a Breed 2 day open, then shortly after a 1 day AV open to make him up to a Field Trial Champion, he had just turned 3 years old. He has continued to get awards in open since. He has also been on the winning team at the Windsor test. (Odies list of awards can be seen on Our Dogs page)
