Welcome to Craiglea
Welcome to Craiglea Working Dogs & Stock Horses. We are based near Drillham, on the Western Darling Downs in Queensland. We manage a corporate owned beef cattle operation, running 2,000 cattle across four seperate grazing properties. We run Wagyu and Angus breeder cattle, growing our progeny out to heavy feeder weight. We also trade cattle according to the season, and run a small flock of Dorper cross sheep.
We breed and train practical, versatile Border Collie working dogs and performance horses to suit a wide variety of disciplines. We both grew up on working cattle and sheep properties, so we understand and appreciate the requirements of a practical working dog and horse. We also enjoy competing our animals when we get the opportunity. Some of our major achievements include – winning the Australian Working Cattle Dog of the Year (twice), playing polocrosse at Zone, State and National level, and winning the Novice Dressage at ASH Nationals. Our horses have also won and placed in Campdrafts and Stockman’s Challenges. Our customers are also achieving great things with our dogs and horses in various disciplines. We find it extremely rewarding seeing other people get so much pleasure and enjoyment from animals we have carefully bred.
We expect practicality and versatility from our dogs and horses. When we are not using them for work, we are using them for pleasure as a family, either at home or at a competition. We love our dogs and horses, and we are passionate about breeding and training top quality animals!!
