Nell

 Nell came to us in 2016 from Lisa Gast in Scotland. We absolutely adore this little female. Sweet, easy going, biddable but tough when she needs to be. These pictures were taken by Kim Russell in November of 2016, Nell working rams. Nell Pedigree & Health

 

 

J.D. Ann

Annie has proven herself to be able to handle any task on this ranch so far except catching lambs like Drift could.  Never would I have imagined a female dog could be this strong. She is all that Nell is and more. We are excited to see what this young dog will do, she will be three in July. Annie Pedigree & Health    

Annie 

Turner

This dog is my dog dreams come true. He comes to us from Joni Tietjen in Wyoming. He is Drift, Jake and Annie rolled in one but even better. He came to visit this spring to help with shearing. I begged for her to sell him and she wouldn't. So I was surprised when she messaged me to say he was available. He is a trained Cattle and Sheep dog. For those of you not familiar with this dog he was bred, raised, trained and trialed by Joni Tietjen. He is by her Ben, who is the only dog to win the National Nursery Finals two times. Turner won two of the 4 nursery runs at the 2019 Bluegrass Classic and was awarded the most promising young dog award, he finished 5 points behind his kennel mate Deets who won Reserve Nursery Champion for the combined 4  runs.  He finished in the top 15 at the USBCHA 2019 Nursery finals. He was qualified for the 2020 USBCHA Nursery finals until Covid took away his final nursery year. 

Eve

Eve came here late summer to have a litter of pups, and she is going to be staying. She is by Deets, who I adore and out of a female who is cattle bred. She is started and will have another 30 days put on her before we shear. She is calm, confident and has good cover on the sheep 

 

 

Jim

Jim comes to us from Texas, Goracke Border Collies. When I found out this cross had been done, I wanted one in the worst way. His sire is Dillon and his dam is Lynde. I have long admired Dillon, was supposed to buy him before I bought Annie. Lynde is a nice female who is out of Ben, who I have also admired for some time.  We wanted male and we wanted Black/White and CEA normal. Not sure how we lucked out being able to get one, but are very thankful to Steph for allowing us and Mike(her hubby) for delivering him within 70 miles of us.
