  1. Countryside lawyers will have plenty of work sorting that lot out.
  2. I love all these old photos. They take me back to another time.It all seemed a lot easier then. Buy your lurcher pups from ads in exchange and mart. Plenty of rabbits and hares and mostly not as much bother as these days. Sorry about the whippet being shot though Charts. Must've been gutted.
  3. I tied some once from white brickies line and they soon turned brown. Wonder how the pink ones do. I've never had any but i have seen flourescent pink builders line.
  4. Do the hobs live together and do they ever fight? I like the yellow nets too but mine do seem to turn a bit brown after a while.
  5. Sorry about the quality lads. I've got an old computer that I can't get into ATM. I'll get round to sorting it sometime and it's got some better pics than these. It's nice to have a few memories when you're getting on a bit. The photo with the hares is 3 taken on one run with a first cross collie grey.
  6. Here's what I would do and I hope this helps you out. first get the dog to sit, fast on command. You can use treats for this if the dog's keen for them. Next is to teach the "look" comand so the dog looks you in the eyes. You might want a "halti" type headcollar that fastens under the dogs chin for this and as a bonus this'll help control any pulling. Again, "look" can be reinforced with treats if the dogs keen for them. Now down to it. At some point as you see a person or dogwalker approach in the distance or you approach a yard with a barking dog, your own dog is going to start to
  7. Proper pictures too. Not some blur in the distance that might or might not be something.
  8. That looks like it's done a bit of something anyway. Could do with a bit of soft bedding in it's kennel maybe though?
  9. Sorry your night was spoiled pal but when they ban dogwork altogether you'll need to poach too or give up. The way you started in I thought they must have twatted you or stole your dog, run you down or robbed the farm or something.
  10. Is it just me or is bottom right pup hovering a couple of inches above the ground?
  11. Bottom left and bottom right look like the same pup, even down to the mark on the back toe. I wonder how they did that?????? Most of these jungle builds are fakes anyway. On the bigger ones you can often spot machinery tracks if you look carefully.
  12. Maybe they'll lose popularity as pets if they sing. My neighbouring farm here has a few harrier types that they run with the local foot pack. When I'm walking my dogs in the the morning they (the neighbors pack) start to sing soon after daybreak. Woo oo oo woo woo.
  13. Bravecto is an edible dose, meat flavoured I think. It's expensive but lasts 3 month whereas most other things onely last a month.
  14. They should never have started with the muzzle thing. It's a stupid and cruel idea. If a hare is caught the most humane end is for it to be killed promptly by the hound. Park coursing is not to my taste either. Hares are used to being chased by predators but being boxed up and moved creates prolonged stress and in my personal opinion is only justified for restocking a suitable area. Park coursing will most likely be banned sooner rather than later. In reply to Sandy's point, I can see how you might think that but in truth, many irish hare populations have evolved in farmland and if t
  15. It's pissing down here ATM and supposed to rain off and on for the next week so if the ground does soften I'll show my young dog a few rabbits before they all get myxi or rvhd. I'm a bit limited as I won't take him where the electric fences are 'til the cattle are in for winter but I know a few silage fields where the fences are off and if I plan my approach with the wind direction I should manage to get him a run or two.
