Sedgefield & District Agricultural & Horticultural Society

SEDGEFIELD AS, August 10

Sedgefield Agricultural Society held their open show at Robert Brown Showfield where a great atmosphere prevailed with lots happening on this large site from horses, cows, alpacas and sheep to the dog show & a companion show running in conjunction. Despite the wind & rain it was a very enjoyable day with lovely dogs & exhibitors. Thanks to the hard working committee for ensuring that the show finished at a reasonable time & the caterers for yummy food & drinks for judge, stewards & exhibitors alike. This is just how shows used to be & I was so pleased that the welcome that was given to us was lovely.

My thanks to the group judges for sending through seven excellent examples for the best in show competition. Despite the wind & blustering conditions my choice for Best in Show fell to the beautiful Italian Greyhound bitch, Newill Good As Gold, she just enchanted me with her beautiful expression & excellent outline, loved her beautiful coat & she never shivered once in the wind. When she moved, she pulled herself together & covered the ground as if to say, “I’m here, don’t miss me!” I loved her & I look forward to following her career, for I am sure she will soon be a champion. RBIS went the Border Terrier dog, Raleniro Second Time Around, mature dog with excellent body proportions, loved his head & expression, excellent coat & condition, moved soundly on well boned legs & feet. BPIS, Primavista’s Imaginarium, who took BP under me & her critique can be found within the breed. RBPIS, Kerrylands Hunting High And Low for Chanderhill, excellent well developed Spanish Water Dog bitch, in lovely coat & condition but where she excels is in her precise movement for her age, she is balanced & quality with a feminine head & expression. BVIS, Kazkell Thyme To Dream, Papillon male in full coat, the wind never disturbed this 9 year old, who was in excellent condition, lovely head & well set & carried ears, moved well & showed his socks off to win this quality filled section.

BP; 2 Wyer’s Otis Du Roc De La Borie, Griffon Fauve de Bretagne, typical dog who was a little overawed today by all the noise & wind & hence he moved a bit erratic but when he settles, I am sure he will be untouchable, he is well proportioned with a lovely head & expression, good neck & shoulders, correct size & with a good coat; 3 Wright & Taylor’s Grande Misterio Louis Roederrer.
