Ilfracombe & District CS Open show 17th February 2018. Terriers and group
I would like to thank the society for inviting me to judge and for the exhibitors for bringing their dogs along. Delighted to say that this was a quality group with some cracking terriers for me to judge. Thanks also to my two stewards who kept things running smoothly and efficiently.
1. Hill’s Samstevever Serenamay. Pleasing and typy young lady with a short and solid body. Attractive well-proportioned head with a good ear set and dark almond eyes. Good front, strong muscular neck, firm topline and well sprung ribs. Well-developed hindquarters. Moved out well with drive and nicely presented harsh jacket. BOB, close up for a group place.
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Judge
1. Corti’s Biggleswick Billy No Mates. A tough choice as I liked both of these pups very much, thought this boy just had the edge on maturity and little more collected on the move today. Pleasing head, broad skull, neat ears and good mouth. Good front and legs. Shapely body, deep brisket, nicely angulated hindquarters and shown in super coat and condition. BPIB and puppy group 4.
2. Marshallsay’s Fergustaff Tudor Queen. Very feminine red and white girl. Nicely shaped head developing well, neat ears and good mouth. Good legs and feet, nicely bodied for age. Shown in lovely coat and bloom. Moved ok, just needs to settle a little more to show off her charms, one to watch though.
1. Carne’s Roughnecks Rogue Star. Mature boy with a well-proportioned masculine head with good strength of muzzle and dark eyes. Straight front, tight feet, good depth of brisket and well-muscled hindquarters. Not quite so fluid on move, could perhaps be moved at a slightly faster pace to advantage, but he is sound. RBOB.
1. Marshallsay’s Fergustaff Jack Frost. Top quality young red male, who scores highly on his head properties, broad skull, neat ears, dark eyes, and good bite. Straight front and tight feet. Really good body proportions with a good depth of brisket, nice shoulder placement and strong hindquarters. Shown in super coat and bloom, and moved out with powerful drive. No hesitation in awarding him BOB and the Terrier group and delighted to hear that he later took Reserve Best In Show, well done, will follow his career with interest.
2. Marshallsay’s Fergustaff Valkerie Queen. Red and white bitch, very feminine, with dark round eyes, neat ears and correct mouth. Straight front with good depth of brisket, good spring of rib and well-muscled hindquarters. Shown in super coat and condition. Moved ok, but not the fluidity of the winner, just felt she needed a little more oomph today.
1. Lewis’ Janski Philosopher Dajaces. Young man with a lovely overall shape and typical outline. Pleasing masculine head, well placed ears and good mouth. Clean neck and shoulders, and well-muscled hindquarters. Moves out with drive, just needs to strengthen a bit at front. Presented in good silky coat and fit muscular condition.
1. Lewis’ Ridley Xanto for Dajaces ShCM. Two lovely dogs and not much to separate. Mature boy of a pleasing colour and good coat texture. Super head and expression, dark eyes and well placed ears. Good front, strong neck, well laid shoulders, good ribbing with desired slight rise over loin giving a typical topline. Well-muscled hindquarters and super on move with plenty of drive. BOB. Got spooked by something in adjacent ring in the group, so missed out on a group place today, which was a shame.
2. Lewis’ Komidion Nickelodeon Avec Dajaces ShCM. Lovely mature bitch, not quite so settled on move as winner today, but full of breed type. Pleasing feminine head and dark eyes. Good front, elegant neck, well laid shoulders, strong quarters and angulations, well presented coat of good silky texture. RBOB.
1. Moore & Chudleigh’s Devleigh Dare to Dream. Pleasing size and balanced outline, long narrow head, correct eyes, good pigment and fine correctly shaped ears.

3. McManus’ Travellerway’s Rory. Male pup, not the maturity of body as yet, but pleasing overall shape. Good length of head and dark eyes, decent length of neck and typical front. Well off for bone, just needing a little more muscle tone to hindquarters. Nicely presented coat and kept profile on the move. BPIB.

Good shoulders and firm topline, well bodied for her age but giving a lot away in maturity in her breed class as up against mature adults and was acting the fool on the move, BPIB. But, wow what a difference when she came into the puppy group, she really had upped her game, showing herself to great advantage and covering the ground with ease on the move, she didn’t put a foot wrong. Pleased to award her puppy group 1.
