little History On The Majestic's
strain of Majestic's go back 8 generations and trace back to 3
foundation hounds, Amos, Fancy and Ruby. They were Lee Brothers strain
of English that showed more Bloodhound influence and English Brighton
Bloodhound, a great working strain of Bloodhound.
All 3 hounds were trained and proven before being used in a breeding
program. Amos lived to age 13 1/2 and treed over 1600 coon. Ruby lived
over 12 years and treed over 1300 coon while Fancy lived to over 12 yr.s
and treed over 1200 coon.
outstanding 2nd generation stud was Buster. He produced many outstanding
coon and big game hounds. Buster lived beyond 12 years of age and treed
well over 1200 coon.
great 3rd generation stud was Sherlock. He was one of the most
exciting tree hounds ever. His tremendous fog horn brawl mouth could be
heard for miles around and would put a tingle in your back. He produced
many truly great lion and bear hounds.
of the prominent 4th generation studs was Smokey, a solid tree dog and
cooner. He produce many outstanding lion and big game hounds.
list goes on and on to the present. It should be noted that the original
Lee brothers & English Bloodhound mating's were not true hybrid type
crosses because the sires and dams had more similarities than
differences. For example; size, voice, temperament and natural trailing
ability. The dams were from many generations of treeing stock while the
bloodhounds had the intelligence to acquire the trait.
you look closely at most of the other Coonhound breeds, you will find
that they do not breed to a strict standard. There are large differences
in size, type, voice, temperament and hunting style. The only common
trait maybe color.
