Jasper is my herding star. His first look at sheep was at 14 months old, and this laid back dog took to herding like he was bred for it! In 3 months he has gained his PT title with ease and great comments from the judges, one saying how well he rates stock for a novice dog. Our trainer Robert, has also said Jasper is the best bench bred kelpie he has seen work sheep. So I am in for some exciting times with this young man.
After a 3 year break Jasper is back on sheep again and Wow he is still just as amazing ! He has gained his HSAs (Herding Started A course on sheep) and his HSBs (Herding Started B course on sheep) titles with excelent scores. Jasper is the the first Grand Champion Kelpie with these titles :)

Jasper's son Jeremy (Suthenskys Strikes At Sunset) is now doing his best to fill his dad's paws in the herding scene. Only 7 months old and he already has one pass for his HT title. He is still young and has lots to learn but it doing some nice work. He is also having fun learning some 'yard dog stuff', putting the sheep through races up and up ramps into the shearing shed and learning to back. He is such a sweetie and looking forward to the penny dropping a little more for this guy. (photos to come shortly)
Mary (Suthenskys Shameless Success HT) is also trying her hand at herding. She is a gentle dog, keeping nicely off the stock. As she is only young, I am not pushing her too much, so she is just being allowed to enjoy the stock and build her confidence.
