Horsham & DCS - 4/12/2014
you to the committee for Horsham & DCS for the prestigious honour of
judging BIS at their show and for their hospitality on the day.
Not the warmest of venue’s but plenty of dogs and a quality line up for
BIS and BPIS put through by the group judges.
BEST IN SHOW -
Lightfoot & Lock’s Telshotbriar Leonardo with Littondale – Lhasa
Apso. 17mth, what a showman and with such presence. So well put
together with lovely head and expression. Shown today in lovely
coat and condition. On the move he really is eye catching, so
important and this stage in the day. Lovely mover showing a
clean true rear movement, straight in front and for a little dog
he covers the ground so well. Could not be denied.
RES BEST IN SHOW –
Whittock’s Kingsheath Willian Regal – ESS. Another youngster who
could not be denied. Only 21mths. Quality boy of good type.
Super head and neck. Lovely body, well made fore and aft with
good bone and feet. Loved watching him move, so true from all
angles with just the correct amount reach and drive to allow him
to cover the ground with ease.
BEST PUPPY IN SHOW –
Wickers’ Skimarque Sent From Heaven to Vukasin Siberian Husky.
Only 6½ months and such promise. Super shape and type and so
well made with lovely angles. So well balanced and didn’t put a
paw wrong. Lovely head and ears. Such good true flowing powerful
looking movement for one so young.
RES BEST PUPPY IN SHOW –
Howard’s Lanokk Szivos HWHV. 11mth and a lovely youngster. Liked
his overall shape and stamp. Masculine head but pleasing
proportions and shape. Well made fore and aft with good depth of
chest.. Super rear end, well muscled and used to effect on the
move giving reach and drive that catches your eye.
Beautiful 7mth litter sisters, both with lots to like. Both with lovely
‘classic’ heads, dark eye and a soft expression. Both have lovely
forechest and lay of shoulder.
Sandstream Welcome Breeze.
slightly longer neck and I felt that today was the better
balanced of the 2 and has better angles behind and a better
width of ham. Not as settled on the move today but enough to
show she can move true when she concentrates. BP and
pleased to see her more settled in the group.
Wateron’s Sandstream Summer Breeze
Wilkins’ Margretwoods Dolly Mixture. 13mth B. Like this
young lady for shape. Pleasing head and dark eye. Good length of
neck flowing into well laid shoulders. Nice depth to chest with
good spring. Lovely rear angles and super neat feet. True mover
with good reach and drive.
Harrison’s Caskeys Midsummer Madness
Cuddy’s Sutersett Rebel Rouser in Balbrigan. 2½
Yr. D. presenting a
correct outline with a slight slope, not exaggerated as a number
are these days. Masculine in head with good eyes but broad
across the skull so lack the refined ‘long lean head’ I was
after. That said I really like everything else. Super front with
good forechest and depth. Well ribbed back to short strong loin
and a well muscled rear with correct rear angles. Lovely mover
with good extension front and rear. In the challenge I just
preferred the head of the open winner. RBOB
Richardson’s Kirkavagh Hernando ShCM. 4yr mature D in
good coat. Lovely head and eye, nice length of neck flowing into
well laid shoulders over correctly sprung ribs of good depth and
with nice forechest. Super rear angles and another one who can
move correctly. BOB
Cuddy’s Aoibheannes Quite the Rebel by Balbrigan
can I say about this class? Headed up by 2 litter sisters that are just
so alike in body, and a young man you would have won a number of classes
I have judged before but today was rather distracted.
Stuckey’s Medogold Coralie of Pendan. WOW. Not seen this young
lady before. Absolutely gorgeous 13mth B. Super outline with
lovely neck with smooth lines through to well laid shoulders
over correct spring of rib of good depth. Short loin with
correct arch. Wonderful rear angles with correct tailset and
carriage. Loved her underline. And boy can she move. True coming
and going and an effortless correct profile gait with reach and
drive such that she covers the ground with ease. BOB and
pleased to see her go Group 2. This young lady has
a bright future.
Brooksmith’s Medogold Kiss N’Tell
Hazeltine’s Hookwood By George
Post Graduate (3,1a)
1st Hazeltine’s Hookwood By George. 14mth D.
3rd in Junior but such a smart lad. Another with a lovely shape.
Masculine head but not overdone, good neck and lovely shoulders.
Strong athletic boy, well made and well muscled. Powerful,
ground covering movement in profile but rather distracted coming
and going today which is what cost him the previous class.
Squires’ Droveborough Hoskings Hope for Bentham
Open Dog (3,1a)
Welch & Hazeltine’s Hookwood only Me JW. Another I have
done well in the past, giving him a puppy group at 11 months. I
said then that this young man has a bright future and now, at
2yrs, he is maturing into a lovely specimen. Pleasing head
shape, with lovely length of neck and well laid shoulder. Good
fore chest and depth of ribbing. Well muscled loin and rear
which is correctly angulated. A good mover but just not a clean
in front as my junior winner. RBOB.
Brooksmith’s Nightgold Blackavar
