Riggins White Knight FT HOF, handled by Hoyle Eaton FT HOF
I first discovered the American Field magazine in the bathroom as a teenager. When I found Riggins White Knight within its pages I fell in love......darn well hard with the longest running sporting periodical. I especially loved those Xmas issues that have the wonderful articles & magnificent artwork.
It is clear that past magnificence is still order of the day in pointing dogs regarding lasting success. We look for it in our dogs. We must have it in our peoples to have high-class field trials.
The below items are photos from past AMERICAN FIELD magazines. They are not in year sequential order. They are in an "as added" order with newest on top & will be transposed to a WORD document or enlarged as soon as possible. All but the last two selections come from the Bateman Kennels AMERICAN FIELD collection. The last two come from the Boggs Collection. All of these FIELD articles date between 1957-1965. When time permits and/or volunteers type all of the below will be changed to accompanying verbatim WORD documents.
This is very likely the first AMERICAN FIELD cover to be graced by
the Vizsla & unless discovered otherwise may well be THE only
time AMERICAN FIELD had a Vizsla featured on the front page. That issue's star is Joan & Charles Hunts' Ch Csickas of Goncoltanya who was the second Vizsla show Champion finishing one day
after Ch Miklos Schloss Herzog HOF. He was the winner of the Puppy Stake at the first Magyar Vizsla Club of America (MVCOA) regional
field trial held at Fort Snelling in September of 1955.
Whenever one goes spelunking inside of olde, in this case the late fifties AMERICAN FIELD magazines, there are always unexpected treasures. This particular rock=turning occasion scarfed up a most unusual offering on the front page of a late fifties AMERICAN FIELD cover. It was an ad for dog food & the super duper brag was that the female Pointer whelped three litters totalling thirty five puppies in three back to back seasons.
Can you imagine? Yoiks~
This may well be THE first time a Vizsla was nominated
for an AF Futurity. Keepin our eyes open, we are...
