Home Acres Allspice, or Sally as she was called, was whelped on October 20, 1975, by the breeder/owners Bobby and Barb Youngs, the product of a mating of HOF Ban-Dee and FC B’s Sandy Valley Sassafrass. During her lifetime, she was also owned by Don Young, Jim Holman and Harry Robb. Bobby and Jim Holman trained and handled her in field trials. She was a keen hunting companion to Don, his son Ross, and many others who recognized her natural and intense instincts. In November 1988, Bobby and Barb laid her to rest with her son R-U National Champion Home Acres Risk.
Sally was one of the top, if not the top, producing bitches of hour winners in the Brittany breed. The list of her progeny includes Hall of Famers, numerous National Champions and too many hour winners to count. Nine years after her death, almost 20 % of the dogs running in the ABC national championships could be traced back to her.
As a juvenile, Sally competed in puppy and derby stakes showing promise as a tough all age competitor. She was usually lost to the front on course and when found was pointing or chasing birds. Sally was too bold, too smart and too certain to ever learn to compete in structured field trials. HOF handler Jim Holman acquired Sally as she left her derby age and was heard calling her that “black hearted bitch” with admiration and some affection. He recognized her great strengths that demanded to be propagated.
Sally’s legacy was her production record and contribution to the Brittany breed. During her lifetime, she was bred 5 times to 3 different sires (Copper Creek Bobb, Allair’s Evereddy and Kentucky White Lightening) passing on her loving disposition, intense bird hunting and all age run. She has become known as a “Blue Hen” producer as her progeny continued their accomplishments thru every generation and even today.
In the first generation, Sally produced 11 field winners with 4 field champions totaling 17 one-hour wins. The most notable were Home Acres Risk, The Magic Moment, Scattman and Jug. Kentucky White Diamond and Judy Judy produced many field winners and HOF dogs.
Home Acres Risk - 4 hour wins, 1985 U.S. Open Championship Winner, 1986 R-U National Champion. He produced 9 FC, 8 AFC, 1 DC among them hour winner FC Hybritten’s Little Rick and HOF Flatwood’s Tiger.
