Our female branko beagle just came into heat so we're planning on breeding her in her next cycle which should be around March. I just wanted to start the legwork awhile and find a stud that will compliment her style and didn't know if you other guys had any suggestions. She's an 8 or 9 on speed and will flat out chase down a rabbit. She also has a pretty good nose but is so fast she tends to swing wide in the checks. She works great for us as we only hunt and don't trial but I was hoping to find a stud with decent speed but could really work the checks well. Just curious if anyone had any suggestions. In looking around on another forum I came up with three I really liked

Murray's Beethoven (just because he's a direct heli-prop male)

And IFC Greenwell's Reggie.

I just have a thing for blue ticked and red ticked dogs and have been nothing but impressed with Branko's dogs as well so I'm a little partial to them although I am open to absolutely anything.

Here's my dog Ruby's pedigree.

All 3 that you mentioned are good dogs. Everyone on here is going to have different opinions on this, so my best advice would be to go and watch as many studs run as you possibly can before you choose. I've watched reggie run a couple times and I would highly recommend him as a stud. I am also a big fan of FC Side Hill Keuka Blue, and IFC Beavercreek's Blue Max.

I'd condsider Int FC Dirty Pond Legacy's Blacky, also.
http://www.dirtypondbeagles.com/ go to "At Stud"

I've seen him circle rabbits many times while the rest of the dogs can't get a hold of the scent. Nothing more impressive then a hound getting it done while other dogs are shut out.

He has excellent nose, check work, and line control. Very good foot in his prime (he's 10 so slowing down but never out of the race). He is gun hunted extensively and if he can't get it done odds are no one else down with him will either. I'm sure Andy has no issues of anyone watching him run in the worst conditions you can throw at him. He hunts him most of the winter upstate NY. I've been up there a few times and that's about as much snow and cold as I ever want to see!

I almost forgot a buddy of mine has FC JNK's Blue Boy Runner at his place here in PA for a while. He may be another one to look at. If you can't tell I'm partial to the blue ninja stuff.

LOL...I already got a PM about him and as of now he's definitely on the top of my list. I've been reading some posts over on the AB forum and saw you and Andy were members there as well. I've been wanting to post there but every time I try and register the admins never unlock my account. Now that I know of a few members here who know Andy I'll be keeping in touch. Since this will be my first time breeding my beagles what are the typical rules for running? How long after they're bred do you have to stop running them and how long after the pups are born until you can run them again? Sorry for the questions but I want to do this right. One of these pups is going to be my little boys so he's even more excited than I am


Here's what the potential pedigree would look like. I know it doesn't mean too much without proper training and run time but I still like it.

I have a video of Reggie running cottontail... He is real smooth and as "checkless" as I've seen in many years.. Ran with his head up and kept the line moving and turned with the rabbit, as I said "checkless".. Good luck with whatever you decide.. Your gyp is bred very well..

Don't go soley on FC status. There are a lot of paper-champions with no hunt. Watch some dogs run and see what you like. I have a male, I am willing to run against any dog. PM me if you are interested.

I agree with you PAUplandHunter. That's why when I posted originally I mentioned what i was looking for in regards to traits and didn't make any mention of FC status. However, some of the studs out there right now have some nice looking pedigrees on top of their abilities. Plus, in the end it all comes down to training. If the dogs trained hard and ran often they could be a heck of a hunter regardless of who the dam and sire are. I'm just looking for something with some excellent checking ability. You're probably not too far from me so come March I may be looking you up. It's all up in the air right now but thanks for the offer.

If you didn't mind shipping her you may consider sending her to Brankos kennels.I think he may even have ombre at stud yet, 12 years old? I have also heard a lot of good about hammer he is at stud too.

LOL...she'd be going home then. She is directly from Branko's own kennel.

Beethovan would be a excellent choice. He is a excellent check dog with good speed for his age.You should breed to him now instead of latter I think he will be 12 this year . After he"s 12 I think Jason is only going to breed to select females. I have Branko's also I am taking a female to him in the spring. Contact JMOR'S KENNELS .

I wonder if Reggie is coming back to PA for a visit, I could use him come March. I don't want to ship and sure don't feel like a seven hour ride to KY.
