Ace has been one of the top producers for a while now and has sired a ton of champions. You should have gotten the DNA tests back first and then posted your suspicions. There's lots of scenarios a pointer could have breed the bitch before or after the AI was done. Alot of people are going to feel pretty stupid if the pups DNA doesn't match Ace.
How are you going to feel if the DNA matches?
I'll feel the same either way about Slick bred dogs. They're overall balls to the wall great birddogs!! Just like Clown, Rusty, Koonas, and some of the other winning lines that have been dragged through the mud on the forum. There's legitimate health issues that need to be addressed with the GSP's like the LD disease. Even that has taken allot of time and testing to narrow it down to certain lines.
I just don't understand why there has been so much speculation and claims made regarding this sire without at least getting the DNA results back and verifying that in fact Ace was the sire
. heck maybe the straws were mislabled when they pulled them and he ended up with some Snake Foot straws. Some poor sap is wondering why his Hall Fame Snakefoot breeding looks like shorthairs
I can't believe that anybody whose been around shorthairs very long was considering registering and trialing the two pups shown in the pictures as GSP's?
Between the DNA test not being finished, the possibility of a genetic issue causing the color, etc., It just seems like allot of people have already made their minds up as to where the problem is (how many of these member's were beaten by a Slick dog?). The Slick Lines are some of the most predominate lines not only in the HB circut, but in all types of competitive venues and hunting kennels around the country. I don't have a dog in this fight but I do appreciate the time and effort it takes to develop a superior line of birddogs. Allot have trainers and kennels have worked hard developing the Slick line so the average hunter like myself could enjoy a dog of this caliber. Seems like we should be doing a little more homework and waiting for the rest of the facts to come out before we start popping off about somebody's line or kennel.
This forum used to be pretty good about not letting members air their dirty laundry or personnel issues about another breeder or certain line of dogs. Hope it stays that way
