Exciting days at Brookbank...
Butterfly has been mated to Ardmuir Earl of Brookbank on 09-10. February, so we expect our D Litter at the beginning of April.
It is a special combination for us, Fly is an outstanding, very natural bitch with lots of style, with very carefully selected lines over many generations on both sides.
She is probably the most talented one from our B litter, which was a very homogen litter that produced really nice working pups.
Int FTCH Starcreek Ginger won an international field trial in Austria, which is her 6. international CACIT title...
The ÖRC has organized 2 international walked-up trials, Gin went very well over the two days, she had some stunning retrieves on the 2. days and could make it again to win the trial!
Her first retrieve was a wounded bird behind the line, guns kept on shooting while she was tracking the bird but she this didn't distrurb her.
Her 4. retrieve was a long, ~ 150 meters mark in the mustadrs, she has run to the spot without any help.
Int FTCH Starcreek Ginger won his 5. international open field trial in Konopiste.
It was a nice, mostly walked-up trial on pheasants in a huge, beautiful pheasantry in Konopiste which is a traditionally well-known estate in CZ.
Thousands of pheasants, it was very difficult for all competitors at the beginning, Gin was very clean over the whole day, and finally we could bring the trophies home.
