Thank you to all exhibitors for accepting me as your replacement judge and all entered attending.

Puppy D/B (1) 1. French’s Lindfern Light Sabre. Sable boy of eight months, looking very promising. So well put together already at this young age. Appealing and balanced in outline, head developing well with a dark almond shaped eye and sweet expression, good bite and well set ears which he used. In good coat for age. Tail reaching hock and well set. Moved out soundly, from all angles with a well carried tail. Looked like he enjoyed his day out. Should have a rosy future. BP, RBOB and PPG 1. Special Yealing (1) 1. Clarke’s Ruscombe A Moment in Time. Twenty-two month old b/m dog who was a little reserved today and also still a little immature and needs more time to develop, Pleasing in type, wedge shaped head, straight front legs, would have liked a little more bone, level topline, wellbent stifle with good muscletone. Moved o.k. PG D/B. (1) 1. Kennedy’s Lirren Blue Gamble at Donbeley. Five year old b/m bitch, not in the best of coats, Feminine head, alert expression, would have preferred a more almond-shaped eye, she used her ears well and attentive of handler, good neckline and level topline, well bent stifle, moved well. Limit D/B (1) 1. French’s Lindfern Enchanted Dancer JW. S/W fem. bitch of 7 years. Nicely balanced overall in head and body, darkest of dark almond eye and gentle expression, well set neat ears which she used. In good coat, Smooth profile movement and well carried tail. Open D/B. (2)1.Rutterford’s Evad Whougonnacall at Stormhead JW ShCM. Eight year old shaded sable, shown in excellent coat and condition, well constructed and good bone, he is masculine and pleasing in head with good earset and carriage, very attentive in expression, used his ears, dark eye, perhaps to nitpick could be a little more almond shaped. Level top line and good tailset with tail a fraction short of hock, but did not affect his tail carriage which was held correctly on the move. He had a super sidegait, moving with enthusiasm, and good rear drive, covering the ground well. Well handled and presented. BOB 2. French’s Sonymer Snow Fall Ove Lindfern. Lovely s/w bitch of a good type and size, feminine in outlook, Well made overall with a good back, turn of stifle and good muscletone, dark almond eye and sweet expression and neat ears. Lithe and smooth movement.
