We received an exciting call in January, 2011 from a breeder/friend (Rising Sun Farm) offering to sell Rising Sun Adam Bomb “Bronc” to Boyd Ranch. We were motivated to purchase him because he had been started on cattle and sheep, and is out of a WTCH dam and is sired by the most titled Aussie in the world!
We weren’t looking for an older male at that time, but after receiving his photos and pedigree we were certain this was an offer we couldn’t pass up. Our hearts knew this was a great opportunity to add some new and outstanding bloodlines into our already successful breeding program, so we went for it!
We received “Bronc” in February 2011 (just after we unexpectedly lost our beloved male Spur). The difficulty for me personally (at first) is Bronc and Spur are so much alike in temperament and working ability that he was a constant reminder of our loss. Of course over time we realized what a blessing this had become and Bronc has settled in quickly and is working on the ranch like a true champ! It was an adjustment for him at first because he wasn’t used to working cattle in the wide open and moving them so far, he had only been in the arena. He caught on quickly, does hit heads and heels as needed, and reads cattle well. He stays very focused and on task while working.
He’s built working skills with the other dogs and has learned to love us all as his new family. He likes to sit with us on the porch after a long days work and we chuckle at him, he is such a silly dog. Excitingly he will wiggle all over and he loves to be pet and told what a great dog he is….we are truly blessed to have him.
