Gordon Setters 

Puppy (3,0)

1st  Bartholomew’s Bartholeys Secret Recipe. !0Mth D.  What a super young man who suits his name so well.  A joy to judge. Balanced throughout, lovely head, excellent neck & shoulders and lovely forechest. Good front with good bone and nice feet. Well bodied through to a very nice rear. Lovely tailset and action.  Moves so well for one so young.  Couldn’t take my eyes off him and had to give him BOB & BP.  Then the group judge obviously agreed with me and gave him G1 and PG1 before finishing off the day as BPIS. Thoroughly deserved.

2nd   Sawer’s Lochfain’s Eggscapade at Bumpkiss 

3rd   Robson & Honeywood’s Ordett Dalmore 

Post Grad (1,0)

1st  Cannell’s Ordett Zinfandel. 2˝yr D. Another nice young man but a little reserved to begin with but did settle.  Nice outline, masculine head but not overdone and well proportioned. Lovely shoulders, good bone and nice feet. Good rear angles. Moved very easy covering the ground well. True fore and aft. RBOB 

Open (2,1)

1st   Bartholomew’s Benbuie Blue Chip for Bartholeys. 4yr B. Lovely type with very good head, well balanced. Very good neck, shoulders and front assembly Lovely bone and good feet.  Nice rear. Another good mover. Moved with ease showing good reach and drive.
