sheepdog champion 1899

Uncle William Jones
with Ci Glas

Being a hill farmer in North Wales on his farm just outside Corwen close to the Snowdonia National Park, he has been brought up with sheepdog trialling in his blood. Aled's uncle, William Jones, won the famous Llangollen sheepdog trial in 1899 with Ci Glas. It was fitting that Aled should win this same title exactly 100 years later with Roy.

Managing to run trial dogs and farm dogs is not something that all can do, but Aled has secured admiration for herding sheep both on the mountainside, and on the trial field - quite often in the company of much more scrutinising judges on the mountainside!
