Thanks to the Society for the chance to judge Gordons today and to the exhibitors for the splendid entry. The sun shone and it was a perfect setting with a large ring to show off their movement. I was impressed by the overall quality and style of the dogs, my only concern was some of the coats. Dull and lacking on the backline and masses of feathering sculpted to give an outline that was not always that of the dog underneath. As a judge I feel the whole structure of whatever breed I am judging and my hands told what the eye may not see. Soundness on the whole was excellent.

1ST KILNRAE BOX EDITION OF ALOLFRANA (MISS O P, MRS R D & MR S DANKS-KEMISH & KEMISH)What a fabulous youngster. Super overall shape, excellent angulation front and rear, good bone and substance for age, has it all there for the future. Loved his head, deep not broad and a real boy, good dark eyes and ear set. Correct coat, tan and shining coat quality. Excelled on the move. Res Best Dog.

1ST GORDON-SETT STYLE HEARTBREAKER FOR GLENQUIN (IMP) (MR P, MRS L & MISS N JOHNSTON)Just stunning. Loved everything about him, correct size, strength and superb coat. A true weight carrying hunter without any coarseness and with superb movement too. Lovely head with good planes and dark eye. Long neck flowing into well laid shoulders and level topline. Excellent angulation front and rear , good depth of brisket and so well balanced all through. Real coal black coat of good texture and correct tan markings. Pleased to give him Best Dog and RBOB.

2ND BENBUIE THORNBIRD (MISS J R ELLINGTON)Well made dog with good bone and type, shame he was out of coat. Sound mover.

Puppy – Bitch Entries: 6 Absentees: 1

1ST GLENQUIN PHOENIX (MR P, MRS L & MISS N JOHNSTON)What a little cracker, so feminine, but with good bone and substance for age. Shining coal black coat and good tan markings. Good angulation front and rear, lovely level topline, good ribbing and just so balanced for a youngster. Her overall soundness and extra maturity for age gave her the edge to take Best Puppy.

1ST SH CH BRYERDALE TEXAS STAR JW (MS A MAPPIN). What a fabulous example of a Gordon. Wow, my epitome of a Gordon Setter, she fulfils the breed standard in every way for me. Best of heads, such a perfect shape and feminine with it. Excellent angulation, neck flows so well through shoulders and into a perfect topline and tail. Wonderful strength, bone, ribbing and overall style. Then she moves and the whole package comes together, so sound with a free flowing action and showmanship. In superb coat, that shining coal black coat of correct texture that many should aim for and correct tan too. Best Bitch and BOB.

2ND SH CH HERNWOOD CALYPSO GODDESS JW SHCM (MR P, MRS C A & MISS C SANDIFORD & LEWIS)Lovely veteran with super breed type and quality. Well made with strength and style. Just lacks the flowing lines of the winner. Super movement to take Res Best Bitch and BV.
