Hi and Welcome,

I'm new to the list, but already hearing from
great folks who love their collies - no matter
what the size!  My wonderful collie, Buddy is
also HUGE. Over 100 pounds, and at least 29".
He is tri-colored, has folded over ears, is
gentle and intelligent. I'm always getting
asked what he is crossed with.  I usually say,
pony!
