She’S Getting Better

Recommended Posts

Im now happy with the way my 14 month old Whippet is coming on, at first she didnt know how to strike, she seemed to be using her feet but after her first rabbit she started to get the hang of it.

Last night I slipped her on her first long ears, she picked it up but had a bad tumble and she let go. The second one she struck at it twice taking the fur from its back end, it was lucky and got through the hedge.

Im hoping its only a matter of time, the more I run her the better shell get, shes very keen so Im sure she wont get sick.

Ohh lamping long ears ??? That's going against the grain, if ur dogs not fast enough to catch them in the day do t run them at night ! Just my opinion 🍺

Im interested to here what other lads think who have experience with pedigree Whippets, what age they should start on the bigger ones. Lamp or daytime.

i found mine not capable of that job. Didnt have the gears to do it properly and would only catch the odd one out of luck.

I think it doesn't matter wether u lamp or daytime or whatever else to catch big ears as long as you eat them not throw them in the edge what a waste beautiful meat
