Cafferty is the result of a dream mating between Knots and Crosses by Quincegrove and Streamside’s Ladybird Quincegrove. He is a handsome larger working springer who takes everything in his stride. He really feels like he has an older head on his shoulders.

Streamside’s Ladybird Quincegrove (Gadget)

Born 25th April 2018

Gadget joined Quincegrove from Norway as a puppy. Her pedigree combines the best of UK, Irish, and European Springer breeding.

Gadget is a stylish hunter and gentle retriever who is now a regular member of the beating, picking up, and dogging-in team. She has an excellent off switch and is steady no matter how busy a drive is.

She started her competitive career by taking 1st place in Meon Valley Working Spaniel Club's Novice cold game test. She has also gained her Kennel Club Working Gundog Certificate on Dummies. In 2021 she was awarded two COMs in Novice Field Trails, both times in very testing conditions with few dogs finishing.

Gadget is our first dog for some time who has been able to compete at Crufts as she is undocked. She took 1st place in the BASC Working ESS bitch class in 2020 and 2022 as well as winning the Field Trial Bitch class in the breed ring.

Gadget was mated with Rebus in 2021 and produced a wonderful litter who are all showing natural talent and excellent temperament.

Gadget is fully health tested beyond KC ABS requirements.

Hips 2:5, Elbows 0, Eyes clear Feb 2022, PLA Grade 0 Feb 2022, DNA clear Fuco, PRA, PFK, AMS.

Rumour Has It for Quincegrove (Rumer)

Born 14th June 2011

Rumer has been a real pleasure to train. She has real drive and pace but can switch off when required.

She exceeded all our expectations by winning a Novice Field trial and gaining awards as high as 3rd place in Open Trials. She also has her Working Gundog certificate on Game and Working and Water Test Awards.

Rumer is now retired from competition and has proven to be a very reliable beating and picking up dog. She has showed skill and determination on hard runners and retrieves from land and water.

Rumer was chosen to join our kennel after many years of watching her dam and extended family working and competing. She has raised two fantastic litters and we have kept a puppy from each. She has now been neutered.

Hips 6:4, Elbows 0, Eyes clear (inc gonio) 2016, AMS, Fuco, PRA (cord 1), and PFK DNA clear.

Quincegrove’s Little Secret (Secret)

Born 13th June 2014

Secret is an exciting, stylish hunter and a soft mouthed retriever and has carved out a place for herself in my beating and picking up team.

Secret trains in agility once a week and we enter the occasional independent show.

She has been fully health tested with great results, but unfortunately had to be neutered without having a litter.

Litter eye screening clear, Eyes Clear (inc gonio) 2015, AMS, Fuco, PRA (cord 1), and PFK DNA hereditary clear, Hips 5:3, elbows 0.

Knots and Crosses by Quincegrove (Rebus)

Rebus is now retired from working and stud duties. He continues to enjoy walks, pottering around the field, and a bit of retrieving.

Rebus had awards in working tests, placed and won at water tests and entered field trials as well as beating and rough shooting. It has been a pleasure to see his many puppies go on to be much loved pets and working dogs.

Fully health tested; eyes clear 2020, gonioscopy PLA grade 1, hips 3:3, Clear by parentage for Fucosidosis, DNA clear for Phosphofructokinase deficiency, AMS, and PRA cord-1 mutation.

Everlasting Spirit (Quincy)

Born 14th August 2003

Died : 4th March 2020

We said our final goodbyes to Quincy in March 2020 at the grand old age of 16 1/2.

It was a privilege to share such a long time with him, and it is a comfort to know he lives on in his many puppies, grandpuppies, and beyond. His son Rebus and his grandaughter Secret do thingsthat remind us of every day.

Quincy has done a bit of everything; beating, roughshooting, fun agility, obedience training and Dash 'n' Splash. He has also been to Crufts and had several placings in the Working Gundog class in the BASC ring. After a 4 year absence we decided he should have one last day out at Crufts and were delighted that he was awarded First Place in the Working Gundog Class for English Springer Dogs!

Not a bad result for an 11 1/2 year old dog who had just completed another season of beating and dogging in. Quincy retired from gundog work at 13 and enjoyed life on the sofa.

A large, handsome liver and white dog Quincy also carried the gene to produce striking tri-colour pups. Quincy was hip scored (5:3) and eye tested including gonioscopy. He was DNA clear for Fucosidosis, PFK and PRA cord-1.

Quincegrove Life on Mars (Mars)

Born : 25th April 2015

Died : 30th June 2016

Our perfect boy Mars was sadly killed in a road accident leaving a huge hole in both our hearts and our kennel.

Mars was a larger stamp of working springer with a wonderful laid back attitude to life, but drive and style when hunting.

He completed a field trial at 18 months old with several flushes and retrieves, and represented Leconfield Working Spaniel Club in the Skinners Interclub competition.

Mars sired two fantastic litters.

Mars was Fully Health Tested; Hips 4:6, Elbows 0, KC/BVA eye test pass including gonioscopy (grade 0), DNA clear Fuco, PRA Cord-1, PFK, and AMS.

His memory lives on in his son Cluedo (Sussexoak Cluedo by Quincegrove) who reminds us of Mars every day.
