Black & Tan Male    Born: 20th May 2003

Noonbarra Toby III is a full brother to Noonbarra Jackaroo and Noonbarra Nicky. He was the first pup in the litter to start working on stock and was a wonderful dog. We thought a great deal of him. We had him at the National field Days and he was able to work difficult sheep right around the yard course without help from another dog.



In 2003 we sold Toby to Warwick Morrison who was living in Bondi but also had a large wool and meat property up north, which is managed, running mobs of Merino sheep and Hereford cattle. Warwick is a friend of Jill and Geoff Steward who own Noonbarra Lucy III and Noonbarra Ding.



"Dear Mary & Stephen, Sorry for not contacting you sooner regarding the dog that we bought from you (Toby ). Last time we messaged you we told how he had was adjusting to the city particularly Bondi & that he was in a constant state of amazement."

"Well now we are up here at Bundarra, arriving December 03. He's had to learn shed, yard & paddock work. And, he's done it ! He's such a clever dog, he's gentle (he seems to be a friend of all animals or he thinks he is) he climbs up a ladder to look after the roosted chickens : he loves to play with our solitary horse, trying to lick his neck & our only adult chook lies with him in the sun ."

"We have mustered 300 acre paddocks & Toby never rests. Yesterday we scanned 2000 ewes in the yards ,Toby pushed them up, jumping up on their backs and all."

"So there you go. He's working like a trouper and always cleaver enough to learn new ways . Thanks ,now for the cattle! " -   From Warwick & Sally
