    We are now up to 3 - not sure how many more - all black and white.

    Yes I do sell them, but I don't "raise them for sale".

    I love border collies. They're so smart and good with kids!

    Grand total of 5 - 2 males and 3 females. Females are black and white and the males are red and white. Doesn't seem to be a runt in the lot. All are healthy.

    That's terrific! I bet they are so cute! I just love Border Collies. We have three Black and White and one tri-color. None of them are full-blooded BCs, but they're smart as whips and we love them very much.

    I would love to see photos of your new babies!

    Best and easiest way is to store them in a free storage site and give out the url to your album (make sure it's open to public for viewing).

    Here's a list of free photo storage sites.

    Thanks Craftydiva - I'll do that.

    CORRECTION on puppies - 4 females, 1 male.

    I sure hope that I do as well when my California Red Sheep have their lambs. When building a herd it always nice to get mostly ewes - seldom happens - but nice.

    We have 2 Border collies, both full blooded. Male/ & female both fixed. Our male prefers outdoors but our female was raised a housedog, but she gets lots of time outdoors with us working, playing, more playing. Then she's ready to come back in and relax...and then play with the inside toys...LOL :)

    Work them on the sheep and the neighbors barbado sheep, but they never get all of the work they would like to do. My female would work the sheep 24/7 literally.

    We have a border collie "housedog" . He's wonderful, but they do need training. When we move the sheep he is worth his weight in gold. His obsessive/compulsive habit is to hunt invisible mice in the snow. :D
