I have a Yellow Lab and a Blue Heeler. Both have turned out to be excellent cattle dogs.

However I wouldn't take either on a ride. They're both good around horses and don't chase them. They are just stupid together. If one goes after something the other will follow.

They're better left here at the farm.

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
Thanks! Yes, he's a shorthair. He is so wonderful with our kids and you're right about them needing to be "properly entertained". He definitely is happier when he has a job which is bird hunting, of course. You're guy is really cute, too!

We have a mutt. My trainers over the years have had mutts, a boxer, a black lab, dobermans, pugs, jack russels, a corgi, and a mastiff

haha They're so adorable! My current trainer has one and she's still a puppy and she's the cutest thing!

Tons of horse people have Corgis. I don't get the attraction, but whatever floats their boat. :)

I love my Collie. I think I'm going to go with a smooth coat next time, though. Rough coats are a nightmare to groom. And the shedding is unbelievable.

Most of my dogs are mini aussies, and aussies of any size are popular horse-people dogs :) My others are an Alaskan Malamute and two Leonberger/Newfies.

I have a pommie, a black lab and a aussie shep.....also have a evil labradoodle (any one want her!!) but in the prossess of getting ride of her, cost us over $ 1,500.00 in damages in the last 6 months that we had her.
