I live in So. Calif. on a 5 acre horse ranch. I decided to get into showing dogs when I could no longer show my horses. I chose Irish setters, began to show, and then planned to get a foundation sire and dam for a breeding kennel. I owned "Hooligan", BiS/BiSS Ch Ballymera's Whisperin' Secrets, ROM. Hooli has produced over 70 bench champions to date. He recently passed away in March 2009 at 13 yrs. I am fortunate to have quite a lot of his frozen semen which can now be used on his beautiful granddaughters.
Pleased to see that you joined us on here. I'm sure you'll enjoy the site. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos and hearing about your Irish. I'm so sorry to hear about Hooli, I know how special he was to you. How lucky you are to have his frozen semen, as a successful mating will give you a continued link with him.
