I've been to Oz a few times, and one time I asked on Ozziedoggers, ( a hunting site, not a perverts site !😂!), if anyone would like to take an old cantankerous, pommy out hunting. I was inundated with offers and went down there for three months during our summer, their winter, and went hunting with some top lads.

It was all foxes, they weren't interested in hares. Had a great time with lurcher lads, Terrier lads and mounted fox hunts.

No mate, I'm a home bird these days, but I'm a bit jealous of my missus who went north of the Arctic circle and did a bit of husky mushing, I'd like to have a go at that; She still likes to travel, but I can't be bothered with the hassle, I've done more travel than most could dream of !IMG_1295.JPG.19636c6eaccb6abbdd9d3510e1548323.JPG

I spoke to an old pal of mine today, who took me out a few years ago to run some different quarry with the old deer x, and we might have a day or night out next season to test this big pup I've got now. 

We'll see, but I'm 70 now, and although the spirit may be willing, the heart may be weak ! 😂 ! But I'm not ready to hang up the slip yet 👍

Cheers.

Really, so you'd saluki if you were thinking of crossing with non sighthound blood, they wouldn't have the pace.

A lot say putting a pure saluki to line bred saluki lurcher increases the speed ,and are faster than a first cross.

I am reading the book from Terence Clark about Salukis at the moment and in there he has some stunning pictures of smooth salukis. They look more like a salxgrey. Crossing something like that with a collie/kelpie would be really interesting to see. I would imagine that they would be fast enough for almost anything and would have stamina to spare.


I would love to go to the source and getting one of these smooths over here, since I really do not dig the feathering…

Nice to hear, from what I hear to much inbreeding going on within the coursing breds, but thats personal preference.

I would rather go back to the source, if possible…

Probably easier said than done…to be fair, so far I am just toying with the idea. So maybe it is easier than I think.

the coursing breds are naturals mate very good killers the pures are good for an outcross but they want linebreeding there is that many lines from same family a dogs there a massive choice really
