Re: Crooked legs. Did I breed it into my dogs?

Evidently you do like it very much. You seem to read ALL my posts. So glad you like them but if not and merely being sarcastic skip over them as you do evidently know my handle on here as well.

Re: Crooked legs. Did I breed it into my dogs?

AYE, so we are back to what man wants rather than what mother nature wants AND the reason for this thread being "crooked legs, did I do that?" Digressing back would then better the animal for it's existence here on earth BUT not to each individual man's liking. I remember many, many years ago that t...

Re: Crooked legs. Did I breed it into my dogs?

MAN crafted the many canine breeds and in doing so man did it with HIS personal opinion of what was good, better, average and the best. In nature there is but one judge of that and it is called survival of the fittest and the style of getting fed is secondary to the fact that without being able to t...

Re: Crooked legs. Did I breed it into my dogs?

I find all this breeding stuff really fascinating and especially when many propose to better the breed(s). I often wonder how MAN can do that when he doesn't have the slightest idea of all the genes are being carried by what dog. Minus a DNA profile of every dog bred in a line, MAN's captivity is an...

Re: Round and round she goes...

Nice video's an the last one was GREAT! Looks like those 7 month old pups were job all around that deer. I don't know where that was but it looked like some of the mine property we run on with that THICK Sericia grass. It makes it very difficult to see the hounds much, let alone the rabbit. I highly...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

Adam would go on road trips up north to buy FC, IFC studs that were in their latter days and bring them south to stud out to the locals. Those guys that trialed, finished and bred those hounds would sell them while they still had a little life left in them to recoup and move them out of the area to...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

I don't know who JJWI is but evidently you think you know me or my dogs. I knew Adam Seger and his dogs long before he ever got Green Bay Shooter. He knew what I was hunting because he worked some young dogs and started pups for us in his pen and asked me what they were out of. Seems some miss the p...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

Well we have had totally different experiences with "grade" dogs then. I can honestly say I have ever seen one that I would consistently jump and circle a rabbit. Don't get me wrong, there are probably some outstanding grade dogs out there. Problem I am seeing, especially lately, is a lot of people...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

I understood it but do not think you understood my point. I have had rabbit/coon dogs for many years prior to what we have now, MOSTLY GRADE or at least without papers and always had dogs that could circle a rabbit. If not we would not have owned and fed them. They were tools used in our generation ...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

When we bought our first dog from this line I had NO CLUE what the blood lines behind the dog were, only that it was AKC registered. We tried the dog, liked it very much, bought her and got a bonus as she was pregnant. JUST being hunters we didn't care about the papers but when she had pups and we f...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

Being a rabbit hunter that has followed hounds for about 55 years I am of the opinion that most hunters I know and have known put little stock in field trials as the determining factor of what they own, hunt and breed. I am NOT a breeder but have had liters over the years when I need to replace old ...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

I agree shady and mybeagles. I was around 60 years ago following rabbit hounds and although my dad and grandparents as well as uncles have passed on there are still some of us from those good ole days still hunting behind beagles. ALL of us from the old family use one dog from way back then as our m...

Re: Field Trial Ponderings

I agree mybeagles. In the grand scheme of my life these beagles are pretty close to bottom of the priority for me which makes them a hobby not a way of life. When I was a kid and our family depended on game to augment the dinner table they higher up on the priority list BUT never did I ever notice m...
