Thread: His First Drag

  1. #1

    His First Drag

    Lovely, cold afternoon in the Scottish Borders and out with youngest son(10) for a go at the sika.

    Wrapped up for the high seat and raring to go!

    There was a calf in the field that had obviously got lost from the group, running up and down the fence so it was taken. He was then allowed to drag it back to the car unassisted. I was busy...

    Anyway, 300m later...

    It's great now that he and his older brother are big enough to assist in the work.

    They are no longer wee pests, but great company. I handed him the binos and shut my eyes for half an hour after this one and told him to give me a quiet nudge if he saw anything. In fact they are actually quite handy, not just good company...

    Nice!

    You can't send them to the mill or up chimneys any more, but this seems just as useful!

    Great to get them out and not being a pain anymore.

    My eldest has been out a few times this year, not quite up to dragging yet but good at carrying the pack.


    Not slave labour at all, education..............

    Great to see the youngsters out at it Freddie keeps asking to come out with me, think he's a bit young yet, 4 next week! Plus I think the chance of him keeping quiet are a long way off! Before you know it Brian the boys will be wanting they're own proper dogs, I'm sure we could find another couple of HS somewhere

    The two of them are very good with the dogs and have been asking for their own cockers for a couple of years now to work at the pheasants. I think they are just now getting to the age where they can be trusted to listen. I hope I don't have enough work for 3 scenthounds in the family!!!

    Nice to see you aren't spoiling him and letting him use a rope or anything! I must have been about 7 or 8 when I was initiated into the art of taking my side of the stick with stag in tow! 50 years on and I can remember it vividly.
