CRAIGLEA TEX (Deceased)

2016 NSW Cattle Dog Champion
2016 Australian Cattle Dog Reserve Champion

Tex was killed in an accident when he was only four years old and in the prime of his working life. Following Spud’s retirement, he was my number one work dog. He wasn’t a fancy dog in the trial ring, but he shone on tough cattle, and managed some big accolades in his limited starts. He won the 2016 NSW Cattle Dog championship, and was Reserve Australian Cattle Dog Champion the following weekend. Tex was a genuine stock shifter. He was made for cow calf work, and never made a sound.

I never got a chance to use Tex as a sire, although he did cover several outside bitches, producing some nice pups. Regrettably, I never collected semen from him either.

Tex is an Open cattle dog. His trial results include:

  • 2nd Open Cattle Dog, AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS, Red Range NSW 2016
  • NSW OPEN CHAMPION, Pinkett NSW 2016
