Hello, my name is Tom Clochesy and I have just joine the Farmcollie
I have 3 rough collies and am interested in herding and have been
thinking about carting.
I am very interested in the "farm collies".
No, I don't live on a farm, but in the city! I do take my dogs to the
country every morning and they run and play and hunt. Oddly, one points
and one loves to catch field mice!
My youngest dog is now 16 weeks old. He is much more heavy and stocky
in his build than the other two.
I have spoken with my vet about the "farm collies" and he seemed very
I am a collie nut who thought I wanted to get into showing. Now, as I
watch the dogs do things that seem to come natural to them, I get more
excited seeing them just be dogs! The older two herd every dog that
they come in contact with. I am hoping to get information on the
MidWest Stockdog club.
My older two collies have great movement! They can be very quick and
turn on a dime! The youngest doesn't seem to be real coordinated yet!
I am also very interested in the farm collie history and the history of
the Rough collie and what they used to be and do.
Thank you for letting me join your group!
