Critique - Judge - Dogs - Lynne Dale

Updated

My critique below seems to have caused a stir and as usual unfounded assumptions have been made. It is beyond belief that anyone would think David Bell could make any such comments to a judge in the ring. Apologies are due to him from those thinking he is the person in question.  

 

At a time when we are given very explicit instructions for judging, perhaps it is time the KC turned its attention to the behaviour of exhibitors. It was sad for me to see unsporting conduct from those who should have known better. To be told whilst writing my critique that I was the first to "dump" his dog (second) was at the very least rude and another exhibitor leave the ring immediately I walked past, obviously upset she hadn't made the first cut. Others left dogs on the bench or withdrew them which I consider not in the spirit of dog showing. Good heads seem to be on the decline again. Long and lean does not mean lacking stop and raised brows. Too many had blank untypical expressions. Hind movement left a lot to be desired on quite a number even top winners and when did these long sculpted coats come in? The breed standard says of moderate length, they are after all gundogs.

VD (7)

1 Bott, Allen & Morgan - Sh Ch Ember Red Hot Chillipepper of Quensha: One of my all time favourites. Handsome, masculine and balanced head. Correct front and shoulders. Well sprung rib with good depth of brisket. Angulated quarters giving excellent drive to hind movement. A worthy RCC and BVet.

2 Hogarth - Sh Ch Avacet Snowdrift: Another beautiful dog, looked a picture standing close up to 1. Best of heads, ample stop, dark eye. Well bodied clean topline and correct tailset. Moved soundly with good driving action from excellent quarters.

3 Gisby & Pike - Sh Ch Suteresett Milky Way with Scarletti:

MPD (6 1)

1 Gisby & Parsons - Suteresett King of Hearts: Just what I look for in a puppy, well shaped head, chunky bone and body. Would have preferred more stifle but this should come as he begins to relax. Moved well, should have a bright future. Today I believe gave him his JW well done. In agreement with my co-judge BP.

2 Pullen & Aitken - Covarney Lil'Tipple at Jacingail: Another nice youngster. Pleasing head balanced outline good quarters. Has all the basic essentials to do well. A little erratic on the move.

3 Merson - Swiftlark Second to None with Magembay.

PD (8 2)

1 Gisby & Parsons - Suteresett King of Hearts.

2 Chalupa - Coppers Popsicle: My notes say head a little feminine for me and would like more substance but in saying that he has good front and topline and more turn of stifle than 1. Good steady mover which gained him this placing.

3 Muir & O'Connor - Gwendariff I'm Comin Out:

JD (12 3)

1 Stockton - Riverbrue Alchemist Amidst Kespas: WOW can this dog move. He covers the ground soundly with great driving action. Masculine refined head, good layback of shoulder. Straight front, neat feet. Deep body, gentle sloping topline, super width to quarters, which he uses to his advantage on the move.

2 Davis - Pawswood Prairie Wind: A lot to like about this boy preferred his head which has more definition than 1. Balanced body good front and rear angulations. Not as good on the move as winner.

3 Chalupa - Pawswood Pied Piper.

YD (2)

1 Greenan - Anlory Aidan: Short coupled compact dog with the best of heads. Straight front good neck and shoulders, well bodied. Tends to be overstretched by handler which spoils the overall picture. Very sound on the move.

2 Davis Pawswood Prairie Wind.

ND (5) 1.

Gisby & Parsons - Suteresett King of Hearts.

2 Drinkwater - Brabrook Whispered.

3 Vincent & Spencer - Zero to Hero Diervilla at Caervista.

GD (7 1)

1 Russell - Strathmead Huckleberry: Very attractive dog in excellent condition, quality head with ample stop and raised brows, good angulations both front and rear, pleasing outline. Moves well.

2 Nicholls - Romarne Under Orders JW: Attractive dog with quality head. Gently sloping topline, well angulated quarters. Steady sound mover.

3. Sharman & Jennings - Kerrimere Indiscreet.

PGD (10 2)

1 Bott - Gwendariff D'Ya Know My Name by Bardonhill JW: Masculine head with good stop and raised brows. Excellent neck shoulders and depth of brisket. Well placed shoulders, with firm gentle slope to topline. Excellent hindquarters with good width of second thigh. Moved soundly. In tip top condition.

2 Bell - Balintyne Just For You: Not disgraced standing second. Pleasing head, good front and forehand. Balanced outline with good hindquarters. Just lost out on movement.

3 Hoskins - Sandstream Just a Breeze: Liked this boy a lot. Pleasing head good overall construction and moved well.

MLD (12 1)

1 Hogarth - Redclyst Flash at Halingswood JW: One of the best heads on the day. Ample stop, raised brows expressive dark eye. Good shoulder angles and straight front. Gentle slope to topline with correct tail set. Plenty of width over second thigh excellent turn of stifle. Sound steady mover.

2 Nicholls - Delsanto Snowstorm: Different in type to winner but his head although without the definition of 1 is pleasing. Constructed well with correct angles front and rear. Movement OK.

3 Cuddy - Suteresett Rebel Rouser in Balbriggan:

LD (10 2)

1 Rowbottom - Lanstara Spring Moon: Refined handsome head with plenty of work and no sign of coarseness. Well laid shoulders, good front, flowing top line, well angulated quarters. Best mover in this class.

2. Cuddy - Aoibheannes Quite the Rebel by Balbriggan JW: Pleasing head and expression. Like his overall conformation. In good coat and sound on the move.

3 Willis - Gwendariff Thyme Bomb at Jacwilins JW:

OD (12 1)

What a fabulous class. My thanks to you all for entering although this was spoilt by one exhibitor leaving the ring before I had finished short listing.

1 Cox - Jsy Ch Tiroen Too Hot To Handle JW: Everything I look for in the Irish Setter. Classical head with ample stop, raised brows giving him a true Irish expression. Neck fitting into well placed shoulders perfectly. Deep body with well sprung ribs, gentle sloping topline and correct tailset. Super width of quarters, in full coat, looked a picture standing with no over exaggeration. Moved true both fore and aft, CC.

2 Sturrock - Sh Ch Forfarian I'm Sexy and I Know It JW: Very different from winner but eye catching dog with beautiful head and expression. Excellent neck and shoulders. Clean racy outline, in good coat and condition. Moved soundly with style.

3 Bott - Sh Ch Thendara Pot Noodle JW.

GCD (2)

I know how much hard work and effort goes into getting GC awards so in my eyes you are all winners.

1 Axon - Brinara Independant..

2 Marmol - Polmennor Fun in the Sun.
