MoMo’s got the gift of the gab. This five-year-old Hickinbotham of Dromana resident loves telling his owners to “get a wriggle on”, “throw the ball already” and “let me in; I’m cold”. “Kelpies are smart,” says owner/operator Terryn, and it seems to be true. She continues. “Kelpies definitely have a way of telling you what they want. He has a loud insistent bark when he is playing ball, a single low bark when he wants to be let in and he almost meows when he wants something. He follows me everywhere. I just love him.” And who wouldn’t — check out that face!

“We got him from a working farm in Moama. One of my son’s best mates owned the property and he was one of nine puppies. That’s how we got his name too. Moama . . .  MoMo,” she explains. And the work ethic appears to be built into this gorgeous dog’s DNA. 

She continues. “He goes to work with us every day helping herd sheep and also helps out under the nets chasing down pesky birds in summer and over autumn.” But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t need a bit of rest and relaxation. “On a hot day you’ll find him asleep beneath one of the wine tanks in the winery and in winter he likes to stay curled up in the car where he’s warm and dry,” says Terryn.

MoMo likes interacting with guests at Hickinbotham too. “Well, he’s totally obsessed with chasing a ball, so if anyone looks even a little bit interested, he’s on to it. This is a real kelpie trait. He hasn’t quite mastered the act of return to the thrower yet, though. He drops the ball about 10 feet away, crouches and then stares at you. He’s very friendly but he also likes his own space and definitely hates being chased.”

So next time you’re in Dromana and feel like a bevvy or two, say hi to a leash-free Safety Beach cohort who loves a splash in the sea as long as there aren’t any waves. He might be chowing down on raw chicken and steak offcuts from the kitchen or roaming around the beautiful Hickinbotham of Dromana grounds. Either way, he’s worth meeting.
