He won his first 8 Challenge Certificates at consecutive shows.

Unfortunately he only sired 2 litters. It could be that he had caught canine herpes as he was not producing any live sperm. The first litter produced only whites apart from CORYDON FLASH FROST who had too much white on him to be a show specimen, but he did appear on the front of the Collie Rescue Calendar for 2001. The dam was CORYDON LA PHINICIA. The second litter was to CORYDON WILLA BEA who had just 3 puppies. But they were quite successful as CORYDON FROSTY KNIGHT won 2 Reserve CCs  and CORYDON BEE A MADAM AT DEMELEWIS is the dam of Ch DEMELEWIS DARK MOON DRIFTIN OVER CORYDON winner of 13 CCs  so far.

 Luckily this means that he is in all of our present day Collie’s pedigrees.
