Bill riding Stockmans Magic with Meggie, Gidgee & Annie mustering some ewes early in the morning.
We have taken up the opportunity to purchase a top young dog Gogetta Chism from Peter Griffiths, Peter has had Chism from a pup and has started him very well, we look forward to his pups and hopefully exhibiting him on the trial ground in the future.
Chism won the Farmers 3 sheep trial at Benalla at 16 months.
Chism has been sold for $10,000 to work on a station in Western NSW, we have retained breeding rights to him as we are very happy with his first 3 litters.
Congratulations to James Fowler on getting the top price of $10,500 at the Jerilderie Auction with a son of Stockmans Local who is a son of Stockmans Clancy.
Stockmans Clancy & Riana Meggie are both retired but both are held in high regard and will live out their 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 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.
