Our Colorado Mountain Dogs

In Memory -- Caspian --The grand daddy of all Colorado Mountain Dogs, and the foundation stud of the breed,. Caspian was my personal dog, who guarded my farm. He was my luck dragon, the dog of a lifetime. Here he is with foundation girl, Snow, and the very first Colorado Mountain Dog litter.

The Boys

Bontemp Acres Aslan of Crack O' Noon, G3, ARBA/CMDR, May 11, 2018

BTA Aslan is a spctacular Caspian line cross grandson. 32 inches at the shoulder, great with our livestock. His mom, Dolly, is Arya's full sister. He is beautiful, sweet tempered, and the epitome of a Colorado Mountain Dog.

Crack O' Noon Bruinen G2 male, Snowfall x Broham, March 23, 2019

CNK Bruinen is a G2 son of Broham x Snowfall. Photo 11 months.  Bruinen is a faded badger, about 30 " at the shoulder so far, born with brown patches which faded to silver and then almost all the way to white.  He has a dark black nose, and dark skin around his eyes. He is only 1/4 Pyr.

Standing at Stud

CNK Broham, G1 Turkish Mastiff outcross.

Broham doesn't look like a CMD.  Most CMDs have Turkish breeds in their make up and I decided to go back and do some foundational genetic stuff.  Broham is a cross of Turkish breeds, mainly Boz. Bro has the height, (35 inches!, the build, and above all, the dead chill affable temperament I am looking for.  He's been xrayed and passed his hip check. Shown with my 6' husband. :-) Bro is still growing and "butt hiigh" in this shot, but he's  grown into himself now.

Broham is a great livestock guardian, and I can let him out at night and have him do a perimeter sweep.  After he's done he joins me for chores, greeting my equines and staying by my side.  His son, Bruinen, is above and has his dad's wonderful temperament and is a gorgeous dog. 

The Girls

Crack O' Noon Ithilien

Ithilien is a G2 CMDR/ARBA registered Colorado Mountain Dog, the daughter of Arya and Glenstorm. Ithilien is happy happy! She is an elegant and regal pup, 18 months in this photo. She's mellow, a people lover, a joy to have around, low energy unless there is a reason, a big girl who carries herself beautifully. She is being raised with livestock, and is quiet and gentle with them. Ithilien has passed her vet hip x-ray.

We will be having one litter in 2020 with Ithilian and Bruinen...see the Available page.

Crack O' Noon Peregrin, Female G3, Bandersnatch x Ithilien, Sept 17, 2019 CMDR/ARBA

Peregrin is a beautiful silver fading badger. She will fade to almost pure white, with a few silver tips.  She's a sweetheart, and we're hanging on to her to watch her grow. 

 PDP Anduin, G2 July 24, 2019

I am excited about this Caspian line girl who has an above average working ethic, yet still loves people.  She's beautiful, on top of that, with an unusually soft silky coat.  Anduin is not a white, but a faded golden badger, who turned white.
