Client progress meeting in london this afternoon, the job that pays the mortgage sadly. At least it allowed me some time on the train to make a start on the book my wife bought me for helping at her stand during the Gamefair at Michelham Priory a fortnight ago.
A very good first edition of "Practical Deer-Stalking" by the late great G Kenneth Whitehead. Signed by the great man himself and although a steal at £25 it was knocked down to the trade for £20. Thanks sweetheart it was worth it!
I was doubly impressed to find that the book has loads of line drawings. I shall use this a lot.
The local Firearms Enquiry Officer wandered all over our wood this afternoon and cleared it up to 6.5 from the ground. We can start managing the deer as well as missing the pheasants. They come soon so I need to e mail the game farm a map!
Back to the Game fair, and glad we are that we didnt set ourselves up for the CLA event this year;
The wife and I did alright for our first event, we made contact with dog training clubs and societies.
We sell good quality dog training equipment, her website is: http://www.dogtrainingsupplies.co.uk
Go on give it a whirl, if you know of any events, game fairs within a couple of hours drive of East Sussex then let us know, we have agreed to sponsor young handler events in a few local trials. This we think will help in two ways;
1. Not every school aged dog handler can afford the type of kit we sell.
2. We will gain exposure and also put a stall up at these events.
