Over forty years (40 yrs) of breeding the Kelpie. So many changes to the breed - very disappointing to see that the Australian Kelpie has lost type and becoming so short in leg, thick in body, lost the length from their loin - short stepping when moving, plaiting, weaving, cow hocks. Kelpies need to be able to stretch out and move freely - like a feather covering the ground. The key word in the standard is "lithe" in the Australian Kelpie Standard.
