  1. you want to get that stitched, or stapled up, depending on when injury a occured, looks like a barbed wire gash, nasty, keep it well cleaned and rest the dog, probably take a while to heal. atb
  2. if any ones intrested in a jeff burrell tumbler lurcher, theres an ad for them in this weeks cmw, price tag £500-£600, might satisfy some of your doubts, about what he breeds.

    New tattoo

    yes your right tats, that bloke was lal hardy, used to run a lurcher called tip, he was from muswell hill, believe he went up market with his tattoo business, think hes still dolng work today.
  4. execellent reply toolebox, you certainly seem to know what your talking about, iknow it hit new zealand and australia,years ago, you will have experienced it big time, heard it jumped species into kangaroos wallabies, dont know if thats true though.lets hope we never see the rabbit gone forever.
  5. this rhd is a strange disease, a few years ago, it wiped out the majority of rabbits in my local area, these past few months the rabbits have been making a good come back, with no mxyi as yet, even got my self another ferret to have a go this season,but a mate of mine was on land only about 15 mls away, and tells me hes finding dead rabbits lying round,with no visible injurys, seen rabbits with it pissing blood from the nose, and in convulsive states,was told that once rabbits contact it they usually keel over and die within about 4hrs, but stand corrected.
  6. dont mess about mate, get him to the vets,better safe than sorry,could be atrapped nerve, or pulled muscles.
  7. now the seasons starting up again, couple of the local butchers, were asking me could i supply them with a few skinned rabbits, over the winter months, seems to be good numbers this year, prices werent to bad they were offering,but been told by a few lads that you can no longer sell them direct due to this track and trace movement in animals, think game is diffrent if your a licensed dealer buying from estates and shoots, mate told me he tried to selling woodpigeons, but got told b7y a butcher he wasnt allowed to take them, this is all new to me, as i havent sold rabbits for a few years now.
  8. this young hob ,i got here, is as mad as the day is long, handle it 3 times a day,alright once you get hold of it, buthas a fair old go at your hand and spits and barks when and you try to pick it up, very skulky and nippy,not like a nice easy going white ferret,these type are like the ones that abbot bros from norfolk used to breed in ferret courts years ago, still im going to perserve with it, can see their very lively and active never stays still, only when its fed achunk of rabbit.
  9. bloody hell,keeping hares like that, aint right, most lads keep ferrets in bigger hutches than those poor buggers are housed in, reckon they must be breeding them for the table, or releasing them for coursing, could be wrong,what nationality is the guy doing commentary sounds french to me,
  10. BRED AND KEPT ALBINO AND POLECATX FERRETS, FOR YEARS,HAVENT BOTHERED TO KEEP ANY FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS SINCE RABBIT NUMBERS STARTED TO DECLINE, BUT THE OTHER DAY, MATE OF MINE OFFERED ME A EU POLECAT KIT,SO I TOOK HIS KIND OFFER ON,COMPLETELYNEW TYPE OF FERRET TO ME, ANY OF YOU LADS TELL ME WHAT TO EXPECT FROM IT WORKWISE, TEMPERAMENT, AND WHAT THERE LIKE WHEN FULLY MATURED, WOULD THEY BE ANY BETTER THAN THE TRADITIONAL FERRET,THE BLOKE I GOT IT OFF DOESNT WORK THE PARENTS, THINK THERE JUST PETS, BUT AM LOOKING FORWARD TO TRYING HIM OUT LATER IN THE SEASON AND SEE HOW HE GOES.
  11. EXCELLENT WRITE UP BOSUN 11 SPOT ON WHAT YOU SAY, IN MY BOOK, IF YOUR DOGS HAVE GIVEN YOU THEIR ALL OVER LONG YEARS THEY STILL DESERVE GOOD FOOD, A WARM BED, AND DEVOTION FROM YOU,IF YOUR A TRUE DOGMAN, THEY DESERVE IT, TILL THE TIME COMES TO SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR LOYAL AND FAITHFUL COMPANION, MIGHT SOUND SOPPY TO SOME ON HERE, BUT TO ME MY DOGS ARE JUST NOTSOMETHING TO BE DISGARDED WHEN THEY GET TOO OLD TO WORK ANY LONGER, BUT THATS JUST MY OPINION.
  12. GOT TO AGREE WITH YOU GILBEY, IM NOT A CHOP AND CHANGE MERCHANT WITH MY DOGS AND NEVER HAVE BEEN, ALWAYS FOUND THAT BEDLINGTONXS AND WHIPPET TYPEXS WORKED WELL EVEN INTO OLD AGE, IF ENTERED CORRECTLY ANDW0RKED AND FED PROPERLY MOST LURCHERS WORK TIRELESSLY FOR YOU EVEN AT A GOOD AGE, MY OLDEST LURCHER IS A DEERHOUNDX AND IS 11 YRS OLD,STILL LAMPING HIM LAST WINTER AND HAD AFEW WITH HIM,CAUGHT A RABBIT ONLY YESTERDAY ON A GENTLE STROLL, OTHERDOG IS DEERHOUND X AGAIN AND IS 6YRS OLD AND TO ME IS IN HIS PRIME, WILL RUN HIM THIS WINTER, THE DEERHOUND DOES HAVE ONE OF THE SHORTEST WORKING LIVES OF
  13. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PHIL, REMEMBER AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER, AT SEVENTY YOUR STILL SHITTIN YELLOW FELLAH LOL, KEEP DOING WHAT YOU LOVE AND DONT SIT STILL TOO LONG, THE ARMCHAIR IS MORE OF A KILLER THAN THE FRYING PAN, AND KEEP WRITING THE BOOKS.ATB
  14. HI DARBO, JUST BEEN LOOKING THROUGH MY COLLECTION OF BOOKS, FROM THAT ERA, IVE DEFINETLY GOT VOLUMES 1 AND 2 OF THE JOURNAL OF RUNNING DOGS, EDITED BY PHILL LLOYD BOTH STILL IN GOOD CONDITION, THE ONLY OTHER BOOK THAT I HAVE IS A 1991 RUNNING DOG YEAR, THINK IT WAS WRITTEN BY GARY HOSKER, A NICE LITTLE READ,CANT FIND ANY JOURNAL RELATING TO 1990, MAYBE THIS IS THE 3RD ONE YOUR THINKING OFF, WAS ALWAYS KEEN TO BUY THOSE SORT OF BOOKS IN THE DAY, THAT 3RD BOOK WAS PUBLISHED BY ARGENT BOOKS, WHERE PHILS WERE PUBLISHED BY FIELD FARE, SUPPOSE THEY COULD BE WORTH A FEW BOB ON EBAY, ATB.
