American Farm Collie

Toby was our American Farm Collie, and The Farmer’s best buddy.  He was also my personal escort wherever I go on the farm.  Sadly, he passed away after many years of devoted friendship. We really miss him.

He was a handsome boy, and loved to play.  His favorite activities included playing in water and dispensing water on every tree, twig and blade of grass he passed.

He was tough when something threatened me or one of his charges, but very gentle to the little ones around here.
