    Massive albino hob ferret

    I've worked big hobs about 9 years now was given one at the start of the season off a guy who has some of the best land I've ever been on said it always kills rabbits deepest I've dug on his ground is 1 ft grafts really nice seems to really push rabbits out and you can use him all day long smaller ferrets seem to tire by mid day

    Dropping rabbits

    She marks really well I ferret with the keeper most weeks who said he would take her if she doesn't change he said he isn't bothered she can just travel with him when he feeds up and stuff do her own thing and see if that helps

    Dropping rabbits

    I thought we were getting some where with her but I'm not sure now catching and retrieving all morning then started to catch them and then letting them go again I give up she's like Jekle and Hyde but when she good it's unreal one of the keepers might be having her as a marking dog

    Dropping rabbits

    I think she's due in season August so I don't think it's that, I don't think it's a trust thing she retrieves everything else even a Charlie last week and it's not all the time just odd times she will not catch them again once she has caught it once

    Tried it she doesn't really try with another dog running with her by herself she will hit hedges and cover no problem just hope it's a phase

    I've seen good 3/4 collies catching on the tops down the dales day and night little bitch caught 34 one day working sedge grasses out and 22 was the highest on the lamp I saw her do she was often out run by bolting rabbits but as a dog for finding and catching her own stuff she was hard to beat

    My mate had a reverse 3/4 bitch years ago was a really good dog for the ground we were running in on was outclassed on golf courses or big arable fields but she was rarely outclassed on moorland or woodland she was pretty good with teeth as well
