    thanks for the replies, youse have definatley given me a few options to look up.
    Ask a Border Collie to jump and it'd say, "how high?", ask a Kelpie and he'll ask, "why?"

    I'd say BC but the height says otherwise, there is also the possibility of there being a trace of a 3rd breed mixed in there

    yeh im starting to htink border collie, but spose, sometimes it's possible for a dog to be a bit of a frak and grow bigger than th breed standard.

    So she could be a huntaway cross

    Hybrids are very often larger than both parents. So size doesn't always matter.

    now you mention it about the hybrids, it does make a bit of sense

    My first thought was collie rough (Lassie dog) as well.

    I reckon BC...

    I can't see Huntaway at all...

    She is very kelpie looking though and very pretty (and they are not normally my cup of tea but I like her!!)

    Do they have Huntaways in Aus (just as an aside)?
