On a Brighter Note...I Found a Border Collie Stud...

...right close to home, and when the gentleman gets back from moving steers today we are taking our dog over to his place for a few days of romance. His Border Collie is a super nice dog and even got to see some of the pups he throws...can't wait to see my dogs pups in a few months. Last time we had BC pups for sale, we sold them all in one day. If my dog is like her mother (and she is the splittin' image) she will probably have over 6 pups...her mom had 12. Gonna have some darn fine Border Collies around here to make all the local ranchers happy...already have had a few ranchers waiting for pups for 3 months. If my calculations are correct, the pups should all be traditionally marked tri-colors, as this is the same combo of male and female markings I have bred before. The only real mystery will be the ears...my dog has one up, one down and the male is half and half too. But it looks like a lock that we won't be getting any red pups...thank goodness...my predominantly white dog is enough to explain to the hadcore BC folks. (The theory is that a mostly white dog will not demand enough respect from the sheep to keep them in fear and thus easy to move, and red BCs were always a LAST RESORT...back in the old days in the UK, even if you won the trials with a red dog you didn't brag or hold your head up too high...and no one would use one for breeding on purpose.) But my dog has plenty of big black spots on her back and face and rear, and my last mostly white BC threw all traditional Black with white collar and feet and tail tip pups....this combo should also.

Lynch, keep me posted on the pups. Loved it when I was breeding Boxers and a few went into the show ring too. Know your hands will be busy for about the next three months! Good luck :-)

Our 1st batch of Border Collie pups was absolutely fantastic...sold em all in one day and had folks calling from over 200 miles away to see when we would have more. We supplement the mothers feedings with bottle feedings and end up with 8 week old pups that look 12 weeks...and are super healthy...My wife is already cleaning the bottles....she can't wait...I'll see if I can find a photo of the last ones to post.
