Australian Shepherds

MPD (1) 1 Cowley’s Sparkaway Brave Heart, real baby boy but what potential, not happy indoors today but when he settled he was fine, well coated & was well presented, good hindquarters & a correct front, good body proportions, head just as a baby’s should be & although alone, he is quality & must do well. PD (3,1a) 1 Walsh’s Birkcross You Blu Me Away, quality boy who was completely out of coat but this only enhanced his correct construction, as the name suggest he is a b/m with tan points, lovely head & expression with ears of the correct size & shape, lovely forequarters & hindquarters which helped him power round the ring with style & correct head placement & ease, showed well to take BPD; 2 White’s Franmar Devils Desire, very much the baby here who was in good coat which was nicely presented, at 10 months still loose in front & close behind going away, no doubt when he settles, he could come right. Good neck & shoulders are ok. JD (1) 1 Jarram’s Chalksville's Azrael at Kashaella, light r/m who still needs to settle in topline both set up & moving, only 13 months, so still needs his head to finish but his ears are ok & in proportion to the head, good neck & shoulders with well boned legs & feet, he is well coated but no so happy being gone over, alone but still needs the time to finish. YD (3) 1 Morley’s Trijem Three Times The Magic, balanced youngster who is very mature for age, moved well on well boned legs & feet, covering the ground with ease & purpose with correct head carriage. Head still needs to finish expressive eyes which I would prefer slightly more almond shape, good neck & shoulders & good body proportions, nice type; 2 Davis’ Durena Black Panther, b/w with tan points, full tail on this youngster which detracts from the overall proportions, lovely head & expression, moved ok, in nice coat & condition, young handler did a good job of showing off his good points but just needs work to preparation of his coat as he looks as if he has a incorrect topline, which he doesn’t; 3 Wray-Ramsden’s Caronlea Celtic Fire Starter for Takhisis. GD (5) 1 Driver’s Qiao Casino Royale Fallcat JCh, would prefer slightly more stop to head as this can spoil his expression & ears could be slightly less heavy, he is balanced & in good coat, moved well holding his topline, he has good hindquarters used well to move well, put down in excellent condition; 2 Hutchcroft’s Allmark One of These Days, masculine tri who unfortunately on the day didn’t hold his topline both on the move & set up, slightly long in body which spoils the balance but he is in good coat & of course, because of his extra length he moved well, lovely neck & well muscled hindquarters; 3 Harvey’s Weather The Storm. PGD (2) 1 Wilson & Gibbons’ Wispafete Eternal Fire at Ozways, r/m with better body proportions hence moved better, again a full tail which you really had to look hard to check his body proportions, masculine head & expression, he is well coated & put down in excellent condition with a full main; 2 Knott’s Shalako's Come Hellr High Water, unfortunately at present he is too square which meant his movement was affected, again in lovely coat & condition, beautiful present & made the most of himself, masculine head & expression with a good length of neck & enough forequarters, well boned legs & feet. LD (4) 1 Birkett, McDowell & Harlow’s Elite Black Powder , looks a picture set up, he is balanced but just needs a bit of age to finish, lovely hindquarters, masculine head & expression, very masculine in outlook, lovely neck & excellent topline which just needs a bit of grooming to give the correct topline as at the moment it looks slightly roached, which he isn’t, lovely head carriage in profile movement with well muscled hindquarters, good bone & feet, showed his socks off to win the class & RCC; 2 Milligan & Marley’s Allmark One for The Road with Alfsden, lovely dog in excellent coat & condition, well made, slightly hesitant in movement & slightly off balance as he is a tall dog but he is quality & a lovely type, masculine head & expression, good neck & shoulders, held a strong topline set up & moving; 3 Cowley’s

Sparkaway Supernatural. OD (3,1) 1 Raymond, Shaw & Kirtley’s Ch Brighttouch Drift The Line Through Dialynne, classic, well presented dog, I can now see how he has done on the winning he has, moved & showed so well, he is balanced & quality all through, excellent head & expression, good neck & well made shoulders, lovely topline & tailset, excellent hindquarters & good depth of chest. First time I have seen him close up & he certainly impressed. CC & BOB; 2 Q Casino Royale Fallcat JCh. VD expression, in good coat with a lovely mane, showed well with well boned legs & feet; 2 Spenceley’s Quilters Kingfisher, reserve in a strong LD class, a lovely type with a good topline & tailset, moved ok, masculine in outlook, with a good head & expression.

MPB (2) 1 Cowley’s Sparkaway Black Magic, b/w with a tan tri, for only 8 months, she just filled my eye, lovely balance & quality, still needs to settle on the move but what a lovely type, in good coat put down in excellent condition,has so much potential.BP; 2 Williams’ Dwarf Red von Hopschodie, absolute baby who still has a lot to do to finish but when she matures, should do well, moved ok on well boned legs & feet, feminine head & expression, lovely neck & shoulders, good topline & well set tail. Another quality girl with potential. PB (4,1) 1 Williams’ Katelyn Kascaro, tri just right for age, she is nice type, balanced & in good coat which was well presented, moved well, good topine & hindquarters, with a well set tail placement, feminine head & expression with good ears which are not too large; 2 Dwarf Red von H; 3 Harvey’s Gemthorne Swirling Snow . JB (1) 1K Kascaro. YB (3,1) 1 Simmons’ Allmark Dance with Diamonds, mature bitch who moved well. Would like her a size smaller but in lovely coat & condition, feminine head & expression, no mistaking her breeding, she is very typical of the Allmarks, good neck & topline, well set tail & lovely hindquarters; 2 Gibbons & Satherley’s Wispafete Belongs to Music, more compact tri with beautiful presentation, head quite strong but still feminine, moved well, very feminine in outlook & moved with positive drive from well made hindquarters. GB (1) 1 Land & Gittins’ Soloyal Storyteller for Casmawllan, pretty tri whose is a very steady mover, put down in lovely coat & condition, alone but deserved her place for she is from the top drawer. Feminine head & expression with a good neck, balanced. PGB (0). LB (4,2) 1 Milligan & Marley’s Allmark On One Hand with Alfsden, again another that you would recognise for type, this b/m & tan is not overdone in any way, feminine head & expression with good ears, good topline & tailset, good depth of chest with a strong loin, moved well on well boned legs & feet, she is quality & very feminine all through; 2 Verbist’s Appledore Candy for Red Queen, longer caste r/m with heavy ears but with a feminine head & eyes, he is well coated & put down in excellent coat & condition, moved & showed well. OB (6) 1 Birkett, McDowell & Harlow’s Birkcross Mines A Mai Tai, b/w with tan points, what a lovely moving bitch, she balanced & quality all through, enough coat but that only enhances her well made body, feminine head & expression with correct ears & eyes, lovely legs & feet, good depth of chest & strong loin, loved her type & outlook, good topline & tailset. CC; 2 Raymond’s Stonepine Written in The Stars for Dialynne, just about hanging on to her coat but when she is back in full coat, I can see these two having lots of fun & changing places regularly, again well made & balanced, this quality bitch is a lovely type, who was well presented & moved well. RCC; 3 A Candy for Red Queen. VB (0).] BB (4) 1 K Kascaro; 2 S Storyteller for C; 3 Dwarf Red von H.
