Handi was born here at Boyd Ranch and is out of Cheyenne X Rider. She is the first Rider pup we’ve kept and she reminds me a lot of him, with a great disposition and great work ethic too. She is out of Cheyenne’s last litter and is also just like her mom, who is easy to live with and very trainable.
Handi started working cattle with her dad Rider when she was around 7 months old. Her natural ability on stock never surprised us because it’s strong in her lineage. She’s been easy to work with and has made some big and long cattle drives in 2020 and has no quit in her. She has a good sense of group and is a strong driving dog but will go to the heads to stop one.
Handi is a beautiful dog with a big long trot that can cover some country. She loves to be pet and scratched on and told what a great dog she is…she’ll even talk back to you with her doggie grunts and silly noises. She sure is a fun dog to live with .

Rein was born here at Boyd Ranch, her sire is Cowpuncher and her dam is Bosalita. We did this cross for an all Black Tri/Bi litter to keep a pup from it and Rein was our pick! She’s a beautiful Black Tri, and is almost considered a Bi but has a tiny bit of tan on her cheeks and back leg making her a Tri.
She’s been a great babysitter to all the pups born here and loves playing with them. She uses her paws a lot and will swat at them when she plays.
We figured Rein would be a great cowdog because of her breeding and she has proved that to be true! She showed a lot of natural instinct as a pup and was exceptionally easy to train and later started working on the ranch to gather and move pairs and yearlings. She will go to the heads as needed and will also drive cattle well. She’s very good on pairs.
Rein has a fabulous personality. She has a calm mind and even disposition. She’s good with strangers but would protect us if needed.

Cinchy was born here at Boyd Ranch and is sired by Bubba and her dam is Bellboot. She has an excellent pedigree and is also an excellent Ranch dog!
She is great on stock and is very strong on the heads but will also drive cattle well. She has a good sense of group and loves to work! She had a full time job here gathering and driving cattle before she was a year old.
Cinchy has a fantastic disposition, is good with visitors, but is still a loyal dog to her family. I had Cinchy with me in the cattle pens, when she was just 3 months old. I was opening some gates and getting ready to work some of the older dogs on some calves in the pens. Cinchy ran into the pen and held up the calves on one end of the pen. I snapped a picture of her as I was walking in to pick her up, I think she was showing me she was big enough to work too! She had to wait a few months for that…

Nettles was born here at Boyd Ranch, her sire is Bronc and her dam is Stirrup. Nettles is a gorgeous Black Tri with brilliant blue eyes and an impressive pedigree! She is a 3/4 sister to Boyd Ranch Cowpuncher.
She is a great cow dog with a fantastic work ethic and will work all day. She will hit heads if needed and drives cattle well, is extremely fast and quick, and no cow could ever out run her! She can flatten down like a pancake and is good at avoiding a cows kick.
Nettles is a sweet girl. She is loyal to the family and gets along well within the dog pack. She is as athletic as they come and could have been an excellent agility dog but she’s been too busy here, using those moves working cattle….

Catty is a beautiful Red Merle who’s sire is Latigo and Dam is a Crown Point female Carmelita. She has one amber eye and one blue.
She’s very cowy and was put to the test on the ranch when she was 11 months old. I had instinct tested her with Rider in the arena a couple months sooner and I got busy moving cattle during the Spring and hadn’t worked her since. One day I was out of fresh trained dogs so I took her at 11 months old with 11 year old Chappy and gathered and moved cows a few miles. She figured out what we were doing within a few minutes and did a great job! She has continued helping us since then and is a hand on the ranch.
Catty is a sweet dog and loves to get hugs. She’ll put her muzzle under our chin to get attention and to get hugged. She even does this with the dog pack! She’s a funny girl.

Cowgirl arrived here when she was an adorable 3 month old pup from Twin Oaks in California. She has matured into a beautiful Aussie and we’re very happy to have her here.
We started her on cattle when she was about 6 months old and she had a lot of natural cow sense. She has continued to progress into a handy Ranch cowdog. Cowgirl has a lot of eye for an Aussie and is a quite worker. She thinks before reacting and excels at moving pairs.
Cowgirl has medium drive and is happy spending the day pushing cattle on the ranch or hanging with us fixing fence. She’s very easy to get along with.
I’ve always thought of Cowgirl as having an old soul. She sometimes looks at me as if she knows what I’m saying to her and as if she’s heard it all before…

Buckles is a pretty, blue eyed, small standard Aussie and is primarily Slash V bred. Her lines are well known for being great Cowdogs and she’s no exception!
Buckles is very quick and tenacious on cattle! She has a mind of her own with a lot of natural instinct. She’s a fantastic Ranch type Cowdog because she doesn’t need a lot of commands to get the job done and can think on her own. She’s shown a lot of “cow” since she was just a tiny pup and wanted to work them from day one. She has some incredible moves and is as agile as the come!
She is very loyal to her family and is protective of us and her ranch. She loves water more than any dog I’ve ever been around and will swim in the stock tanks even when it’s snowing outside. It’s almost impossible to get a picture of her when she’s not wet! She’s a great dog and friend.
