Karrawarra Frank (Tackle) Karrawarra Sol x Paddys Pearl DOB 15/07/11 Black & Tan. An interesting young dog in the Karrawarra mould out of the great brood bitch Paddys Pearl.

He also has plenty of strength and will back & bark freely. He is a strong fearless cattle dog. Tackle is now the number one dog working on a property with 12,000 sheep and 1,000 cattle.
Tackle is a great casting dog have a look at this bit of him mustering in steep hill country.

Stockmans Clancy DOB 2002, black & tan (Karana Bindi X Avenpart Pepa) Clancy is my “go to” dog, the dog I use when I have a difficult job, if I could have only one dog to work my sheep and cattle I would pick Clancy. He also has a special place after saving me from a bull attack see the feature article page. He has been used as a sire by the Lemnos Kelpie stud.

Reference sires

Karana Bindi DOB 1998, black & tan (Capree Watch X UD Scarlett) died 20/03/07 Bindi was a great mustering dog with a huge cast, strong on cattle yet had good natural distance off his stock he would back and bark on command, a top sire of outstanding all round workers, used several times by Kirkaldy Kelpie Stud.

Karana Bindi


Nearo Sky 1996- 2007 Blue (Wundurra Wylie X Connley’s Jess) Sky had eye on a few and was a good mustering dog yet he was a tough fearless yard and shed dog, he was a descendant of Scanlons Fred and he reminded me a lot of that outstanding sire, like S Fred, Sky was one of only a few Kelpies who would back cattle. Sky was a top sire and has been used widely in several studs.

Outside Sires Used


Barru Monkey Paddys Shadow X Barru Dot
Monkey is a big upstanding dog chock full of old Karrawarra blood. He is a very natural backing, barking dog inside a true full on yard dog. He still has all the attributes of the Karrawarra dogs outside with a great cast and natural break. He is a very strong dog with steady walk up force when working a few outside but he likes to get in and mix it with any stock. He is a true all round dog on any stock, sheep or cattle.
