***ARAB HORSE NEWS***
It has been a dream of mine to breed high percentage Pinto Arab horses since I was a young girl. Finally this is coming to fruition.
With the purchase of a few mares over the past several years I am now in a position to start my breeding program. I have also purchased a beautiful 93% pinto stallion to complete the planning. Lordy is still on the mainland as he will be attending the Arab National show in March up in Sydney. Photos to come.
***MINIATURE HORSE NEWS***
All miniature horses have been rehomed. Some are in great show homes and have already done their new owners proud. Thanks to those special people who helped me with the tough choices, we know the truth,
"The Gambling" theme litter (featured below).
I hope you enjoy looking at my dogs, cats & other animals.
My girls only have litters occasionally. Lots of thought and planning goes into each and every litter I breed. All Australian Shepherds, dogs and bitches are x-rayed and scored for hip dysplasia, prior to having their first litters, and all pups are checked for Collie eye anomoly. My pups are raised in the house with their mums, socialised as much as possible and exposed to lots of the usual household noises.
I started back in 1986 with the purchase of a collie as a present for my friend, Len. Then next year I was interested in having something to do on weekends. Try dog showing he says!
As the first girl was not purchased as a showdog I went back to the breeder and was offered another girl, pick of her litter. My very first show was the Collie Club of NSW, National Show in 1997. My girl Krystle was 3rd in her class out of 27 pups. I was hooked.
With time and research I came to learn more about our beautiful breed and a particular bloodline always caught my eye, the Corydon line.
After moving to Tasmania I was lucky enough to become friends with Mim Bester of Baqilodge Collies and purchase from her Baqilodge Evening Star who was down from two Corydon imports. Some time later Mim let me know of a proven brood bitch that was for sale, down also from a Corydon import. Tyagong Goldstars Hope came to live with me in 1993, what wonderful additions these two girls were to make to my kennel.
With the addition of Australian Shepherds, life will never be dull. I had admired these dogs for many years before getting one myself. In 2001 I went to watch the Victorian Australian Shepherd specialty show. There in intermediate dog class was a lovely looking young blue merle male who really caught my eye, Ch Hats Creek Hitchn A Ride to Oz (Imp USA) aka Hiker. Some months later a puppy appeared in the showring here in Tasmania - sired by Hiker - I knew then that I had to find one for myself. I found there was a litter in Queensland sired by Hiker, Brenna bowled into my life in 2002 and the rest speaks for itself. These dogs are great companions, and are willing to take part in any activity you can think of! Mine love herding, and many excel in obedience, agility, tracking, search & rescue as well as flyball. Herding is great fun and it is great to see the dogs do what they were bred to do. I had a great opportunity to lease, with Kate Lorkin of Rozate Australian Shepherds a wonderful dog, Ch Windfalls Craftsman, he has now returned to USA, but puppies from him can be seen around Australia.
My thanks go to Kate Dourley (Rozate/Mazasuka Knls) and Karen Sherlock (Tillsun/Mazasuka) for trusting me with many of their dogs and being great mentors for me in starting off in this wonderful breed.
