Derby Winners

Both Indian Head Pistol (Pete) and Indian Head Intrigue (Jill) are coming along nicely. Although not completely finished on their birdwork, both have the necessary ground game to be competitive at the derby-age level; which is approximately two-years-old and younger. At a recent field trial Pete and Jill placed 1st and 3rd respectively (the second place dog is not shown in the picture). Derby's are not required to be steady to wing and shot in the fall, but come spring they should be "broke" and act mannerly at the flush and shot; which is to say, they don't break and chase the bird as it's flushed and a shot fired, they wait to be released.
