Our dogs are Saoisse Red nokomis, the bitch on the picture - a cheeky girl, and our visitor Dalriach Auchindoun.
Glad to be a member. Here in the United States come January 2009 our beautiful breed will be able to show at dog shows. This will be very exciting. My little Cailin is now 16 months old. She is O'Dobhailien Cailin Alainn JH. We are looking forward to seeing more Irish Red and White Setters at events.
Take care all and talk again soon,
No shows or HT this weekend, just trying to enjoy early summer 103F [40 C]....
Hi all. Theres a new embassador of the breed in a new Contry,Brasil.
Its "Sebastião do Porto Rio" ,Irws male with two months who travel yesterday to S.Paulo to live with a family who have already an Irish Red Setter.
Which males are all related ???? Has anyone been over using ?
I agree, breeders have to be careful, but I would not say that we are in need of outcross, that should alwasy remain as very last resort...
A breed survives on the talents of breeders, not on the quick fix of outcrossing..... I think we had a person here in the USA [cousins] that tried to bypass the hard work and went for outcrossing, no..:-(
The breed has available genepool, but breeders must put aside their persoal issues and accept all pure bred IRWS as equal and make great use of what is available......With global access, semen can come from anywhere these days.......
