Summerwind Australian Shepherds
The past - It started with our two daughters and their love of horses. We are blessed to live on 35 acres and have the best of rural living The girls began showing horses at a young age which for Bill and I evolved into breeding horses. The girls went off to college, after which one opted for the city life of San Francisco , the other is a Veterinarian with her own Equine referral practice in AZ.
The present - Bill and I still live on the farm, raise some hay, breed a few horses. Aussies came into the fold with "Penny" 13 yrs ago- our first Aussie of strong Twin Oak herding lines. Then came "Dolly" with conformation lines in her pedigree. As these girls got older our quest to add a puppy to the mix brought us "Treyse" - our first "show prospect". She is now AKC Champion Dreamstreets Three Wishes. Others have followed
The Australian Shepherd is an amazing breed. Their intense devotion, beauty, intelligence and bright spirits is second to none. We are now breeding our Aussies and strive for puppies of breed type, sound temperaments & structure with the ability to compete in an array of venues... conformation, obedience, agility,or various other sports. But above all, they need be happy, fun, healthy, new family members. Puppies are raised in our home and transitioned to the outside weather permitting. Individual attention and socialization is a continual and ongoing process.
We continue to look forward to new adventures with our Aussies and our horses and enjoying the friends met along the way...an amazing journey it is.
