    Jon, ask anybody thats ever crossed Bull into a line of terrier of any sort and they'll tell you it takes generations of breeding to get back to a size for fox, most in the past that did this were historically breeding for increased size of head and conformation in order to work badger (pre-ban) or in the countries were heavy work is still legal, this was not Plummers intention, it was merely a case of attempting to rectify the massive differences occurring in size between dogs and bitches, there were also lots of litters being whelped without any bitches, his theory was that inbreeding or line breeding and over use of the same stud dogs had lead to this, the size of the "New blood" progeny did come down with each generation, I personally felt that a nice tight coated red Patt or Lakey would of achieved the goal a lot sooner and without the cruel culling that Tim and Sue found necessary, I always remember Plummer being asked "what was the best Terrier you ever bred and worked" and his answer surprised many thinking it would be "OMEGA" or some other famous terrier and yet he said "PAGAN", a first cross being Plummer/patt, food for thought and I was breeding this cross for 20yrs just for fox, WM The photo on page three is a son of pagan with his daughter

  5. Anyone Know

    I just had a quick look on the I.K.C. site to see if I could find anything about the Ard Na Greine prefix but there's nothing.Isn't there a country estate in Cork of that name. Maybe they had terriers ? Either ways, if I had that I'd use it to advertise the next litter and sell them to the yanks for thousands. Just googled it comes up as a Kerry blue dog born in 1982, if it's correct of course

    Think he means the forthcoming season, I had to look twice at it, careful entering is one thing but fourth season, bloody hell.
  7. Toffee?

    What was he used for then?
  8. Toffee?

    old stuff! Wouldn't have thought these dogs go back much more then 25/30 years if that..That is quite a few years in terriers TW would you not say?old enough for the "old" stuff As mango put it.. LolSorry, should I have said early stuff as old stuff is obviously wrong?
  9. Toffee?

    This little bitch is eighteen months and is mainly Stevens stuff, I think she has the look of his old stuff about her. Both her and the grass are overdue for the clippers. Sorry can't upload for some reason
  10. Moral Of The Story Is?????

    Well he wrote the above statement..About someone he knew that I said was a load of bollocksSorry mate, so it is someone nick knows who has the Russel pack? Well I agree with you it is a load of cobblers
  11. Moral Of The Story Is?????

    I used to hunt with nick and I can assure you he didn't have a pack of Russell's he had griffon vendeens, hairy French bassets,he did however run two pit bulls with his pack. Better add this was a while ago but he only had the odd terrier about him at that time.

    Not the best photo as the focus was on the red bitch in the centre, little bitch on the left Plummer terrier breeding, never saw a rat in her life,was an out and out digging terrier and worked to a very high standard. IMG_0241.JPG Nice looking yoke Mango, I'm not saying they'll not work to ground far from it because I've no experience with the breed and that terrier looks like it's seen work. I was looking an explaination as to why SOME folk that keep this type of terrier reckon they are more versatile than most other breeds of terrier? My point being that not many of the owners do serious earthwork with them yet they believe there versatility in other genres out weighs that. I wanted to know what they're so good at that any other terrier can't be trained to do. Again it's a genuine question. AtbGeneral,that is quite an old photo to be honest probably way before they became as widespread as they are now.And I agree with your post 100 per cent.

    Was this the first time the dog had failed and did he work to an acceptable standard before this?
  15. Haggler

    Jason's off again is he giving his 50p worth haha, he did the same with the "Bonus" dog, but the hypocrite used both haggler & bonus on his bitches...He used hagler but not bonus,the litter by hagler wasn't very successful by all accounts.no no he also used bonus!!Apparently not but if you say so what bitch did he use him on?
