Border Collies

Our Border Collies are our workmates on our ranch. Bred to be working dogs, they constantly monitor our horses, letting us know of problems and helping us with movement of our stock. Purported to be the most intelligent breed of dog, we can attest to their intelligence, work ethics, loyalty and value to us as our companions. Our litters are sought after by ranchers as well as city dwellers.
