Willosyam Border Collies
Mrs. G. Gorley and Miss. J. Gorley
WORKINGTON – CUMBRIA
We are a mother and daughter partnership and jointly own the kennel name Willosyam taken from the name of our now departed blue merle working sheep dog Willow and the Cumbrian word for home Yam. We live on the west coast of Cumbria on the edge of the beautiful Lake District in the UK and have had working sheep dogs and then Border Collies in our lives for over 15 years.
We bred only occasionally and our aim is to produce Border Collies that have excellent temperaments and meet the breed standard with health as a priority. We choose not to breed on from carriers of the known inherited diseases and will always support efforts to investigate any of the health issues that may be found to affect the breed, having experienced some of these ourselves.
