November 2013 update on Shefaro bred live coursing Greyhound, Fenix (Lola x Einstein)
Live coursing (on hares) season started just 2 weeks back. Fenix ran at the first hunt and tied for 3rd/4th We just got back from our second coursing event. Fenix ran and got some more points with a 4th place with one of our largest hunts we have had in 4-5 years (15 greyhounds) I don't expect Fenix to do a ton more since he really is starting to get older but he has the experience and it showed this weekend. He is still extremely competitive and can do more than hold his own. He saved the course he was in by seeing the rabbit when none of the other dogs did. In our OFC circles he is considered top 5 and is a name most recognized. Never would have guessed that the small time texas pup would go on to be a current top coursing greyhound. Fenix is the brndle boy in the pink jacket in front.
November 23-24, 2013 Lure coursing at Florence, TX - two five point majors in Greyhounds and both went to Shefaro's Black Velvet.
Here are six of the eight entries at the gate getting ready to run. It was 39 degrees, cold, windy and rainy, but the dogs loved it and that's what counts. We were all bundled up to keep warm. Thanks to David and Dee for their help.
When we got home, she resumed being her playful self playing tug of war with Shefaro's En Fuego who also loves to chase the lure.
November 28, 2013 Nency's Canadian Champion Shefaro's Royal Eklips
