  1. Hi all, does anyone know if there is a lurcher bitch about 6 months to 4 years old, we’ve just lost one of our dogs and her sister is on her own, a loving home for life awaits. Preferably we would want a Norfolk type but a rough coated collie cross lurcher would be fine, it has to be a bitch though. Thanks in advance.
  2. I’ve been coursing 35 years and have overseen numerous forley cups and I have had the privilege to see some of the finest dogs ever to run and I’ve been very lucky to own one myself, so i do have experience and I stand by my original quote, it seems to me that you’ve already decided on the pups fate, I also know of other dogs from this litter that are doing fine. Also just because one parent hasn’t run that doesn’t mean the offspring will be rubbish, some of the best brood bitches and mares never saw a field or racecourse. I will keep you all posted on my pups progress as I’m pretty sure
  3. Why would you only give a 15 month old pup until the end of the season, this year should be about playing and learning, I have one of these pups and he’s great and I’m really looking forward to next season, you’re running an immature dog on quarry that is starting to get into top gear and how can your dog be fit if it’s been off injured for a couple of weeks, I certainly wouldn’t be writing a dog off after one season.
  4. Always feed raw, I use just natural complete minces, they are really chunky unlike a lot of others which are too much like paste and also feed wings and carcasses. Also I never understand why people feed their dogs and don’t watch until they have finished and then accidents won’t happen.
  5. Maybe the Dorset blue is the one, a friend of mine bought two lurchers from a guy in Beverly a few years ago and it’s supposedly in the breeding. Thanks for the information.
  6. I’m looking for information about the Suffolk blue dog, I don’t know if this is what the locals called it or if it’s an extinct breed. Many info would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Dont work the dog too much when just out of season it can cause problems because of the build up of hormones and fatty tissue, but Im sure you know that. Atb
  8. I have one off pp and he's doing great, he was boxing my other dogs when he was six months old, I've got high hopes for him next season, this season will be a play and learning curve for him.
  9. I've never had a problem with recall with pures or crosses, it depends on the person training or as I say with a saluki how much patience one has because that's what one needs with any animal and sadly some people want perfection without putting any time in.
  10. Hares never stop amazing me and the BBC showing a hare being coursed, never. Ha ha
  11. Mine are fed a raw complete diet and I would never feed a kibble again, most are made in the same factory and just put in different bags. A very good friend of mine was a director at a very large kibble manufacturer and told me horror stories about what went into it, rancid meat and rotten veg and then heated to 1500 degrees and then they add vitamins later and that was a £45 bag of dog food. No thanks
  12. Take a leaf out of the Americans book and f***ing shoot the b*****ds if they try and break in or set a booby trap and cripple them. If only eh. Maybe I'm going over the top but those sort of people don't respond to cautions. They are out and out sewage scum.
  13. I saw it online on the news channel, I think the story was originally in the sun, but search online and you will find it.
  14. I wonder how many of those morons who passed about a baby dolphin that had been separated from his mother to take pictures until it died would be the first to say hunting was cruel. Just a thought.
