Progeny of Lapphaugen’s H. Moulin

8 pups born 28.02.2004 (by Wingfield Warrior)

The Males:

ARAGORN – A very powerful and hard running dog with excellent ranging. The owner originally purchased him purely as a trial dog, but Aragorn has also become his main hunting dog. He had a fantastic first hunting season in 2004 and has also fully displayed his talent in field trials. I look much forward to follow him at championship level in the time ahead.

ANDRETTI – His owner claims he was the boldest pup he has ever had, but as it has turned out he has also been a very trainable dog. At 2 1/2 years old he is now working well, mainly on pheasants, at Bendigo Station. “Tay” as he is called, has sired a litter with Berryfield Frill (also a daughter of Woody), giving 6 female pups.

ATWOOD – Stylish, very good looking dog. Working endangered species for Department of Conservation (DOC), he has been trained to work in close contact with his owner. However he is constantly displaying an excellent nose and he is probably the best working dog on kiwi, kakapo and brown teal within the organisation.

BEBETO – A very similar dog to half-brother Atwood, good-size tricolour, trained to work in close contact and with excellent bird work. I have hunted over Bebeto on a couple of occasions this season, and he showed some very mature work for a 14 month old. He ran in a Novice trial already at six months old, and performed well in an Open trial in August this year.

BOYD – Quite similar type like half-brother Aragorn. Before the hunting season started he was staying with Tom Zachariassen for a while to get his retrieving polished. Boyd was the setter featured in TV One’s programme Country Calendar in July 2005. His main game in the South Island is Californian quail.

Both dogs work for Department of Conservation.

The Females:

ARWEN – Bought by a 16-year old (now 18) who is a passionate hunter. Both the owner and his father have been impressed by Arwen, describing her as having great natural instincts. She has produced some excellent pheasant shooting for them, and hopefully we’ll soon also see her in field trials.

ARIET – One of the biggest talents from Moulin’s first litter. She showed already from an early age some excellent work for Department of Conservation. Unfortunately she died in an accident and never got to reach her full potential.

ANGULERA – Owned by a fly fishing guide in the South Island, who was very impressed with Angulera’s natural huntig abilities on pheasant, quail and ducks. He also purchased Bjork from Moulin’s second litter.

ANYA – Sold to a family in Rotorua, where father and sons are hunters. Anya replaced their old setter and she is a dog full of action. I have a suspicion that she hasn’t necessarily been the easiest of dogs all the time.

ALINGHI – Possibly the best female in the first litter. She was sold to an American living in Australia, who has converted from spaniels to setters. He has done an excellent job with her hunting the big Australian fields on stubble quail. She has now also started in her first field trials and we’ll hear much more from her. Alinghi is the pup from that first litter who I think most resemble her father Woody.

BLAZE – For a long time I was considering Blaze to be the pup I would keep from the B-litter. In the end she was sold to the same people who earlier had Ariet, to work endangered birds in Fiordland for Department of Conservation.

BLUE BELLE – “Bella” is the pup I have kept in the kennel. Both her looks and her personality are definitely a mix from both her parents. I think she is the most stylish dog I have had in the field. She has showed a lot of natural ability and she is hunting with a lot of passion. If I should put the finger on something, it would be that she could be a little bit bigger.

BLUE TOKEN – This female looks very much like a replica of her father (Warrior). She was sold to the South Island, mainly to be hunting Californian quail. I last saw her when she was five months old. That time the owner also had the opportunity to shoot a couple of quail over Warrior. Since then Token has perhaps been the earliest developed pup from the B-litter. From what I am told she has from an early age done everything by the book, giving the owner and his son a good first season.

BREEZE – Another Department of Conservation dog, in training on kiwis in particular, based at Trounson Kauri Park. The owner, who also has Berryfield Flirt, has also received some assistance in the training from Atwood’s owner.

BJÖRK – Same owner as Angulera, who is hunting pheasant, quail and ducks with his dogs.

BRITT – Was in the hands of one of the most experienced dog trainers you’ll find anywhere, the late Tom Zachariassen who was 94 yrs old when he got Britt as a pup. She was trained to perfection, both to retrieve and to range and find birds. Her main game in the South Island is Californian quail and she is now in the hands of a hunter whom in younger years, with his brother, had Zachariassen as a mentor.
