Harvey was an outstanding pup and had the potential to make a good three sheep dog when he matured. I am reluctant to keep many sires here where they get little work, and sold him to an old client, Ron Robb, who already had three other dogs from me and worked big mobs on a station property near Nyngan.

I always had in mind to mate a bitch to him, and a couple of years ago sent Remy out after she was injured…thinking it would be a nice mating. Dave Motley works on the same property and was so impressed with Remy’s work that he suggested Ron mate her to his good young dog Motley’s Russell, whom I’d seen work very well at the National Kelpie Trial at Allora. Remy had two bitch pups to that mating. She whelped six pups to Harvey in Oct. ’15, 5 bitches, 1 dog. After I lost the very nice blue/tan bitch pup I kelp from that litter, Rev, I asked Ron to repeat the mating in 2017.

In June 2017 I drove out to collect Mocha, who had been mated to Changi, and caught up with Harvey again. He developed into a lovely dog with very fast cover and brilliant footwork. Ron recently turned down $10K for him. Dogs that can muster feral goats are making good money.
