  1. From here in Ireland I had to join the forum and log in to view any threads. I don't understand how guests get on in the first place.
  2. £ seems OK. It would cost the same or more here. When your dog needs small things doing try going to different vets each time. In my experience some vets charge less if they think you're not very well off. If you find one and they seem to know dog injuries well, stick with them.
  3. I don't agree with Whin about this. In the early days of the "Shooting News" there were far more articles for the dog and ferret crowd. "Pesters Pen", "Lloyd on lurchers" ,"The Warrener","Dargi" etc. and of course Brian Plummer had a few articles in there. Whether or not you agreed with peoples opinions it was always interesting to hear them. One of my favourites of all time was Phil Lloyds discussion with "PC Alec Brown" about travellers. Anyone remember that? I don't buy it these days as there're only ever two or at most three articles I'd even read and Penny's are usually the only good on
  4. My tip is buy at least two and put cords on them to hang round your neck. Acme silent whistles don't come cheap. Oh No, they come expensive . Oh and when your out with one round your neck don't fall while climbing through a hedge or you might hang yourself.
  5. But they aren't INFRARED filters. The normal red filter emits visible red light. An infrared filter emits INVISIBLE light as mentioned above. It also cots a lot more money than a red filter.
  6. How does it get experience of woodland without going in it? If it grows up tearing round open fields it won't have a clue about woodland.
  7. All I would suggest is standing away from your mate and his dog while your bitch retrieves her rabbit. This is something that happens particularly with collie bred lurchers. I guess it's one of their potential faults.
  8. What Fordie said + wheaten. Also the various mixtures of them.(Bitzas). It depends what you want to hunt with them and what suits your own temperament really but those breeds mixed with greyhound and whippet make versatile dogs. My own favourite is collie and greyhound but many would disagree with me.
  9. The lads not looking for an out and out coursing dog or I'd have advised him to go for a saluki cross, preferably line bred from successful coursing lines.
  10. Either of those crosses will catch hares. I'd go for the beardy cross too.
  11. Hi chid21, I've used a mark1 box and collars with my ferrets for years. I was thinking of replacing it with a mark2 as I thought it might be a bit more waterproof. Why do you think the mark1's better? Whats wrong with the mark2?
  12. The lad himself is not asking too much by wanting a decent dog but... I think he is asking too much of one dog to be any good at three very different disciplines. Sure you can get good lamping and ferreting dogs and good lamping and daytime dogs but a good lamping, ferreting and daytime dog??? one step too far old bean. Im sure they exist but i think what you'll end up with is either a dog that ferrets well but gets laughed at by hares or a dog that bowls them over but gets bored and wonders off when its supposed to be watching nets. Its just my opinion What you can have is a dog that
  13. Now that is interesting. I've owned and run mainly collie greyhound crosses for the last thirty six years but I was thinking they were unpopular at the moment. There certainly don't seem to be many first cross litters for sale these days.
  14. not stupid at all mate .. if you search it on here there is a bloke that does it .. unsure of his name but im sure someone will be able to tell you more atb His thread is a sticky at the top of the livestock "for sale" section.
