Go straight to Pups for Sale

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.


All the Karmala sires I am using have tested clear for CA. Top row, Brock, Landy, Wills. 

There’s a lengthy CA discussion in the May post.

3 sires 3 more sires

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.

APRIL, 2021




Good rain at last and back on the mower and slasher! There’s now a very good depth of moisture and farmers are getting ready to sow winter crops. There are a few sunflower crops nearby that are filling very well. So lucky to have the option of two crops up here…..

(Added later) April 15 today and it’s twenty years since I moved up here from Victoria. How time flies! It’s a beautiful day so I decided to enjoy it and play with these little rippers!
