Entries in Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla (13)


Hungarian Wirehaired Vizlsa called Howie - seeks new home and found it. 

Howie on the moveThis lovely two year old castrated boy, is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.  He is obedient and we think he would be happiest living with another dog but certainly an active household.  At present he is living with Yvonne in Somerset and has fitted in really well with her HWVs.  He is docked.  If interested in giving this young handsome lad a home please contact either myself on 01531 640102 or Yvonne on 01984624670.

Howie is a son of Tilly from her first litter.  He has good temperament.  As you can see from the photograph he looks a happy boy.


Exciting news - Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Pups due

Really excited that the long awaited litter from Tilly -Ginger Lillie Around Oakberrow - is due on Monday 8 June 2015.  Tilly is a daughter from Gin from her first litter by Roy Bebbington's dog Zorro.  This litter proved to be excellent workers and also have had an excellent career in the show world.

Tilly won Best Puppy at Crufts in 2010 and also has gone on to win one Challenge Certificate with Best of Breed at Windsor Championship show and a Reserve Challenge Certificate at Midland Counties Championship show under the late Sheila Gray.  A consistent winner at both Open and Championship Shows.

The dad of the pups is Pam Wellstead's Ragnolds Ljuka who already has winning progeny in the show ring.

The photo shows Tilly and a headshot of Ljuka.

Breeze at 13 months brains as well as beautyOakberrow had an amazing time in the show ring for both the sheep and the dogs.  Our goregous little girl Breeze won Best Bitch at the HWVA Breed Open show held at Stoneleigh, under gundog specialist judge David Shields.

And not to be outdone by her success our handsome Ryeland ram Noble won the Sheep Inter Breed Championship at Moreton in Marsh Show, all the years I have been showing sheep I have never been fortunate enough to be awarded such an accolade.

BreezeAbsolutely delighted and very proud of my little girl Breeze, her posh name Oakberrow Gintastic.  At the West Country Dog Club Open Show held over Easter she won Best of Breed beating her mother.  Her success went even further because she competed in the adult Gundog Group and was awarded second - so second best gundog in show.  Then to top it all she was award Best Gundog Puppy in Show.

Last week her brother Streudel, competed at Chippenham Canine Society Open Show where he won Best Puppy making this his second after success at recent Mid Western Gundog Society Open show.

The two of them will be making their first appearance at a Championship Show at the end of the month, West of Englands Ladies Kennel Society which is being held at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern.

After that they are going to Birmingham National Championship Dog Show where they will have their very first stab at qualifying for Crufts.



Steve, myself and all at Oakberrow wish all our friends a family best wishes for the festive season. 

2012 has been an exciting year with our first Greyfaced Dartmoor Lambs being born at Oakberrow.  Also Gin having her gorgeous litter of Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla pups.  Foster winning the Challenge Certificate at Paignton Championship Dog Show and also Best of Breed.  At the beginning of the year both Gin and Foster won their Show Certificates of Merit.

Success at the shows with the Ryeland Sheep and my year as President of the Ryeland Flock Book Society which ends soon and the Presidency will be handed over to John Donovan.  The Workshop for Ryeland members held in August at the Three Counties Showground which was a resounding success with 80 members attending.  Although hard work thoroughly enjoyable and very rewarding with all having gone home having learnt something.

The launch of the web site - it is a year old and has been visited and enjoyed by many, however there is always work to do to improve.

Exciting judging appointments for both dogs and sheep for myself and Steve for sheep and Longhorn cattle.

From all at Oakberrow best wishes
