By the first link or so, I thought they resembled Aussies more than Border Collies.

This may be a bit of a stupid question, but how are they different than Border collies?

It always fascinating to me to see the different herding dogs that look similar, but to see how they really are different.

And maybe this should be a different thread, but...

Border Collies - crouching, use eyes a lot, gathering dog, more on the serious side temperament wise, not huge barkers.

Koolies - seem to be much more upright workers, a lot of eye not common for the breed (?), works by standing on -backing- the sheep (?), more on the 'happy-go-lucky' side temperament wise, likes to talk.

Aussies - more of an 'all round farm' type help, more of goofy/happy/silly side temperament wise, not sure of the upright vs. crouch style since the few I have seen have been both, not much eye.

Maybe this should just be a new thread, LOL. Would be interesting, everyone answer the same questions for the breed they're in to.
