Broom Hill Dan (dog, liver/white, w: April 14, 1910, English import to U.S., FDSB 33608)

Broom Hill Dan
"Broom Hill Dan"
-- Scanned from The Pointer as a Show Dog by Lola Macdonald Daly. Caption reads: "Broom Hill Dan. Photo, Hedges, Lytham. Apart from his tremendous influence on pedigrees of present-day British show dogs, Dan, after going to America in 1910, sired, when nine years old, one of the most famous field trial bitches of all times -- Becky Broom Hill."



""Broomhill Dan" had a great influence on the breed in the USA after being exported to that country by J.T. Eggleston, father of Arthur Eggleston. -- Edmondson & Robertshaw, 1978, The Pointer


""Broom Hill Dan" was exported from this country (England) in 1910 by Mr. J.T. Eggleston, father of the present Arthur of that ilk. When Mr. A.E. Hochwalt judged him at Winnipeg in 1914, "Broom Hill Dan" impressed him (as he wrote later in his work on the breed) as "a big, muscular, well-developed Pointer, rather too large to suit American conceptions, but nevertheless a type that should nick well with some of our smallest home-bred bitches, which were showing a tendency towards weediness." "Broom Hill Dan" was, however, used very little until late in his life, when Mr. Fellows became interested in him, and suggested to the owner of "Nell's Queen Cott" that he use the English-bred dog. Dan was about nine years old when the mating took place, and in the litter was "Becky Broom Hill", which goes down in history as one of the outstanding figures ever seen at trials." -- Lola Macdonald Daly, The Pointer as a Showdog"


""Broom Hill Dan", a dog bred by J.T. Eggleston, of Scotland, and registered in the F.D.S.B. in this country by H.M. Giles, of Minneapolis. The dog did not attract much attention during his early years in America. He was shown to some extent in the Northwest and I remember judging him at a show in Winnipeg in 1914. He was whelped April 14, 1910, consequently, when I judged him he was just past four years old. The dog impressed me at that time as a big, muscular, well developed pointer, rather too large to suit American conceptions, but nevertheless he struck me than as being a type that should nick well with some of our smaller home-bred bitches which were showing a tendency toward weediness. "Broom Hill Dan", however, was used very little. Some years later H.F. Fellows became interested in him. ..." -- Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer
