Yorkshire Gundog Club

Spaniel (Field)

P (1, 1 abs). J (1) 1. Shipton’s Winterbourne True Love for Mishules (Imp SWE) BJW18. 15 months old black bitch. Sadly lost out on maturity in later classes - these Fields take to so long to mature. Still, when age taken into account a very attractive spaniel. Classic expression with correct eye shape, noble head, strong neck leading to well-laid back shoulders. Good length of rib, short in loin. Moved well when settled. Overall a promising youngster, lots to like.   

PG (4, 1 abs) 1. McVitty’s Sonnetend Faith. Liver bitch, 22 months. Pleasing proportions overall, good head shape. Better feet than 2, good hind angulation and low hocks. Moved true, with drive.

2. Wheeler’s Sonnetend Careless Whisper. 22 months dog, lovely head which is masculine but not coarse in any way. dark eyes contribute to correct expression. Would prefer a little more depth of back rib and a slightly shorter loin. 3. Shipton’s Winterbourne True Love for Mishules (Imp SWE) BJW18 
O (6, 1 abs) A lovely class, full of quality but the ones lacking in coat had to pay the price today. 1, BoB. Taylor’s Sh Ch Elgert Take a Bow with Tayowen. Masculine and noble-looking dog, substantial but not coarse in any way. Aristocratic head, strong neck leading to well-laid shoulders. Balanced angulation, well ribbed. Moved with drive, looked like he could work all day. 2. Smith’s Ewtor Affinity for Flyenpyg JW ShCM. Not in the best of coats today sadly. Very nice angulation, neat feet. Feminine expression without ‘daintiness’. On the move did not have the precision of 1. 3. Holgate’s Sh Ch Nadavin Thistledown JW
