Shetlander Posted October 30, 2008 Report Share Posted October 30, 2008 A friend mentioned to me that her obedience instructor was considering getting a Border Collie or Aussie, but worried that "Border Collies are not afraid of horses which can be very dangerous whereas Aussies don't have issues with wanting to challenge/herd a horse." I don't know Aussies but I never thought of chasing horses as limited to only one or two breeds. Anyway, I said I knew a number of people on these boards lived with both horses and Border Collies and would check to see what your thoughts were on the matter. It seems to me that I've read posts from people who have successfully taught their Border Collies not to bother horses or other livestock.
