WE SOLD KARANA ROY IV AS A PUP AGED 8 WEEKS TO VIRGINIA CHILCOTT OF TASMANIA & VIRGINIA TRAINED & WORKED ROY FOR THE NEXT 2 1/2 YEARS DOING A GREAT JOB OF HIS TRAINING AS WELL AS DEVELOPING ROYS BEAUTIFUL FRIENDLY NATURE. VIRGINIA THEN DECIDED TO PUT ROY ON THE MARKET & MADE HIM AVAILABLE FOR US TO PURCHASE ROY BACK.
I HAVE HAD MY EYE ON ROY FOR QUITE A WHILE NOW, I FIRST SAW HIM WHEN HE WAS 12 MONTHS OLD & REALLY LIKED WHAT I SAW, THE NEXT TIME I SAW ROY WAS WHEN HE WAS 2 YEARS OLD & MY OPINION WAS STILL THE SAME I BELIEVED HE HAD A TON OF NATURAL ABILITY WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT WHEN YOU ARE CONSIDERING BREEDING FROM A DOG. WHEN HE CAME ON THE MARKET WE MADE EVERY EFFORT TO BUY HIM BACK WHICH WE DID. HE WILL BE USED EXTENSIVELY IN OUR STUD AS A SIRE. BECAUSE HE HAS THE OUTCROSS OF KARRAWARRA IN HIS BLOOD WE INTEND TO USE HIM OVER QUITE A FEW OF OUR ABBA DAUGHTERS WHICH WILL GIVE US A CONCENTRATION OF THE ABBA BLOOD BUT WITH ENOUGH KARRAWARRA BLOOD IN THERE TO BREAK UP THE CONCENTRATION OF ABBA BLOOD TO A DESIRABLE LEVEL IN THE PUPS WHICH I EXPECT TO WORK VERY WELL.
Roy is a son of Karrawarra Penny who is an outstanding bitch & Roy being by Karana Abba II he has the ability of both his Sire & Dam.
Karrawarra Penny is by our great dog Karana Digger II who is the only dog ever to win the National Kelpie Utility Championship 3 times.
Roy is a very big framed dog with a big sire type head & a beautiful friendly nature.
He has a very wide deep cast with a natural cautious pick up. After only having Roy for 2 months Roy Won the Novice 3 sheep trial at Wentworth & placed 5th in the Open 3 sheep. Since then after having Roy for 2 1/2 months we competed in the Open Yard Dog Trial at Forbes & Won the Open Yard with Roy scoring 90+90.We still have a lot of things that we both need to get used to with one another to achieve great results but with all of his natural ability I am sure it will happen.We need some fine tuning for trialing.He is now an Open Yard Dog & now an Improver 3 sheep dog.
