We are a small hobby kennel consisting of four labradors and an Irish setter. I have always had dogs since an early age.
My interest was rekindled a couple of years ago when I acquired a yellow labrador bitch (Poppy) from working stock. Poppy has passed both her grade one and grade two Gundog Club retriever tests with merit.
Following on from Poppy we then bought in a black labrador, again from working stock (Murphy), who has passed his grade one Gundog Club retriever test with merit and grades two and three with distinction. Murphy is now 9 years of age but his enthusiasm for working is as strong as ever. He has had numerous awards in working tests over the years and in 2015 competed in 3 Veteran Working Tests coming 2nd with the URC Lincs Area, 1st with Lincolnshire Gundogs and 3rd with the URC North Midlands Area. He is a regular member of the picking up team during the shooting season. Molly (She's So Magical ) joined us in 2011 and I bred with her in 2013 with Murphy. We kept a dog and a bitch from the litter. Bailey and Dixie are competing in novice working tests and had their first full season on the shoot in 2015. I hope to trial with them this season. Bailey is at stud,he has sired his first litter in 2015 producing 10 healthy pups 7 black and 3 yellow.

We have also shown Murphy with a little success. He is also proving a willing competitor within the junior handling ranks, being handled by one of our friends' daughter with a great deal of success.
We then decided to look for another breed within the gundog group and decided on an Irish Setter.
Riley came to join us in June 2008 being bred by Annette Harris of the Mantafield affix. His sire being SH CH ASTRAZONE SPECIAL BREW (Gaynor Myers) and his dam is MANTAFIELD KERRY'S A CRACKER.
Riley has such a lovely temperament and is having some success in the show ring. I am also planning to instill some work ethics into him and we have begun his gundog training. He is on the stop whistle and comes to the recall whistle.
