WE ARE MOVING!!
Website update next year, we are going to be moving to regional BALLARAT next year, look out for pictures of our new property, with more acres and more animals I am sure!
Currently we are located West of Melbourne between Werribee and Geelong, right at the foothills of the famous You Yangs Regional Park.
We are a small mixed farm with a studbook registry for Kyilla stockhorses producing a small number of performance horses.
The property originally was dominated by working dogs, that were part of Tony’s place of employment and my Great Dane crosses made up the property guardians. As these loyal and hard working dogs retired we sat down to decide our next generation of dogs we wanted.
We wanted a dog that had to be good with stock and other house pets such as our farm cats, that would prefer to look rather than chase, a dog that would alert us to strangers adding some level of protection to our farm that was quite spread out in its layout. A dog that didn’t need a lot of grooming and care as I had too many horses to tend to require nearly all my spare time. A dog that could handle long hot days of summer and the cold extreme of winter (thankfully no snow here however it is often a few degrees hotter here than in Melbourne and Geelong). And a dog that wanted to be around us.
This brought the Anatolian Shepherds to the list and given I had encountered the breed many years before, whilst working at a veterinary clinic, I remember I was very impressed by these dogs
So we began our search and journey for our next dog.
Today we have 3 dogs, our first dog is Choban a Pinto male, our second dog is Yatsi and Snip, the son of these two dogs.
Both Yatsi and Snip are fawns with black masks, Choban is tri coloured called Pinto.
Although we are not well versed in the bloodlines and associated history of the dogs, as some other breeders, we aim to breed a small number of dogs because we love the temperament and confirmation of our dogs and their great fit into farm life.
