to me it's more of what the horse think's of the dog, not the dog that makes a good ranch dog.... blue and shadow are great farm dog's that i have but i can't trust my mare abby to be any where near a dog.....we don't know why but she will try to kill them. there has to be a bond between horse and ridder and dog

I strongly recommend Great Pyrenees. They naturally make phenomenal guard dogs for livestock.
