  1. Looking for a pure whippet for stud in North Wales. Thanks.
  2. the reason i havent been on for a while is just this. i think i prefer to go out hunting than read this crap. i cover a lot of land in north wales but can't find any pockets that still have lots of rabbits - i do hunt the land quite a lot (lamping at night and hawks, terriers and ferrets in the day - when not in work!) its just that rabbits seem to have disappeared more than ever and not finding many with mixi anyway going to highlands for a mth in december on a mates land where there are still plenty of rabbits thanks anyway
