Great! But I can guess what happens if they spot a squirrel..........................................................................;o)

There was a full team that did the Iditarod (Not sure of the spelling of that one) in Alaska, hope the fall didn't hurt too much...and that was my thought Susan, they would just go off and chase something....I know mine would. But great to see them working so well together..;o))

They've passed rabbits and other dogs no problems. They are too focusd on working to be alert of what's going on around them. It's all about training but they do pick up speed if they see something on the trail like a bird but don't go to chase it if you know what I mean.

Do you get any snow in Donegal? Where I live in NE Scotland would be a great place for your setters. . We are close to Clashindarroch Forrest, where there are long tracks used for crosscountry skiing in the winter, and also ideal for mushing. I wish I was young enough to start something new with my dogs
Maybe you could could come up here for a winter holiday with your dogs!

Margaret we had some snow last year, not much. I've a few photos of them out mushing and Trevor dressed as Santa lol. We are off to England next week to run the dogs at the Forest of Dean on the Saturday.

It is something that I have wanted to do for years, but never had the chance, you are so lucky, here in Scotland as Margaret says there is a lot of snow and also a lot of forests. perhaps I should get a mettle tray and a strong lead....ha ha...;o))

Clashindarroch , where I often walk my dogs, is an ideal place for mushing. There must be at least 50 miles of forest tracks,which hold the snow as the sun hardly gets to them. If I was younger I would love to get involved with mushing. Last winter when I was snowed in, several people suggested using the dogs to pull a sled

OOps poor Trevor!! That looked like a very sharp turn there at the end!! Hope Trevor and Ole and Hector were OK?
Beautiful shots of the trees and sky to finish ;o))
