Dogs

The working kelpies are an essential part of our farming life.  We currently have Emma, a black three year old Kelpie  bred by Larry Jones in Sweden (Nerunder Kelpies) she is the top dog on the farm.  She has an excellent outrun, and quite often one field of sheep is not enough; hence she is such a good dog to use when gathering on the slopes of Dartmoor.

The new dog in the pack is Johnny (main photo) he came in from Australia in the autumn of 2016 – that is what happens when a man goes shopping in Australia!  Johnny was bred by Colin Seis of the Capree Stud.

We have recently had a litter of puppies from Johnny and Emma, they have turned out very well.
