    Working border types

    Why would somebody go out and pay a grand plus for a coursing pup that might not make the grade,but twist at the price for a well bred border terrier pup.if the breeding is right and you like and want a good pup pay the money and be happy with it.let everybody else twist about the price you payed simple as I’ve had borders for 30yrs and I used to do a lot of digging with them but my back is knackered now but I still choose the right dog to go over the right bitch,as I like to keep the type and not one of them little head snippy nosed things people call borders.

    The only fault with them is they are to quick everything is 100mph with them,like said be ideal to work the nets with your other dogs.tell ya mate he needs to learn about dogs before saying that kind of crap.

    Rabbit decline

    I do every time I go out wether gun,dogs or ferrets,been doing it for years now,I enjoy just been out wondering my days have gone coming back with 60s plus then sitting there gutting and skinning,2 or 3 does me now one of my perms I’ve left for 2 seasons now as I left enough to have a few flights when I had the hawks to and I know it’s safe land as there is only me with perm on it.its good for pheasants during the season as it’s between 2 shoots and the farmer won’t even let them on.theres lads still go out in breeding season which doesn’t help as it’s called that for a reason but they know better till the season starts, then they are twisting cos it’s crap so it’s not just mixi hitting them .i wouldn’t that you for another lurcher now as it wouldn’t do it justice

    If it didn’t carry it back at that age it would be in a hole

    What type are these?

    I got my son 1 yrs ago and it was a good dog but I didn’t pay nowhere near Jeff’s price for it.there is a pic on here of him as photobucket won’t let me upload any pics the dog did everything that got put in front of him.if I got back into the lurchers and had the chance of another like him I would take it no problem.have a look on the Smithfield thread and you can see him on there he is 16yrs old now and stiff as owt after a walk to the top of the street.i think all the knocks and bangs he has had is taking its toll.

    Quick question?

    Taking in the fact of selective breeding,stud fees,bringing the pup up and doing the job it’s cones to time as you wouldn’t work for free everyday of your life would you.but like said horses,greyhounds,pigeons,canaries British birds if you want good stock you pay the price.but like you say lads get slated for selling pups £200 plus.all you have to say to the people then is don’t pay it if you can’t afford it and stop waiting your time.
