Mike Crouse ~ The Canadian Prairies with Freddie Epp
Many thanks to Kentucky breeder-trainer Mike Crouse for his thoughts and memories of training on the Canadian prairies with Freddie Epp. I met Mike at Dixie Plantation in January prior to the start of the Continental Derby where he was competing. It was my first time at Dixie and I spent most of the day photographing the grounds. I finally had a chance to visit with Mike the evening prior to the start of the Derby and asked him to speak on a topic close to his heart. This podcast presentation coincides with the time many trainers are preparing to head north to the prairies.

Sharp-tailed grouse, often called “chickens” by dog trainers. They are
a different species of grouse than actual Greater or Lesser Prairie Chickens.
