About Me:
Inspired by worlds best literature on Irish setters and those alive, I hope to help survival of an original red setter as an intelligent working athlete. A pay back for an adventurous life with redcoats. Nature becoming an open book was thanks to them.

Whoopie what a warm welcome, Alenka, Mirjam, Myra, Katariina & Christiane. Reading you all while enjoying a cigar and a good glass of whiskey encircled by silver muzzled Irish, makes life taste extra well!!! Hope to enjoy some fantastic debates with a smile. Cheers Henk.

Haha Frances, you're as young as you feel. And never too old to forget about our youth:-)))))

Hey ofcourse I remember you travelling from Ireland to England as a kid even working in Wendover kennels to Belgium with one big love: Irish setters. And Trawricka Golden Ambition (Tanya) being your ambition as well. With a lot of FT-winners in her pedigree.

It would be the biggest surprise for me to see you back to where you once belonged: to the red setters as you called them and active in both fields: field and show. Great to read you've enjoyed those Dublin mountains as fantastic. I've enjoyed your wins with Charmed... I like enjoying!

I've tried to get rid of my old love Irish setters but it didn't work. When - by accident- I saw some working fields the damn old story began to explode. That is where I feel at home prefarably alone. Its about bonding with your setter. Nothing beats memories born while working - like getting lost in snowstorms in Poland two reds working like swallows on four legs in front of you.

Maybe training in Roxheim would be a good idea., thats the finish of training youngsters in the ISCN-scheme. Anyway Frances, before you become a living Irish setter monument, try to revive some of its heydays - those of Tanya. I'd like to enjoy that once again....

Hey thanks. Yes it was a celebration those pups in a great Indian Summer. I'll never forget that first one on my bed. Can you imagine awakening like that. He has a good life now in Canada and flying all over the world for holidays. Hopefully life is good for you as well in Wisconsin, by the way pups mother is from Kentucky.
