The stud is situated about 40 km south of Toowoomba near the historic village of Nobby, famous for Rudd’s Pub; here Australian writer Arthur Hoey Davis, better known as ‘Steele Rudd’, wrote some of his well known Dad and Dave stories. The old house where he lived is just down the road from Karmala.
Established at Lake Bolac in the Victorian Western District, the move to the Downs was made in 2001 when Jan ‘retired’ from farming. This move necessitated an adjustment in breeding emphasis to suit the Queensland market’s demand for dogs that can work cattle as well as sheep.
Foundation dogs were chosen from lines of clever mustering dogs and sires are generally chosen from dogs performing well in testing conditions. This is very important, as there is insufficient work on a small property to fully assess dogs.

Well, as you can see the expected puppy explosion is well under way! The first two litters born (Wiggle and Fizz) had four girls and one boy and I got a bit excited thinking the tide had turned…..then Tash ruined it by having two girls and five boys! Bim also has seven but was a good girl, only two boys there including a big dark cream and a superb big black/tan. I must add that I’m definitely not sexist but many of my clients prefer females!
