I am behind on my posts first Last Aug Gandalf and Meg had a litter of 14 pups. This past Febuary Ember was bred to Gunner and had 11 pups. All are in there new homes and doing great.
April 15-16-17 was the ISCA double Hunt tests on Friday walking field trial on Saturday and Walking Gundog Championship on Sunday.
So on Friday I ran Astro in both Junior hunters with 2 passes, Gandalf ran in 2 master hunter with one pass, we had no birds the first time around. And ran Artemis in one junior with a perfect score and a pass.
Saturday was a very busy day I ran 4 Amatuer dogs 2 derby dogs. The best was the Amatuer stake Orin won (Fiona's Brother ) to finish his Dual Championship making him the 25TH Dual in the history of the breed and the only litter to produce 2 dual champion, Very exciting for Mythodical Irish Setters, there Trainer Jean Webb and Orin's Human Jim Pinkston. with Brother Rory going second for his first field trial points, very exciting for his trainer Jean webb and owner Janet Gomez. I can not espress how happy and greatful we are to both owners and trainer for believing in our dogs to be the beautiful bird dogs they where bred to be.
The Derby stake was just as much fun with Artemis doing a beautiful job finding and pointing birds and Astro not far behind her in his bird work but Artemis's maturity shined through with a win for her and Astro going 3rd. Thank You Jean Webb for training and conditioning my dogs.
In the walking Championship I ran Fiona and Gandalf. Fiona had bird work early on but the decided she did not need to honor her brace mate which made it a short day for her.
Gandalf brought his A game and had 3 beautiful fine and stood through his bracemate pushing his bird up and stealing point to finish second in the walking Gundog Championship.
