    Hey! I post on Border Wars as “UrbanCollieChick.”

    I was just curious if you think this might be an Old Scotch Collie or something similar.

    He’s in an upcoming movie called Darling Companion.

    I would guess yes to that:)

    I’m posting on reply because I don’t think I have had a Farm Collie. I have had two BCs and a B.C. x Aus. S. and I just rescued a Queensland x B.C.
    My first dog was the B.C. x A.S., she was a beautiful full feathered tail merle. She was a one person dog and was friendly with strangers except when in my truck or behind a fence. She was born in 1970 before they really screwed up A.S.’s as far as I know.

    I guess my question is why there is so much confirmation talk on this site? I can see the performance or personality traits as important and the physical traits needed to accomplish the task but other than marketing a “cute” or physically typical dog I don’t understand the importance of confirmation. IOW that goes back to AKC standards of breeding a dog.
    I’ve been going through the links and I see an approach based on style.
    My B.C.’s were rescues of a smooth coat cattle dog and a rough coated sheep dog. Both might have been failures or just “overstock.”
    I confess I do like the look of all these dogs including your Farm dogs. They are a handful in some respects but I have gotten used to them. Even though I like certain kinds of mutts and bird dogs I’d take a herding dog every time.
    This is a very nice site.
