  1. I'm not speculating but we had most of our dogs sheeting all over the place for 5 days and my Dad's dogs vomiting all over for 3 or 4 days at the same time a bunch of us came down with illness and half of us tested positive. Makes you think
  2. I don't think Fergie will see us lift a trophy again
  3. Normally I wouldn't mind the travel it's just me temporary circumstances make it a bit awkward at the mo I would say I was more hoping to just not waste people's time saying I've got one in Cornwall. I don't have Facebook so I'd have to get someone else to look. I guess I was hoping someone on here might give me another option to a bull greyhound because locally that usually with saluki as well is all that seems to be around but I've found the joy in the smaller lurchers
  4. Evening men, I don't suppose anyone could help me out with finding a lurcher bitch pup. Am North East England looking for something within a couple of weeks but not fancying travelling miles and miles. I have the option of one to fall back expected to be 24" tts but to be honest was after a one 21" or under to go with my current dog that does a bit everything for me odd lamping mooching ratting on all terrain. Not too picky in breeding more will it do the job but probably more interesting in a little bull x or terrier x rather than a pure runner. I don't want to waste anyones time and any help
  5. They look handy I might give one a try. I find a non-retractable invaluable at times as long as your careful and don't stick it in your leg.
  6. A set of Stanley Tylon is probably the best value for money and they are good tapes. Milwaukee is the dogs dangles at the minute, but you do pay for it. 100% keep that Stanley knife even if you decide to take it apart and repaint it. I struggle to find a Stanley knife worth having these as there's too much safety going on between non-locking and self-retracting I find them a waste of time compared to a proper one.
  7. We do similar on our place, giving all sorts a try and learning as we going. Are you using the pigs and sheep to work the land for you or are they fattening up for the butcher? I have a history with all livestock but growing stuff I just can't find time to learn it. The missus sells fertilised hatching eggs off the chickens which makes a few quid more than eating eggs if you can find a customer base. People go daft for them now since all the covid stuff.
  8. I'm a lurker, just thought I'd throw my piss in the pot today. This is the closest thing I have to social media, came looking for some sense about 10 years ago.... Still don't think I found any
  9. 26 but everyone says I was born the wrong generation. Had an unusual upbringing and spent 99% of my time with other generations, don't get on with mine.
  10. Dunt know off the top of my head so I won't guess and maybe lie
  11. I was surprised how he turned out but Dam was beddy whippet collie and Sire bull grey whippet. Either way he's turning really handy for me on all game
  12. Hi lads I know I'm no regular contributer on this forum so don't necessarily expect much but I'll try anyway. Anyone know of any litters coming up in the North East at reasonable money, after 1 or 2 ratting and mooching Jack Russells to bring on with my other dogs but can't seem to find any with reliable working blood for normal money. Everything is at designer dog prices nowadays even the unproven lurchers fetch crazy numbers. Any help would be appreciated but I know many are in the same boats Cheers Scott
  13. Otter. That's their thing, take a big fish and eat the neck.
  14. Must admit I didn't think it was a problem it was other people making me doubt it. Looks like might be 2 new additions. Which makes 3 this year so far
  15. Wondering if anyone can clarify transport from Northern Ireland to England, we are looking at a couple of pups and wondering where you stand with rabies etc, I keep seeing that you should have it all in order but then contacted a ferry provider in Scotland and they said it was not a requirement and now I'm confused. Just need clarification
  16. Thanks for all the constructive comments like I say it's never been too much of an issue because I just knew they weren't around them but my new dogs coming through are gonna be with me in and out feeding the horses/donkeys, mucking round etc virtually 8 hours a day mixing with various stuff so I'll keep a long lead on for a good while and keep the recall as I always would. I just know my Jack Russell's never understood that bigger animals were dangerous well I'm glad anyway because I'm settled on patterdales... Anything smaller than them they can rag to bits.
  17. I'm very much considering patterdales as my next foray into dogs but still considering my options, I've had Jack Russell's in the past but never bothered introducing them to other animals as it wasn't an issue. Just after some experience from you guys as to whats possible and what to expect both off lead and on lead with daily exposure as I live with my animals. Hoping to be able to avoid a horse/donkey stampede trampling sheep and my latest puppy getting disembowelled by a goat.
  18. So I assume you'd recommend one whether I go .410 or 20.
  19. It's gonna be for getting some birds, rats and rabbits. Bit of snap shooting or decoying etc. Just in and around the stable blocks and relatively close to house. I'm after versatile option, despite having air rifles
  20. Well now I feel totally inadequate with pics like that going around.
  21. Couldn't agree more, that's my excuse to the missus for such a big gun safe. It's gonna be for a few reasons, start introducing the manimals to shots, but mainly for an option when shooting the bunnies and corvids around the stables and relatively close to the house without disturbing everyone, I shoot a lot with air rifles but I like a different sport at times plus the option of snap shooting. I've got the 12 for when I'm doing a proper job but I would like a hushpower it's just now .410 or 20 and I think the 20 is sounding more versatile.
