Went to a stockdog and conformation trial this past weekend and Hawkeye came home with some goods.

Two Reserve Winners dog awards, second and third places and his title in Open Ducks, and he also finished his Started Cattle title!


Here is Hawk with his breeder trialing on cattle



Hawk and his breeder trialing on Ducks
Trial one


Trial two




Lark also got to meet her mom for the first time since she was 8 weeks old and got to meet her dad for the first time ever! Here is a picture of the three of them
The dad is "WTCH VCH ASCA/Intl CH CarMel Knockn' Um Dead" and mom is "Touchstone Desert Savoir-Faire (3 Majors/12 points)"


I have more photos of other dogs from the trials if anyone wants me to post them

More more more! I'd love to see more pics. Did Lark and her momma recognize each other? I feel like that's a dumb question and they obviously would but I've always wondered how moms react to seeing their pups again.

Nope they had no idea who each other were, Lark was friendly towards her and all happy to see her but no more or less than any other dog she just met. Non of my dogs have ever showed a connection with parents that they hadn't seen since they were "toddlers" They might play with them and give them kisses but like I said no different than any other dog they just met and like.

I'll post the other photos sometime tonight.

Susie, my oldest bulldog, is indifferent towards most dogs, but when it's her kids/grandkids it's a different story. She gets very excited to see them. I guess it really all depends on the dog.

Great pictures Keechak, and congrats.

I was raised on different ranches including one that bred a piedmontese double muscled bulls, but those are the biggest bovines I have ever seen in my entire life! What are they? My mind has just been blown. Or maybe those are really small dogs and my perception of size is off?

Those are fabulous pictures by the way.

I've been sitting here looking at their traits figuring that out xD
She looks like a healthy balance of the two.

That dog is about 30 pounds. The steer is a yearling calf not more than 900 pounds, a Hereford.

Here is what I think
She's got her mothers
eyes
lips
tan point color
and bite

She's got her fathers
color pattern
head shape
ears
and base color

lol I didn't know Kelpies were supposed to have pick ears this was the only one I ever met
Haha I don't think the floppy ear trait is common in Kelpies, there is a person on here who has one, and then this picture you've posted is the 2nd floppy eared Kelpie I've seen, although when googling them in the past I've seent a lot that have one floppy and one pricked, but most I've seen havw pricked. Thumpers dad was a purebred and he had pricked, and all his siblings got all Kelpie looks too with pricked ears . I do think the floppy ears are cute though!
