Hmm, pattern? Splash, tobiano, overo? **pic heavy**

Just wondering what you guys think. I'm thinking splash because of the belly spots and the high whites. Maybe they have tobiano too because of the white up over the neck...or is that overo?

ROFL Gotcha!! ;)

These are my 5.5 month old Border Collie pups :p




And lastly, my little buddy Amp:

I worked with each of them this afternoon, playing with the teaser rope and managed to get a few pictures so I thought I'd share.

Random playing pix.....

Catch in mid-jump

Leaping for it

Showing off that BC "creep"

Quick enough to make the catch

They learn quick how to cool off in hot weather

Quick change of direction

Got her eye on the rope

Not so patiently waiting

Made a good catch and wasn't about to let that rope get away

Leaping catch

The amazing skid-turn-snap-catch

Loves the water, but not so sure about John LOL

Every one of them creeps like they're supposed to :)

He has much more photogenic expression than the others do...and not as much gogogogogo energy

The skid-turn

Getting ready to make the catch

He's a really impressive "creeper"

And loves the water just like the rest

Amp, my buddy

You figure out how he contorted himself to make those catches (and he did catch)

He's got more svelt style than the rest of them, he's the best and most consistent "creeper"

Loves the water

And follows every step I take while doing chores with this look on his face. And if I stop and stand for a minute, he's right there standing on my toe LOL

Nice Dogs I love BC. Would recommend them to anyone wanting a good smart,loyal farm dog
As for markings I say Tobi with maybe some splash due to the bottom heavy blaze & belly white!!

Nice photos! Beautiful pups! And, they are great dogs. I prefer Kelpies, but if they didn't exist I would want a "paint", too. ;)

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Tobiano, with splash, especially in the water troughs!

Awwwww! I love Border Collies! Especially the working types. My neighbors used to have one that they'd let run around our neighborhood and she was the sweetest thing - very driven but oh so sweet.
I am so getting me one as soon as it's reasonable for me to have a dog. I cannot wait.

Also, Amp sitting on your foot is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen. He looks so pleased with himself!
