Trip out last Saturday

Took myself and a mate out for a wee spot of ferreting last Saturday.



Its a local farm that I've worked for a few years now.

Eve got a good run, she hadn't been out lately as I was wating on her face healing.





It was a completely new set of ferrets this year that had never been out and were complete novices. My mate had a beano who worked very well and I had two sandy jills who also done well too. And a bonus of no lay ups or fingers biten  >:(



We had four for the freezer but one was full of tape worm eggs so that one was left for the buzzards.

Sounds like a goods day out mate.

What happened to Eve's face as she is healing?

We have tons of bunnies, but they all live inside the Cornish walls and we cant get anyone to come and ferret them.  they say they will lose them in there.  is this true?

I've ferreted the dry stone dykes from time to time and I've never lost one while doing it.

She had an accident with a barbed wire fence a few weeks back while we were out on the bunnies. She tore it down to the muscle and a a tear across her nose with a slight tear under the eye. If it was a couple of mils closer she would have lost her eye. I never understand why the people set barbed wire that low!!!

Here's a picture of it.



and one when fully healed.

Tay so glad to see it healing so well looks loverly dog. Been a farmer most of my life and hate barbed wire with a passion   all it does is rips animals and people

I agree with you mate.

Farmers want the job done, but then you find some of them have littered their land with barbed wire.

Many years ago I had to have a dog castrated, as he hit some barbed wire and ripped half his testies sack off.

Over here you very rarely see barbed wire, it all electric fencing.

Glad to see she has healed well.

My Lurcher got hung up on a barb wire fence last week, crazy dog jumped a fence in the dark, turned out to be a double fence  
Took about 5 mins to get him free from it, thats the problem with sight hounds when they are fixed on there quarry they dont care about anything else.

Please your girl has healed well TF, looks nice and clean

Couldn't agree more mate. Most of the land I have permission for has the stuff!
