  1. that looks lovely. well, i'm finding it hard to get the courage to move back:) it's been a long time since i've lived in us and i've never lived in a more beautiful country that here! i'd be looking for a farm house and small bit of land to train pups to start with, so i suppose i just have to take that jump. that website is mainly for farm work, shepherding position, livestock management,etc. i'd say you wouldn't have a hard time finding a vet position in uk! thanks for the info.
  2. well, i spent half my life in texas. i'm well able for the heat and i lived in hungary as well. i love the snow there and it didn't prevent us from schooling dogs:) but i don't know about this snow they get up in that area! the damp here is a killer though during winter, creeps into your bones! what kind of work are you looking for in uk. i can give you a web address where they advertise farm jobs. especially at lambing:) it will be terribly hard to give up access to top handlers and so many trials. there will be many tears shed if i make the move! it is not too hard to find rural properties/f
  3. thanks liz. my brother is moving to rochester and i'd like to be close to them. i don't know what it is like renting house out in rural area there with a field. the costs of trialling in the us can be extremely prohibitive, where as here, i can take my pick of 2/3 trials in a day, most within 2-3 hour drive. trade offs i suppose! as long as the summers are warm, hopefully i can cope with that amount of snow:)
  4. thanks julie. i was in touch with beverly lambert and she gave me the nebca website. i didn't realize they had a fb link! i've been trying in vain to look up us agriculture requirements for keeping sheep. i also found the wool festival on web. thanks so much for replying. great suggestions. i thought it would be quite different from renting a field, getting a flock number and chucking your sheep on it! but it may be even easier than here. again, thanks a million! k.
  5. Hello, I am considering moving back to the u.s. from ireland. I am considering moving to upstate new york. I was wondering if anyone in the n.e. could steer me in the right direction as far as keeping a flock in n.y. Do you need a flock number to keep stock? what is the sheep production like in the n.e.? i train and trial dogs and the move would take into consideration the easy of getting sheep.if anyone could give me any information on keeping livestock in the n.e. it would be greatly appreciated! thanks.
  6. for anyone interested, the isds website has up to date reports throughout the day for the nationals. congratulations to frankie mc cullough and craig this past weekend!
  7. To be honest, i'm not sure why he wants barbados. i think he wanted to cross them with easy care. they'd have to be embryos as i don't think he can import otherwise into ireland. i'm certain no one keeps barbados here.
  8. hello all. i was wondering if anyone on the boards could recommend someone who deals with barbados sheep embryos. i have a friend looking to import some. thanks for any information. k.
  9. lynda, i'm so sorry for your loss. was tan registered with the i.s.d.s? if he has a reg. number but you don't have the pedigree,you can easily get one from the isds or from http://www.bcdb.info/index.htm. he charges a small fee- i think something like 7 euro.the isds also sells stud books but they are very dear-would love to have the set.you can always go back to where you got him and ask about his pedigree ,the lines,kind of workers his parents were,etc.most people are quite willing to provide any information on their dogs. sounds like you made a lovely life for yourself there in canada
  10. http://ffermio.tv/en/world-sheepdog-trials...nteresting-runs they will also be adding video of all the runs ,semi-final and finals,onto their website k.
  11. hallo, i'm not sure this is the correct place to ask this or what the etiquette in this case is(i don't really post much on forums,so i'm kind of clueless), but i was wondering if anyone had any information on a dog in virginia.we are considering buying a pup by this dog and as i do not know this breeder or dog,was looking for some information on him.a friend started the dam,so we know what she's like.i thought someone from the east may know.i won't post any names here but if anyone may be able to help, i'd greatly appreciate it. thanks a million. krisztina
  12. hallo, the mudi is one of the national dogs here in hungary. they are very sweet dogs.there working style is very different from sheepdogs(border collies). all three herding dogs here- mudis, pulis and pumis, bark ALOT. they bark when they work- that's how they move them. the ybasically wear behind the sheep,barking. shepherds use them to drive large flocks and they basically go from side to side,barking. they also bark in the house. um, did i say they bark? :)i know a couple of people here who have trained their dogs to work sheepdog style, but it is really through obediance.they've taugh
  13. swedish. yes there is a video of jim - if you click on jim -ny hundar i believe it takes you there.if you click on hundar i believe there are a few more videos of his others dogs. k.
  14. thanks julie.skoj is quite a character and she's tiny slip of a thing- 10 kilos at 6 months. the ewes also have horns,about 10''-12'', so you really have to watch your backside! sue, i can tell you one of the most interesting things that i learned from the clinic is his method of starting a young dog. of course he likes to see how they circle and treat their sheep from the beginning but he soon goes to working the sheep on a fence line. he doesn't let the dog work a whole circle until he is responding to his commands on the half circle. i've been worlking with finn on this for the last mon
