Welsh Springer Spaniel

Firstly, I would like to thank the club for the invitation to judge. Also, a big thank you to my efficient stewards and the exhibitors for their entries and support.

Puppy (0,0)

Special Yearling (1,1)

1st Stone’s Kidenoan Mark Time For Merrem JW. This 22-month male is of nice type with a good head and kind eyes. Stands on good feet and well off for bone. Moved out straight and covered the ground with ease. Merry with a tail that kept on wagging. Rich red coat with ample feathering for his age. Pleased to award him BOB.

Post Graduate (4,4)

1st Hankin’s Julita Rainmaker With Woodelrond. 3-year-old male of good size. He is well balanced, compact with nicely angulated shoulders. Well sprung ribs and has a balanced head with dark eyes. Moved out well, holding his top-line on the move.

2nd Ferguson’s Julita Raindance At Teaselwood. 3-year-old female, litter sister to 1. Compact and well balanced. Typical feminine head with kind expression. Good angulation fore and rear. Moved around the ring with drive.

Open (4,4)

1st Waller’s Isfryn Lady Godiva At Fireglow JW. 6-year-old female with a feminine head. Well-balanced and presents a lovely silhouette. Her kind eye gives a soft expression. Good length of neck and well-sprung ribs. Lovely top-line which is carried well on the move. Happy to award her RBOB.

2nd Tubb’s Slapestones Tidel Wave For Alsutu. 8-year-old male, not showing his age. Still holding his rich red and white colour. He is a different type to the winner, larger in build but still much to like. Moved around the ring with drive.
