Len ginger french


Recommended Posts

Len was a character that’s for sure, knew him 30 odd years. He used to make me cringe with some of the things he said. Get on YouTube and look for “ racism at the heythrop Hunt “ the other old boy with the beard in video has passed to now, Danny lough-Scott. When len and Danny hunted together I’d always stop to have a chat, my sides would be splitting laughing at them. RIP to both.

Luke, React Fraggle & "Thats the Terrminatttooorr boy" are some of the dogs that spring to mind, as i think of old Len...

Them red terriers were off Parks Mick, Terminator was out of Ed Reids dogs, React Fraggle (the Waterloo Cup winner) cost him between 14 and 17 grand depending who he was talking too BUT that said, some bloody decent dogs came off him and how else would the average lurcherman put a Cup winning greyhound over their bitch...?

Everything was for sale, every pup had a story behind the litter and liberties were challenged by how his son was in the SAS.

Like Tomo said, Len French would brighten your day. I always enjoyed a chat.

They don't make em like Len anymore...

The arrangement was for the lad from Blackburn,who was picking his pup up from French,to pick ours up and drop them off at a lurcher and terrier show just outside Blackburn,we went to the show and never got our pups.I don,t know the lad but remember the pup he brought back,it ended up with a lass in preston and was later sold in Donny.The postal order we sent was cashed.

I met him quite a few times around the shows etc. Remember him refereeing a fight at Lambourn Lurcher Show (about 1978/79) between John (boy) Stanley and another traveller. During the fight (Stanley was winning easily) a fist came flying out of the crowd and put Ginger flat on his arse..... all hell broke loose and there was a mass brawl...... those were the days....Unfortunately though, it spelt the beginning of the end for Lambourn Show.
