Sounds like a good one, and one I will incorporate into my breeding if I get a chance. Dogs like this need to be recognized - producers aren't always the big name dogs in somebody's big time string, particularly in setters. They come from anywhere. |
: Bob is an awesome dog. I have seen him run
: on multiple occasions, consistent on all
: occasions. Don has had a lot of fun with
: him. Will he ever get much consideration as
: a stud probably not because people wont
: breed to a dog that is not in a pros string
: because most are more concerned about
: selling pups instead of making better dogs
: Quick Fairway Bob - 5yr old English Setter
: male owned by Don Kimble of Andover, KS, has
: one of the best records in America this
: field trial season. He has ran 13 times,
: all 1 hour stakes, and was 4 times 1st, 4
: times 2nd, and one runner up championship.
: 13 trials - 9 placements. He was named KS
: Horseback Shooting Dog of the Year, Midwest
: Field Trial Horseback Shooting Dog of the
: Year, and the winner of the National John
: O'Neall English Setter Amatuer Shooting Dog
: Award 2012. This setter has been judged by
: many astute trial judges and all found him
: to be a very easy winner. He runs with
: great class, points bird (both wild and
: liberated) with extreme straight up poker 12
: o'clock tail and always finishes out front.
: He was 1st at Ardmore Okla against 23
: pointers and Runner Up Champion at Region 17
: against 42 competitors and 7 or 8 of them
: were multiple shooting dog champions on the
: major circuit. This setter's real calling
: card is his ability to finish the best 10
: minutes of his hour stakes going away, out
: the front door, with more than enough left
: in his tank.
: His breeding is not bad either. His father
: placed 11 times and has Larry Hedge's great
: breeding male - "Walkabout Jack" -
: twice in his pedigree. "Jack"
: produced great trial dogs in every litter he
: ever sired. He is a brother of Hall of Fame
: Dog "Hicks Rising Sun" and Ch.
: Skidrow Joe, Sunflower Sunset, Arkansas
: Trooper, Ch. Tekoa Mtn Zephyr and Smooth
: Move, all from H.O.F. "Tekoa Mtn
: Sunrise". His mother is from R.U.C.
: High Definition from Ch. See Johny Run, and
: a daughter of Ch. See Johny Run and Sheray,
: a super female from Ch. Baraka and Little
: Apple Star. Star was a great breeding
: female with over 70 placements on her
: children. She is also on the father's side
: of the pedigree.
: This guy is the real deal and rumor has it
: another litter will be in the future.
