The trip to Richmond, Indiana for Autumn Oaks is something we look forward to every year.  At this event, not only are we competing against some of the best dogs from around the country, but more importantly, it gives us the opportunity to visit with friends we have made through our reds.
 
This year was especially nice because we didn't have to load/unload dogs and ourselves several times a day ~ getting to the event and to a hotel later in the evening.  Instead, we were able to stay right on the fairgrounds with the motor home we recently bought.  It was nice to be able to relax and walk around the grounds after the events each day, visitng with people and dogs!
 
 
Sampson Hill Redbones was well represent at this year's event .  We had Holly, Sierra and Vinessa (who received ALOT of compliments from some very well known and respected redbone people!). Also there was Little Vin along with Lucy and Missy, pups from the Missy and Hondo breeding that are owned by Dale and Laurie Young.
 
 
During the trip this year, we also made some changes:
 
Hondo will be staying with Gene Allhands in Republic Missouri for a brief time.  Gene plans on breeding him while he's there.  With Hondo being close to 10 years old and with no other females in our kennel to breed this year, we felt it was important to let Hondo go and produce some pups off him.  I know Gene and his brother Rex are very excited about having Hondo with them.  Both men are as dedicated to the OW Hill line of reds as we are.
 
Dawn is now on a co-own with Lori Atwood of PA.  She will be living with Lori yet and she has plans to campaign her in 2006.  Lori & I also plan to do a repeat breeding to Hondo during the year.
 
Sierra is now owned by Rex Allhands in Missouri.  Rex is quite smitten over this girl  -  it only seemed natural to let Sierra go with him.  We know she is in very capable hands and Rex will enjoy her on the bench as well as her personality!
 
We also took two of the Dawn & Hondo puppies out to Autumn Oaks with us to deliver to Gene & Rex. These pups are with great owners and we know they have a great future ahead of them!
 
While at the event, Gene received a call from his wife, back home in Missouri, telling him that the litter out of Chief and his Storm female whelped her pups.  This is a repeat breeding for Gene. At Autumn Oaks last year (2004), I was able to see one of the females from the first cross. That girl was drop dead gorgeous!  So....Gene will be watching these pups grow out and we look forward to Gene offering us a little girl to be the next Sampson Hill addition! 
 
 
Looking Ahead ....
It seems whenever we come back from our trip to Oaks, we are already planning next year's adventure!  (I guess it's in our blood  lol).  We will continue to promote some of our finest hounds at this event. Next year we plan to also take part in the Breeder's Showcase.
 
 
Below are some pictures of the event...we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed attending Autumn Oaks!

Last but not least, throughout the weekend the thoughts and concern from many people at Autumn Oaks were felt and expressed for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. 
Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to all the families that have lost as a result of this disaster.
