About Tara

After years of looking we finally found our special girl as the founding female for Eclipse Border Collies. Tara is worked in herding, agility, rally obedience, and obedience. She is out of Rising Sun Shey Ireland ABC193629 and Blazin' Kane ABC182897. We want to thank Becky Beckmann and Steve Burdine of Rising Sun Farm for our special girl. 2010: As a result of an injury in 2008, Tara is retired from Agility. We still may put her in Obedience, but we shall see. She will still trial in AHBA stockdog trials, but we will keep a close eye on her. Tara is our foundation female, retired from everything, but stockdog work and is working on her HTCH points in AHBA.
