English Setter Society of Wales.  Breed Championship Show. Sunday 8th April 2018.
I would like to thank the Welsh Society for inviting me to judge at their show and this my first time awarding CCs. I was made very welcome and had an enjoyable day. I would also like to thank my stewards who kept me in line.
I judged the dogs as they were presented on the day; on another day things could have been different.  I thank  the exhibitors for accepting my decisions.  I was looking for a balanced dog with sound movement.

MP (1) 1st Danks-Kemish’s Ravensett Work of Art at Alofrana.  This puppy stood alone. An orange nearly 8 months old.  Lovely head with good stop, gentle expression, dark eye and low set ears.  Good bone and tight feet.  Level topline and good rear angulation.  Moved steadily. PD  (4) A difficult class as some of the puppies were very unsettled. 1st BPD Lawson’s Wansleydale Dorian Gray. Stood out in this class.  Still at the leggy stage although full of quality.  Nine ,month old dark tri.  Head just right for his age.  Masculine without being overdone, good stop with dark eye and gentle expression.  Straight front and tight feet.  Good length of neck into well layed shoulders.  Good length of upper arm.  Good angulation front and rear.  Promising puppy.  Best mover in class. 2nd Harris and Bridgewater’s Bridgella’s First Edition with Konakakela. Orange dog puppy of a smaller type than the winner but another nice puppy.  Very pleasing correct head, dark eye and soft expression.  Straight front well angulated level topline kept on the move.  Well muscled, happy mover. 3rd Danks-Kemish’s Alofrana Miami Nights.  VD (5,1) 1st Colton’s Sodalitas High Havoc Over Ennydloc. Mature 7 year old orange dog of correct size.  Masculine head of good proportions, correct shaped dark eye with soft expression.  Straight front.  Good bone and depth of brisket. Was of correct weight and well muscled.. Good honest dog. 2nd Thomson’s Swannery Valentino’s Legacy to Caspellwynd ShCM  Blue dog of 10 years who looks good for his age.  Masculine head with dark eye and that lovely soft blue dog expression.  Good construction and in lovely coat and condition.  Still showed some sparkle on the move. JD (6) 1st Williams’ Bournehouse Stormy Sky Very attractive mature dark blue with appealing head with good stop and dark eye.  Low set ears and soft expression.  Straight front and good bone.  Good depth of brisket and spring of rib.  In loverly coat and condition. Kept his topline on the move. Well handled.  A very nice dog. 2nd Lawson’s Wansleydale Dorian Gray.   3rd Felton Blyth’sFelsett Bugatti Blue.  YD (4) 1st Schoneville and Derry’s Hawklawn Khamsin at Balvenie. Orange dog of 20 months.  Mature for his age.  Masculine head without being overdone.  Dark almond shaped eye, good straight front and rounded bone.  Tight feet good angulation front and rear.  Well muscled with good second thigh. Kept his topline on the move. 2nd Oliver’s Bramstorm Oberon. Orange dog of finer type – never the less a nice dog.  Elegant in profile attractive, finer head, yet still masculine.  Well bodied with good length of neck into well layed shoulders.  Moved well and in well muscled condition.  3rd Lewis’s Bournehouse Silver Flame for Starsetta. MD (2) 1st Taylor’s Wansleydale Quicksilver. Lighter tri colour dog puppy of nine months litter brother to my puppy winner.  Another lovely puppy.  Masculine head of correct proportion, dark eye and low set ears.  Adequate bone with tight feet. Long muscular neck into well placed shoulders. Good top line and tail set.  Both these puppies should have a bright future. 2nd Jone’s Ravensett Carnelian at Redbornstoke. Orange dog of 14 months.  Unplaced in junior.  Was unsettled today and difficult to assess. Attractive head with dark eye.  Good bone, balanced in body  proportions.  Moved OK.
ND (2) 1st Taylor’s Wansleydale Quicksilver 2nd Jones’ Ravensett Carnelian at Redbornstoke. UG (2)                               1st Mckiernan’s Niroke Never Say Never at Bushbane.  Attractive orange dog which I liked as a puppy and was not disappointed.  Well balanced and mature for his age.  In lovely coat and condition.  Masculine head with good stop.  Medium eye colour.. Good bone and tight feet.  Muscular neck leading into well angulated shoulders.  Good depth of brisket, well angulated rear.  Well muscled, level top line which he kept on the move.  I am sure this is one to watch for the future.2nd Darley’s Severnsett Heartbreaker Tri coloured dog, finer build to the winner and not as mature.  Attractive head with dark eye of correct shape.  Adequate bone.  Well angulated front and rear.  Well muscled and in good coat and condition.  Moved well with his handler.

Smaller than the winner.  Dark blue.  Masculine head, dark eye of correct shape, good bone, short coupled with well angulated rear.  Held his top line on the move.  PG (12,3) The first two dogs could change places at another time although made on different lines I thought both had many attributes. 1st Pitts’ Wandsfell Call On Me  Medium sized tri well balanced dog.  Won his class on movement.  Only a youngster who shows much promise.  Classis head with dark eye, not over done in any way.  God bone and tight feet, long neck into well placed shoulders.  Good rear angulation.  Well muscled and moved very well.  In good coat and condition just needs to mature to finsh the picture. 2nd Atyeo’s Samelen Harris Tweed.
