About Herbert
Herbert was raised on a west Texas ranch that ran sheep, goats, and cattle. He has continued working with livestock throughout his life.  He and Alison now live in Granbury, Texas. Herbert got his first Border Collie when he was in college in the late 70's. "I mostly just had them for pet's. knocking  around with me a bit, not training much at all. After two dogs like that, I finally got two trained dogs. Traded a rope horse for them. Those were real good dogs, imported from scotland. I've never been without a trained dog since"
    In the early 90's he started looking to the border collie to add to the income from ranching. He has been in custom training, starting and selling young dogs, giving lessons and giving clinics ever since then. Herbert is also one of the most respected judges in the U.S.
