About Me:
I have imported two Irish Setters dogs being Ginger Meggs (Imp UK) in 1977 and Ciaran Dariabar (Imp UK) in 1988 from the late Marjorie Jarosz (Joanma's).

Over the years, I have bred only two litters of Irish and hope to bred another next year.

In 1995 I bred my current bitch, Irishfield Riona Ciara using Myra Thomas-Rhodes (Amhurst) Swedish imported dog Copper's Prins Trollmane (Imp Sweden) over a bitch I bred by my last UK import out of a Amhurst bitch, Amhurst Ragsdale Regae.

My young daughter and I have 2 rescue dogs (a desexed orange belton English Setter bitch, Cleo and a desexed Maltese dog, Charlie; 5 rescue cats; 5 pure bred dwarf lop and mini lop rabbits, silkie bantams, Pekin duck, birds and an old Jersey cow named Annabelle who is a pet and very tame and friendly.

My other passion is pure bred Arabian horses who I have owned since 1985. I have bred 6 pure breds since 1988. I used to show them very successfully at major shows in the mid 1980's to late 1980's both in hand and under saddle. I have 4 stallions and 2 mares plus a 30 yr old pure bred Welsh mare my daughter still rides but is about to retire and an 21 yr old Arabian pony mare we recently acquired who my daughter is having riding lessons on.

We live on acreage on the outskirts of Sydney, Australia.

Hi Nardi

Thanks for the info on your girl's pedigree.  My boy, Clancy is a grandson of Nome, so we have relatives!!

I like your girl's pedigree.  I haven't heard of her Grandfather (Ciaran Dariabar Imp UK).  Do you have any pics of him and does he still live in Australia?  Would love to see pics of her Mum Rachel too! 

It is hard to get good photos so I look forward to seeing some of your girl.

chat soon

So very sorry for your lovely Rachel and so envious you can keep them alive so long!!! Was the "end" of Rachel progressive or sudden? Was she active until the end? I lost my boy 3 weeks short of his 14th birthday but his mother died age 17!!!! I was hoping the same, but wasn't so lucky.

Wish you the best of luck with Ciara, hoping to see plenty of pictures of her and her beautiful puppies soon.

Hi Nardi, no, but thanks for your message now. 

I hope you are feeling better now.  Life seems to be very busy for everyone.  I hope your daughter enjoys her birthday.  My older son turned 20 on 5th and my younger son turns 16 on 4 August. 

Ciaran sounds like he was very special.

How exciting that your Ciara is over at Myra's.  I wish you all the best with the mating, etc.  I would love to know what male Myra is putting over your girl  I have a friend of mine who is looking for a new puppy, so would be very interested.  If you want, you can e-mail me direct at goreymky@bigpond.com

Look forward to hearing from you and would love to see some pics!

cheers

Hi Nardi

They are a very special breed and such special personalities.  So sorry to hear that you lost Rachel.  What a lovely lifetime you have had with both of Ciara's parents!

I look forward to seeing pics and hearing the selected sire when you can.

Hope you are having a nice relaxing weekend.

cheers

Cheryl

I have just attended Equitana an horse expo  held in Sydney Australia where the world's best horse trainers and/or riders have gathered to impart their knowledge.  One of the participants was Stacy Westfall from the USA.  Those interested in bringing out the best in our animals can only marvel at the trust and respect this horse has for her rider.  This youtube clip I have was from 2006 when she was competing freestyle having just lost her father shortly before the event paying tribute to…
