Thanks lads. :victory:

 

Terrier man, i too am low on funds. :blink: I have seen a few for sale on the greyhound web site and some of them are in their thousands. :icon_eek: I just can not afford that sort of money at present.

Thanks anyway mate. :good:

 

The reason i want one for mainly is for breeding, if truth be known and a wee bit of coursing. I know if i want a good race dog, id have to pay threw the nose and even good saplings and pups are fetching crazy money. :icon_eek:

 

Thansk all,

 

Frank.

I rang this morning about Glenmore Spiral, apparently, they have decided not to sell her, but keep her on, as she is getting better. :rolleyes:

Looks like he's bred two litters from her & they haven't come to much the best being a sprinter at Poole so he's getting rid.

He did say on the phone that he did not put her to top class stuff. What concerns me is that she is rather big? But the man sounds ok other then that. his from the Uk by the sound of it?

In this "Misc Ads" on Greyhound-Data there is a 19 month old bitch that won`t chase the lure, Free to GH ,

she on the Uk mainland but you could get her taken over the water for about £70

if you just want it for rough coursing should do you,

 

but I would put an ad on one of the greyhound sites saying you are looking for a pup that is not chasing the lure to use as a hunting companion and you will probably be fitted up in no time with a young bitch rather than an old bitch that has had pups and is not up to much

 

 

Hope this helps

Agree. From what iv seen over the last couple of days. :yes:

 

Track ones seem aloof and none responsive and want to kill and fight all round them, it seems, with strange dogs. :blink:

i dont know about them wanting to fight everything the few ex track i had were all sound with dogs one big black bitch i had was a bit iffy with terriers.

she only lasted a few weeks here,i got her from a fella who used to visit these sites,he dropped her off.

a few days passed and i started to take her out hoping to take the odd fox with her.

the problem with her was when i come to put the lead on her,her lips would roll back showing all her teeth at me and she wasnt smiling,i crapped myself :laugh: .

for the few weeks i had her i got the misses to go up the yard and put the lead on her so i could walk it, it had know problems with her what so ever.

i got the fella to come and get her soon after.

Their feet are poor, they have a strange life thewm track hounds ;)

Na track hounds can be very well built dogs with fine paws just seems some let them go to waste by standing them up i.e not racing them as much as they should!

they just don't put up with running hard on uneven ground,there only used to nice sand or level surface,not ruts or rough ground :no:

in general coursing bred greys are that bit tougher but apart from size and weight which after all can put the larger greyhound at more risk of injury due to more stress being placed on their skeletal structure at speed they are no different from the usually smaller , lighter bred track greyhounds, after all all track breds descend from their coursing cousins as there were no tracks in GB til i think 1926 and as the oval sport took off they schooled coursing bred dogs to the track as at the time there was no such thing as track bred dogs, mick the miller started his career in the field and in the last 15 years before the --- there has been a few track bred dogs winning the waterloo while compeating against a predominantly coursing bred field. if these track breds are inferior in any way to their coursing bred cousins how against the odds did they lift the cup, to win anything on track or field you need a dog with enough pace but imo also heart, drive , gameness, determenation and a will to win if you have a dog with these attributes be there track or coursing bred with a knowlagable trainer and a little luck (which is always needed) and usually good breeding you can win in the field, as for people stating different faults for track breds its bullshit. you get shite in e4very breed but as a whole they are sound in mind and temprement. a few lads off this site saw me run a greyhound on daytime hares and he could more than put up a good show i could run him 4 or 5 strong daytime hares in a day out with no ill effects he was track bred by greyhouind of the year droopys rhys out of ryefield snowy hard weight he was 64 lb he ran like a lurcher sticking to the back of his quarry and not overshooting on the turn like the 90 lb coursing dogs of today which are bred for pace and pace alone and imo to big to breed or use for a lurcher base. imo when using a greyhound for a lurcher base you want a bitch between 54lb and 66lb with the right attributes of breeding , conformation and willingness to hunt , course ect and a dog between 60lb and 74lb . the above is only my opinion but said through what iv seen and learnt from supporting greyhound coursing clubs and participating in daytime hare coursing to rules and freehand pre ban of course.if you could find a well bred coursing bred with the above qualities brilliant but just because its track bred dont wright them off. :yes:
