Polly the Dog
Polly is a 3 year old black Kelpie. Kelpies are highly intelligent dogs, very easily trained and bred to work sheep or cattle.
Polly’s antics feature regularly on our facebook page, and she loves having her photo taken. She also believes that people come here to visit her, not our cellar door, so you may be greeted by an enthusiastic, bubbly, smiling dog when you drive in to visit us if I haven’t managed to send her first to her kennel.
She is Neil’s constant companion whenever he is out and about on the farm bike, moving cattle or sheep, checking the dams, or fixing fences. When we are in the vineyard, the rabbits had better watch out as she does have an amazingly fast turn of speed if she flushes one out of the grass.
She has had her photo taken by the Wine Dogs Book team, and we are looking forward to seeing her in the next Australian Edition of this popular book by Craig McGill and Sue Elliot.
