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.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

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!

In riding a horse we borrow freedom

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 gonna 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.
