Horses and Dogs...
 
I was looking around a dog breed website, and I picked out a few that I thought would work good with horses and on a ranch. What are your expirences with this, and are there any other breeds I should consider?

So far my top 4 are

I think Australian Cattle dog could be good for your meaning. Have u already consider other shepherd-breeds example Border collie or Australian shepherd?

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.
