Gundog Club Of North Wales

GUNDOG Club Of North Wales 26th November 

Thank you to the Committee for the invite to judge . Small entry but it was 3 quality Irish who stood before me . It is a lovely friendly show and I hope the exhibitors support this show in the future . 


Irish Setters 

Junior 

1st Hughes Alfolfana U Are A Diamond , Nicely put together bitch of 7 months , sweet expression , good dark eye , lovely low set ears She is well ribbed back with a decent width to her 2nd thigh . Balanced angles front and rear . I thought she was presented very well . Her handler just needs to work on striding out with her . She is a very nice puppy BP 


Post Grad 


1st Blackshaw Lanstara Spring Star Lovely bitch , she has a typical irish expression when she looks at you with her dark , correct shaped eyes . Good front with plenty of chest . Neck is set well into her shoulders , correct lay back of shoulder blade with a slight slope to her topline . Well turned stifles and good rear angulation . Moved well RBOB 



Open 

1st Rowbottom Lanstara Spring Moon , a boy whom I have watched from a puppy , he has been nurtured by his owners and it shows . Masculine head with a lovely soft expression The boy has a racy outline and he flows from his nose to his tail he has gentle slopping top line , decent front with a good sternum . He is obviously exercised properly as he has good musculature which shows on the move . It was a pleasure to award him BOB and watch him go BIS3 



English Setters 

 

Grad 1st Baker Pewterspere Pearl Dragon Of Ridleywood 

The boy stood alone . Decent angles in front , more moderate behind . Decent spring of ribs . A little strong in skull for me but he has a kind expression . Moved okay BOB
