If I wanted one of these pups, I'd pay £500 in a heartbeat !

But it's come to something that we now think £500 is a decent price for a lurcher pup.......I suppose it is when compared to the £1,000's people are paying for crossbreed potlickers like cockerpoos and such.

These coursing dogs have allways sold at a premium, way above "normal" lurcher prices, and lads have been willing to pay.

I don't begrudge what anyone gets for pups, it seems to be a sellers market, but I'm glad there's still people in our game breeding for the sport, not the money.

Cheers.

I remember reading something about ballreagan bob going into the coursing lines, a good number of years ago.  Is he the only greyhound that's been added to these coursing lines then?

Ballyregan Bob lined a pure saluki

You're not wrong mate.  Back in the day, late 70's early 80's, the bigger greyhound races, derby, cesarewich etc, would regularly be on normal tv. Sadly, all gone.

I think so mate 👍 I dont think a greyhound can add nothing to a good coursing bred its going backwards speed isn't an issue 👍

You can tell that a mile off mate. 
 

It costs me £100 to fill my truck up and about £150-200 a corner to put tyres on it.

So I can’t put four new tyres on the truck for the cost of one of those pups ..... the tyres will last a year if I’m lucky but most likely one will go pop within a few months.
