FTCh Gortinreagh Faith

Faith is a very classy and athletic ESB from the “F” litter which is by IntFTCh Ballyellen Cody x Gortinreagh Clover.  Clover is a daughter of IntFTCh Lefanta Kira and both Clover and Faith are obvious relations of Kira – small, dark and enthusiastic!

Faith came back to me in the Autumn of 2015 at the age of 3 and on the Spring Campaign 2016 we were ready for competition.  She began with a win at the Pointer Club of Scotland’s Cawdor Novice, took fourth at Scottish Gundog League’s Novice at Lochindorb and concluded the week with another win at the Scottish Field Trial Association’s Novice at Dalmagarry.  I was very much looking forward to the Summer in 2014.

Faith ran under Richard MacNicol and Laurence McAllister at the North of Scotland’s Open Stake and secured her first Open win with excellent running – a find under provocation and some precise manners on the whistle.  She was unlucky in her first championship in 2016 with lovely running and good finds in the first round, but missed a tucked-in cheeper in the second round.
