  1. Just sent some over, let me know if you if they don't land Cheers
  2. I'll send you some pics in the morning mate Cheers
  3. I have a Kids Seeland Jacket in a Size 10, with trousers and a fleece in size 8. I think they are called the Eton Range. All In good condition, but have been used so there may be the odd snag etc. I bought these when my lad started beating with me when he was about 7 as I wanted him to be warm and comfortable so he would last the day. They lasted him until he was about 9. They have been absolutely brilliant, but he's now outgrown them so someone else can get some use out of them. I'd like £50 for the lot, pick up from Darlington or I can post for an extra £5 Any questions drop me a line Cheers
  4. My wife volunteers for the Lost Dog Trapping Team. From experience if your dog is spooked and goes into flight mode, there is not a lot you can do to get it back until it settles down. They will live outdoors for months until they hopefully get caught. They stay near water and a food source, usually fruit trees etc. She got into it when a friends dog disappeared while they were on holiday. Lovely family pet turned wild in minutes. We spent a week chasing the dog around our local area until the owner came back and it walked straight up to him like nothing had happened. We cooked BBq's, left scent trails for her to follow, used trail cams to keep track of her, we always knew roughly where she was but we could never get hold of her. We were told they tend to find somewhere relatively quiet as a base, then range out in big triangles. Sure enough when we plotted sightings of her they were all in a perfect triangle. Really odd
  5. Lovely, Thanks all who have pointed me in the right direction.
  6. Thanks for all the help so far. Can i ask how you find all the info. I looked on the Kennel club site but cant see how to join if i'm not a breeder trying to register a puppy ? The Welbury connection is probably quite promising, I've shot at their clay club on a Wednesday so someone there may know the owners of Welburygrange Cartlend. Must say it all gets quite interesting when you start digging. Cheers
  7. Hi All, Thanks for all the input so far. Her Registered Name was 'Emmellodge Tilly'. We got her from Joe Townsend of the Hurworth hunt, and the Sire was one of Les Dixon's of Mountgrace Guns dogs. I'm just curious to know if its possible to see younger siblings rather than the family history. I'll drop Les an email, as I know he kept one of Tilly Sisters, and see if he ever bred from her. I'm not daft enough to think I would get the same dog, there will only ever be one 'Tilly Super Gundog' , but it would just be a nice nod in her direction when we finally feel ready to get another. Thanks to everyone
  8. We lost our beautiful Lab Tilly last week after a short illness. We are all devastated and not looking to get another dog any time soon, but when the time is right we would like to get another which shared some of her bloodline. Is there a way of finding out if any of her sisters had litters and if so if any of their offspring had litters ? Also if they did , is there any way of getting in contact with the owners or breeders ? She was such a big part of the family that i'd like to think that any new dog would have a little bit of Tilly in her Thanks in advance
  9. Another vote for the Grandfors Bruk splitting maul. Makes short work of things
  10. Theres a young lad called Alec Steel who started out on Youtube but now has a show on History. He's pretty good too
  11. I detest Christmas dinner with a passion. All the fuss and stress means that no one really get to enjoy any of it. If there is the slightest problem, it get blown out of all proportion and arguments ensue. Every year without fail I end up sat there at 6pm wishing I could just go home. I thought this year was going to be different. I thought we were at home, just me , the Mrs and my two kids. We were going to have pork pies and snacks and nibbles all day. Basically wanted to just suit ourselves. Since found out the wife's parents have played the 'Your Grandma could be dead next year' card so now we all have to traipse round there. I dread it every year. Bloody hate Christmas day , but boxing day I get out shooting with the Boy and my dog, Love it !!

    Mini One

    Chaps, Not shooting related but ive been offered a Mini One for decent money to replace my about knackerd Ford Focus. The car is only really used to get me 3 hrs down the M1 and back once a week. It needs to last a year tops. Basically like the Focus, it will be used, abused then scrapped. Question is, what are these like on long runs. Will it be a nightmare 6 hrs stuck in a tin box, or are these more like a proper car to drive ? Will it be revving itself to death or will it cruise happily at 80mph ? Its a petrol one, not sure on engine size. Are they economical enough ? Cheers
  14. Nope, but I do have 6 Nations Tickets !!
  15. Another vote for the Stihl easy sharpener. Dead easy to use and really quick. From blunt to sharp in a couple of minutes and you cant really get it wrong
