Australian Cattle Dog



PGD (1,0) 1. Smyth’s Morrow Forever In Blue Jeans, strong and masculine, lovely colour. Lovely head, strong without being coarse. Excellent eye for oval sgape and colour. Strong muzzle with good jaw. Correct stop. Skull broad, ears set wide. Well boned legs. Strong neck and well angulated front and rear, a lot to like about him, but not as mature in outline as BD, RBD.

LD (2, 0) 1. Jebson & plummer’s Austmans Doppler Effect, my BP & BOB last timeI judged the breed and one with a lot to like. Mature and compact in outline. Strong bone to round tight feet. Correct head, strong without being overdone, clean line and good eye. Strong muzzle and jaw, skull slightly rounded between ears. Well developed in chest and firm back. Would like to see a shade more hind angulation, but is powerful mover never the less, BD, BOB. 2. Britton’s Guardalavaca Circus Circus, much longer cast and therefore lacks the compact outline you look for in the breed, still young and has time to mature and strengthen. Good neck, rather broad in chest which affects front movement. Head is longer through skull and ears very wide and a shade large, which affects expression. Moved ok but rather fond of tail

OD (2, 0) 1. Jebson’s Ch Austmans Finn Mcmissile, strong mature male, found his head little too developed under eye and would prefer more oval eye. He is well angulated front & rear and has good chest and topline. Moves well. 2. Wright, Smyth & Cartwright’s L’Incanto Di Monte Tonico (Imp) not showing himself to best advantage today. Attractive head with correct proportions, flat cheeks and good oval eye, with correct ear. Firm back and good hind angles, would just like a shade more in front. Well-developed chest. Moved ok.

PB (2, 0) 1. Jebson’s Austmans Never Have I Ever, very mature pup, lovely compact outline and excellent bone to tight feet. Strong head/skull but feminine, good muzzle and lovely eye for shape & colour. Well angulated, and moved well, pushed dog hard, but he was just as you would expect more mature, BB & BP. 2. Cobourn’s Winddrover Faithful Soul, only a few weeks younger than the winner but was much rawer. Promising size and outline, but needs to strengthen in head. Front assembly is good – but needs to drop in hind angulation to shower greater been of stifle. Enjoyed the ring which made her harder to assess on the move.

JB (2, 0) 1. Smyth, Cartwright & Wright’s Goolara Elvenstar, another lovely bitch, stands on well boned legs, good strong pasterns to tight feet. Very attractive head, broad skull, high well used ears, and parallel planes of skull and muzzle. Very good eye of oval dark brown, give lovely expression. Firm topline. Good angles, moved well, difficult decision between two nice bitches, RBB. 2. Winddrover Faithful Soul

PGB (1, 1) Absent.


OB (1, 0) 1. Britton’s Ch Austmans Mandalay Bay, mature bitch who was carrying a little extra weight. Attractive head, good proportions broad rounded skull and good stop. Broad in chest. Would prefer more angulation front & rear. Moved ok behind but lacked reach on younger bitches in front.
