stitched leather collars

When one of my dogs get done with school and reaches the point where thay are staunch on birds, back on sight or command and finish force breaking to retrieve I get them a nice leather collar. I know the coated nylon collars are more practical but you can call it a quirk on my part. My problem is fi...

One of my setters will tree squirrels. When he was a puppy he caught one in the yard and it bit him on the nose. He now hates them with a passion. I like to eat squirrels so when he trees one I shoot it out. He will even chop a time or two when he first sits down on a tree. He treed one in a NSTRA t...

White/Black Shorthairs

You guys fill me in on these white and black shorthairs. Do they come from certain bloodlines or do they show up from time to time along with the liver? I saw on run this past winter and he was a bird finding machine and he looked good doing it.

The reasons people choose the breeds they do could go on forever. Those reasons don't have to make sense to anyone but you.

I think I qualify as a responsible breeder but have never bred a female that old for their first time. I will rephrase my question.

Waht are the risks associated with breeding a seven year old setter female for her first time?

Would you breed a 7 year old female that has never been bred before?

She is healthy (still a good all day hunter) and has always had regular cycles.

If you use creamed corn put that in before the buttermilk or your mix will be too thin. Put your buttermilk in last and just enough to get a stiff batter.
