few pics of her 

Few pics a the mongrel👍

Mine is turning out as I had hoped, Comes with me everywhere, she can go all day, But just lays quietly if there’s not much going on, Strong desire to work and hunt, can be a bit nervy sometimes

Can’t seem to find the original thread if jigsaws about this litter, so I’ll stick this here, 

 

season started now, temps have dropped, wind an rain have made appearance, my bitch was a tad confused tbh, no doubts about it, so much drive, an so much herding genes had her running about like a headless chicken 😂 upped the work load a bit( say upped but it’s just more little trips than all nighters) 

she doing well now, settled an started sussing out the game, been out 3 times this week an a bit ferreting ( which she is doing well at, when she steadys up a bit) I’m sat here typing this as my lad an his mate have the bitch out for a few spins, I been relegated to the car an only good enough to be driver these days 😂it’s the holidays an they mad keen what can I say😂

 

anyways feel like a broken record but still very happy with the young bitch, she doing all I want an more, joy to have around will make a decent bitch at this rate hopefully 😁

 

just a little update an I’ll get a few pics of her when the lads get back to motor 👍

Great stuff

Its when a dog is at it best mooching working for its catch or chase 

I'm blessed to live where I live, get to see this game every other day and starts straight out the back gate, got to admit it is fun to watch when in range to see it.

Sport is exactly what we having mate, not the fattest or best at turning bit a long way to do be a proper working dog aswell an obviously a halfx so never gonna be a speed demon turning on sixpences but I knew what I was getting, it’s why I got it😁 but drive is there, willing to learn is there so we will keep having some sport with her an see how we get on, she still tired tonight tho so she staying in 👍

just back from a local quarry with the dogs,we went out back roads and avoided all the faster routes,their having plenty of galloping and stuff but not rabbiting, they were bred soley for ferreting and a bit of gun fun,and anything else will be a plus,the dog pup i have i think is a bit of a fast lad,and the bitch isnt too bad,she had one very long run a few weeks back on a bolted rabbit and couldnt get in to it once it hit open ground, but in amongst the trees and ditch she came close a few times ..im a bit pissed off tbh i cant get out and see how the dog goes,their both fine with the ferrets and are reasonably steady when out ,be nice to tune em in and have a wander regular like ...the one concern is their not seeing any sheep at the minute and how they react in amongst them in the future makes me anxious

Don’t fcuking mention sheep to me ever again 😡😂😂

 

mine was ace mate the perfect pup, showed her few bits end last season an she was perfect. Roll through summer she at my side 24/7 nearly an through all sorts of stock doing all sort of jobs. Started this season when a mate asked me to go through an have a shine on his small farm as he wanted to see her, let’s say she showed more interest in the sheep than the rabbits, I wanted to die mate🤯 am I bet you awoke that night with burning ears 😂 had a chat with dog to remind her the house rules an the very next morning drive out to meet me same mate on same land, him an wife ( who was out to see The comedy show☹️😂) an me set out reminding the cnut all way through yard an farm that mutton was was a no no, started ferreting an after 10 mins she thought fcuk this am hopped the fence, I couldn’t have been angrier 😂 bitch knew an thought what’s your proble am wouldn’t come back for 10 mins till I’d had a brew an mellowed 😂 jumped in back motor as if nowt happened ffs, so I gave her a few weeks away from stock all together, called in a favour an done some rabbiting on arable land, lamped her till she was tired then run her through sheep again an she knows score now ( for now 😂

 

i honestly think that much drive am half wanting to run an kill another half wanting to herd stock it’s confusing when the 2 meet, but it deffo summat to watch as if I hadn’t been with a mate who owned the sheep an actually saw funny side as no harm done really, could have went diff tho am my reaction to it could have panned out diff, I reckon if I’d have her a hiding or even a shock collar it would have affected her, whereas just a change of land am taking the stock out picture until the job clicked seemed to have worked for us👍

my dog pups very excitable ,but the bitch is driven  (the dog hasnt seen a rabbit yet so is not switched on at all) and when i did show her sheep,she was a bit twitchy , i had to keep reminding her that mutton wasnt part of the plan, i was not relaxed at all with her tbh, and i was determined to sort it,but the 1st lock down came, work is mental the whole time, 6 days a week and i cant get a day off to work with her.hopefully over x mass i can cram a lot in  lol if i have the energy
