  1. I went to the Autumn Game Fair ay Ardingly yesterday. Is it me or are all Game Fairs just turning into posh car boot sales? I was really disappointed - no ferrets, no lurchers. Lots of cheap tat for sale and not a lot else. At least it ONLY cost £9 to get in. The game fair at the Bath & West was awful - lots of guys in camo parading mastiffs and cookware for sale. I didn't go to the CLA game fair 'coz it cost at least £25 to get in. Is it me? Maybe I'm just a grumpy sh*t??
  2. What about a cheeteh? They really fast and spotty!!!!
  3. The attitude of some people on here amazes me. Too macho. Too much aggression. No respect for wildlife, the countryside, other peoples' opinions. The list goes on. If I wanted to get all hunting banned, I would come on here, copy a few messages / threads and publish them in a newspaper. The public would be outraged. I think we ALL need to bear this in mind when we write something on here. Who's watching and could what we say and the way we act damage our future hunting.

  5. I've had two Hancock puppies; 1 out of Enoch (Richard Jones) and 1 out of Hector (unworked Beardie), both great dogs. Lance looks a quality (well built) collie, but if in doubt call David. He'll answer all your questions and won't lie. And he'll be able to tell you what the half crosses come out like. I'll probably get another pup from him next year.
  6. Hello. Thumbing my copy of Lambourn, I noticed the above named characters and was wondering if they're still breeding lurchers or if anyone knows what happened to them (if anything)? Thanks
  7. My dog got attacked by 4 Rottweiler crosses, was pushed into a river and I had to jump in to pull him out. All the while the owner stood there and did nothing - seemed stunned. Then as I walked away, he had the audacity to blame my dog 'coz he was off the lead. I did report him to the Police, who located him through a local vet. His dogs had previously done the same to other dogs. I didn't get any joy. What I didn't understand is that if he loved his dogs like I love mine, I would muzzle them so at least they couldn't do the any / as much damage, but as other people have mentioned here - there's some strange people about. Hope the puppy gets better, but learn the lesson - every adult dog can easily kill your pup and if you don't know them, don't trust them! And don't get me started on retired racing greyhounds!

  9. Lovely puppy and yes I'm jealous too. I lost my old Hancock dog (Moses, out of Enoch) last year and have been thinking about a new dog for sometime. Good luck. And do you know what's really nice about this thread, no idiot has written anything nasty about you, your new pup or David Hancock. Amazing!!!
  10. I'm so sorry. My thought are with you.
  11. Could it be that once upon a time to own a poor performing dog wasn't financially viable? Maybe in the past the point of owning a lurcher was to provide food for the table? Nowdays, whilst many dogs do provide food for their owners, do many people rely on it to survive? In this day and age, should anyone buy any dog unless you can care for it throughout it's life? I think not.....
  12. I own a beardie x greyhound bitch. Superb. Indestructible feet, super-tough skin, great coat, fast and intelligent. Can't fault her.
  13. better ones i found stewie Boar baiting? WTF? I thought this was a hunting forum? are you for real that aint baiting thats hunting they have to find an animal first I'd say that's unnecessary suffering, but what do I know? Back to the thread.
  14. Don't admit to anything. He has to prove your negligence caused the injury. If he was intoxicated, it may be in your favour. If he wants compensation, tell him to put it in writing to your insurance company. Your household insurance should cover it unless your dog is mentioned in the Dangerous Dogs Act.
