I find it curious where the 1st blue merle champion originated - sire was a BM Collie.

Also that the first 3 champions made up after the second world war were a sable, a tri and a blue merle.  After that, the sables really seemed to be in the limelight.

So far (2000)  there have been  485 Sables, 121 Tricolours, 92 Blue Merles.  Total = 700

Interesting comparisons with the IKC results....I'd love to know if anyone has stats for other countries? (I know Robert Millar has booklets with US champions & current Australian collection)
