  2. Greengrass whippets are usually up on done deal here in ireland. Think there going 3 or 4 hundred quid
  3. Brilliant picture. But you should have included the heroes of the day, the miners. Love the dogs.
  4. After a great start to season, a great day's ferreting and a night on the lamp, my whippet took ill, wouldn't leave the box and in obvious pain. Straight to the vet, scans, exrays, blood tests all good so an op to get inside to see what was going on. Her intestine was red boiling raw. She's still with the vet after 4 nights of drugs and recovery. Don't know what caused it. Waiting now for the the open heart surgery on my wallet!!. Sure what can ya do.
  5. Switched to this from the shavings about two years ago. Have found it great. Very absorbent and dust free. 10 quid a bag.
  6. Best of luck, sounds a great mix. Seriously looking at a litter here at the moment, sire is out of a beddy/ grey and beddy whippet cross, dam is a full whippet.they looking great pup's.
  7. I've been putting out rabbits from different Warren's for a while now in the hope that it might strengthen the genepool,I'm fortunate to have access to large numbers of rabbits,but when the myxy or the rhd hits it does come hard.heres hoping.
  8. Took out the straw this morning as she had them scattered throughout.cool enough here now tonight ( Donegal), see how she goes in the morning.
  9. Hi guys, my Jill at 3 yrs is a great worker and has given birth to 9 kits this morning.shes in a bed of shavings, and has been putting them in the corner of the nest box while only the seemingly stronger one's are getting into suckle.throughout the day I've been able to get her out for feeding while I gather the kits from the corner which are cold at this stage into a pile in the nest. This evening I've I've taken my lassies hot water bottle (fleece covered)and stuck it in with them. I'm hoping the one's on the outside will be warm enough to make it through the night and be strong enough to make there way into the jills milk.
  10. absaloutley beautiful, im on the lookout for this cross for a while this side
  11. I'm 43 yrs of age and only ever seen a pinemarten once until about five years ago they started to get spotted all over.last year I had a call from a family who thought their mums cottage looked like it had been overturned inside.checked all possible entry points and no sign.then a light bulb moment and I pulled back a small piece of cardboard that stood up against an open fireplace!!.I set the cage trap in front of the fireplace and sure enough ,a pinemarten next day and another the day after that.thank god his mother was in hospital at the time. And yes I did release them many miles from the house.

  14. yeah seen that a right few years ago. strong looking animals
  15. I too used the shredded paper for a while, but I found in winter it got damp after a bit. I switched to straw then and found it held out longer before being replaced. I wouldn't go with hay ,too dusty,smelly and mites.this time of year in my own run is shavings only. Kenny.
  16. shes a cracking looking wee bitch, pups should make great wee ferreting dogs, atb with the pups.
