On January 10, 2007, I spoke to Ryan Fortier of Longhollow Setters about a litter of English Setter pups he had on the ground. Ten days later, I was on my way to the Bozeman airport to pick up my new and first English Setter pup.
Since that day, my bird dog experience took on a new face and a new level of appreciation for well bred pionting dogs. Ultimately, I was introduced to Tim Powell, who purchased Luke, the other remaining male in the litter.
Tim and I have become close friends and recognizing we had special dogs along with another littermate, River, now owned by Jim Cleary of Bozeman, Mt., we decided to maintain their line for future breeding.
The Bottom line here is we simply want to provide nice, biddable dogs for those interested in well bred English Setters with natural instincts.
Please continue to check in with us as we trial and hunt our dogs. We'll have updates here on available and upcoming litters, started dogs, trial results, hunting stories and links related to bird dogs and upland hunting.
