Welcome to Eclipse Farms we are a small ranch dedicated to raising versatile Border Collies and farm fresh lamb.  We strive for dogs who will and are able to become an integral part of the family.

Our Philosphy

To raise border collies, who will become an integral part of the family, while still able to excel at any job: herding, agility, flyball or anything required. We look for intelligence, instinct, health and overall mental stability with in the dogs in our family. To raise Jacob sheep for lean meat, fleeces, mothering ability, fast growth and parasite resistance & fine wool.

Our Goals

• to raise border collies that maintain both intelligence and working ability

• to protect against inherited health problems

• to promote border collies to become an essential member of your family

• to help find homes for those border collies who find themselves with no place to go

• Above all: to make sure border collies are placed in loving, knowledgeable, and permanent homes

• to raise Sheep for lean meat, mothering ability, fast growth and parasite resistance.

 

2019 Lambing will be middle Feburary to early March.
