Hi,

 

I started a series of history related posts on my Stockdog Savvy blog that may be of interest to some of the history buffs on the boards. My latest post is about Sheepdogs in the Ohio Valley:

Fascinating bit about NM dogs.  As your neighbor to the south, I wonder what happened to them?

Their decline probably began with the Secularization of the Missions and continued as Anglo-American began to dominate the industry.
