I believe an Abe son placed quite well at a Labrador specialty show shown by Fran Smith DVM.

NFC Rocket comes to mind. He's is about as nice a they come in Field dogs in terms of conformation. I think you will find that there is much more to choose from in yellow Labs than black with Field dogs.

Does in have to be FC and/or AFC? Or, can it be an untitled dog with a strong Field pedigree?

Thanks, Nancy. Being in the same area, I can vouch for Fran having nice dogs. And she is a stickler for genetic health besides. Not being a "field" person, I can't vouch for what Abe's registered name is ;-) Can you help me out with this?


Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion! The bitch I am thinking of carries yellow, so a yellow stud dog wouldn't be all bad...

An untitled dog with a strong field pedigree would be fine. Please feel free to suggest any that come to mind!

Ken Archer has a pup by a dog bred by Mary Howley that is Field titled and really nice in terms of type. I think he is black.

Hilltops's Hayseed (Bubba) is nice but I wouldn't breed him to another yellow dog, he has poor nose pigmentation but over-all nice. Cosmo Concerto Charlie has a nice body but, haven't seen his tail. Hard to tell what that tail looks like when they are sitting. Both NAFC Cropper and M D Houston produced some great looking dogs in terms of type.

I'll PM you some other suggestions as they come to mind.

When one ask for breed type in Field dogs, it is almost a trick question! :wink:

FC/AFC Webshire's Honest Abe. Sired 37 FC or AFC's, 9th highest producer if good dog info is right.

This is the dog Fran owned and showed. My recollection was 5th out of 17 but don't ask me if overall or in a class. Abe passed white and she got the white in some pups from Abner and sold him.

That's the dog I mentioned earlier that Ken has a pup by. He emailed me pics of the dog back whren he was getting his pup and he is awesome. I beleive he has some bench in his pedigree. Mary Howley is the breeder.

There is NO "show", BUT "duel" from the very last duel CH registered in this country...here is his pedigree. VERY impressive (and old) I might add:
Well, that explains his size with dogs in the pedigree like Big River ****, Thunderhead and Dude!

Yes, Booty, I do like my daughter of Buck, FC Fox-C's Take It To The Bank. She is very tightly line bred. Sired by Buck, her maternal grandmother is a litter mate to Buck. Now with her good looks and very correct feet and legs, I can outcross her to some nice hot field studs and produce my goal of "Dogs that run like hell and look good doing it."

I'm waiting till about December when Crow River's Cougars Mad Max is back in Texas to breed a bitch to him. Under the right all-breed judges, Max could probably score some points in show competition. He already has one Open and two Amateur wins. I was wishing he would title this Summer.

Nan Ruby's boy, FC AFC Kensbridge Darkly Handsome is hard to beat also.

I've bred to him twice and LOVE the puppies.....

He passed away, but I heard she had some semen left from him.

She also has a son of "Dean"'s.....by Dean (FC AFC Kensbridge Darkly Handsome) and the female that FC AFC "Telli" is out of. Saw him when he was derby age and he was a looker. His name is Andy.
