Wylie will have his hips and elbows x-rays this winter and also his eyes tested. When completing all with good outcome he will be standing stud to a select number of females.
Wylie’s dad Bear carries a lot of Woods from Reddy Teddy and a lot of the old J Bar D blood. Very assertive on stock, really wants to please, easy to live with. Wylie’s mom Rhodie also carries the Woods blood through Silverledge. Due to an injury, her stock work has delayed, but she will begin training in the Fall of 2016. She is high drive and intense, but has a great sense of humour.
I went to Canada end of August 2017 to pick Wylie up. I was also ably to meet his dam, his two brothers and a sister. We took all of them sheepherding. Wylie is a social butterfly, he loves all and everything. He is very open, very social and very stable guy. His nick name is Wylie smiley. That says enough.
Wylie has been started on stock, sheep and cattle. He is a bit wilder on sheep then on cattle, but slows down fast, is learning how to read the sheep well. With cattle he was quite calm from the beginning. Started in a drive right away from the start. He did started barking, probably because he needed some more confidence. He started to heel, no more barking there, just at the heads.
We also train tricks and have started basics for agility. But all very slow and easy to make sure he gets the time to grow and mature. He is still a big baby in his head.
