Beagles - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

VERONICA Bradley rang me to let me know she has lost Ch Dufosee Hyperion. He was very much Ken’s boy and so he was special. His illness was something of a shock as he had just been unwell and Veronica thought she would come back from the vets with some tablets and that would deal with the problem. Perry never left the ...

Beagles - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

THE NORTHERN and Midland Counties BC held its open show at Shirland. Judge Kelly Nash had an excellent entry to go over, which I’m sure made her long journey from Dorset worthwhile. BIS went to Marion Hunt and Jo Norris’ Shercroft Apollo. RBIS went to Claire Jones’ homebred Clairdale Damia who is not long o...

OUR MEET was held at Oat Hill Farm, Enstone, Oxon by the kind invitation of Frank Henderson. This farmland is used to supply haylage (a lightly pickled way of storing grass rather than drying it as hay) for the racehorses in Newmarket, so generally we are able to run the hounds on established lays although today we did have ...

I RECEIVED an email from Neil Stevens who was wearing his Devon and Cornwall secretary’s hat, he tells me that the club is updating their judges lists. The club is having a judges subcommittee meeting in April, so anyone wanting a form can contact Neil directly or download one from the DC&SWBC website. I discussed ...

AFTER two weeks of frost and cold it was lovely to be invited to hold a meet at Court Farm, Greens Norton, near Towcester by Richard Jefferies. We were lucky with the weather as the breeze was gentle and mild with a light rain. The land that we were using was short cropped grass, free from mud except in the gateways.  ...

WEEKDAYS aren’t the easiest days to travel to shows but we were on the first day of Manchester’s four day ‘Northern Classic’ and exhibitors made a good entry for respected breed specialist and all rounder Andrew Brace. As you all know Andrew had the previous breed record holder Ch Too Darn Hot for Tra...

Beagles - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

I HOPE the weather is good for those travelling to Manchester where Andrew Brace has drawn an excellent entry. I can remember travelling to Manchester by coach when it was held at Belle View, Manchester. There was a funfair and circus next door if I remember correctly. It was quite dark and dusty and like most indoor shows t...

Beagles - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

Beagles - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

WE HAD superb weather for our second meet of the season held at Ashmere Farm in Sole Street, Kent on Jan 8 with the permission of Mrs French and the Bolebrook Beagles. It was dry over head with a gentle, mild breeze although the arable land we were using had quite sticky soil so the boots did get a bit heavy as the day progr...

Beagles - week 2Updated : 06/01/2017

THE YEAR started on another sad note. Jill Peak has let me know that June and Eric Middleton (Gaytail Beagles) have died. Eric died ten days before June was found dead, they had moved to Cyprus some 19 years ago. They bred the championship BIS winner Ch G Brigand who won this award at City of Birmingham in the mid 60’s...

Beagles - week 1Updated : 28/12/2016

I HOPE everyone had a great festive break and now we are back to a new year and new promise, one such new promise came in the shape of Claire Tanner’s new puppy Felinoak Baileys n Ice, who won BP and PG1 under Helen Wayman and then went one further under our own breed specialist Jill Peak who awarded her RBPIS – ...

Beagles - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

I HOPE everyone had a great Christmas and have had enough turkey.      Sally Kimber was first off the mark for an event in 2017 with details of the Southern Counties Beagle Club’s half day Beagle appreciation seminar on April 22 at Elstead Village Halls, Surrey. The speaker will be Pat Sutton who...

Beagles - week 51Updated : 15/12/2016

LKA PRODUCED a great entry for Noreen Harris (Bonnymead) from Australia who has judged in the UK on several occasions. BCC and BOB and the eventual winner of the hound group under Editha Newton was Jill Peak and Mrs Kristopha’s Ch Bayard Forgetmeknot, winning her 40th CC.      DCC was a first for...

IT HAS become a tradition for the first meet of the season to be held in Dauntsey, Wiltshire at the invitation of Sheila Wade at Smiths Farm Barn and Theresa Chapman at Dauntsey Lodge Farm. We are grateful to be able to use Sheila’s tea room to keep warm while all the Beagles are tested with their stays and recalls bef...

Beagles - week 50Updated : 12/12/2016

I MUST firstly apologise to David Craig as my results sources gave me incorrect information. RBB under Mark Ord at the BC open show was his Davricard Scilla, who was continuing her run of success.      Serena Parker had a great day at Southport and Birkdale where Serenaker Daydream won BP under Andrea ...

Beagles - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

THE BC held its open show at Cirencester and the judge elect was none other than my fellow Geordie, Mark Ord (Marandee Afghans and Border Terriers). I have known Mark for many years and he is a real dog man who like myself was mentored by some of the great north east breeders and all rounders. I know he was really looking fo...

Beagles - week 47Updated : 17/11/2016

A LITTLE break from shows this week, hopefully you and your hounds have all enjoyed the unseasonably mild conditions and the autumnal colours?      I had an email from Debbie Taylor in her role as secretary of West Mercia BC who asked me to remind folks that the useful West Mercia calendar 2017 is avai...

Beagles - week 46Updated : 10/11/2016

THE WEEKEND of West Mercia was a busy one for some as the previous day was the Eukanuba champion and Pup of the Year finals. Mel Spavin won third place in Pup of the Year with Peter Piper. We had three Beagles qualified Matt Wenman’s Dialynne Miss Brodie and Pat Sutton’s Rossut Endeavoured, handled by Sally Prece...
