Question 2----Name some offspring that turned out better than the big named stud and dominate mother they were out of???
A buddy and I spoke on the phone the other night and could not name 10 pups (off the top of our head) that turned out better than their parents. Now I’m not talking about just a breeding between two mediocre or average rabbit dogs but rather an extra nice sire and female. When some of the best out there (male and female) are bred it seems the offspring seldom turn out to be 80% of what their parent are. I’m Not saying the offspring are bad but rather the talent level is Not that of their parents (or ever will be). I’ve ran with and judged Field Champion’s, World hunt Winners, State Champions and seldom do I see offspring that turn out better than their parents.

Depends also on who breeds to the studs.

gwyoung wrote:T LEE, I am not sure I am understanding your question correctly. Is your question ; Are there stud dogs out there producing or have produced better dogs than what they are? If so the answer is yes, there are thousands of examples. You Mentioned Ranger Dan, was he not better than his sire, East Coast trimmer, was he not better than his Sire, Dingus McCrae was he not better than his Sire, How about Gay Baker, Nomad's Buckshot Mr. Bill, The list is endless. There are a lot of kennels which get better every year they must be producing dogs better than what they have had.
