Around here beagles, jack russells and ACDs are popular with horse owners. We have a german shorthaired pointer and two poodle mixes. Our border collie mix passed away last month. I don't let the little dogs anywhere near the horses, but our GSP likes to go with me on rides.

Pretty pointer. Is he a German Shorthaired or an English pointer? I only ask bc his markings look so English - I didn't know the GSPs came with the large white swaths. Either way, he's beautiful. :) I love pointers - they make the best dogs, so long as you keep them properly entertained. :p

Here's mine, although he's a mix so his spots are brindled. Unfortunately, don't know how to make the pics smaller.

Vida, would you like to borrow my gray horse? He is amazing at breaking dogs from messing with horses. LOL He is quite the agressive little turd.

We do lots of cattle work so I have border collies and a couple of Lab/Collie crosses (purely by accident). A silly male lab showed up one day and bred one of our females. :(

Marley, a...well, his mom's a foxhound, his dad's a beagle, and he's got /sort of/ the build of a beagle...but he's 60lbs, black, and medium-long-haired! Which makes absolutely no sense, given his parentage, but what are you going to do. Apparently all of his siblings were perfectly normal little hounds. :P Maybe he's a...changeling, is it? As a side note, about a year after we got him, I saw that there was a book about a dog named Marley...turns out, my Marley wasn't the worst puppy in the world. ;) That made me feel better, he was a wretched pup.

I've also owned a Shepherd/collie mix and a boston terrier/basenji/corgi. Figures, they were both females...the only male dog I've owned is the irritating one. ;)

Around here you see a lot of corgis, aussie shepards, and jack russells at the hunter shows. I have a shepard/whippet cross and a pittbull/cattledog cross. I had a pug, but after 9 months of not being able to get him housebroken, I just sold him last week. I also had a Great Dane that I had trained as a certified therapy dog, but her hips went bad and she couldn't get in and out of the car or do steps anymore. She was retired to a nice life on a farm.

Jack Russels, Labs, Golden Retrievers, Border Collies. Those are the breeds of dogs at my barn.
