  1. Thank you mate , certainly fingers crossed after the last one
  2. Fingers crossed , he is a bit ignorant but is certainly keen and my boy has his litter brother.
  3. My young fella , about 11 months now . Sire is 5/8th 3/8th , dam is bull whippet x grey .
  4. The first lurcher I owned was a collie x and would often look at rabbits it knew it had no chance of getting and wouldn't attempt to run them , if they were 50/50 he would quite often stalk down the side of the beam trying to gain ground before putting in the hard work of the chase . It was never a problem for me I think he was just a clever dog who was never too fast and had to use his brain more than all out speed . At the end of the day he caught really good numbers of rabbits and we rarely drew a blank , but he was also a great family dog , would go for miles with the missus beside her hor
  5. I had a lot of fun with my old one , bred similar 1st cross to 1st cross . Got him at about 18 months and he was absolutely useless for until he was about 3 , always seemed he couldn't control his legs or how fast they could go . He was never a world beater and it took ages for him to turn in a field but when he was motoring it was a sight , properly fast and the way he picked up rabbits was something special to watch . Good luck with your one he looks a nice pup .
  6. They look a good hardy pair . How are they bred please ?
  7. The weather soon changes up there that's for sure , could see snow on the peaks from where I was looking across. We did have a few flurries yesterday on Bodmin moor but didn't come to much .
  8. View across to Dartmoor from the tractor this morning.
  9. Lol... they are just in shadow mate
  10. Here's a few hinds from near me
  11. I dont think the hinds would be to much trouble as long as the dog could get on terms with them , the way he was talking he had had a few with the bitch . Some of the lowland stags I have seen though are monsters .
  12. I was chatting to a lad I have known for years the other night and the conversation turned to reds ( or pre ban reds as it was ) . He had a few tales . First he was sat in cover next to a hedge with his bitch 3/4 grey 1/4 bull as his mates were drawing a marsh with beagles to flush foxes through . He said he heard something big coming along the hedge line behind him and he thought it was going to be a moorland pony , a red hind launched itself off the wall next to him straight out into the open ground in front of him . He slipped the bitch and within about 100 yards the dog had the hind
  13. Our pups are fine with chickens , sheep , pigs , horses etc and yet put up a pheasant in the field and gave chase , funny how they seem to know what they are allowed to do already . And they have a fair bit of bull in them .
  14. Is Joe that bred the dogs still alive and running dogs then ?
  15. How big was Jack and did you see him work ?
  16. He reckons the bitch he had would of been 3/4 grey , so assume Jack over a pure grey , best dog he has ever had he says took everything and no reverse . Both parents of our 2 are well tested by all accounts so fingers crossed for them
  17. I am probably confusing you as well as I did my self . My mate had a bitch years back that was meant to be bred from Jack so half sister to Arthur ( thats where i got mixed up ) , he then put her to a dog called Floyd from Dorset way and also bred from Jack . This was how the father to our pups was bred . The mother of ours is a bit of an unknown , she is a greyhound x whippet bull that belongs to another mate , he got her from Wales but doesn't really know to much about her breeding , but is well pleased with her . Not trying to be the big I am quoting names etc just genuinely inter
  18. Not certain on the father but by recollection he must be at least 8 years old if not a bit more . The bitch is about 7 .
  19. Little bit of ferreting at the weekend , both growing well 16 and 18.5 kg respectively should make nice handy dogs
  20. I stand corrected on this , both the mother and father to my pups father were bred from Joe Smiths Jack not Arthur as I stated .
  21. Be interesting to know if anyone knew of the floyd dog which was meant to be Arthur's son and was from Dorset area .
  22. Sorry misread it , thought he meant Jack was put over a 1/4 bull bitch
