No one breeds for less fluff. It just happens.

Well i know no one breeds for strictly less fluff but I knew there had to be some with less fluff.

I would suggest checking local shelters.

Yes! These guys are perfect, they have quite a bit of fluff inside but not too much on the outside.

She has horses, and she lives near an (I'm assuming) busy street where she lost one dog to a hit and run. Getting a non-herder at least has less of a chance of motion reactivity, and less chance for history to repeat itself.

I know she said it was just for fun, but I think suggesting dogs better suited for her lifestyle would stick with her when she does decide to get a dog again

Yes. Cohen is one aussie on here with a less long, floofy, golden-y coat. I think there's another one...with a tail...I can't remember who. And if you check out Oracle Aussie's (Merlin and Journey's breeder's) page, you can see the difference between some of her fluffer dogs and a few "bred-by" dogs with smoother coats.

Thank you I looked at her page but not in depth. I will have to look more.

I don't have any suggestions, though.

I would definitely be concerned about having an ES near a busy road with no containment (don't know if you have a fence or not, just guessing you don't due to the bolded part of the above quote). Hudson is definitely motion sensitive and would, without a doubt, chase a car if given the opportunity.
