I'm not looking to breed but just curious, does Kid have any frozen? Seems like interest level in him as a sire would increase as well (pending availability of course).Kid was a wonderful dog and produced well. I trained with the Howards many,many times. They are very nice people too.
One thing that REALLY impressed me was how respectful and encouraging the handlers were to each other. The younger handlers especially so - There was aways a 'good luck' to the handler coming to the line as they left the line. They knelt down in the holding blinds if a dog was being handled on a mark, etc etc... Very neat to see and hear.
