Lyndaloo This is Doris, Branta's sister, Tarimoor Hidden Light, who will be joining my mad household in 2 weeks' time.

He’s now coming up to 14 months and an utter monster at times but when he’s good he’s a delight to be around.

Pops was bought to show. When Freddie’s breeder realised I was showing him she said she’d have picked a different puppy for me. This time she picked, I knew which one she’d picked for me (red collar) but when I went to pick she’d removed all the identifying collars (some by accident, some be design). I picked the puppy she’d earmarked for me. Pops has only done one show but got best baby in breed first time out. Her grandfather was a French dual champion so in theory, she should have working ability in her genes. One of her siblings had gone to an Italian breeder with a view to making her up into an Italian dual champion. I’m concentrating on the show side for the time being but to get a French show champion title she’ll also have to compete in field trials too.

The coat thing is all very hush hush in the UK. There are plenty of lines that carry it and are affected but it’s swept under the carpet. Pops grandfather was from a well known British kennel who were, apparently, showing “fluffy” dogs in the 80s and 90s.

Exciting times for us both.
Very!

I've never heard anything about the coat, the only issue I've had with coat is that not everyone liked Tau's pale colour, and her coat is quite thin in comparison to some coats, although it's never been an issue and we do get some pretty horrible weather where I live. Zasa's coat is denser, but still sparse compared to some of the show Labradors, but again, never had an issue, she's worked all day without ever showing any signs of being cold, even when wet through all day.

I've no idea re the coat thing, I did a bundle of genetic tests with a Laboratory, which Zasa was clear for all of, including Narcolepsy, obesity gene, various forms of myopathy, and a whole host more, but the main five she was clear for as well. The results were about 3 pages long, most I'm sure, will have nothing to do with Labradors.

My breeder took similar pics before we had Juice!! OMG!! now I have looked at her pedigree!!

Juice has "Barley Wine" as a GGP (sires side) and "Jane Eyre" as a GGP (dams side) !!

OK, she is a little stinker, but Juice is the most loving lab that I have ever had ❤️

Chel and Juice xx 🐾🐾
Zasa is the softest dog going, she loves nothing more than cuddling up on your knee and is such a fab mum. I'm really looking forward to training this little girl up, I'm sure the ratbag gene will be strong in this one xx

Her father was affected. I’ve noticed more and more studs in Europe are tested for the FGF5 gene (long coat) but I only know 2 studs that have been tested for KRT51 and that’s her father and my boys father! Her father was only tested because comments were raised about his father whom people commented had a fluffy coat, back in the day (he died in 2004). I do know that my boy is clear as both his parents have been tested...as if there’s not enough to worry about! Lol

JohnW I see Lynda's Water Reed in there, and quite a bit of the late Janice Pritchard's dogs. In her latter days, Janice, working with Kate Smith, moved more towards dual purpose dogs, using Pocklea Remus on Ballylace to produce Ballyapril, she then used Endacott Store to produce Summerain, who I had the honour of showing for Kate in the Gamekeepers Ring at Crufts one year. Your pups are distantly related to Summerain, because Barley Wine goes back to Ballywillwill who in turn goes forward to Summerain!
Oh, and Zenny. Seem to remember he finished his days with Dave Scott? (Redracer) Working on the grouse moors. He was by Fulbeck Fantail, out of Haverton Tawny Pipit At Brigburn. I love Lynda Heron's dogs. Lynda is a breeder of the old school. Sadly not many left now.

Tarimoor For anyone interested in that sort of thing, this is Branta's pedigree.
