Stetson Karral's Lineage
I put this page up as a result of some very specific requests into Stetson's lineage. I hope it satisfies your curiosity.
Stetson was born on Thursday, October 15, 1998. There were 4 puppies in this litter, 2 boys and 2 girls who are all sable and white and healthy babies, and Stetson was the runt. He was bred by Ralph and Karen Elledge of Karral Shetland sheepdogs. Karral dogs were bred strictly for show and they typically keep the very best dogs and sell the others. Since Stetson did not make the "cut" he was sold to us.
The Mothers name is Karral Lucky Penny and she is called Lucky. Her Mothers name is Karral Penny royal and her Mothers name is Ch Karral Penny Ante. Penny Ante finished her championship with a really big win of a 5 pt. major in Charlotte N.C. Pennys father in named Ch. Sundial Midas Revelation, called Jay Jay and he is a very famous Sheltie. He has 9 All Breed Best In A Show wins and is a member of the 200 Club meaning he has won over 200 Best In Breeds. He was the top winning Sheltie in the country for 1996. Stetson's Fathers name is Ch. Karral Easy Money and is called Cash. He has been standing at stud in North Carolina for about 6 weeks and has recently been sold to Indianapolis, on approval. He is a very nice dog who finished his championship quite easily and is just now starting to sire some litters.
When looking at the pedigree you will see gray boxes on some dogs. That means Register of Merit and it is a title given to any male dog who has at least 10 champion children and any female dog who has at least 5 champion offspring. Some of the dogs in Stetson's pedigree are really quite famous. Ch. Karral Good Times is not only a ROM, he was also a Century Club member, which means he had at least 100 Best of Breed wins (he actually had 155). He also had 4 Best In Show wins, which is really an accomplishment. He does not show up on this particular pedigree as he is further back but he was the sire of Ch. Karral Happy Times who is the grand sire of Penny Ante'. Good Times was called Tuffy and he lived to be almost 15 and he was one of Karral's most famous Sheltie.
The reason the Elledges did not keep was primarily becuase his rear legs turn in slightly, and this will cost you in the show ring. I am quite happy that Stetson was not up to thier standards, becuase he is certainly up to mine.
