(Rook x K. Thompson’s Hattie)

Sadly, Ben was critically injured while working sheep on July 4, 2014. He is dearly missed and his loss has created a huge hole in my heart.
Ben had wonderful pace and a great way with his sheep, with the right amount of eye. He was a good out runner, had tons of heart and stamina and feared no sheep. In addition to his wonderful working style and ethic, he had the most superb temperament and character.
