Ive always had springers but even they seem to be getting smaller so i see no reason why a cocker cant cope unless its rretrieving a really big hare or goose 

I think my old bitch will retrieve canadas off water shes had a good go at bringing a fox back lol never shot a hare and hope i never do so no need to keep a dog to bring them in for myself. I wilk try her with geese soon enough.

I really liked my first springer she was old school and large . my second was smaller and he breeder said as long as there mainly white and go like there arse is on fire , but i thought that was the difference between springers and cockers the size ?.

Colour and size i think mate. Myself i like the springers that almost look like they have a touch of bull lol. Like you say might aswell buy a cocker over a small springer aint ya. Think cockers can be prone to a yap or two also.

I heard the greyhound men talking about Ai and they said it works and  they will test the bitch and know the perfect day of the cycle to do it. Most of them go the natural route because of extra cost for storage etc when trying to run it as a business and some claimed that there was less pups in the litters when Ai was used. Is there a kennel club limit on the sires age?

don't think there is only on bitches, the dogs sister is the bitch pups grand mother, I used a dog from different lines over her and then another over her doughter to get the young bitch both dogs had very little pedigree wise in common with the bitches and both very good dogs, to cross my dog's blood back in would be perfect but the bitch has to prove worthy first and there may not be time that's the thought behind a/I otherwise natural all the way.

this is my 14 year old bitch she was a natural from the word go seemed to know what I wanted and almost trained her self, she has a big lump and is losing condition so time is short on a brighter note her great granddaughter who is also chocolate and tan is coming ready to start this season she would not touch a dummy yet retrieves dead cold game like she has been doing it years any one else had one like that.
