    Riana Gem 2nd

Leader, a cherry red and tan dog with an enormous capacity for work, what I call a go to dog when you are in a hurry. Leader will happily work sheep or cattle ,he displays medium eye when he needs to settle his stock, but is a free running dog and always in the right place. Natural heading or blocking dog but will drive as well, as he becomes more mature we are getting a very good stop on him. Leader is strong , athletic, great anticipation and with searching cast and with a good brain to work all day if required. His early pups look very promising and Leader has put his stamp on them with good big heads and terrific nature in all of them so far.

Toby ,an athletic good looking black and tan with medium eye but is very stylish on a few ,quite free on a mob whether it be sheep or cattle. Proving to be very aggressive with cows and calves when needed. Only a young dog but his early pups look very promising indeed. Toby displays excellent footwork on a few , has perfect conformation with nice dark eyes , he is still only young and can be a handful when fresh but will settle when he matures. Can be left to bring reasonable sized mobs home with minimal supervision. Good cast , goes to lead automatically and with good cover. Very well balanced dog with strength.

King ,a tall leggy Cream dog with enormous thinking power ,he does things with stock that canít be taught, particularly with cattle. King covers his mob well always on or near the lead knows when to apply pressure and how much and when to back off , he is a great leader at gateways and with a good sense of timing. King is not an over running dog and conserves his energy he is usually moving to the right position and holding position until he needs to move on .Experienced stockmen that have seen this type of dog will know what I mean. He has a natural stop ,good footwork ,big cast, balances well and travels his stock at their pace sensibly. We will join him to a few selected bitches soon.

Kirkcaldy Marco

    Orvale Ferg
  Kirkcaldy Trixie  
    Kirkcaldy Pippa

Marco is my main demonstration dog, totally reliable on sheep, cattle or goats. Medium eye, very strong will back sheep all day long and also cattle if necessary. Marco is black/tan, casts well in the paddock and handles his sheep and cattle in a very controlled sensible manner. Marco is by far the most efficient dog I have had in the last 26 years for yard work. Marco is a very willing backing dog in small yards, the race and in the shed. He can also be strategically positioned when working in the yard. Marcoís pups are early starters and many of them with natural bark. Marco excels when working cattle and will go over there back to get to a position to move his stock. He is line bred to Kalari Joker and Kalari Basil through the influence of Scanlons Butch and Rockybar Buff.

GLENDON BROWNIE Cudgee Jeff x Tinagroo Lady

A magnificent red/tan dog, purchased in 1980 from Queensland with the help and recommendation of the late Les Tarrant of the Rockybar kelpie Stud.
Big casting dog like his grand sire Rockybar Ripper, strong bark, would work large or small mobs, eye on a few, very compliant, top yard and shed dog, good on pigs. Along with Kirkcaldy Fleet he quickly became my main work and demonstration dog at field days and doing contract stock jobs.
Sadly, Brownie was stolen while we were exhibiting at AgQuip in 1981.

LISCANNOR DEANO Rockybar Buff x Liscannor Dell

Tough little black/tan, totally reliable for paddock and yard work, sheep and cattle, my main paddock dog for three years, quiet silent worker with medium eye, good cast and cover and a natural backing dog, the tougher it was the better he liked his work and totally loyal at all times. At 4 years of age he was sold for $1000 to Mr Ken Cockins where his workload was not as demanding.

Kirkcaldy Fleet
Rockybar Ripper x Glenville Tammy

Fleet was a most versatile black/tan dog that would work any species of livestock - sheep, cattle, pigs, goats in either paddock or yard. For demonstration he enjoyed working ducks, swans, and even a goose. He worked with medium eye, big cast, very athletic dog with a long loping stride good cover. He was an excellent yard and truck dog. He had a fantastic temperament and really relished his role as a demonstration dog.
