I built some hound kennels for Ian Porter and while working there went to the trails with him one day. I have been interested ever since.
About 30 years. I had my first hound in 1985, he was called Motown.
Desire is undoubtedly the best, but Motown was a good hound, I wish we had him now, he would’ve won a lot more trails.
Hartsop Magic. If she got a lead and got wrong she would soon get back to the front and pull away again.
I used to love Martindale. It was a nice little valley and was a good seeing trail. Newlines is my favourite venue of today. The locals all turn out and it is always a friendly meeting with a good atmosphere.
Winning the Bitch Produce with Desire and also winning Open Restricted on May Day in 2007 with Dempsey, that was our first big trail win.
Westgate Ruby – she must throw some good pups!
Ike Dixon – good crack and a genuine nice fella.
