Rabble Rouser...Next generations...
There is a thread on this board titled "Rabble Rouser Pup's First Night Out. It basically was started to talk about a young, up and coming male, now named Nite Ch. PR T-Top Northwood's Yankee.
Yank is out of Dual Gr. Ch. PR T-Top Rabble Rouser and a female called PR River Bottom Spice and both Rabble and Spice were out of Gr. Nite Ch. PR T-Top Tree Talkin' Red Rat.
I was going back over that thread and some names came to mind...in no specific order.
Yank - Haze
Leinie - Cherry
Smoke - Sue
Dagger - Locket
Ray - Case
Shelly - Shaker
Rage - Bo
Kage - Sis
Hurnie - Silk
Renegade - Griz
Red - Flirt
Cid - Shadow
Dark Man - Moose
Rufus - Ruby
Sal - Rocky
Baker - Rose
There are 33 pups and dogs listed here and all are talked about or have pictures in that thread from just over the last two years, seeing as how Yank just turned two in December. All are connected by a common thread. Dual Gr. Ch. PR T-Top Rabble Rouser. Those dogs and pups are produced by 12 different females.
Rabble is gone but the T-Top line of hounds lives on all across the country in some very nice young hounds still to make a mark in our breed.
There are others mentioned in that thread, like Rabble, Rat, Raven, Rocky, Spook, Biscuit, Rebel, Babe, Bomber, Belle, Rusty, Sam, Gus and on and on it goes. Although not sharing the common thread that is Rabble Rouser as their sire, they are all still connected from the very foundations of their being, going back to very common ancestors up close, within 4-5 generations.
As we start forward into this new and exciting future with Yank and some other young hounds, I would simply say that what I mention here should point out what seems so obvious to me personally but evidently continues to elude so many...the objective of a breeding program is to produce consistency...which means to produce success time and time again...over and over again with cross after cross, whether line bred or outcrossed.
We simply provided the proof through training and hunting stories and feedback from our peers, through wonderful times shared and experiences documented for all to see.
What was the goal?
To put together crosses and to produce hounds that can and will meet the widest range of needs for different kinds of owners all across the country. There have been some oustanding crosses made with a T-Top hound as part of the foundation...please don't overlook these crosses and ignore the consistency at which success is realized with hounds from this line.
We will be out and about this year with some real nice young hounds...we hope to meet and compete with many of you and look forward to making new friends and to opening new eyes to the Redbone breed and the T-Top line of hounds.
Watch for us somewhere down the road and believe this...that if you draw us...we'll be packin' a coon dog.
Unrealistic expectations are a roadblock to success, judge your dogs by what they are ready to give not by what you wish they'd do.
