Rules and Ramblings with Ken Murray

our hunting beagles

Here are some of the hunting beagles we have here at Five Forks. This certainly isn't all of them but it's a good sampling of our beagles. I see them every day so I'm used to them but people sure seem impressed when they come by. Even long time beagle breeders. Feel free to stop by some time even if it's just to say hello and see our beagles.

 

FC Five Forks Rockafeller

Rockafeller is sired by one excellent little FC male sired by Cocoa Star (FC SS Rocky Creek Buster.) His mother is Five Forks Stars Legacy. Rockafeller is 62.5% Cocoa Star. His grandmother is FC Tates Lady Bear. FC Cocoa Star is his gandsire on both sides.
The day I brought Rockafeller home from the starting pen is one I'll never forget. I knew he was special right off. He was born with the natural gift.  As good as he is at a trial, he is a rabbit hunters dream. To say it simply, he's the best I've ever seen.
Rockefeller got his first two wins before he was two years old. It was the first two trials he was entered in. Shortly after that I ruptured a disk in my neck and had to have surgery. That put dog running on a major hold! By February I was cleard to get out an go a bit. I took Rockafeller to four trials in February where he got another 3rd and 1st to complete his AKC gundog chanpionship.
The stud dog world is so full of hype and fantasy it would be hard for anybody to make heads or tails out of what some of these guys tell. The best I can offer you is to come see this dog shag a rabbit. Ask somebody who has been rabbit hunting with him. He don't get get strapped up with a collar! He don't need it.Rockafeller is super clean with his tounge and will be heard over the pack no matter what. He has one of the loudest caryying mouth I've heard. Breeding and owning this hound has truly been a blessing. Rockafeller solo's a rabbit at a 6.5 speed and will mix it up with any speed hounds.

AKC Gun Dog Field Champion Lady Bird


FC Lady Byrd is a an excellent specimen of the breed. She was raised right her in Five Forks by me. She is as straight on the line as you will hardly ever see for a dog that can run with some power. She has a heavy chop mouth that sounds like a male dog. She can dot out every track when it's hard to smell and then really pour on the pressure when things a smelling good. Lady Bird hasn't been trialed much due to bad luck. Her first season she missed most of it b/c her tail got really bad. I took a little off of it but it didn't heal enough to get her back in the briars that season. This last season she got to a 5 trials where she made the winners pack 4 times. Not bad for a two year old against some good ole rabbit dogs. I expect Lady Byrd to come into her own this season. She was one of those that just came here not running deer. She is out of Cocoa Star and a line breed Wayne Thompson female on the bottom.. Any one that knows much about beagle breeders will recognize Wayne as one of the all timr greats in the SPO movement. All in all Lady Byrd is one of my favorites. I'd assume not go hunting  if I didn't take her.
Lady Bird Finished for her AKC championship by winning 3 out of 5 s trials!!!!

FC Shaul's Oopsy Daisy

Daisy is by far the best rabbit dog I have ever breed. She gives 110% every time she goes out. Daisy is the hardest hunting "close" dog I have ever heard of. A friend of mine Ronald Phillips and I went hunting last season with Daisy. Ronald remarked as we watched Daisy work a thick briar patch, " I know Daisy is a good trial dog but she is even better for rabbit hunting." These are the kinds of words that make all the hard work we put into these dogs worth  it. Daisy is almost like a person. I'm not sure she knows she's a dog.

Daisy was born from one of my all time favorite bitches ET Blue Roan Bell. Bell was a super good one in her own right. When Daisy and her litter mates were pups a man from the city, Henry Shaw, came by with his children and wanted to buy a puppy (I'm sorry I can't remember his boys names.) They looked a the puppies and the little boys wanted little Daisy. Not wanting to disappoint the kids I didn't object and hey bought the pup.

I know they took good care of the pup and even started her and gave her plenty of running. When Daisy was about a year or so old Mr. Shaw called to let me know he would not be able to keep Daisy. He said he would sell her back to me. I left at once to go and meet him and get the pup back. I was so glad to have Daisy back. I started taking her rabbit hunting and found out quickly she was just as I had suspected, a very special dog. Daisy excelled at rabbit hunting. She quickly proved herself the equal of much older dogs.

Seeing how much talent Daisy had I quickly started conditioning her for the UBGF derby trials the following spring. I don't remember how many derby trials I ran Daisy in but she was first or second in nearly every one she entered. She easily won the UBGF outstanding derby award.

The following fall I started entering Daisy in the AKC licensed trials. Her first season she had one win and all the points she needed to finish. She was in the winners pack nearly every trial. Daisy was quickly making a name for her self amongst the field trial enthusiast. The following season Daisy got her second two wins in just three trials.

Daisy is the kind of dog you don't get to see every day. As I am writing this Daisy has 5 pups that I have high hopes for. Maybe they will have the same great qualities their mother has.
 
I revisited what I had to day about Daisy and let me tell you bout those pups. WOW. Rememer the names Five Forks Cocoa Blue.

Introducing new Field Champion:
FC Tate's Lady Bear

Tate's Lady Bear!

Lady Bear died on August 29, 2008. She was indeed a great rabbit hound. Lady Bear was bread by JW Orvin of Baxley Ga. JW and his Grandson Tate Carter are co owners of Lady Bear. The first time I saw Lady run a rabbit, I knew she was a special hound. I tried for an entire summer to buy Lady Bear. I don't have access to a lot of money and I offered Mr. JW $1500 for this super little Lady. Mr. JW was appreciative of the offer but told me he and Tate would just keep her. I later learned that JW had turned down nearly three time the amount I had offered. Well, I was persistent and finally Mr. J.W., knowing my only real concern was that Lady Bear be exposed to the beagling public so that everyone could see what this bloodline can produce, made me a wonderful offer. He said he would hand Lady Bear over to me for rabbit hunting and Field Trialing. I was to compete with Lady, raise a litter of pups and then return her to him. Needless to say, this was the perfect solution! I picked up Lady bear in August of 2005. She was a bit too heavy and out of shape as the rattle snakes around Baxley makes for treacherous running in the warmer months. I brought Lady home and started working her at once. The trial season was coming on quickly and there was not much time. I slowly started taking the weight off Lady Bear by feeding her a steady diet of rabbit tracks. Lady was ran in the heat of the day. I constantly pushed her to see just how good this girl was. Finally Thanksgiving came around and rabbit hunting season began. Lady was quick to make her self one of the dominant hounds in the rabbit hunting pack. She took quickly to producing rabbits from the South Carolina Pine thickets. By the time December rolled around Lady Bear was ready to win. She was taken to Rocky River Beagle club in NC where she came home with her first win. A few more weeks of rabbit hunting and then we were off to Robeson County Beagle club. Once again Lady was able to win the trial. January and February was filled with 2nd and 3rds for Lady Bear. She was super consistent but for one reason or another just kept coming up a little short. I ended the 05-06 trial season with only two of the three wins needed to make Lady Bear a Field Champion. Summer came and summer left. October was here and the 06 season was upon us. I took Lady Bear to Mountain Valley Beagle club where she got her final win and was named AKC field Champion. Lady Bear was a great hound! She was breed back to Cocoa Star and produced Five Forks Star's Legacy. Lady Bear and Star left Legacy with everything she needs to make her own mark on beagle history.

Lady is a litter mate to FC Tate's Yogi Bear.

I just cant say enough about Kay Lee. She is a gundog supreme in every way. Mr Doug Grant raised this little gem of a dog. Ken and Doug actually engineered the breeding of this bitch. She the kind everybody wants. Straight, quick and dpendable.

Super Dooper
Super Dooper's name tells her story. A great little bitch with a heart the size of Texas. Super Dooper won two trials back to back to gain her Gun Dog Field Champion title. The month before Ken said to me, " why don't we go ahead and add Super Dooper in with the rest of these old hounds for me to rabbit hunt, you ain't ever gonna finish her." I know Ken minored in phycology because six weeks later she is a Field Champion and he has a new "old dog" to take rabbit hunting.......Check out her pedigree.

Five Forks Star's Legacy

 
Legacy is the mother of FC Five Forks Rockefeller

Legacy
At just over a year old Legacy does every thing the way I like. Huge mouth, straigt on the line, and busy as a beaver getting ready for a flood. I mostly wanted to get her on the page to hilight the direction of our breeding program. Legacy is proof genetics are what's important.  Legacy is from two legends in our sport. FC Cocca Star and FC Tate's Lady Bear. I'm a better hunter for hunting behind them, I'm a better breeder from seeing thier offspring, I am a better judge from following them many hours in the field, I have a bigger heart by making room for these hounds in my faithfull breast. If you look close you can see a pattern. Legacy is the mother of Five Forks Rockafeller.
