Thank you very much.

Trial updates: At the Minnesota trial JP Martin’s Neala took third place in the Open, Bruce Eide’s Jackson took fourth in the Puppy and Ray Jack’s Cy took fourth place in the Puppy. Last week at the Heartland trial, Cy won the First Place in the puppy stakes.  All were handled by Morgan.

 

April 5, 2014

It’s a busy trial schedule this week as Morgan and the crew attend three competitions.  This weekend’s field trial is hosted by the Minnesota ESS Club and will be held at 9908 34th Avenue SE, Owatonna. On Thursday and Friday they will be at the St Croix Valley ESS event being held at the same farm.  

 

Next weekend we are home hosting our Northern Minnesota ESS Club trial at the Al Grosland farm, 2990 133rd Street SW, Ellendale, MN.   Yes, this is a change of location because Hunts Point is much too snow covered. 

About eighty springers will be in competition at each of these trials and I encourage you to come out and watch these dogs in action. Look us up by the red vehicles under our American Flags.

The Minnesota Heartland English Springer Spaniel Club (MHESSC) will host its spring field trial on March 29th and March 30th, 2014 at the Al Grosland farm, 2990 133rd Street SW, Ellendale, MN.   Morgan and his road crew will be in attendance.  Look for the red vehicles with the American flags. 

 

With the beginning of the Minnesota trial season our weekends are filled. We will not be conducting any Saturday training.  However, Morgan is training at the kennels during the week. If you would like to work with him, give him a call, 218.820.8815, to arrange a weekday for you and your dog.  

 

March 20, 2014

We are looking forward to training this Saturday, March 22.  Forecast states it may be a little cool, we will have the hobo fire burning brightly.   We will begin around 8:30.  See you then!

 

Morgan wraps up his Midwest tour at the Nebraska trial this weekend. He is grateful for the contributions of his road crew, JP Martin, Mark Rysavy, and Steve Krueger. The dogs are running pretty well and gaining a lot of good experience.

Among the awards given at the recent NMESSC banquet was the 2013 Midwest Interclub High Point Amateur Stakes, earned by Neala  owned and handled by JP Martin. The trophy, sponsored by the Northeast Wisconsin Spaniel Club, was presented by NWSC representative Lynn Christen.  This beautiful cup is in memory of NWSC members: Emmett Anderson, Corky Jarstad, Fred Neville, Ralph Sheldon, and Vance Van Laanen.  It was designed and made by the company in Chicago that does the Oscars.

 

The trophy is an Antique Silver Cup which is hand spun from solid brass and electroplated silver on a round black base with a dog on top carrying a bird. This is awarded to the dog with the highest points accumulated in the Amateur Stakes in the Midwest Interclub area. Congratulations to Neala  and her owner/operator JP!    

 

This marks the third consecutive year a NMESSC club member and dog has earned this award, Ed Zollar and Prez in 2012 and JP and Neala in 2011.

Morgan and JP Martin have arrived in Colorado to begin the March trial season. On Thursday and Friday Morgan will compete in  the Northern Colorado Springer Spaniel Club  cocker trials with Kevin Gadde’s Smoke. 

 

On Saturday and Sunday the NCSSC is conducting their springer trial. Morgan has a trailer load of puppies and all age dogs for that trial. JP will be running Neala and Marlo in the amateur.  All trials are near Fort Lupton, Colorado.  Good luck to all participants.

Dear Mark and Sophie :

 

We had a family with three boys like us visiting this past weekend at the hunting camp.  Their boys fell in love with Gwinner. Their parents want to get them a dog. Do you have any really good natured dogs ready to go; meaning little farther along than just started.   Would not need to be a high powered hunter.  If you have any send me pictures and some info and I will get ya’ll connected.

 

Attached are a couple of pictures of Chex quail hunting, I was entertaining customers and she performed really well.

 

Hope all well

Best Regards

Bob

The next two litters due at Pine Shadows, LACY and SARA, are both looking like they will have pups. They are both eating well and staying in good shape. LACY is bred to HIGGINS and SARA is bred to REBEL.

Because of the deep snow in the switch grass, Morgan is doing board flushes and yard drills with the trial dogs and working the pups on retrieving and perfecting the delivery to hand. Training dogs is much more than field work.  Many important little things can be worked on with the yard drills. Never miss an opportunity to train your dog, - in the house, in the yard, and traveling, any situation when you are with your dog.

 

 

 

 

February 24, 2014

The switch grass field at Pine Shadows has reached it limit of snowfall. We will be suspending this Saturday's training until we get some snow melt.

Because of the snow and the March training/trial group trips in March the next date for Saturday training will be on hold. We are looking forward to training in Nebraska and Kansas.

 

Our training trip this past weekend at Daybreak was a tremendous success. No snow, clean grass fields, heavy swales and draws and some tree rows produced many pheasants as well as flushing herd of deer. We were able to introduce some more folks to the serene world of Daybreak.

 

 

 

February 16, 2014

 

Awards were given for the year’s Fun Trial results.

And JP Martin received the Midwest High Point trophy from Lynn Christen of the NE Wisconsin Club.

 

 

 

Thanks to all who attended the NMESSC Annual meeting and banquet.  Almost 40 people came for the awards and wonderful slide show of all the club activities throughout the year. Lynn Peterson is our cameraman and he does a wonderful job putting the slide show together.

This upcoming weekend we are planning a three days training trip to Daybreak. There will not be any training at Pine Shadows this Saturday.

Saturday training will commence again on March 1st at Pine Shadows.

The spring trial circuit will start for Morgan on March 6th with the Northern Colorado cocker trial then on to the Springer trials in Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Nebraska.

On Friday we received a note that Pine Shadows Tatum was laid to rest. Tatum lived with Michael and Catherine Blassey. She had come into their household as a young, well-mannered hunting and house dog. Unsure of what to expect from a dog in their household, Michael and Catherine set the rules with which Tatum adjusted to quite nicely.

 

Never over stepping her bounds, always the polite quite family member she enjoyed a great life of helping Catherine while she worked at home and Michael while he cut wood, walked down the trails, retrieved many ducks from the ponds, numerous grouse in northern Minnesota and countless numbers of roosters hunting with the Pine Shadows Huntsmen in South Dakota.

 

A great little girl who enlightened the lives of Michael and Catherine.  We are very blessed that Tatum was able to bring Michael and Catherine into the Pine Shadows fold.

 

 

January 17, 2014

This Saturday Morgan will be conducting a session on growing up bird dogs for  the Pheasants Forever State Convention at the Prairie’s Edge Casino in Granite Falls.

 

His training partners John Pauly and Mark Rysavy will be assisting him. Look for them Saturday morning. And yes, there will be puppies!  

 

 

 

January 5, 2014

Happy New Year!

 

The first Saturday for training will be next week, Jan 11th.  The hobo fire will be warming; hopefully the weather will be on our side also. 

 

Should Saturdays not always work out for you, remember Morgan and the crew are training daily and welcome your attendance.

 

Give him a call ahead to find out exact times and so forth, 218.820.8815
