WELKS. Irish Setters

I very much enjoyed judging your very beautiful breed. Luckily we were able to stay outside and make use of a double ring. Out and back movement is a bit of a problem, and quite a few lacked ‘carriage’. I was very happy with both line ups and thought the top winners to be quite outstanding dogs. Veteran D. (5,3) Two grand dogs to start 1ST CATALUNA RED BARON (MRS R E A ROSE-HAY) 8 years and much more willing to go on the move. He has a lengthy, masc head. Lovely expression. Lengthy neck with well laid shoulders. Deep chest. Just a little wide standing and moving towards. Well bodied, correct loin. Loses his topline v slightly now. Correct rear, which he uses so very well. 2ND BRINARA BACK IN THE RUNNING (MR G S C & MRS J B AXON) 10 and a v pleasing d to go over. Prefer his head to winner. He has a moderate neck. Super body with well sprung ribs and deep chest. Sloping topline. Plenty of hind angulation. Minor Puppy D. (3,1) 1ST GWENDARIFF SMART RED JACKET (MESDAMES LONGBOTTOM & STEWART-RITCHIE) Very raw but so well put together, just needs to come together on the move. Masc head of sufficient length. Enough neck into well laid shoulders and good return of upper arm. Deep chest, well sprung ribs. Correct loin. Well bent stifles. Feet can improve. V promising. 2ND HARREDS STANLEY (MR P J HALL) Liked his outline and a v good head. Correct neck and a good front, not quite the forechest of winner. He has a deep chest, well ribbed back.
