It is a shame that the show dogs drift away from the structure that has defined their working ability. Showbred Border collies have certain in many cases been bred so they are losing the flexibility in their spines and the super heavy coats would be a hindrance in a work setting.
With sheepdogs there are working breeders so I dont really concern myself with the show world and their strange ways of assessing dogs. Not sure it is going to change anytime soon. Even if they got the structure right there is still the question of assessing working traits and unless you work the dogs that would be a bit hit and miss.
To me the showring has little to do with the original purpose of breeds so I guess many will split into show or working bred. It would be a shame if breeders who are still trying to breed for both showring and work are penalised because of fashion that reduces function.
