Yeah your right Tomo some f****r would do that .... :whistling: and Nighteyes we maybe tempting fate here but touch wood the dogs have sustained nothing untoward upto press by running on tough terrain in parts of the Dales SO far...fingers crossed i ain't spoke to soon lol..our dog Don cracked a bone in his hind leg last winter and it's always in the back of my mind when he's running but one thing is for certain i won't wrap him up in cotton wool...it's not my style and not his either..what will be will be? ATB Andy. :victory:

mine always suffer more, running daytime on winter wheat,, the loose tiled soil gets in the quiks and makes them sore,,, up there if your on flat thik grass pastures, its kind on there feet,,,,,,of course some parts are worse than others,, especialy some of the boulder strewn hillsids, they can be a problem, and dangerouse

tomo i think a dvd would be a great idea for you to do i would definatly but one mabey if you get every one to pay a deposit before you make it though so you will still get a few quid before it gets copied am sure the lads on here would trust you ps well done by the way on another great haul
