Ms Pauline Barnes and Mr. Colin Barnes ( MACOPA kennel)
Colin & myself have owned and exhibited Old English Sheepdogs for over 35 years. Our first Old English was Hollyhams Barney Barnes of Macopa who we bought as a family pet.
We attended our first show when Barney was 6 months old and from there on in we caught the exhibiting bug at and have not looked back.
We have had the thrill and honour of making up several UK Champions and also many Champions in Europe, America and Australia.
We have been fortunate to have been invited to judge Old English Sheepdogs at Championship Show level all over Europe and as far as Australia.
Our breeding programme has been very carefully selected from suitable stud stock which has been health checked for Hip Dysplasia, Eye Problems and PCD.
Throughout our time in O.E.S. we have met a huge number of lovely people, all due to our lovely breed. It is good to say that many old and new friends keep in touch and return to add to, or replace their O.E.S. after losing their special family companion.
We would like to thank the Officers and Committee of the Euro Dog Show for giving us this great honour of judging the Euro Show here in the fabulous Valtice Castle in the Czech Republic.
As we always say win or lose the dog you take home is always the best.
Pauline & Colin Barnes
