So it wasn't like Lew read a couple of books and talked to few folks he was with a tough dedicated bunch of everyday trainers.

    First of all to say that Jim Pickering has "done fairly well with a Lab" is an understatement. Making an FC AFC and competing in the National Open is a little more than doing fairly well. I've seen him on Facebook but no longer on this site. He had some wonderful dogs and great breedings during his "Golden" years. There is a reason that he took up the "other" breed and one can only guess why. I do have my thoughts.

    Bev...my smiley face meant to be an indication of a little bit of humor.

    Barty is obviously in most bigtime field pedigrees. I think some other sires that have and are producing well include Devil and Duncan. Both "nicked" with many bitches. Not sure if I've ever seen or heard of a Devil "dud"?

    Have also been thinking that about Duncan - as I look at so many pedigrees. Wish I could see more of these dogs in action.

    So John, which pup will you be picking out for Kippy from your history making litter? A sensitive one or the pig headed one?

    Just sharing some of the good old days of IiliNOISE and SE Wisconsin . What many don't know many of the old field trial dogs originated in Milwaukee and the Chicago metro area. Even going back to James lamb Free , Just North of Milwaukee with Charles Morgan, and the original Retriever Trial news was part of Wisconsin Amateur Field Trial Club. To name a few and some of the old Golden Folks, Minnesota, Wisconsin and IlliNOISE.. Get Junbe to jump in here just about those three states. Dr George Gardner of the Midwest Field Trial Club wouldn't allow me to join the club and sent me to the American amateur Retriever Club more blue collar , blue jean club...both clubs now are basically one in the same Chicago metro area now.

    It is then interesting to note the pedigree connections between these more recent top producing sires:Cotton & Duncan are both Barty sons; and Red was a Barty grandson. Elmer was a son of Tuffy; and Ki a son of Elmer.You might say that it's a small world

    Since field trials keep getting more competitive and tests more difficult, (not to mention more expensive!) I might wonder than ANY sire will be able to top the #s of 5 and 7 of the present top producing sires. However, when going back to the dogs on this list from the 50s, we also need to take into account that the #s competing were not as large as those in later years. By the 70s and 80s the # of entries had grown dramatically.

    Top Producing Sires of QAA
    1 AFC HOLWAY BARTY OS 2 /22/1971 Male 42 AllAge Offspring
    2 AFC YANKEE'S SMOKE'N RED DEVIL OS 1 /18/1978 Male 37 AllAge Offspring

    4 AFC EMBERAIN RUGBY WCX OS FDHF 3 /16/1999 Male 27 AllAge Offspring
    5 FC WRAITHS HTR MN BRO MACDHUIBH OS 10/14/1995 Male 26 AllAge Offspring
    6 FC-AFC CHIEF SANDS OS FDHF 12/3 /1966 Male 22 AllAge Offspring
    7 FC-AFC TANGELO'S SIDE KICK OS FDHF 5 /23/1981 Male 22 AllAge Offspring
    8 FC-AFC GLENHAVEN HTRS MN BARONET MH OS FDHF 6 /15/1996 Male 19 AllAge Offspring
    9 FC-AFC TIGATHOE'S KIOWA II OS FDHF 11/11/1971 Male 18 AllAge Offspring
    10 FC-AFC WINDBREAKERS MIGHTY MO OS FDHF 3 /28/1983 Male 16 AllAge Offspring
    11 WRAITH'S DUNCAN MH *** OS 10/14/1984 Male 16 AllAge Offspring

    I think our hope springs eternal because those who have played the game realize that there are many other good performers out there who just won't quite make it into a lot of the statistics.
