  1. I said I’d do a quick update on ace as I’ve been getting a few pms about him lately. First cross bull whippet for those that remember me posting a few years back. He’s done all I ask of him. Very handy dog on the lamp. He’s mostly used on fox which he has no problem at all with. A very good dog by day and night. Many people ask about his speed, it’s not bad. He has a very quick get off. Catches most of his slips and will burst cover in pursuit of anything. Ive been so pleased with the little dog that I bred him and have two pups that are 13 weeks old. They are bull whip grey. Here’

  3. I've a first cross wheaten greyhound that I bred myself. The Wheaten was 48 pound strong dog with a good head and the greyhound was on the small side at 24 inchs. The dog pup i kept is 60 pound and about 23 Inchs. Like sandymere said they don't variate much on first cross. If you mix a couple of other breeds in then it can escalate. I'm not a lurcher expert by any means but that's how it turned out for me with a pretty even litter. Turned out perfect for what I need but been honest the dog will always be injury free but if you wanted him to run faster stuff he would lack in gears. I just run

  5. Sensible advice I would also add,..that just because a Cattle Dog shows an inbred ability to herd large dangerous beasts in its native environment,..it does not equate to the catching and killing of vulpines, here in the UK. Obviously, if a particular specimen of this fairly uncommon Greyhound/ACD hybrid decides to grab hold of something, it is physically capable of sorting things out, indeed, my own stock frequently came across things other than rabbits, but, as a whole, there are far better hybrids for that kind of work than ACD's. I do believe that anyone thinking of using such

  6. Due to a shoot taking place on one of our permissions we opted for change of place, Its abit of a tradition we have started at this perticular spot for the last 2 seasons so keeping up with tradition here we were all set up and ready for the off, things looked promising with rabbits moving about all over the place, it wasn’t long before we had a mark off Nell and away we went, in a matter of minutes I had 6 in the bag, i went one way, my mate went the other, as I was lifting my longnets up in typical Nell fashion she was off with nose to the ground hovering up any scent the was to be found, an

  7. I would imagine in the wrong hands they would be a total liability. Cattle dogs are purposely bred to put pressure on whole herds of animals much larger than themselves. If they come across any stubborn beasts they solve the problem with their mouth, I believe that’s where the name “Heeler” comes from. They are robustly built flatout working machines with the heart of a dog fifty times their size if you don’t need that kind of animal in a running dog I wouldn’t add it.

  8. Well,...I enjoyed my time with the ACD hybrids,.no complaints really,...but, as with all types of F1 unions,...I feel it is best to always try and secure, genuine working lines. Obviously, no guarantees with any first cross,...but ya got to try your best...

  9. I've been fancying some sort of Co2 gun for a while now - I wouldn't be without a springer and a PCP but, there's just something satisfying about the way a Co2 gun spits when it's fired. I've been looking at this 2240 on Freeads for a few days - it was just round the corner from me. ......... The previous owner has done a bit to it - GMAC steel breech, shoulder stock, 10.5" barrel, Webley QGS silencer, Nikko Sterling 4x32 ao scope and, some other bits internally. When I went round there to have a look, it turned out that the bloke is a real Crosman nerd - he had l

  31. Went on this little club water for a couple of hours this morning. Had a skimmer a chuck for about 2 hours and then landed 8 carp in a row and pulled out of 3 because I started bullying them to get them in the net quicker , most of them were a decent size aswell .

  32. A lot of blokes here use F1 whippet/cattle for hunting rabbits in the pines as they have great feet.Cattle dogs are strong willed dogs with a fair dose of dingo blood and are great guards.Most don't have the work style of kelpies, but have great heat tolerance and stamina.I used to go ferreting with a mate with a straight cross cattle /grey,was a decent ferreting dog but lacked pace imo.They aren't as good as kelpies or collies at stock work except when a beast breaks from the herd the cattle dogs grab it by the nose and give it a hiding to teach it to stay with the other cattle.

  33. I’ve never seen a acd but I have kelpies and from what I’ve read on here they seem very similar to the kelpies in the sense they need to be doing something constantly, and are very busy dogs. Im not 100% keen on the kelpies but you’ve got to give it to them, they are relentless workers. I couldn’t think of a worse dog to keep in the house, if mine aren’t doing something for 5 minutes they will find something to do, wrong or right.

  37. Just had to get out with Bessy and those huge balls. I was after a rabbit and sadly there was very few. I was on land that usually is crawling with rabbit but I struggled to see any! It was sad and thought after today I shall leave them alone. Anyway eventually and after a few miles I found one to stalk. I got down to 27yds and levelled Bessy on the unsuspecting buck rabbit. I had renewed the pan powder just prior as it had got damp but although the fan flashed quick there was an unusual fizz as it fused through the flashhole slower than normal. I followed through

  39. We've had a couple of boot nips too but the only time the Rangers were involved they sided with me as the dogs were clearly triggered by speed and proximity of the riders. I think it helped that he had a cattle dog riding in his truck too! When he asked the rider if he wanted to press charges (and my arse opened like a theatre curtain at that point as my dogs could be seized) the rider declined. Ranger said something along the lines of "Good. That way I don't have to cite you for speeding, reckless driving, endangering pedestrians and worrying livestock." when the rider visibly gulped a

  43. A lot of mine come from Lakes syndicated for fishing, so its important to get as many out as possible. I think it was about 800kg that came out last year. I tend to have a mammoth cooking session when I do them, and then the fingers ache for a few days, their bodies aren't too bad but the claws can be a pain! If its hot and a few days away from the bin men arriving, the waste STINKS!
