    Something a little bit different that a mate offered me so worth a try. Bitch is mine and the dogs my mates. Just of the courier from Wales
  6. Has anyone ever run this cross it’s something that’s been in my head for a few years now. I think the foxhound could bring a lot to the table. Stamina. Make a good day time rough hunting dog hopefully be handy markers. It’s something I’ve on my head to do in the next year or two. Try get a decent grey bitch that’s not afraid of teeth and put a good solid old English dog over her that’s a very good marking hound

    Foxhound x greyhound

    Be hard to get a coursing bitch this time of year anything that’s left there keeping for next year and also I wouldn’t get a chance to work it till next season. If it’s no good I’ve to try again and again till I get one. Atleast this way I’ve got access to a very good foxhound bitch and found the stud dog that suits my needs and I’ve a 3/4 lurcher to fall back on if all else fails

    Anyone that’s getting any are thinking the same as me it’s an interesting cross that could be anything from world beaters to not worth kennel space. It’s not just an idea that’s came into my head over night I’ve been thinking about it for years so I said I’d finally try it. Hopefully it will turn out a good gamble

    I will for sure. I’m surprised with the interest in these there 8 pups spoken for if it all goes well. All will be going to friends or friends of friends for free so I will hear how everyone of them turn out good or bad. Most want them as lamping dogs but one mate runs a few begal terrier crosses and he wants one to run with them so will be interesting

    Foxhound x greyhound

    After a bit of searching I’ve found a coursing greyhound 85 pound weight to line the bitch. I struck lucky with the second person I asked. A shooting man I head down to a couple of times a season to work my terriers on his permission. The dog has only been lightly worked before he started coursing but has had teeth and it didn’t faze him at all.

    I’ve no pictures of her she’s about 26 inches and her brother is 27 or that both big athletic hounds. She’s good to mark and not afraid of the sharp end from what Ive seen but there has always been other hounds around her so all I can do is hope for the best it all clicks.

    One for next year
  14. As I’m struggling to find a greyhound doing a bit of graft this is my second option. I’m thinking of lining a foxhound bitch in the summer and I’m looking for a greyhound or a heavily greyhound blooded lurcher must be doing teeth. Something over 27/28 inches with no (Saluki or deerhound blood) preferably as I’m trying to keep the size up. Just putting the feelers out to see what’s about I’ve no problem paying for the right stud or give a pup or 2 back
  15. Well yet to see a very good deerhound. My uncle chased them for years and all his trying failed to find what he wanted. 99% of deerhounds are just kept for shows these days and haven’t seen any real work. Pity to say that but it’s the truth. And as for Saluki I don’t rate them as a good teeth dog and to tell the truth I hate them.simple as. Greyhound is my first choice but finding one that will graft is the problem and I’ll stay looking for one. I’m trying to keep my options open and not just be looking in one direction. I’m breeding a dog that will do me for the next 10 years so I want to do it best I can and not settle for just any old fox dog to cover the bitch
  16. I’ve a bull greyhound in mind but I’m not set in stone I’m going to look for exactly what I want and see what comes of it. I’m not going to rush in and just breed for the sake of it so I’ll keep my options well and truely open
  17. Just wondering is there anyone working any coursing greyhounds in Ireland. Looking to use one on a bitch in the future just weighing up my options.
