sheep is the predominant stock....but cattle is not "rare" by any means...different regions in aus. are used for different stock sometimes, so we have lines that work cattle more and lines more experienced in sheep and sorting...including the "backing" ability...then we have some that play in both and again it is this versatility that i find attractive

Hmm this makes sense to me. ACD breeders have also told me their dogs are a lot stockier than BCs for example because it's easier to avoid kicks and duck. Plus they're more built and solid than BCs because they tell me that in case a kick does land (god forbid), these smaller stockier dogs take it a lot better than a thinner, taller dog with less bone and muscle.

That looks like an Aussie getting run over.

It is Avalon Malt, out of Coolibah Mindii and Borahview Gunnah he was 11months old at the time and it was his first time on unbroke sheep...and tucking in is a skill for safety, I am happy he can fold in a tuck his head tight while hitting the ground....getting run over is not good at all

that picture to me is more of a prep for bite stance, low and for the ankle...and yes if the cow was to kick then he would be in a better position to hit the ground
