Buckhurst sailor of E, who became the sire of Ch Nano of Arraghglen, and Saraht of Eaglescrag, who was sold as a puppy but returned to her breeders at the age of 18 mounts. Sarah, mated to Ch Sulhamstead Max, produced Ch Clindhu of E (the first Eagelscrag champion), Swedish Ch Driella of E and Ch Sulhamstead Morna of E. In February 1962 Song produced a litter by Ch Sulhamstead Remus which included Mary and Moira of E. Mary went to America whre she becam the first Eaglescrag Champion in that country, and Moira stayed at home, became a champion (on the same day as Clindhu gained his title), and produced, by Ch E Clonroe of Nendrum (son of Song's litter sister Carol, by Max), Ch Red Wully of E. Wully was a great ambassodor for the breed, as he was a regular traveller on the London Underground and did a lot of advertising work, as well as going reserve best hound ar Crufts under Joe Braddon. The Eaglescrag hounds were noted for their wonderful temperaments and Clindhu and Wully both had this in full measure. Ruth has always felt very strongly that they were so lucky to be able to access the best breeding lines of the day from Ouborough and Sulhamstead, which had become well established before the 1939 - 45 was and had managed to keep going through that war, even though so much of the Ouborough kennel had been lost to hardpad towards the end of it. She also gave great credit to Rory, who she felt had done so much to improve the temperaments of Wolfshouds in the UK. In the early days Leslie and Ruth lived in Hertforshire, but Leslie was of Welch descent and took his degree in agriculture and zoology at Aberystwyth, and in the early ;70s they moved to Wales, to a farm in Dyfed.
They felt that the hounds needed space and so the farm was perfect in this repect. They had two sons, one who became a vet and the other an electronics engineer. Back to Ch/Ir Ch Carol of E in Noreen's Nendrum kennel. Mated to Max, she produced Clonroe, who was flown to the Jenkins from Belfast at the age of about 12 weeks. He gave them their first taste of the big ring by winning BOB at Cruft in 1966, and was the sire of serveral champions. Clonroe's litter sister, Ir Ch Corrie of nendrum, was mated to Brave Knight and produced the Jenkins, E Alice of Nedrum. Alice mated to Clindhu produced Ch Caio of E, and mated to Ted Wully she produced Ch Fintan of E, their first BIS winner - at Blackpool in 1973. Alice mated to Clonroe produced Ch Conchessa of E, and Conchessa to Sulhamstead Woodside Finn produced Ch Clodagh of E. Two Bitches came into the kennel from outside, from a Clindhu daughter, bred by Elsie James, Ch E. Cooleen of Boroughbury. She was mated to Wully and a bitch, Amber was retained from the litter. Amber mated to Caio produced Ch E Kelt. The other bitch was Thorwick Rossan of E, a daughter of Din Jo of Boroughbury (a son of Clonroe). Rossan mated to Caio produced Ch E. Toby, and Kelt and Toby mated together produced E Katy, who was exported to America where she became a Champion and produced, by Am Ch Wildisle Warlock, Fitzarran Yankee who was imported back to Eaglescrag.
