She's at a sheep farm not too far from me, so I might just have to drive out there and take a personal look at her. If she works like they say she does, then I might reconsider.
And again, it's not that she's an "ugly" dog, she's very pretty, heavily blanketed, mostly black, her coat looks good in the pictures. She's not an overly large dog, looks to have good bone structure and her OFA is good. Her color is the only thing holding me back, but I guess that's just my years of personal understanding of the standrard and striving to only to produce acceptable dogs. I my mind when I hear "pale, washed out colors are a serious fault".. that includes silver dogs, because that's "pale"... but that's probably not the most accurate way of thinking?
