  1. I drive a pioneer 4 seater - absolutely fantastic bit of kit.
  2. I don’t have direct experience of the quadrzilla, but I do drive a SBS quite a lot and on some pretty challenging terrain. I was genuinely surprised how well it performs in 2wd off road. If I may make a suggestion, if you went for one of these, I personally, I’d hold back on putting a winch on it until.you’ve see how it performs on your ground - you ,any well be pleasantly surprised and able to save yourself a few quid.
  3. Good curry goat is superb. Goat meat in general really tasty, braised leg with butter beans and chorizo is to die for. I recall talking to the owner of the farm we get our goat meat from and she was saying that she was always glad when people bought goat for the first time, but was often disappointed that it was usually for curry goat and not a recipe that let the meat flavour speak for,itself.
  4. You're not hijacking at all mate - it's nice to know other people have a similar mind set. And a lovely gesture RE helping Mel out. Mel, you've been reprieved. After a couple of phone calls with a friend last night, both he and his mum would both like a pup so now they are all spoken for. I'm really relieved that all are going to friends or family of friends too. Thanks for the interest. And Mel, if you find yourself up this neck of the woods, I'm sure our new pup Dolly, would be more than happy to go for a wander with you and a gun.
  5. I'm sorry to hear that - they leave a huge hole in your life don't they.
  6. Thanks Mel. We had always planned on having a litter when mum got to 6 years old, I must admit that we did get a bit of flack from a couple of people about 'jumping on the covid bandwagon' but it was just the way the timing worked out. I must admit - he does look a little bit grumpy in that pic - must be having a bad day 😀
  7. Hi, yes it’s just boys only now.
  8. We had a litter of 6 x working cocker pups on June 14th 3 x golden & 3 x chocolate. Both mum and dad are good working stock and mum is also a lovely family pet with a beautiful nature. The main reason for having a litter was because mum is such a nice natured dog I wanted to carry her line on with one of her pups for myself. They are all KC registered - just waiting for the paperwork to come through. The pups are all legally docked and will be vaccinated (1st shot) and microchipped by the time they are ready to leave home on or after August 9th. We've currently got 2 x golden dogs and 1 x chocolate dog looking for a new home. All of the pups are currently still with mum and are being socialised in a family home with other pets and kids. I'm looking for £1100 to PW members. If you're interested, please get in touch and i can arrange more pics, a chat or even a visit if you are local. Cheers Jonty
  9. I’ve just come to a similar arrangement. I’ve just had my cocker bitch mated with a stud dog and we’ve agreed the price of a pup for the fee. However, the owner did say that he wanted to wait until my bitch had whelped as if she only had a couple of pups he didn’t feel it would be fair to take the whole fee - I couldn’t see fairer than that.
  10. Thank you very much 👍
  11. There's some cracking looking food there mate! Could I ask what is it that you've used for the food grating/grill in the offset cook chamber. I'm looking to make something similar and have been looking at different grill options - yours looks spot on.
  12. Good call mate. I like to try and have a go at new projects but after I costed up the flue, register plate, building regs and how long it would take me to install, it worked out far more cost effective, and in my eyes logical, to get someone in. I used a local chimney sweep firm and they did an excellent job in probably 1/4 of the time it would’ve taken me to do.
  13. Just reiterating what ditchy says - you need to really look,at your house insurance. If you do it under the radar of building regs and hetas certificates, you could be scuopered if you need to make a claim for something fire related down the line.
  14. An ex girlfriend's grandmother lived in the same street as Bobby and Jack when they were young lads, I always smile when I remember her telling me ''that Bobby was a canny lad - he'd do anything for you, but that wee Jackie was a proper little b88888d''😀 Sounded even funnier coming from a little sweet 75 year old grandma
  15. It’s really easy mate, if you need any pointers with the cure drop me a message and I’d be happy to help. Although, from your amazing bacon thread, I suspect you’ve got that sussed.
