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!

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.

Hi Nardi,

Thanks for the friend request. How many setters do you have and how old are they?

Kind Regards

Hi Di,

I have only one 6 year old bitch now who I bred.  I lost her mother (who I bred from a dog I imported from the UK out of an Amhurst bred bitch) St Patricks Day this year (very fitting I suppose for an Irish) at 16 years of age - the same age her father and his father lived to.  My bitch is by Myra Thomas-Rhodes  Swedish import "Nome" and we have just missed on a mating with one of her Swedish A.I. boys "Gillou" but plan to try again next season (around Easter next year).  I have friends who live in High Range and I was looking to purchase property around Colo Vale but think I will stay in Sydney.  I purchased my first Irish Setter whilst going to school in England on transfer with my late stepfather's job in 1975 and brought him and a Labrador we bought over there back to Australia.  Kind regards, Nardi

Hi Peter, I am living with my young daughter in the Hawkesbury area at the moment (as I have 6 pure bred Arabian horses 4 of whom are stallions that I bred, 1, 30 yr old Welsh mare and a 21 yr old Arabian pony mare) but have lived in Mosman, Lane Cove, Wahroonga (plus London, Norfolk UK, & Adelaide).  I thought I was about to have a litter of Irish pups (1st-3rd November) but my bitch sadly wasn't in whelp when ultrasounded.  She was mated to Myra Thomas-Rhodes, Gillou and she is by Nome out of a bitch I bred from a dog I imported back in 1988 from the UK out of a Amhurst bitch (Amhurst Ragsdale Regae).  Myra and I are going to try again next season (around Easter next year) as Myra would like a dog puppy from my bitch, Irishfield Riona Ciara being 3/4 her breeding; the other 1/4 being my import from the UK.  I would like another bitch as Ciara will be 7 at the end of April and I have never bred from her.  I bought my first Irish back in 1975 when my late stepfather was transferred to England on business. It will be nice to continue on my connection to my first Irish (Ginger Meggs (Imp UK) so please keep your fingers crossed we are successful next time round.  I have just sent off  this past week blood and mouth swobs for CLAD and late onset PRA-4.  I am hoping we get CLEARS for both.  Best wishes, Nardi

Thank you Nardi I watched your video taken at Equitana absolutely amazing. We will be in Aus in December for 6 weeks not sure where you are but we will be with family in Turramurra.

My mother lives in Wahroonga which is next door suburb to Turramurra.  I visit the area regularly so if you can give me contact details, I will contact you so we can meet up.

Hi Nardi we know Wahroonga very well especially the deli and coffee shops. We also do quite a bit of travelling locally and love to visit Galston, Berowra, Pittwater, Kurungai, Brooklyn, Avoca, Terrigal, We have friends in canberra who emigrated 4 years ago with their 3 IS and Helen was still showing in Aus last year when we visited them. She has a lovely needless to say British born boy who sired a litter in Brisbane last year. I will let you have contact details just before we leave the UK.
