Yes rich that's right.. 

How about pure salukis mate, when you've been to the middle east did you see any of the racing as it's huge there now isn't it n big money, did you see any difference in smoothes n feathered as regards to performance, seems to be more smooths than feathered on the clips that iv seen? Or is that just coincidence due the region thing. 

I had pure Salukis when I lived there, but never seen any of the racing.

We flew loads of gazelle "droppers" in from Africa for them to course but sadly never got invited.

A friend of my daughter, Sheik Hamad Guhnaim, of " Hounds of Arabia" fame, invited me to his kennels in Abu Dhabi and his Falconry Mews in Dubai, and he had a mixture of smooth and feathered and I asked him which he preferred, he said coat or colour didn't matter, it was breeding and performance that counted.

In reply to Gene, as I said, I never seen any racing, but I know some owners bred Greyhound into the saluki racers to increase speed, but there was a massive pushback and they brought in DNA testing to make sure it was only pure bred Salukis that raced, but I don't know how successful it was .

As they say "money talks" and there's an awful lot of money out there ! 😂

Cheers.

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.
