Rancho Fiasco Working Terriers

We have a lot of requests for a website and this seems like the next best thing. We will post information about happenings around Rancho Fiasco including hunting stories, litters, pictures of some of our terriers and various trials and events we participate in.

West Meets East

Last Thursday and Friday I made a trip to Maryland for a Board Meeting and for a day or two of field work.
I took Knotty with me and as usual, she was lots of fun to hunt as she has more energy than have ever imagined.
Over the two days we managed to get after about 8 groundhogs. These are 2 of them. My friend PatrickB with his 2 trusty sidekicks, Mountain and Sailor along with Knotty made a tough combination for the groundhogs to overcome. A good number of them fell victim to terrier and spade.

Dinner Time

This has nothing to do with working terriers but it was a humerous picture. We have a very enthusistic group of terriers when it comes to eating. They are likely to eat most anything that won't eat them. Will try to limit this to
more working information and photos.

Rake's Neice

This is Fergie, a Static puppy that is 9 weeks old. She has in her possession her first hunting trophy. Everybody better get back and stay away.

Here is another photo of Rake. This coon was taken down by him last winter and was humanly dispatched


Rake who is a son of Polar is just a terrific all around terrier. In the photo he is pictured on the left next to his sister Static. They are just a little tired as they had been working a very large raccoon in an old beaver sette which was one of the largest settes I have seen in this country. Nearly 100' in length and almost 50' wide, this sette can hold a large number of raccoons. My friend Harold who discovered it has taken 7 and 8 coons at one time out of it. Rake has endless enthusiasm and will hunt all day long. He is an excellent baying terrier but will not hesitate for a moment to grab a quarry and haul it on out for your inspection. Any quarry that thinks they can push him out of the way to bolt will have a rude surprise in store for them as he is a powerful terrier of subatantial size, yet spanable enough to get in after groundhogs.
