Critique -Judge - Bitches: Mrs Jill Holley (Wynjill)

I would like to thank the Society for inviting me to judge, my two stewards who kept the ring running smoothly and to all the exhibitors who presented their dogs so well groomed and clean!

I was looking for setters with the desired combination of elegance and strength, completing a balanced overall picture, with free flowing driving movement. I found many setters with large feet – the standard requires small, very firm toes, strong, close together and arched.

I was very pleased with my winners in each class.
