Irish Setter.

Graduate.

1, Wallace, Gwendariff On A Chatline. 3 year old bitch that has a balanced head with almond shaped eye of good colour. Looks so very typical of her breeding. She has well laid shoulders a straight front and neat feet. Deep in brisket, she is firm over the loin with a sloping topline and moderate turn of stifle. Moved positively and steadily with correct tail carriage.

2, Stephenson, Drumwhaur Cherokee Rose.

3, Dow, Shenanagin Stolen Kiss.

1, Tupper & Rosie, Staratlanta Elliott Sh CM. This mature male is a quality Irish Setter from every angle. He has a beautiful outline, a full, rich chestnut coat and he completely fills my eye. His head is balanced with dark eyes of correct shape with raised brows. Good length to his muscular neck which is set smoothly into his well laid shoulders. He has a well sprung ribcage providing plenty of lung room. There is strength in his loin and he has well turned stifles with a good width to the second thigh. He made good use of the limited space in the ring and demonstrated a driving action from his hindquarters. Over all a very pleasing picture. BOB. I was delighted to watch him win the Gundog Group under fellow breed specialist Cheryl Stevenson, congratulations to his owners.

2, Vallance, Lynwood His Grace of Corcencone

3, Stephenson, Drumwhaur Sunshine Girl.
