Trimming the neck of an Irish.

Posted on April 15, 2013 at 10:28pm 4 Comments

I would appreciate some help with trimming the neck of an Irish Setter.

I have just purchased a set of electric clippers and would like to know what number plastic blade cover to use.

Any other advise and hints would be good as I do not want to make a complete botch of the job on my first attempt.

Thank you,


Average height for a 9 month IS girl

Posted on December 26, 2012 at 1:53am 7 Comments

Could some one tell me what the average height is for a 9 month old Irish Setter bitch.

My girl is 24" at the shoulder but when she stands next to other setters she seems a bit under size.

She has all UK and Europian blood lines and in Australia we have a lot of Setters with American lines which seem taller than UK dogs.

Thanks for any information.

Welcome to ES Graham!!!  you cannot have a better companion than an IS, so very good decision, hope you will soon show us pictures of the elected one... :-)

I can see that you have done your home work already, very well organised, very well done!!! and what is your prefered line? male or female? just one or two? If you keep watching all the pictures on ES, especially all the puppies, you may want to go for option 2 or 3 to speed up the process  :-)

Graham you are certainly less novice than me!!!!  I really like your approach, personaly I couldn't wait but it is not to say I am right, far from it, just being emotional as usual. Are you aiming at a dog from Myra?

Hi Graham

Welcome to this great site.  I live in Queensland too, up just north of Mackay.  Would love to know what lines you had your Irish from previously.  I have owned Irish for about 23 years now.

chat soon, Cheryl

Hi Graham

I knew of the Listowel Kennels, but didn't see any as I didn't travel much back in those days!

My boy, Clancy has Listowel breeding back in his pedigree behind the Rednasyl lines (so back about 6 generations).  Clancy's dad,  Amhurst Shadows of Eire lives in Brisbane with his owner, Carmel Stringfellow.  Carmel has the Shadowvale kennel and Clancy's Mum is a local girl here and has the Listowel lines behind her.  If you scroll far enough through my pics, you will find Clancy's 5 gen pedigree (I can't attach files to comments). 

My girl, Bridget has come from England from the Millcroft Kennel and her lineage goes back to the Wendover lines too.  My Clancy also has a Millcroft dog back in his pedigree behind his Amhurst lineage.

I have their 3 gen pedigrees on my website:  www.irishsetters-whitsunday.com if you wnat to have a look.

Yes, we are definitely sick of the rain!  Our driveway has springs popping up, so its an interesting exercise!!!

It is raining again now and they don't think it is going to let up any time soon!!!!

chat soon

Many thanks for the invite Graham and very happy to become your ES friend!!!

Hi Graham

That's good news.  I'm glad you are sticking with the UK lines.  I was hoping my putting 2+2 together meant you were getting a pup from Carmel.  She had told me her plan for the end of the year and we were chatting on e-mail over the weekend. 

So, if you get a pup from Carmel (Annabelle & Mac), then we will own relatives as my Clancy is a son of Brodie and you will have a grand-daughter!!

I noticed another comment on your page re Myra.  Myra is the breeder of Carmel's Brodie ("Amhurst" kennel in WA).  She is also on ES, if you want to check out her page.

We have actually had some blue sky today!!!!  YEAH!!!! 

Cheers and chat soon

Hello Graham,

looks like you are having fun on the site. Showing this weekend. Miss Annabelle on 65 points. Should have her wrapped up by the time she comes back into season.

Hi Graham,

I had a good win at Durack. Mac got the dog challenge and then Annabelle got BOB. We are going to Pine Rivers tomorrow so hoping we pick up some more points. Mac is on 42.

I see you have been talking to Nardi. The bitch Regae that she is talking about was the mother of my first dog from Myra, Amy. I sadly had to put her to sleep just before

Christmas. Sophy is her daughter so Mac is her grandson. Funny how they all tie in isn't it?

Will keep in touch,

Hi Graham,

Annabelle and Mac were the only entries. I had a friend help me, but the judge asked us to swap dogs, I had Mac, and then gave BOB to Annabelle. 71 points.
