a wee brag was created by Terry
The day after Christmas,I and Tess drove six hours to northern Georgia to go Lure Coursing as there were going to several more Deerhounds there (almost no one in Florida courses). We coursed both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a not too difficult win for Tess, she got First and Best of Breed. Sunday, however, was a another story. She had intense competition and had a hotly contested second run which ended in a tie for first and therefore a runoff. It again was a neck and neck run and we were kept in suspense as to who had what til the Awarding of ribbons. Finally after sitting through all the other breeds, we learned that Tess had come through and captured first and BOB again. Incidentally, that Friday was Tess' whelping day, She turned three. Bye the bye she's from Rait, Scotland and a bonnie wee lass she is! pictures to follow.

Hi Sid,

I e-mailed them, but haven't had a reply. I'm sure I will.

Thanks,

The chap who took the ones of Tess has a camera and lens that probably cost 1500 pounds, if not more. It will focus very fast and take upwards of 10 pics per second. The lens is abou a foot and half long. Plus, he's experienced it using it. He supports himself and his coursing habit with his photography. Nice job, he travels all over the states. Different places almost every week.

Thanks Robb, I love to see her run, she loves it.

Sorry, Ann, while Dan was there, I haven't gotten his yet. The ones I posted were by a young chap, Lee Gearhart. He and his family are into the coursing as much as he is into taking the photos. They have Afghans and greys. None of the "most perfect creatures" Though in another post I was reffering to Dan when was lamenting the quality of their photos. With both of them taking pictures, you can see why I said I fall prey to the photographers, as they both do great work. The photo of Tess passing the other dog is by Lee and Dan got the same from the otherside, just brilliant stuff.

Brilliant photos. Like Houndy, I wish I could take better photos of ours in action. I was watching Bree and Lockie going hell for leather this morning. On our dry earth they sound like a herd of horses galloping. They are just awe inspiring but I do watch with baited breath as I'm scared silly when they do flying leaps of the retaining wall and go screaming down the bank.
