Re: Run to catch

The dog sitting beside me is the mother of the two tri-colors on each end.The sire of the dog on the right is a half brother to the bluetick.
They are line bred top and bottom and run with a very similar style and ability which makes for a pretty smooth running pack.

Re: Run to catch

Some days it's just hard to figure.You think the running is going to be great.You think the scenting should be perfect and the dogs ought to really roll on a day like this--- and it doesn't happen.They struggle and look terrible. Then you get a day like today.Warmest day we've had in two months,clou...

Re: Run to catch

Had the four girls out yesterday.Don't think the rabbits are breeding here yet but they ran like they were.Had some long,hard, sustained running. They locked on and that cotton tail was as game as any for over an hour--- I've got to call Okie Dog Supply for more tape worm pills. And now you know the...

Re: Run to catch

Here's a pic of Ronnie Farley's young Rooster dog.Litter mate to my Queen female out of Shady Grove's Bombay Slam x Shady Grove's Tn. High Test.
Eleven months old and runs with a "run to catch" attitude and appears to have the tools to get it done.

Lots of rabbits ,great combination of cover and some rolling hills where you could see a lot of the races. We put dow...

What Swampman said. This trial is considered a big deal to win or place at .
Sure wish SOMEONE considered it a big enough deal to let us know how folks did.
Thanks.

Re: Little pack x UBGF

When I moved to Tennessee from New Hampshire 22 years ago I brought 3 beagles with me.They were all of northern New England and Canadian hare breeding and none of them had ever seen or run a cottontail before. They had no trouble jumping cottontails but were running them kind of rough and I felt I w...

Re: Is it tick cold

Moose are dying in the north country in the middle of winter and are covered in ticks.Friend who lives up there told me they have found where the moose have rubbed themselves raw in places cause of the ticks.Doesn't sound like the cold affects that variety anyways.
