You say you don't want to belittle field trials, but that's all you do. Anyone that truly cared about our sport & the beagle breed would be able to recognize & appreciate that field trials have been put in place with the intent to promote a better hunting dog & are doing just that in my opinion. It seems like you want to promote your bloodline over the more successful bloodlines that win field trials by calling our dogs "field trial" hounds & reproducers of " field trial" hounds insinuating that they aren't top quality hunting hounds also. I guess it is okay for you to try to diminish the quality of certain hounds & your bloodline be off limits. I learned as a judge to call them like I see them when it comes to hounds & not worry about people's feelings in order to get it right. I'm sorry if I offended you by describing the patch hounds I've seen & I truly hope they do not represent what you keep & hunt. I hope your hounds are top notch whether you decide to prove it in the field trial arena or not, but downgrading our trials & other beagle bloodlines does not make yours look better & will just bring out bad qualities in people that you would otherwise think highly of.
"Calling all cars, calling all cars, patch is now calling "the entire field trial world negative and detrimental to the hunting breed"!!! "He doesn't care about our sport or the beagle breed and that field trials are makein better hunting dogs, this is my opinion and he's going against it!!!
"He's promoting his bloodline over the winning field trial hounds by calling our hounds field trial hound and reproducers of field trial hounds" If field trials are doing what you state, why in the world would you take offense to someone saying they reproduce more of the same? But anyway, I can't take credit for saying that, that was a quote from Willet Randall a long time ago. He said, " if you want hounds that win in the field trials, buy the from those that are successful in the trials. If you want hounds that hunt, buy from those that hunt their hounds."
Again, please show me where I down graded any trial or line of hounds. I never said the patch line was off limits, but only ask for you to give the number of patch hounds you've seen or maybe a fieldtrialer who bred or trained them. You throw out so many generalities to make things look your way and inject your opinion and comprehension of what is said to twist things, that you have the nerve to suggest I care nothing for the breed or the hunting hound,.... unbelievable!!!

If you were a hound, I'd say you've "blown-up", rattled, babbling, laying false lines, and then as you often have in the trials, the "me-tooer's" come following along.
You even go back to edit your post to fill in the holes you've left. To place the standard you put on hounds too yourself, I'm afraid we'd have to order you up and send ya back to the truck...
