World’s most expensive sheep dog?

A couple of weeks ago we wrote about the The Australian Landmark Kelpie Muster, which was held this weekend in Casterton, Victoria.

The Muster included a working dog auction at which Kelpie Bagalla Mick was sold to a Tasmanian farmer for $5,400, breaking last year’s $5,000 record.

According to The Age newspaper, Mick’s trainer, Ian O’Connell said he was not surprised by the amount paid.

“Most tractors cost $100,000 or more so when you think about that, $5400 is not very much,” Mr O’Connell said.
