Well Brecon, the grown dog in the pics above has Welsh Sheepdog in him & is certainly as lively as out collie bitch. Morgan being full welsh will be chunkier, wider framed and bigger than a collie, floppy ears like Brecon and so I believe will happily work cattle as well as sheep. Will work with his tail up unlike a collie and will use his voice to show he's boss of whatever he is moving. Well that's the plan.

and at the end of day with our border collie bitch after a hard days puppying

Thank you for that, love the Brown/white ones like your pup. Most of my working dogs have been black/tan&white except a Border Collie. Still our Heading dog and Hunterway are   Will be keen to see how yours go, mine are cattle dogs so don't work sheep.
