Drift- 01/13/07   -- 12/09/19

I can not say enough good things about this boy, he is my right hand and more. There is nothing he will not do and there is no give up in him ever. He has saved my butt more times than I can count and I would be lost without him. I can not thank Vickie & Norm Close enough for selling us this awesome dog. Drift Pedigree  pictures taken in November 2016 by Kim Russell


Hanson Jake- 04/30/09 -- 01/27/20

 We purchased Jake from Norm & Vickie Close of Handhills Border Collies. He was unable to be a trial dog for Vickie as he is afraid of storms. Working here on the ranch we seldom work in storms so not an issue for us. What a dog he is, he can read sheep and knows how to handle them all. He is the only dog who works in the shearing shed every spring and is a great corral dog as well. We do not use him much out on the ranch as he does not care to ride the 4 wheelers and it is just easier to grab a dog who does not care. He gets along with everybody.  Jake Pedigree & Health


Imp Nell

Nell came to us in 2016 from Lisa Gast in Scotland. Sweet, easy going, biddable but tough when she needs to be. Nell Pedigree & Health  Nell has moved 30 miles away with a friend. She is her only chore dog and is happy working daily there


5H Meg

Meg is a homegrown pup by our Jake and Imp Dess. She is a silly dog like her mama and always makes me smile. She will pick up the weirdest things to carry on our walk, that she gets from Jake. She can make sheep move like both of her parents. I have not been using her much up until this fall and I am very happy with her. She is the only dog that I have not wanted to send away to be trained. While she will never be as well trained as the others I think she will work well for me. Meg seldom starts anything, is usually by my side, but if someone starts something she will jump in. Meg is now residing in Canada with her son Torin and person Louise     Meg Pedigree & Health

L & M Star

Star is a nice little female who enjoys working bigger flocks. She is eager to please and pretty fearless. She is loose eyed and has an excellent down and recall. She is OFA Excellent and OFA Normal Elbows and Shoulders. She is DNA Carrier for CEA and is DNA Normal for TNS, IGS and MDR1. She resides in Maryland now at Branchwater Border Collies.

5H Tank- 2001-2015

Tank was very easy going and got along with everybody and every dog. On sheep he had no trouble moving them, they felt his presence when he walked in a corral. He was ABCA papered & OFA Excellent hips.



We got Amelia in the spring of 2014 from Ray & Linda Evans in MO. She is cattle dog bred and fast as they come. She is a sweetheart one on one but a bit obsessed out with the other dogs. She is a good working dog and totally focused on her stock. Amelia has been sold to Wendy Frevert of Plum Ridge Training Centre. She will be used on goats and calves and I imagine a repeat of Amelia and Nap breeding will take place as well.
