I'd look at "Sam". My dog "Dutch" is out of Am/Can UKC CH Poplar Forrest Play It Again Sam MH UD RE WCX CDX. Julie Mach of Highvoltage Retrievers did a repeat bredding on him with her bitch Belle's Image of Tradition. Dutch went 5 for 5 in masters. And achieved both his MH and HRCH title by 2 1/2 yrs old. He did this while also being a fulltime guide dog, having over 2500 birds shot over him -- www.goosehuntinginc.com. Dutch is my first and only dog to ever run in hunt tests. He is amateur trained and handled. His brother "Jet" is also a young Master Hunter. I have been over-the-top happy with Dutch. I know Jet's owner is equally happy.
Wow I was reading this thread and realized that girl Belle's Image of Tradition is out of a chocolate girl I bred. Ch Rainbo Listen to your heart. One of those should have kept her pups The Hunts bought her from me and Shannon Stone finished her with 2 majors and a group placement. Wow small world. They intended on getting her JH but their focus changed. Have always tried to breed working retrievers that have correct structure. Thanks for the smile.
I own Jett, MH, one of the Sam/Belle's Tradition pups bred by Julie Mach. Awesome pedigree. 4 CH/MH dogs in the first 6 dogs on the pedigree. Only Belle's Traditon is not at least a CH although she is pointed. Jett is headed to the show ring next week and will be handled by Brian Livingston in order to achieve his CH. We will be breeding his full sister (she only has JH, due to us putting all our energy/funds into Jett) to Rio as soon as our Kaymie comes into season. She was due in December so anytime now. BYW: Belle's Image of Tradition is out of CH Belle Tradition OBroad Reach, MH and CH Rainbo Listen to Your Heart.
I also highly recommend Kerrybrook as well. We have a new girl coming out of Vince this week
Oh, I also have a young Goose girl that is showing wonderful progress and is drop dead gorgeous
[QUOTE=Angie B;1050172]Amy is 22" and I didn't tape Casey but I'm guessing he's 24". Amy is around 55lbs and when I saw Casey he was in the upper 70's.
This dog has a nice top line as well as a gait. His movement was solid and he was in good physical shape. After 2 series, my wife and I both gaited the dog in front of Angie, I also believe Angie took some video, didn't you? He has a good working attitude and personality to boot. We ran along side him in the same MH flight that weekend.

Why do I have to "Press 1" for English?
I have been pondering!! D a n g e r o u s!! ha!!
Angie and cross bench/field breeders, what traits are you achieving using bench labradors in working/field dogs?
Angie, from memory and correct if I am wrong..you were once a dairy farmer. From my limited experience speaking to dairy farmers they may cross Jerseys and Friesians to obtain better quality and quantity.
After you have a bench and AKC hunt test champion.....who do you breed to .........show or field?
Are there multiple generations of SH & MH?
Field trial labradors, the wind beneath my wings,
sometimes poop under my boots.
