Stockmans Stud In May 2018 we travelled to the Manning Valley NSW to conduct a stockmanship and working dog school. This was very successful with all participants claiming they had learnt new tools to help them with their stock and working dogs.

Stockmans Minnie has been exported to AnneMarie Evers in France to join Stockmans Hisa. AnneMarie is very happy how she has settled in and believes she will win trials with her in Europe. Minnie is by Gogetta Chism out of Riana Liz (Annie) she is showing nice calm work and is strong enough for the heavy sheep in Europe.

Congratulations to James Fowler on getting the top price of $10,500 at the Jerilderie Auction with Ned a son of Stockmans Local who is a son of Stockmans Clancy.

Stockmans Clancy is retired but held in high regard and will live out his days in comfort at Glenburn.

In October 2014 Bill travelled to Israel to conduct a stockmanship and working dog clinic. This was very interesting Israel is a facinating country. There were several Border Collies some quite good from England and some Kelpies with either Wyreema or Gogetta breeding. One particularly good pup that has a double cross of Futura Ned.

Stockmans Kelpies
We have been breeding working dogs for 55 years and Kelpies since 1981.
Stockmans Working Kelpie Stud aims to breed Kelpies with strong natural ability to work stock that want to please their owners. They should have a natural cast and distance off their stock but have the strength to come in and force when required. Stockmans Kelpies are working sheep, cattle and goats in 6 states and have been exported to several countries.

Stockmans ASHS Horses
Stockmans Australian Stock Horse Stud aims to breed sensible versatile horses that are suitable for many different disciplines using only proven heritage Australian bloodlines ie: no Quarter horse blood!
