Sounds right Glyn, I stand corrected.

I knew Brian had met Breay, I've been present on a couple of his talk nights years ago. Though i thought he went up to meet him and Brian's terrier history did change from talk to talk.... ?

Maybe its Park i'm getting confused with?

Yes i Would think it was J.Park and no doubt countless others unknown to us all , but not Brian he told me it was just easier to go elsewhere for the blood , he told me most of F.Bucks terriers had  a price

That old Bucks Otter Hounds print is one of my absolute favourite otter hunting prints. They were originally produced as a fund raiser for the B.O.H. and if my memory serves me right were at that time

That will upset many a Nuttalite Glyn .

Well I'm a nuttallalite myself tried to keep them right these 30 odd years but Brian told me this himself in a taped interview I did in 2000 there been some bullshit written since about him hunting with Breay but it never happened

I’m not doubting you mate but many a yard was based on what Buck supposedly  brought to the mix and many a terrier was sold to that effect .Nuttal was a fickle man when it came to telling the truth I found ,having been told several scenarios for same dog .If he truly didn’t know I’d rather he said but to tell lies put him down there with a few more I’ve come across .Ive had to rewrite my whole ped  he once drew up for me due to your good self a while back .

Rather trust you than him .

The one thing that always grinds me is the stamp of all of the fell legends of yesteryear, just look at the old pictures of the terriers that made their names, and look at the type that destroyed that name........no resemblance

      Hello lads, merry Christmas and all that. I’ve got a terrier in my kennels that starting to test my patience. 
      Great dog, keen as mustard and all that but time and time again I’ve broken through to her steadily baying away only to find she’s sat with something mid tube on one occasion I broke though and there was nothing there however last week I said to myself if I break through I’ll clear the tubes up and pop her back in to make sure it isn’t my fault rather than blame her. Lo and behold it was sat about a meter back from the open end of the tube and eventually bolted itself - Happy says, a nice morning out (I only dig on my own and keep it private).
      However today we popped over to seasoned place, in she went, which was an incredibly large earth with multiple holes spanning across a bracken bank. Straight away she sat at 2.4 baying away well, too many entrances to net I kept an eye out for the bolt but nothing was to be seen. For the next hour maybe two she barley surfaced and worked the entire earth sitting and baying on occasion but shortly moving on and covering a great distance. Eventually on one occasion when she popped out, nose down looking for the next way in I picked her up and sat her back in the truck as I didn’t want to be sat there for another hour trying to get a mark. 
      my question is simple, what am I doing wrong? Or is the bitch at fault for not working her quarry to a stop end and staying. She isn’t massively experienced however for what’s she’s done I’ve found she’s intelligent and very safe often comes away without a mark. Please don’t recommend PTS or moving her on, I understand many terriermen wouldn’t tolerate this however for the times I have dug to her successfully it has been a great pleasure. I’ve had a conversation with a lad local to me and his response was “she’s not hard enough to hold them” which made me think one man’s preference may not be another’s. 
      all the best & happy new year

      Morning lads,
      so I’ve always had black fell terriers and work them to ground. But for a few years I’ve noticed people starting work slightly broken coated very short coupled terriers that are little savages. I never really get a clear answer to what’s in them but I really like the look of them.
      one chap told me he’d crossed his Sealyham with a Russel and it turned out a good little worker. Just wondering if anyone else has had any experience with this breeding specifically for earth work?

      Good evening Gents,
      Using this platform again as I find it a great way to reach out into a pool of knowledge and great experience.
      Now I don’t work my terriers to hounds here in Ireland, but more than often will find myself having a wonder about my permission and trying the terriers in some common spots. However, I have noticed I’ve drawn more blank days than good and wanted to know what those who don’t work terriers under hounds provide consistent work for their own, how do you go about your day out to guarantee an earth will be occupied and how do you feel about drawing blank days.
      I worry by doing so my terriers will go flat and maybe cause a negative impact on their careers as working terriers. 
      Go stead,
