“Beauty is as beauty Does”


The Russian word borzoi means "swift"; oxota means "hunt". After a few years of running borzoi, we've come to appreciate their superior ability to execute their original function: coursing live game over rough terrain in cold weather. We believe that a good-looking borzoi isn't necessarily a good borzoi, so our emphasis and passion are on function; quite simply, on proven performance.

We have been admirers of borzoi since 1975 when we befriended a neighbor that had a pair. We are delighted to have these talented and versatile hounds make our lives complete.

Our hounds regularly venture off-property for training and competition, including open field coursing (OFC) for its singular ability to test for function. No other endeavor demands such fitness, speed, and stamina, nor so clearly calls on a hound's body and soul.
