I want to start a discussion that encompasses a more complete understanding of where Irish Setters ( Bench/Field ) are today - worldwide. I ask ahead of time that this discussion be kept non-denominational and unalligned to any preconceived national/kennel biases. It is posted to teach and enlighten, not to divide and separate. Please respect these parameters!
So let me start with Feet! How important do you think they are to the whole picture of an Irish Setter? Let me hear your routine foot care, your parameters for evaluating healthy feet and what you view as great feet, plus any problems that you have encountered with feet and the solutions that you found, etc.
Once this facet is exhausted, I will post the next anatomical consideration for discussion. I openly admit that I have much to learn about the most elemental aspects of an Irish Setter-so I am asking all of you to share so that we can all be educated for the overall benefit of our beloved Irish Setter-OK?
