Shetland Sheepdogs.

A Special day for me, being able to give my first set of CC’s in the breed I live with and adore. It really has taken an army to get me here, and I am so grateful to all that have helped me with this.

Today, I got a super quality entry. Thank you to all that entered under me today.

1st: 9541 HARDY, Mrs J Sandwick Masterclass- A stylish young man. Beautiful overall shape, good lay of shoulder and enough upper arm, strong topline, and moderate bend in stifle, won this class with his flowing movement.

2nd: 9587 SMITH, Ms A Fenstyle Never Say Never- Blue Merle of 8 ½ mths old. What a showman, he never put a foot wrong. An attractive outline. Very light on his feet, with good reach and drive. Just needs time to mature and this will be the full package.

1st: 9566 PEARSON, Miss D Edglonian Golden Graham – CC- This boy was shining star. What a pleasure to get my hands on. His head is lovely, wedge-shaped head, beautiful underjaw, level planes, with gentle stop, the dreamiest almond eyes, with super ears, set high up, with beautiful dark pigment. Beautiful length of neck, sat on well laid shoulder and a good upper arm, good length of body, beautiful length of loin, a gentle sweep over croup, long tail. Neat short hocks, on cute feet. Moved round the ring with power and purpose. Just something about this boy that stopped me in my tracks. Awarded him the CC (consequently his 3rd) and BOB. With not finishing til late, we didn’t stay for the group, however, the car was screaming when we heard that one, he got shortlisted but then to be place 1st in a Stellar pastoral group, to say I was thrilled would be an understatement. A true dream day. Congratulations.

2nd: 9597 WALKER, Mrs S Tooralie's Quest- Very unlucky to meet 1st today, as this boy is a super workman like boy, with everything in the right place, nothing over done in anyway, and moved with reach and drive, I’m sure this bot will have his day.

PGD (8 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 9532 GLOVER-GUEST, Mrs M Doonelodge the Explorer- This boy oozes breed type. Nothing flashy about him, but his elegant shape, flows from top to bottom. Lovely no exaggerated head, with good underjaw, beautiful eye shape, well place ears. Moved out and back soundly with good reach and drive.

2nd: 9526 FISHER, Mrs D Shellamoyed Goldfinch- S/W in fabulous coat and condition. Good head and kind expression, well bodied, all set of super tight feet. Moved well. Just wasn’t as settled today as I have seen him in the past. Another boy that will go far, I’m sure.

3rd: 9510 BOTHAM, Mrs M Balidorn Black Spice

Loved all three of these boys, that you all so much for bring them.

1st: 9589 STAFFORD, Miss C Ch RANNERDALE SHOWMASTER JW – I love this boy, and why wouldn’t you. He oozes breed type through and through, from his head- rounded muzzle, beautiful underjaw, blunt wedge-shaped head, with beautiful almond eye, well place neat ears on a flat skull. Sweeping well arched neck, good shoulder and upper arm, good depth of chest, good spring, and length of rib. Sweep of the croup. Well let down hocks on the cutest feet.

2nd: 9533 GOODWIN, Mr K & GOODWIN, Mrs L Highbrook Hobnob JW- A favourite of mine, that was so unlucky to meet 1st. This boy is not to be overlooked; his construction needs to be admired, beautiful upper arm and well laid shoulder, good length of body, sweeping turn of stifle, neat short hock. And his movement mirror this, light on his feet, with drive.

VD (3 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: 9581 RUTTERFORD, Ms J Ch Kelgrove Just Blue At Stormhead Sh.CM JW- a blue boy that I have admired from ring side for a number of years, but have never had the pleasure until today to get my hand of him, I was lost immediately by his kind expression, (reminded me of my heart dog, who also had the same pet name), he is 10 and ¾ years old and can seriously out move some of the youngsters, and great testament to his owner for keeping him in tiptop condition. Thank you so much for the pleasure of judging him. BVD

MPB (11 Entries) Abs: 3

1st: 9500 ATTWOOD, Miss L Black Forest- I’m a sucker for a dark tri colour, have owned several myself, but wow what an outline this little gem has. Good head and expression, good under jaw, good muzzle, excellent pigment, neat ears used well. Beautiful well arched neck, good topline and lovely bend of stifle, all set of super feet. Moved out and back soundly for one so young.

2nd: 9514 BRODIE, Mrs W & RAITHEL, Mr D Shanaburn Strawberry Wine- This young lady is just my cup of tea. She is very balance, nothing exaggerated, good shoulder and upper arm, beautiful topline, long tail, and lovely bend of stifle. Moved soundly, with reach and drive, this girl just needs to develop in head, but I’m positive with time this will come, and she will be one to watch.

PGB (14 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: 9542 HATELEY, Mrs K E Mohnesee Enchanted- If you were a baker and you wanted a cookie cutter outline of a sheltie, I think this girl would fit the bill.

The best class of the day, wasn’t a girl I didn’t like in this class, thank you all so much for bringing these quality bitches under me, I was truly honoured.

1st: 9605 WITHERS, Mrs M & THORNLEY, Mr R & THORNLEY, Mrs B Mitchfields Fashion Girl At Felthorn- I seriously could watch this girl move all day long, she sure could do a full day’s work and I would never tire of watching her. If you want to see a good moving sheltie then I think this is the girl to watch. Her elegant movement of course can be felt in her construction. Beautiful dark pigment, tight lips, beautiful, dreamy almond eye, flat skull. She has a well-fitting jacket, of lovely texture. Was absolutely thrilled to award her the CC, then to be told her 3rd, I honestly had no idea, huge congratulations.

2nd: 9590 STAFFORD, Miss C Ch RANNERDALE QUEEN O'THE NORTH JW- a favourite of mine, whom you must admire for her breed type, of which you would expect any less from this kennel. She is a flashy girl sable with beautiful big white collar. Good underjaw, well rounded muzzle, good pigment, good length of neck, solid topline, beautiful bend of stifle, the shortest of hock, on the lovely feet. Moved out with power and grace.

1st: 9539 HARDY, Mrs J Ch Dippersmoor Joie De Vivre At Sandwick- Wow this veteran is in the most glamorous of condition, wow the shine of this ladies coat was like a mirror. Another veteran that can show you how to move. She never let her handler down once, showed like the queen she is. Lovely overall outline. Very pleased to award her BVB and BV

2nd: 9578 RITCHIE, Mrs A & Mr M Jaelis Mystique Reflection JW- Another that I can’t believe is a veteran. She is a beautiful head and expression, with correct almond eye, giving her the sweetest of expressions. Moved out and back with power and grace.
