  1. Well I can see no reason whatsoever except for pest control to be running bunnies this early even with a pup the likelihood is it will be milky does your catching therefore not only killing the doe but killing any babies it has or will produce . Also there are a lot naive young rabbits about so if your reasoning is to give a pup a an easy kill or run it is in my mind a false premise as in a couple of months these same rabbits if they survive have become very wise . I ain't even factoring in the ground which at the moment is as hard as concrete and the risk to your dog through foot injuries etc
  2. Well we ain't out of June yet and there lamping the freshly cut fields near me already after the rabbits etc . It ain't pest control or out like that as I still unofficially still have the permission but don't bother with it anymore. No wonder the game is on the bones of its arse .
  3. The if it meant business it would have been through to the bone she is only playing with you comment . Sums him up perfectly makes me cringe just listening to him .
  4. Remember Richard whiteley getting bitten off plummer ferret many moons ago . Also did Jack Hargreaves and Phil drabble do a couple lurcher ferret type programmes years ago . Also Jack's game Remember that one as well . Apart from shooting times or news the only other place you could see lurchers or ferrets etc was exchange and mart .
  5. Always had pups never a problem rescued this lad from dogs home totally different ball game took approx 9 months just to settle . I assume he had been badly beaten as a youngster as even today at 12 yrs old still has a mistrust of men . But he has been a brilliant companion and now his back legs are a bit dodgy and he suffered a bad injury at 4 just kept as a pet . Reason I didn't get another dog as is he to keen on them either so will bide my time . Same as I have always been with the dog when PTS hardest thing you can do but you owe it to comfort it and not leave it in a strange place alon
  6. Funny you should say that I was delivering and a woman at a roundabout had a pure border so it seems nearly went under wheels of the wagon I was driving not to mention a few cars as well .
  7. Loved the small type lurcher x lurcher brilliant for a bit of lamp ferreting bushing working brambles etc 21 to about 23 to the shoulder max was the choice of dog when I was young round were I lived .you just don't see them anymore God knows what went into them but collie whippet dominated the mix . Saw a good George kelly bitch back in the day but it blew up big style ended up suffering with epilepsy even took her on for about 12 months as the previous owner said would I look after her when he went on holiday some bleeding holiday that turned out to be . He was the 2nd owner and the previou
  8. On the subject of the railway spent over 20 years on it as for best consistent money loco wagon or driver money is the best with the latter the best the deal. as for civil or renewal work etc I know plenty lads on decent money but I know far more on garbage agency work as and when required on barely min wage and roasted on the likes of umbrella pay . Which is the biggest con I have ever ever come across .
  9. You do get genet in France were they were introduced. Similar to a cat and slightly related but are related to the mongoose as well . Never seen one but did see and had plenty visits from beech or rock martens . Leave any building unattended and the gits get in .
  10. I assume there would have been some inter marriages down the centuries hence the appearance of some having darker skin . But also it could be argued that some people have a much darker skin complexion to others examples people with very black hair tend to have a darker skin . in reality it could be any number of reasons to be honest .
  11. The comment on there dark skin is due to there ancestors who orginated from northern India .
  12. No doubt he will be laughing from his grave at a topic about himself that's still controversial. I heard firsthand accounts from certain individuals of the down right nasty tricks he pulled so my pennies worth he was best avoided like the plague. His contribution to getting people especially younger folk is not with in doubt but the methods he employed and used and the people he used to elevate himself to positions of privilege if it be writing books or articles are unforgivable in my humble opinion .
  13. Run long ears and red in France as my inlaws had a small holding out there with a few acres . As property was very cheap especially in the rural part of France . I know its illegal to run any sight hound over there on quarry but it was never a problem or did I ever encounter any . Plenty of stuff out there but rabbits are very scarce especially were the inlaws had there property . To be honest I loved the place and spent long periods over there but the lack of bunnies out there was a real eye opener for me . In fact though it's a beautiful place to be I decided not to settle there after I had
  14. it's possible to damage the heart by over exertion just as it is in humans greyhounds especially can suffer from AF IE Irregular heartbeat so running an unfit dog or over worked lurcher . I have adopted two grews wich developed AF and like in humans it can go undected for years so this is more than likely the case in mature dogs and bitches . As for young dogs and bitches don't forget the heart is a muscle and like all muscles expands and contracts when under load and like any form of exercise if not properly warmed up etc can lead to some serious injuries and damage . Just my take on it one
