Jimmy or other readers..
What do you think of this mating.
http://www.greyhound...4&damid=1317899
Pure Irish blood lines are getting hard to find in South Africa and i like them very much, so i think this mating will be good to keep the Irish Bloodline allive in South Africa for some time..



they are getting difficult enough to find in ireland (i.e no american or aussie bloodlines) .The mating you put up is line bred to a very good bitch.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZZ4gOw_y2k

Hello Tinytiger,
Thanks for the video.
But why did they start to cross the Irish dogs with the american or Aussie lines? coz to what i have seen and read Irish Greyhounds is bit faster than Aussie but not sure about american dogs never had them so cant say anything. This white male in my avatar is a very very good sprinter and that makes his offspring very good when crossed with dogs that have staminna (SA Boerwindhond).. But i like the sprinting power of my Irish male and will do anything to keep the Irish bloodlines as clean as i can..

Your prospective brood has a good dose of American & Australian blood in her on her damline.

yeah sorry pal i dont really know what there is to hunt over it was basic before the ban rabbit hare fox deer rat and maybe squirrel but now rabbit and rat i just thought over there i thought there would be a wide variety of hunting but good point about them running far as it is alot different over here but is it just me or is it not all plains as far as the eye can see im intreged(not sure about the spelling)but them duiker look like you would need a good strong dog to tackle one and do you have saluki x's over there to do springbok or is it just not that easy

Sorry i took so long to reply..
Well if the dog can catch it you can take it, but for fast running animals like the Steenbok you will need a dog that can run fast and have stamina that's why i like crossing the Racing Greyhounds with this Greyhounds that you find here in South Africa, 50/50 mix is a much better hunting dog for bucks, but you must know the place where you hunt or you may end up with a broken dog..
I will post some pics of my racing Greyhound x Boergreyhound.. She is still young but learning nicely..

The crosses 50 % irish 50% australian have been very successful on the track ,nearly all derby winners over the last few years have been bred that way. American sires havnt done as well here with the exception of hondo black-they tend to breed staying dogs rather than racers compeditive over the classic 525yds/550yds distance..Id say the changing of the irish derby from 525 to 550 yards had a fair bit to do with the success of imports-the early paced irish lines were just seeing out the 525 - early pace was way more important.
