In January 2010, we attended a 38,000 mixed sheep and lamb sale at Forbes, New South Wales with Kevin Howell and his seven dogs. They worked from dawn to dusk alongside other stockmen and their dogs in 90 degree heat. My survey during the day indicated that there were 80 plus dogs working the stock yards and only one was not a Kelpie!
This is a versatile breed and our lines reflect multiple use backgrounds. Our intention is to educate the North American public about this breed and we hope these articles and links are helpful to both new and experienced Kelpie owners.
