    Borzoi are quite capable to rabbiting and can bring back rabbits live to hand, ask Raiye

    about Mims.

    You have to remember aswell that borzois were never used singley(sp)

    they was always used in 3's, two to run either side of the wolf and the other to bate at the back,

    the dogs were used to effectivly trip the wolf up and then to hold it.

    If you do a search on youtube, you will find a vid that shows wolf coursing in russia

    as it does still happen today, although the wolfs are effectivly pet wolfs,

    theres quite a few other vids of borzois hunting aswell.

    I agree completely, but my comment was really aimed at the people who would want to go out rabbiting at night and expect their hound to retrieve 20 bunnies. A borzoi would not be in to that at all, or at least none of mine would. They might bring one back but they'd settle down to eat the 2nd one :D All my borzois have been very capable hunters, and to see them work together to turn rabbits etc away from fencelines is amazing.

    Mims must be the exception then, as she will work as long as you have her out,

    she brings them all back, she retrives anything that you ask her to.

    For the poster who thought that silkens were all 'show not go' there was a lure coursing derby in Finland at the weekend, 200 dogs took part (17 breeds) and the highest scoring dog was a silken windhound :thumbsup: Keva Double M was Best in field over whippets, salukis and other sighthounds ;)

    I am so taken by this breed - they are amazing and I think I may well look into getting a silken windhound of my own one of these days :thumbsup:

    Now I know this may not be a great racing clip, but there are masses of clips of silkens racing really well on the net - I like this girl for her alternate version of hunting the lure :- ) :- )

    - watch through to her second go.
