Well I got one to upload.
Oh my, judging by her demeanor & expression she's obviously not into photo shoots! Either that or thinking this new bloke's socks are stinky! ;-)
Seriously she's a lovely pup and looks like she'll have some sizes to her (I like some leg under them). Really like her breeding. Phenotypically her sire is similar to my last male (1998-2011).

That is interesting 76 that so far away you have a connection with Karmala.
I've never communicated with Jan but I'm well aware she and Tony had a close association...much like or more so his association with my mentor Jack Woolsey. Jack was the sole person in the USA he allowed to legally use the Karrawarra prefix in his subsequent breeding program here. Not surprisingly, a handful of unscrupulous breeders tried to cash in on the notoriety. :frowns:
Loved the pics you'd previously posted of Ned. Was he from Jan as well?
Geeze...apologies for turning this topic Kelpie centric!

Jed was by Capree Tear out of Ameroo Rose.

That is a nice photo of your fellow, looks like he has the looks and all the moves.

Nice talking about the Kelpies. I don't see much mention of them on CT, I assumed there was not many around over there. My interest is not in breeding them, I like them as a very loyal companion and are very dedicated to their job with stock. There is some books put out by our national broadcaster the ABC called "Working Dog Stories", all short stories about incredible dogs and all the most incredible stories were about Kelpies. Like about soldiers returning from war and his Kelpie went missing from the property and travelled miles to the railway siding to be there when he got off the train. Their perception is incredible.
