  1. Yes and surely if any one is serious about a pup they can phone the owner. Happy to talk to anyone about my dog if they pm me their number. As I said this is not my litter and the owner is not on here.
  2. Give him a ring with any questions is best geordieh
  3. Price for these pups is- dogs £650 and bitches £700
  4. Sorry, don't know the price as not my pups, just giving people a heads up. I will find out and report back ASAP. MM
  5. Just a heads up for anyone looking for a dog for the marsh. A fellow wildfowler brought his bitch to my stud dog for mating. She is a very big strong and athletic bitch which would put a lot of modern dogs to shame. She is mostly keeper and working dog breeding with some good old ft lines back in her pedigree. My dog it pure ft breeding sired by mediterian blue. He is however a real throw back. He is a big dog (36 kg lean) with a very thick coat. He is also very athletic for his size as is the bitch. The dog is a wildfowling dog through and through but also picks up on comercial shoots and has won the only test we have entered. I don't want to brag my dog up, just trying to give an idea of the type he is, and how the pups may turn out. My dog was the stud and so stand to gain nothing from this post except getting some good pups a home working on the marsh. Pupps will be ready end of December and any info required phone richard 07951461557, he dosent do much with computers and dosent mind his number on here. Pups are in swansea. Hope this helps someone and all the best with the season. MM
  6. I would be inclined to believe these markings go back to the St. John's water dog, which was more often than not marked with white on the chest and feet. Both my dark yellow lab bitches have white patches on the chest ( mother and daughter) and the pup has white tips on the toes of two paws, hence her name- tiptoe. White has been more easily hidden in yellow lines as it is not noticed so easy in a light yellow dog, but stands out on a black or dark yellow, these pups were probably culled in past times but now obviously sell for more as they are 'rare'.
  7. Love my side by sides- william ford 3" 1200 bar magnum, aya no3 magnum and an aya yeoman. Thumbs up to a side by side section
  8. Shot a good range wigeon this morning with a aya number 3 magnum and eley lightning steel 36g 3. Gun is choked 1/4 and 1/2. Just don't like seeing the gun covered in mud but prefer using it to an auto. Have also got a william ford 1200 bar 3". It is tightly choke and have not put steel through it yet, was thinking about gamebore super steel 32 size 4's. Anyone shot them through older tight choke guns?
  9. Think that may invalidate the guarantee but glad thy held up! Sounds like a good workout though
  10. Thanks red dot, glad you liked them
  11. I make them out of 9mm military utility rope, it's very strong with a slight stretch, handy as a shock absorber if the dog hits the end. I use decorative knot work to attach the stainless steel rings and form the hand loop. They also have a rubber stopper that slides to prevent the slip loop opening. I have used all sorts of materials over the years from spliced nylon to braided para cord. I have found my current design to be the most suitable to date. I'll try and post a picture if I can.
  12. If you like it you can buy another two then
  13. Hi red dot. I make slip leads and if you pm your address I will send you one to see if you like. Scott
  14. I've got same gun with same chokes. I have used 42g tungsten matrix, and 36g number 3 steel. Not proofed for it but it's a strong gun in good condition so I use it. Used Ely lightning and gamebore mammoth
  15. It will be fine carl, just don't forget to be in early for Wayne in the morning.
