    If I had a titled Hilltop's HAYSEED (Bubba) bitch I would breed to Lean Mac in a Georgia second. JMHO.

    It's been done recently. No I wouldn't, because I'm too risk averse for a big financial commitment.

    If I had an NAFC or NFC bitch I might because of the uniqueness of a pairing and as long as the lines matched well....from a more practical standpoint we have an AFC female that we considered breeding and someone suggested Lean Mac, but the financial risk vs reward compared to the potential return did not make any sense....the other factor is that there are plenty of Lean Mac sons and grandsons with worthy credentials that would be less risky than breeding to the legend

    I'll ask you a few questions?

    Ever see Lean Mac run & if so how many times?

    Do you have any inkling of SS's history buying High Point Derby dogs?

    Ever read "Stud" or "Horse of a Different Color"?

    Do you understand anything about marketing?

    At what level do you train & with whom?

    Well Marvin, although I find your response a bit contentious I'll play.

    From reading your posts and previous discussions I understand you to be a fairly educated man. What part about "Rhetorical ". And "Bored " do you not understand?

    Ive never seen Mac run( that I know of)

    I spoke to Sherwin on different occasions in the '80's- 90's Used his "Trumarcs Sting" as stud once maybe twice. I never had a reason to keep track. (Long before all the internet heros)

    He bought what he wanted and did as he pleased. Was always friendly to me.

    i make a living in sales not engineering or mining. I have a very good grasp on marketing.

    As to what level do I train and with whom. Who gives a
