  1. good film! what general area of the country was that?
  2. Beautiful dog, but what are you using for the cross?? I've own true pits that are much racier built than that dog
  3. I do, hotbloods (track dogs) break down easy. All the guys from UK that i have met rate the staghounds' brains and good feet, overall toughness. You all probably don't believe some of the rough ground and frozen areas these dogs get run on. --oh god, now I sound like one of those "my dogs are better than your dogs" kind of guy.Not the case, good dogs are where you find them. However, on an interesting note, just about every UK immigrant to the US to a man runs staghounds of some sort here, not conventional lurchers, unless running strictly on our jack (hares), then there is going to be so
  4. whatever you do, take care of their feet. If you shine a pad, back off. if you blow a pad he's done for longer than you think. Trim his nails, if you shell one you're in for a delay, don't forget the dewclaw either. Worm em, deflea em. Feed em added meat. You can swim em, road em, treadmill em and get them legged up and at a hard weight, but you got to get a blow out of em to start getting the lungs and heart ready to hold a course. No matter how good of road shape I get on em, the first few hard blows show you how far off they really are from "running shape" . Don't overheat em too so
  5. Kitty kats?? No. But I have had them nail bobcats in the past. the black female in my avatar, her brother (cowboy von's dog) anchored a mountain lion with two other staghounds back in the day. I believe you can still find that varmint calling video on here somewhere. Unless they are on slips, you don't always get to decide what is coming in to a call. I think there is still a video a a bitch I bred named Gracie that Uphill doc had hanging off the butt of a bear as it climbed 15 feet up a tree, lol. Not usually first choice in coursing quarry. Also some of the UK lads that moved over here are
  6. BOSS' BACKYARD, 850 ACRES WON'T LET ME POST ANY MORE PICS
  7. co Hotbloods are track bred greyhounds, staghounds are coyote dogs almost exclusively. Coldbloods are the slick coated running dogs bred for generations of worker to worker, no close up hotblood (trackdog) in them, can come in same litter as the "shags" or staghounds. Just casual terms, nothing written in stone. My stags have a little pit dog blood, but we don't do the x/8 to y/8 like you do because most of the crosses were done as desired for personal use, even as far back as 100-150 years ago. What worked lived to breed and what didn't.....oh well. Would I try one of your beautiful bu
  8. I put some pics up awhile ago of my coldblood pups. I love this pup, Boss. He is now 10 months and hit a growth spurt, level on the withers at 28 1-4 inches. Not as big or as heavy built as some staghounds I've owned in the past, but smart, great handle, and fences like a veteran, broke to cattle, horses, goats. Boss still thinks rabbits and armadillos are fair game, lol. He and his sister are a good age to get to see some jacks(hares) when the weather breaks in another month or so. Nothing too exciting, I just figure sometimes it's fun to see a pic of another man's dog in another part of t
  9. Whats left of em yes. He made it look easy. His daughter use to til the last 2 years. She just turned 7 and the miles have caught up to her. She still looks ok on the outside for the most part but she is not ok. I only ran her a couple times this last winter just to show her to a few guys but other than that she is pretty much retired. We just bred her to a grandson of Stitch. We shall see. What a beautiful gyp. Being sired by your Stitch out of a Jake daughter, man, what a performance bred girl to raise a few pups out of. If her mother was one of Jakes daughters was it out of my Timex gy

  11. for example, the black gyp in my avitar was heartless on coyotes. She helped start my buddy's two big pups in that pic that were both under a year in age. When caught those three put a coyote down and held it down and finished. That was the first coyote those big pups had ever seen in their lives and both stuck right in. The old Jake dog owned by Neal Hardesty never needed help, but he would run him with young dogs and show them the right way from the start. I have talked to Brits and had them out that were amazed that we actually started our pups out of the black gyp on fox at about a year
  12. Don't know much about this subject..but from what I've just seen on that video... I would have to say that those 3 dogs are Fekking useless. If Coyote was my quarry and those dogs were my team... I would buy a gun. . . I don't see anything I would call sport in that video. All I see is cruelty and suffering in a long drawn out torturous spectacle. Well, that wasn't the cleanest catch, to say the least. All that being said, some of the older males are not to easy to hold much less kill. From the looks of it, that was one of them. They are very tough and good fighters and it takes a
  13. about 20 years ago I bred a Tony Lewis (Lyth) Whippet over a tough little Nuttal x Bolio gyp. Made me a "Point and shoot" varmint dog about 33 pounds in shape. I'll see if I can find a picture of him, some of the boys still have dogs down from him in Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Colorado. They are calling them snap dogs, but are really just tough, quick little lurchers. Butch lost 3/4 of an ear to a coyote, so I cropped him short since it didn't want to heal right. He took everything from rats, rabbits, armodillos, coon, and went right with the stags into fox and coyote. He definitely never to
