As in many breeds , the dogs that did the best , were the most composed , most collected - including her record breaking Romney .
Same with the border collies -- there was a trend to some really extreme border collies used for cross breeding development for a "sport-dog" - especially fly ball.
Speaking with Rose got me thinking about "locked-in prey" , a zone the dog enters in prey drive where they are virtually unreachable .
She had her own share of those . Sheep killers . Lacking the ability to block or inhibit. My sister rescued one , a sheep killer , from some farm - no relation to Rose's animals. The dog was slavishly obsessive on movement and brutal on ankles .
Here is a head's up . Every year Durham Region has an event called Farm-Gate where participating farmers open up their farms and host demonstrations, food sampling etc. The Jackson family , at the corner of my street, Country Lane and Columbus , has a farm which spans both sides of Columbus . They have on average 300 head of sheep give or take. Have the year they are right behind my back yard fence ! Every fall there is a real herding demonstration. Rose and one of her herding trained border collies , controlling a large flock.
Details of the event posted at the raw boutique HeronView , as they also participate in alpaca herd and award winning fleece displays.
One time I was in the Reid barn while a border collie training session was going on . Not your herding instinct test that's for sure . Much more demanding -- control and direction.

by the way Rose used to bring her JRT's to the Sportsmen's Show and share the stage with our GSD and Malinois group of French Ring club members and demonstrators.

you should get to know the neighbourhood -- there is a lot of local talent ---

Starting to see that, i went to school with the Daryl Jackson, I did visit Heronsview today, i picked up tripe cubes and rabbits feet...Tyson went nuts for them! unfortunately switiching the dogs to an all raw diet is not finacially possible for me. I wish it was though, i like the idea of feeding all natural. She has gorgeous dogs! When i go back to pick up more tripe i will look on the board, its a neat little store that is forsure.

misslesleedavis1 I was not aware she did herding, when dex was about 7 months old I took him to a lady named wendy, he mostly was interested in eating sheep poop lol he does not show a strong herd instinct, not like my moms bc. I have lived in brooklin for 27 years, I know of the Reids but I am better with faces, I worked at petro all summer chances are I have seen you (carmspack) tons lol .

jocoyn Most of the owners of GSDs any color NOT black and tan saddle or black and red saddle are used to "what is he mixed with" "No, he's not pure" "No that is NOT a purebred Shepard, a purebred is about 120lbs and is black and tan"

I do argue against the wolf comments just because I don't want anyone to think a wolf mix is proper, but other than that, I politely answer properly and if they want to argue, who cares?

carmspack since you are local - go up to Rose Reid's and see if you can do a herding clinic with him.
She told me there are two types , one a heavier more muscular dog , the old Scottish type , and another that is leaner , taller , more narrowed head used in different terrain , probably with some sight hound somewhere in the background.
She has been breeding and using them from way back to the 70's --
