Breeder/Owner: Marilyn Horn

WCA Hall of Fame 2005

Annie did almost everything a field dog could do: as witnessed by her titles and her record as a producer of Five Field Champions and two Amateur Field Champions, which is slightly higher than her dams producing record. The record doesn't stop with her immediate get but is still continuing in the succeeding generations. Her grandson, "Jesse" NFC, NAFC, FC,AFC High Ridge Jesse v Horn has been the top ranked field dog in the breed for more years than any other dog and totaled more points yearly than most competitive field champions do in their lifetimes. Another grandson, "Ryder": NFC, FC,AFC, Westend's Lil Sage Rider, is not only a competitor but is rapidly moving up the top producers list.

In her own competitive career, Annie was remarkable for her consistency and longevity. The factor that won her so many ribbons was probably her stylish point, aided by her busy, thorough ground pattern. This was a dog dedicated to the pursuit and pointing of birds and if those who lived with her didn't provide opportunities to do this we knew about it. Her record at the Eastern Classic alone is hard to beat with ten total placements in seven years, including two wins and six placements in the Open Gun Dog Classic.
