Dally is sired by Rider and her Dam is Bosalita. She was born at Boyd Ranch in NM and is out of the last litter of Bosalita’s before her retirement. She’s a beautiful Red Merle with a split amber/blue eye.
Dally has a lot of natural cow sense and at just 10 weeks old she would hold the cows off me (with an older dog) while I put out salt and molasses tubs. She picked up on this in just a couple trips going out with me and a few older dogs in the side by side to put out feed. We moved to our Texas Ranch while Dally was still a pup and I started her here in the pens before moving cattle outside on the ranch. She has a good sense of group and is a natural driving dog, just like her daddy. She has no problems going to a head to turn or stop one and has been easy to work with.
Dally has always been very loyal to me and is never far from my side. She’s good with visitors if we tell her they are ok and is fine to take anywhere with us. But I know she would protect the ranch and us if she felt we were threatened. She’s a beautiful dog, with an outstanding disposition, and a fun personality!

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 a lot 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 .

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.
