'Joanah' Is No. 1 English Setter for Two Straight Years
A showy, spotlight-stealing 4-year-old orange belton female named “Joanah” is the No. 1 English Setter for two straight years. MBIS/MBISS GCHG Wingfield ‘N Chebaco Here And Now grabbed attention when she won the Michigamme English Setter Club Specialty at 2 years old, besting her sire. Pro Eileen Hackett of Pendleton, Indiana, handled the sire, while junior handler Abigail van Meter, who works for Hackett, handled Joanah to the win. “Joanah thrives on being spoiled and has a great sense of humor,” Hackett says. The fun-loving setter captured Best of Winners from the 6- to 9-Month class at the English Setter Association of American (ESAA) National Specialty in 2016 and then won Best of Breed in 2018 and 2019. Bred and owned by Don and Pat Coller of Madison, Georgia, and Hackett, the handler, Joanah was sired by MBIS/MBISS GCHG Wingfield ‘N Chebaco Just So You Know, the No. 1 English Setter in 2018, out of CH Wingfield ‘N Chebaco Keeping Up Appearances. Her great-grandsire on both sides of the pedigree is MBIS/ MBISS CH Chebaco Blames It On Trabeiz, one of Wingfield ‘N Chebaco’s top-winning males, and her maternal grandsire, GCHP Stargaz’R ‘N Wingfield Time Will Tell, is a four-time winner of the ESAA National. Joanah is fed Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula dog food.
