Our Canine Clan
Sparky is a Mcnab collie: Black & white, medium smooth coated, pick of the litter. Out of our matriarch, full Mcnab female, Holly, and by Riley, Mcnab border collie - a master of cattle. As a working dog, Sparky has the heading traits we seek for in working cattle. He will fetch and hold the cattle, keeping them collected until he is called off. He has bite when needed and speed with stamina. His offspring are proving to be good all around ranch/ Farm stock dogs.

Roscoe is out of our own Zoe and by Hagens Ranch Rowley. Roscoe's has all old ranch McNab stock dog breeding through Ira Reeds lines and the Goldsmith line is heavy in Zoes lineage. Roscoe is my husbands go to working dog for his cattle operation. He has a biddable temperament , good balance and friendly disposition.Medium sized, slick hair coat and athletic as they come!
True Grit son of True Blue and Kona is a blend of all our best ranch dogs in one. He has enough sensitivity to want to please and plenty of grit to get after the cattle when needed. His offspring will make nice all around ranch and companion pets or working dogs.
True Blue would be better named True Bliss! No dog has ever given us more joy to watch play and entertain himself than True. He is a clown and the happiest dog I have ever known - until it comes to working with stock. Then we see a very serious side to him - he exemplifies the best of his border collie mother (Nellie) and his full McNab father (Cinch). True has an amazing black & white soft, wavy, medium length hair coat, sharp ears, and piercing blue eyes. This cross is magical. Beauty, brains, and all the makings to perform whatever task you ask of him.Retired from breeding and his son True Grit has taken over his fathers legacy.
Jasper has recessive traits that I decided to keep to add back in to our gene pool as she demonstrates some unusual characteristics ,such as; shorter hair coat with a red/tan saddle . She has a very keen nose and loves to hunt game. Best of all is her herding balance is perfect for working in a corral as well as in the field. And she is very loyal and loves to please.For our purposes she is perfect for long distance cattle gathering as she is untiring.
