Whelping House

In 2012 we have added something very special to our farm, a 960 sq foot whelping house.  It has turned out to be something I wish I had done a long time ago.  I absolutely LOVE having a place totally dedicated to my dogs/puppies.  The building is made of concrete block, and is fully insulated.  Inside we have 8 stalls to house puppies or dogs, whatever the need be.  Each stall is 4'8" by 8'8" inside and 5' by 10' outside.  The inside is heated & cooled to keep a constant temperature.  We also have a bathroom & laundry area, a storage room & the front room has a large area for the puppies to play if it is raining outside.  We have 24/7 video surveillance which is awesome, I am able to view the puppies at all times on my tv, computer, and phone, even if I am away from home.




AKC Show Conformation Titles

In 2014 we started out on a quest to achieve an AKC show Conformation title.  And in July 2014 we are proud to announce we own an AKC Champion Pointed Girl.  Piper is a chocolate female that is Champion sired, she is now Champion Pointed & also has her AKC JH title & CGC title.  Piper is everything I've ever wanted in a dog!!!  She not only looks good, she excels in hunting as well. We are soooooo proud of her and all she has accomplished!!  We now have Piper's daughter Jolene & her son Magnum as part of our breeding program.

AKC Junior Hunter Titles

In 2011 we started out on a quest to achieve AKC JH titles on 2 of our dogs.  And in February 2012 we are proud to announce we have achieved that goal. 
Piper is a chocolate female that is Champion sired & Champion pointed, so she has the best of both worlds going for her, she is a show conformation female and now has her AKC JH title. 
Our very own Riviera is a fox red female from Copper & Brut.  She is a gorgeous field bred girl that now has her AKC JH title.

Our beginnings...

Ricky & I have been married for 30 years, we have one son, Derrick.  We own 60 acres of land in Hart County, Georgia.  We built our poultry farm in 1999, at that time we owned Meg.  Meg is the reason we fell in love with the labrador retriever breed.  She was such a wonderful dog, a great swimmer, retriever, and she was my husband's best friend.  Meg was the mother to our very first litter of labs in 2001.  We enjoyed the puppies so much that we kept Sparks from that litter.  Libby came shortly after.  Meg passed away May 1, 2012 at the age of 14.  She will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Pics Around the Farm

  These are our chicken houses.

 

Here is the inside of one of the chicken houses, there are over 10,000 hens & about 800 roosters in here, the house is 450 feet long.  The chickens stay with us for about 10 months.  The eggs are hatching eggs, they are picked up 2 times a week & taken to a hatchery in Athens, Ga to be hatched and the chicks are taken to a broiler farm to be raised out.  We gather close to 9,000 eggs a day in each house.

 

This is our pond that we enjoy so much. 

 

  I absolutely love this picture, I took it one afternoon while the sun was setting, Molly, Benelli & Lucy are all racing to get the stick.  Another of their favorite things to do.

 

 

  This is Conrad, we are very proud of him, he is a trained Search & Rescue dog that lives in Fannin County.  He has been successful on numerous occassions.  He has found an alzheimer patient who had wondered away from his home and would have died if Conrad had not found him.  He has helped the police track down a burglar also.  Richard takes him to the schools to teach safety.  He is an awesome dog.  Thanks to Richard & Brenda for keeping us updated on him.
