Our first GSPs were from old fashioned working lines. Bred by Judith and Trevor Horsefield under their Sasfrids affix, they were from the Mathams and Keldy working lines, owned by Jerry Kew and Alan Brookes. All our stock descend from the Dual Champion Mathams Dark Claret of Trolanda.
Our aim at Castlepoint has always been to maintain the duality of this wonderful breed and in our endeavours we have been careful when selecting future sires. Always selecting for sound construction, proven working capability and sound temperament.
For our first litter we chose Midlander Spring Quill, a well constructed dog, who was worked regularly in the field, had gained an Excellent at a Spring Pointing Test and during his short career in the ring had won many awards. Bred by the famous Midlander Kennel, he was by of Dual Champion Keldy White Knight and out of Midlander Mi Laro.
