Thank you all for your overwhelming support of our website over the past year.

As many of you will know 2010 was, for us personally, a very difficult year for our own Irish Setters but your enthusiasm for the website certainly helped us to stay on track and overcome our problems at home. Thank you.

We have incorporated many new ideas into bardonhill.com during 2010. One of these was to add a search facility to the website which has proved very popular. You can now search for anything on these pages and you will find this particularly useful if you wish to research a certain dogs wins or a judges previous results or critique. Remember this will get better and better if all the results and critiques are supplied to us after every show.

Our many competitions were also well received and we thank all the people who so kindly offered sponsorship and all of you for your support entering them.

Please keep sending us your Open Show results, this is a particularly popular feature as is any news about Irish Setters doing other things such as obedience, PAT dogs and agility.

The Photo Archive Section has also been a success and we welcome further old photos from you, either by email or post that we can scan and incorporate into the slideshows.

This site has been setup for you - the whole Irish Setter community. We still have lots of ideas for expanding the website further in 2011 so stay in touch and remember to keep visiting bardonhill.com

Wishing you and all your beautiful Setters a Happy and Successful 2011.

Ian Newsham & Marita Bott
