I'm new to this - what is conformation showing, and what were they doing before that?
I'm going to get into the website right now and enjoy like a nice cup of tea!

    Subject: Website up
    
    
    I know you all weren't holding your breath, but
    wanted to apologize for the Collies: Back to the
    Future website being down so long. It is up again,
    though changes not entirely finished, at least
    many of the broken links are repaired or removed.
    
    It has been quiet on farmcollie, in part because
    many of us have gotten pulled away and into the
    middle of the ES/UKC mess. for those of you who
    might not know all about that already, here is a
    nutshell version: the UKC, after 60 years of
    registering the English Shepherd breed basically
    unmolested, just plopped the ES into conformation
    showing without notifying much less conferring
    with the ES Club which is the UKC National Breed
    Association. One would have thought affiliation
    meant something more but apparently UKC has
    changed its tune since the early 1990s when ESC
    voted to be affiliated. Well I could go on and on
    but better not, as any ESLIST members and ES Club
    members have heard all about it already or will in
    the newsletter.
    
    Just wanted to give the rest a hint as to muck and
    mire some of us have been struggling through for
    the last several weeks (and it isn't even spring
    yet).
