The ’94-litter

In late Spring 1994 Jørgen and I drove to Holland with Agertoften Isabella, visiting Wim & Ilona Joustra who had the brilliant pointers Quenta and her daughter Marit and son Mohawk. All out of pure Italian lines. Like Isabella herself, her pups were born on 22nd July, Jytte & Jørgen’s wedding anniversary date. It turned out to be perhaps the best pointer litter I have ever seen.

Agertoften Santos, handled by Jørgen to several good results in Denmark, later sold to Eilif Tveitdal, Norway.

Wim Joustra with Mohawk at a trial we attended in Germany. This was a year after his pups were born and again he put on an excellent performance in the field. Amongst many top performances that he is remembered for, the most memorable is the fantastic brace against ES Francini’s Tango in the European Championship where Tango placed 2nd and Mohawk 5th.

Agertoften Søm was sold to Jørn Wølner in Norway, where he has sired 8 litters with 7 different bitches. Here he is photographed as a young dog with Wølner’s friend Svein Borgen (owner of English Setter kennel Høimyra) at the World Dog Exhibition in Belgium 1995, where Søm became best young Pointer.

Jørn Wølner also imported Søm’s sister Agertoften Senja. She eventually ended up with Sturla Bendiksen’s kennel Likkos, where she bred a couple of litters, and in Rune Malmberget’s Swedish kennel Mostodalen.

A sister called Sandra was sold to Holland, and another brother Scott came to Norway (see Scott’s own page).

Agertoften Silvia, here with Anne-Mette. I had her until she was 2 1/2 years old, then I left Denmark and she has been used as a brood bitch in kennel Agertoften (first with Texas av Frygne, then with Agertoften Kazan).
