Famous stud dogs

Post by baun » Mon Feb 20, 2017 11:55 am

I saw some statistiks about how many litters and puppies some of the famous stud dogs have breed. Also it talks about how many FTCH they have delivered.

I believe FTCH Kettlestang Comet have delivered 3-400 pubs and about 15-20 FTCH's - about 5 % - that is much more that other famous stud dogs that have delivered more that 1000 pubs and even more that 2000 pubs.

So why was Kettlestang Comet not used more that he was?

Maybe he only believed in drinking in moderation...

Comet was a real producer and one of the best if you have seen the stats, Ian ran him and he saw a good few bitches in his time, as did his brother Clipper who some would say wasn't used enough.......

Always thought Clipper was the better dog.

Kettlestang Clipper devivered about 300 pubs - 3 FTCH 1% long way to Comet. So maybe a better dog but maybe not a better stud dog

Different times with very different media, a lot these days are over hyped by people who know sod all to be honest so get used much more and to much less quality bitchs.
If it was easy it wouldn't be so much fun.

Although particularly blunt even by James' standards, this is about right.

Chould that be an answer to why Kettlestang Comet was not used so much as stud. Sorry I dont get it.

You also have to think of the other dogs which were around at that time i.e

Laganmill Maestro
Milshadow Aster - Irish Championship Winner
Clarburgh Art - in the same kennel
Anahoe Ernie
Nant-y-Bwla Ricky
Roughburn Jet
Rytex Roel
Webbswood Stoker

Alot of quality studs around to choose from at the time and having Art in the same kennel as him probably contributed to that, although he still saw his fair share.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Yes could be the explanation.

Comparing Clarburgh Art about 2000 pups and about 40 FTCH = 2% and Kettlestang Comet about 400 pups and about 20 FTCH = 5%. My figures are maybe not 100% right but gives the picture.

I just wondered if people looks to much at the dog it self and to little at how they breed.
