A TRIP TO NEWRY







Last week I took a trip up to Newry to see what the "master" had in store for this coming season.

Id like to thank the whole Matthews Family for a lovely day and a warm welcome

Sadly the two main stud dogs were away being drawn......But strengh in depth ment I had plenty of others to see.

First on the list , of course had to be the ever friendly Bexhill Brian.........Dog of the Year


seen here with Ambrose

If all goes well with Brian we could be seeing him out again this new season

along with Walace Flyer
things just went astray for this fella at the end of last year
just missing out on a run in Clonmel.....then picking up a injury in the Irish
Cup winner at Kilflynn and Newcastlewest


Wallace Chief
Cup winner at Crohane and Kilsheelan





Wallace Rock
Cup winner at Kilkenny

Latest Gamble
Oaks TS winner Castleisland
Was a real blow to see this lady pick up a injury when going so well in the Oaks
I was please to see her make such a good recovery.......although she won run again




The main yard is just above Newry  with a overflow up higher mainly for pups

Michael gives Damien a hand Triming nails


And Nial was helping his grandad cut the grass

that's some set up they have

Yvonne said...

It certainly is John

And the hard work that goes in to keeping it that way is amazing.......grassing cutting alone is a full time job..

Every dog is in first class condition
