English Setter Society of Wales 29/09/2019

Thank you to the committee of the English Setter Society of Wales for asking me to judge your Open Show. Yet another well run show with excellent food however, as the weather was poor we had to judge indoors which restricted some of the movement in the dogs. Thanks also to the exhibitors who accepted my decisions with good grace.

ENGLISH SETTER SOCIETY OF WALES CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW  

SUNDAY 7 TH APRIL 2019

Thank you to the Officers and committee for my invitation to judge Dogs at their Ruby Anniversary show and to my 2 stewards who assisted me throughout the day.

With the agreement of my co-judge the main winners were;

BIS       – SH CH Wansleydale Star Queen of Glenmaurangi

RBIS     – SH CH Rachdale Sea Fever JW

BPIS     – Alolfrana Sugar’n Spice at Lynwood

BVIS     – SH CH Hartsett Cherry Bee JW

A clean outline and elegance are amongst many of the characteristics asked for in the standard. Combined together they give a lovely first impression to a judge in the ring and what I was hoping to find among the dogs today.

MINOR PUPPY DOG (3,2)

  1. Owen’s Cornsett You my Everything

Well bodied 8 month orange shown in good coat. Balanced head with dark eye. Handled better than his litter brother today who stood second. Moved steadily for a baby, using his tail.

  1. Kelly’s Cornsett the Wise One who gave his handler a hard time as babies sometime do! and thus was difficult to fully assess. Attractive colour.Good reach of neck. He was not as far on in body properties  as his litter mate and was a little unsteady on the move, and therefore placed as such today.

PUPPY DOG (5,1)

  1. Danks-Kemish’ Samelan GI Blues at Alolfrana

Blue dog nearly 12 months. Balanced head with good eye colour, nicely bodied and shown in good coat. Although he moved happily his front is loose at the moment, and this showed   when coming towards me. Preferred his tail set and bend of stifle to my second. Best Puppy Dog.

  1. Bryant and Hollis’ Sivamoon Storm Trooper for Phenset

10 month tri boy. Slightly heavier in head than 1 but with good eye colour. Well bodied and shorter coupled . However his tail set not quite as good and this reflected  in his  higher tail carriage whilst on the move.

  1. Taylor and Atyeo’s Samelan Come back Special

VETERAN DOG (2)

  1. Colton’s Sodalitas High Havoc over  Ennydloc

8 year old orange shown in good coat and condition for his age. Masculine head with dark eye. Well boned, good top line and correct tail set. Balanced picture  when set up. Moved out well using his tail correctly.

  1. Hutchinson’s Mariglen Dancing Brave over Monaysbridge.

Tri at nearly 9. He has a lovely head with a sweet expression. Correct top line and tail set. Not the same overall condition and movement as my winner with his front feet and bend of stifle letting him down.

JUNIOR DOG (3,1)

  1. Phillip’s Glenmaurangi Star Man

16 month tri, Clean in outline,good length of neck, well balanced, and nicely bodied for age, with a level top line and correct tail set. Good bend of stifle. Nicely muscled. Moved steadily  using his tail well.

  1. Wright’s Sorbus Dance the Night Away

Orange, not long in junior.  Slightly broader in skull and not the maturity or condition of my winner. Short  coupled, would like him to be  carrying a little more weight. Lifted his tail today on the move.

 YEARLING DOG (5)

  1. Taylor’s Wansleydale Quicksilver

22 month tri shown in lovely condition and coat. Clean balanced picture when stood with good reach of neck and a strong top line, short coupled ,correct tail set .Moved happily around the ring  using his tail  correctly  in line with his back.

  1. Kelly’s Alolfrana Memphis Rock

Another tri, balanced in outline with a lean  head and good eye. Correct reach of neck and shoulders. Level  top line. Shown in good coat. Close to one, however did not  move with the same animation and head carriage as my winner.

  1. Danks-Kemish’s Ravensett Work of Art at Alolfrana

MAIDEN DOG (2)

  1. Danks-Kemish’s Samelan GI Blues at Alolfrana
  2. Bryant and Hollis’ Silvamoon Storm Trooper for Phenset

NOVICE DOG (3,1)

  1. Bryant and Hollis’ Silvamoon Storm Trooper for Phenset
  2. Taylor and Atyeo’s Samelan Come Back Special

Was placed 3rd in puppy dog.  11 month blue. Balanced lean head with dark eye. Short coupled with good tail set .Shown in good coat however moved a little close behind.

UNDERGRADUATE DOG (2,1)

  1. Kelly’s Alolfrana Memphis Rock

GRADUATE DOG (2 )

  1. Felton-Blyth’s Felsett Bugati Blue

Blue dog, attractive colour and coat. Lean  head and dark eye. Level  top line , would like more reach of neck and layback of shoulder together with a better bend of stifle. On the move he carried his tail.

  1. Jones’ Ravensett Carnelian at Redbornstoke.

2 year old orange giving his handler a hard time both standing and on the move thus difficult to go over fully. Lean  head  with dark eye.  Well rounded bone.  Level top line and correct tail set. Well muscled.  Not shown in the best of coats.

POST GRADUATE DOG (6,1)

  1. Schoneville and Derry’s Hawklawn Khamsin at Balvenie JW

Judged this boy as a junior and gave him the class then. Now 2 and a half and maturing nicely.  Lovely clean outline. Good layback of shoulder, deep in chest and level in top line Tight feet. Shown in lovely coat and condition. Best mover in the class,using his tail  and holding his outline on the move.

  1. Oliver’s Bramstorm Oberon

Another orange of similar age.  Smaller  overall . Dark  eye , shorter in foreface .Good layback of shoulder and short coupled . Correct tail set. Another shown in good condition. Not the movement of my winner, raising his tail a little.

  1. Lawton’s Wandsfell Call the Shots for Oaklaw.

MID LIMIT DOG (3,1)

  1. Butler’s Wandsleydale Goldsmith

Lovely orange  shown in good coat and condition. Balanced head with a kind expression. Good reach of neck and layback of shoulder.Deep in body, clean in outline with a correct  tail set. Good bend of stifle, nicely muscled. Moved with drive using his tail.  RCC.

  1. Jenning’s Canteris Cool for Catz JW.

Lean, balanced headed blue with a well defined stop . Short coupled with correct top line and tail set, would like a little more depth in body and  unfortunately  not shown in his best coat today, which did not assist  with the overall appearance  when standing, however moved happily using his tail.

LIMIT DOG (6,1 ). 

  1. Cole’s Sorbus Storm Ryder JW

Another I have previously judged and placed well. 4 years old orange shown in lovely coat, in good muscular condition and carrying nice weight. Lean in head, masculine without coarseness and  with a kind expression and good eye. Short coupled and moved with drive. Although he has a good top line it needs to be checked as at times he can lose it spoiling the overall outline , as he did today in the final line up for top awards.

  1. Carty’s Gamerights Phoenix from the Flame

3 year old tri. Smaller in frame than my winner. Lovely balanced head and expression. shown in  nice  coat and good condition, well muscled. Short coupled, tight feet and level top line. Not the tail set of one and today tended to lift his tail on the move  .

  1. Taylor and Atyeo ‘s Samelan Harris Tweed.

OPEN DOG(4,2)  

  1. McCabe’s Sh Ch Rachdale Sea  Fever JW

Dark Blue that I gave the RCC last time I judged him. My opinion of him has not changed. He has a lovely lean head and kind eye and expression. Clean in outline, good spring of rib  and well  constructed throughout. Now fully mature  and in full coat he gave  the complete picture when set up. Moved well in the class and challenge and deserved the CC today and then RBIS.

2 Thomson’s Sh Ch Mariglen Fetlar Caspellwynd JW Sh CM

Lighter  blue ,lean in head, with a kind expression. Shown in good coat. but without the finish , the maturity or depth of body of  1. Moved using his tail correctly.

English Setter Society of Wales 7 April 2019

An enjoyable day at a very well run show celebrating their Ruby Anniversary.  Thank you very much to my 2 efficient stewards.   I was impressed with the final line up of both the dogs and my bitches.                             In full agreement with my co-judge Maureen Collier, the bitches took all the top honours.  BIS SH CH Wansleydale Star Queen of Glenmaurangie,  BPIS Alolfrana Sugar’N’Spice at Lynwood and BV Sh Ch Hartsett Cherry Bee.  I was in full agreement that the dog Sh Ch Rachdale Sea Fever JW, should be RBIS.

My main concern was the quality of the feet. ‘Well padded, tight, with close well arched toes  were the exception.   So many had either hare like feet or round flat feet, usually with nails requiring attention.  Add to this weak pasterns, and when the  dog is  coming towards you, the feet are ‘flapping’, not the elegant picture we require. That said I was very happy with my winners.
