Taken from the Huntaway Club site - you'll find more info there.
The Huntaway is used throughout New Zealand to drive and manage the massive flocks of sheep. They are now regarded as part of the heritage of New Zealand. Huntaways are trained primarily to drive the sheep ahead of or away from the handler. The Huntaway uses it's bark to gather and drive the flock. Special events were developed for these dogs at sheep-herding trials. The events were referred to as "huntaways", which eventually gave the dog its name. - - - There are two recognised types of Huntaway: long haired and short haired.
Colour - Black and tan, tricolour (black, tan and white) and brindle.
All pictures are from Goats unlimited who use the huntaway on their extensive farm!
They may be shown only at exemption shows in the NON-PEDIGREE CLASSES.
