About me

My full name is Killiebrae Amos.
I was born on the 27th May 2011 on a farm in Cumbria, where I lived with my mum Floss and my four brothers and sisters.
My dad, Flash, is a clever sheepdog, as are lots of my relatives. I might have been a sheepdog too. My new mum doesn’t have any sheep, so for the time being, I’m just going to help by keeping an eye on the ducks.



  1. Wow, a relation with a blog. Sorry, should introduce myself. I’m Killiebrae Jake, my dad is Killiebrae Jack and my mum is Cloverhill Meg. I was born in January so I’m just over 10 months old now. I don’t have any sheep or ducks, but I’ve started to do some stuff they call foundation work for when I start agility. My big “brother” says agility is great fun so I’m looking forward to learning to do it properly when I’m a bit older. Seems like it will be good because he goes out at the weekend and comes home with rosettes and trophies, but he says that’s only when he has a good day. Anyway, all the best for now, and enjoy hearding those ducks. Jake.

    • Hi Neil
      I have a dog from the Cloverhill Meg x Jack litter, I’d love to see some pictures of your boy 🙂

  2. I am so excited to hear from you, Jake 😀
    I think my Mum wants to do agility with me too, when I’m old enough. I did a little bit at my first school, when the teachers put out tents and a tunnel and sticks in a line and a plank of wood on the floor. It was fun 😀

      Mum likes to read about you all, too.
      She particularly likes your photographs.
      It’s good to have blog-writing-machine friends as well as “real” ones, isn’t it 🙂

  4. Dear Ali and Julian, Some years ago I climbed the Morrone near Braemar (Scotland), without getting a good photo. Not surprisingly, the weather was misty. Now I am putting together a blog of my hikes and treks. Would it be possible to use your beautiful photo of the mountain–with appropriate credit, of course? In any case, thanks and best wishes for good travelling–Jay Shir, Jerusalem

    • Hi Jay. Not sure you meant to post your request here, but I’ll pass it on to Julian and Ali.

  5. Amos is lovely – I really enjoy reading his blog. We have 2 Killiebrae’s (Bolt 3 years and Blake 6 months) and you couldn’t ask for better dogs. Is Amos related to Laddie? Wish we were lucky enough to do some herding but there is nothing nearby so we have to settle for flyball and agility.

    • Thank you. It’s a self-indulgent activity, writing his blog, but I’m always glad when someone enjoys reading it! 🙂
      Killiebrae Laddie is Amos’ great grandad on his mother’s side.
      We have a two and a quarter hour drive to sheepdog training, but it’s well worth the journey. Amos knows where he’s going and starts whining excitedly when we’re a few miles away.He sleeps soundly all the way home!
      I’ve done a bit of agility with him and he loved it – must try to fit that in too!

    • 😳
      I’m always pleased to hear about any relatives of mine 😀
      Say, “Hello!” to Bolt and Blake from me!
