    Keep getting sent to another site as well. This sucks.
  2. If you refer back to most of my posts, I clearly...

    If you refer back to most of my posts, I clearly state there is a lack of proven performance in silvers. There's 1 MH, a few JH or SHR. This does not prove that they are quality retrievers. This is...
  3. There's an underlying genetic reason for the red...

    There's an underlying genetic reason for the red to show up on a yellow. Red is considered yellow just like silver is considered chocolate. Just because we don't have the "red" gene identified, we...

    What's Breck right about Windy? That having an advanced degree in genetics makes me "full of it" simply because I'm offering a different opinion? Way to keep it classy.
  5. I was just the manager and did not make decisions...

    I was just the manager and did not make decisions on who was bred. But I agree, the stallion owner has a responsibility, especially when it comes to improving the breed.

    Not at all apple to...

    Sharon, I agree with several points you made. In my time working as a horse breeder there were certainly clients who had horses they bred to our studs that did not enhance the breed. Whether the...

    Yes, but I want to be producing top notch silver litters NOW! 4-5 years will go by in a flash, i know, but I'm impatient and want to see the end result of my selective breeding decisions. It's hard...

    Well compare the number of blacks and yellows on the lab puppy page and then look for chocolates. I'm not saying chocolate is as exotic as silver, but yellow's been around 30 years longer than...

    haha the only reason I've gotten so into it is because I actually do want to. It's the nerd in me that wants a good genetic challenge and to produce something one of a kind. I've looked at so many...
  10. Well, why do chocolates sell faster and at higher...

    Well, why do chocolates sell faster and at higher prices than better bred blacks? It's pretty. It's unique. It's exotic. That won't change. Why does a French Bulldog sell for $3,000-$10,000 when it...
  11. Seriously? An entire new breed because of one...

    Seriously? An entire new breed because of one gene? Then the chocolate and black labs can be one breed since it's the same gene but the yellow has to be a different breed because it's not on the B...
  12. Oh I completely agree. It's disheartening to look...

    Oh I completely agree. It's disheartening to look thru 100 silver lab pedigrees and never find more than a SHR or JH in 3 or 4 generations. The dilute breeders are going to have to step up or those...
  13. I don't know. But what's the difference between...

    I don't know. But what's the difference between breeding for a chocolate vs breeding for a yellow or a silver. It's just one gene. I could argue that EIC is more prevalent in dogs that carry the...

    Umm, it's not a lie. A silver is a chocolate. There's E_bbdd. The bb in there is, in fact, chocolate. A charcoal is black. It's genotype is E_B_dd. A champagne is yellow ee__dd. So there's no lie,...

    I'm on my husbands account but my name is Natasha Hall and I wanted to add my 2 cents. A little background on me before I get to my point. I have a B.S. and M.S. in Animal Science with an emphasis on...

    My understanding was they cancelled it due to lack of help, not flooding, not drought, not lack of funding, not lack of birds. Don't tell me you can't find boy scouts, girl scouts, ROTC, NHS members,...

    Couldn't have said it better HANG HIM HIGH and let him never see the sky he took advantage of again. He had a job every duck hunter dreams of and he screwed the pooch royally.
