ROGER STEVENS


Farming and cattle have been a part of Roger's life since he was born.  He and his father were partners until 1969, when Pincie Creek Farms was established.  With a row crop and peanut farm, registered Polled Hereford brood stock and show cattle, plus 500 head of commercial mama cows and calves to look after, Roger badly needed some help.  In 1972 he acquired his very first Aussie, Syd.  Syd was followed a couple of years later by his two brothers, McKay and Mischief.  These were the beginning of Pincie Creek Aussies and descendants of their bloodline are still found in the kennel. Following a very serious car accident in 1986, Roger was forced to give up all farming operations for about two years while he recuperated. During this time he lost his buddy Syd to old age, and thus began the search for working Australian Shepherds.  Through diligent search, trial and error, and a stringent breeding program, Roger and his wife, Kathy, have what they feel are some of the best working dogs in the country.  They emphasize the ability to work cattle, because that is what is in demand most in their part of the country.  However, most of the dogs also work small stock.

In 1992 Roger acquired a little blue pup from Gary Ericsson named Hangin' Tree Blue Bear.  He was a wonderful chore dog and companion, the smartest dog they'd ever owned, and just for fun Roger entered him in the ASCA stockdog trial in Gainesville, Ga. in October of 1992.  Much to Roger's surprise, they earned a qualifying score and Roger was hooked.  Since that time he has competed regularly in ASCA events and one or more of their dogs have qualified for the National Stockdog Finals every year since Bear became eligible in 1994.  In 1999, Roger became an AHBA and ASCA stockdog judge. Roger and Kathy visited Tee Creek for the first time in May, 2012, and the 3-day clinic was an unqualified success.

My Herding Experience

I have been working with Australian Kelpies since 1985 and Australian Shepherds since 1999. I have competed in Australian Shepherd Club of America, Working Kelpie Inc., American Kennel Club, American Herding Breed Assn. Canadian Kennel Club and Border Collie trials. I am an American Kennel Club Herding Judge, American Herding Breed Assn. Judge, Australian Shepherd Club of America Stockdog, Obedience and Tracking judge. I have competed in Herding (WTCH, HX, HC), Tracking (TDX), Obedience (UDX), Agility, Flyball (FDX), Frisbee and just have fun with my dogs.
My husband and I work our dogs on our 600 cow dairy farm doing ( 300 organic) a variety of chores: bringing cows in for milking, holding gates, sorting, and letting us know when livestock are trying to escape. We have also increased our working stock to 13 Cheviot and x breed sheep and a few ducks. My dogs are all fed BARF raw. I have been feeding Barf since 1994
My background on the farm and trialing has increased my awareness of the importance of having a well-trained dog. The more advanced the dog's training, the better you do in trials and the more work you can do on the farm. Each day I am learning to improve my technique and my dogs.
