Critique - Judge - Bitches - Mrs Adrienne Callister 

Irish Setter Bitches

My thanks to the committee of N.G.A. for providing such a lovely show. Their warm welcome and hospitality was second to none!  I was so fortunate to have such experienced first class stewards, who helped me keep to the requested time deadlines.

A special thank you to all the exhibitors for such a wonderful entry.  

I was brought up with the maxim ‘The dog on the day’ constantly ringing in my ears, and this was my aim when judging.

As most classes were of a good size  it was inevitable that some eye catching  bitches  went home cardless. The main reason being that when standing, they presented a true Irish silhouette, but then let themselves down  ‘on the move’. I believe that rear movement in particular is becoming a cause for concern.

However having said that  there were some super setters present. I had to make some tough placing decisions, especially in the quality upper classes where I felt that some lovely bitches lacked animation on the move, possibly caused by the heat later in the afternoon.

All exhibits were beautifully presented.  There was one level  bite.

I had a truly memorable day, loved every minute of it! Thank you all.

Veteran 6 (1 abs.)

1.Rutherford’s Am. Ch. Witchbrooke Clonageera Corot. A head turning  nine year old, absolutely stunning when moving with such exuberance. Scores in overall quality and a head to die for!   The epitome of elegance. How I would have liked to have seen her in her younger days. RCC

2. Stevenson’ s Lochlorien Prime Suspect for Andley JW   SHCM.  Different in type to one, a more substantial bitch, who is still feminine, sound and racy. Presented the correct gently sloping top line, which was missing in several exhibits. Shown in good coat and condition. Very sound mover.

3. Robert’s  Polmennor Willow Pattern.

Minor Puppy Bitch 7 (3 abs.)

1.Crocker and Siddle’s Meadway Morag. B.P.I.B. Built on flowing lines, with no exaggeration.  Very compact and balanced. Loved her gorgeous head and dark eye. Her featherings are coming. Moved so well. Just wish she was mine!

2.Milby and Stewart-Ritchie’s Gwendariff We’ll RememberU. Balanced head. Good reach of neck, sloping topline. Well angulated front and rear.

3.Fountain’s Cassarla Fizz Bang Wallup

Puppy Bitch 10 (1 abs.)

The first big decision of the day. Really liked them both. Two most promising puppies who will have  bright  futures in the showring.

1.Repeat

2. Mugford’s Sangarah Skyline Over Lynwood (Imp Hun) A quality well balanced puppy. Good angulation fore and aft.  Very steady movement using her tail. Lovely head with raised brows and kind expression.

3.Hall’s  Glennara Never Can Tell

Junior Bitch 19 (4 abs.)

1.Bott’s Gwendariff Such a Carry On at Bardonhill.  An elegant, substantial, but still racy bitch. She has dark eyes and pigmentation that  give her a wistful expression.  Smooth neck into shoulder placement with well angulated quarters enabling her to move freely and well on a loose lead. A pleasure to see.

2.Waterton’s Sandstream Summer Breeze.This bitch scores in body shape and proportions, well ribbed,  good depth to brisket, correct  bend of stifle and has correct tailset. Loved her gentle serene expression, very pretty.

3. Hyslop’s Gwendariff On a Rollacoasta

Yearling Bitch 14 (4 abs.)

1.Waterton’s Sandstream Summer Breeze

2. Box’s Bardonhill Afternoon D’Lite at Fernstart. A smaller, but very compact balanced  bitch.  Shown in full coat and good condition.  She has lovely dark eyes and raised brows, which creates her sweet intelligent expression . Racy and full of quality. Moving out well on neat feet.

3. Jones Gwendariff Nutmeg

Novice Bitch 16 (2 abs.)

1.Mugford’s Sangarah Skyline Over Lynwood (Imp. Hun)

2.Fauvreue’s Clonageera Walk in the Sun. Reserve in  a strong Junior Class.  Built on smooth lines. Good reach of neck.  Elegant head..  Sturdy, well off for bone, and shown in hard muscle tone. She moved so well, striding around the ring on a loose lead.

3. Berry and Morris Brinara Lowri

Graduate Bitch 18 (4 abs.)

A good class.

1.Partridge’s Kerrydown Octavia.   A very pleasing bitch of lovely type.True Irish expression, with a glint of mischief in her dark eyes.  So well put together and very smooth over shoulders. Sound all through. It was a joy to see her move so freely and effortlessly around the ring, driving off short hocks.  She really impressed me.

2. Powis’s  Amberwave Feather.  Attractive head with dark expressive eye. Good reach of neck fitting smoothly into gently sloping top line. Well sprung ribs and super hind quarters, enabling her to  move with drive.

3. Pike’s Redclyst Aura

Post Graduate Bitch 13 (3 abs.)

Another good class, with splitting hairs decisions.

1.Wilkin’s Bardonhill Hetty Bayliss Among Margretswood JW. Most beautiful, elegant bitch.Really scores in head, has correct eye shape and  gentle expression. Good angulation. Clean lines throughout, strong  topline finished off with correct tail set,  Moved so well.  Considered for RCC.

2.Kavanagh’s  Withersdale Lady of Letters. Pleasing  long lean head, with quizzical expression, and dark eye. Darker in coat than one. Thought she could benefit from losing a little weight, but she was so well made and moved with enthusiasm, she thoroughly deserved her place.

3. Pollard’s  Grayrigge Rosalind.

Mid Limit Bitch 5 (0 abs.)

1.Walters Dreamerlis Regal Jodie from Deniel. Compact, well balanced attractive bitch, presenting  true Irish shape, including arched neck, nothing exaggerated. Deep brisket, strong back. Straight front. Good quarters. Loved her head and engaging expression. Would like to see her move on a loose lead.

2.Sheldon’s Delsanto Snow Belle JW Close decision between one  and two. I thought  two was feeling the heat. Similar remarks apply. Another very sound and pretty bitch with correct  long lean head and  raised brow.  She has good front angulation, super bend of stifle, and short hocks.

3. Catling ‘s Shandwick Love In A Mist for Teleri.

Limit Bitch 16 (5 abs.)

1.Bott, Allen and Morgan’s Bardonhill Please Don’t Tease Quensha JW. She caught my eye on entering the ring, just buzzing with enthusiasm and joie de vivre. A well proportioned bitch, with a clean outline. She flows from nose to lashing tail.  Gorgeous head and inquisitive expression. Correct head planes and ear set. Such excellent angulation, and good width to second thigh. She moved so well with great drive and lashing tail, in harmony with her handler. She never stopped showing.  I was pleased to award her her third CC, and was thrilled when she was later placed B.I.S.3  Many congratulations to her owners and breeder.

2.Elkins Avacet Snowbird. Although I normally prefer smaller bitches, I had to admire this bitch’s  quality and soundness. I really liked her type, giving the impression of strength with substance, but still retaining her raciness and elegance. She looked so lovely, shown in full coat and excellent condition. Very pleasing head  and soft expression. Excellent front assembly, plenty of heart room and  powerful hind quarters, so she moved with style and lengthy stride.
It was a pleasure to go over her.

3. Stewart-Ritchie Gwendariff Walnut Whip

Open Bitch  10 (2 abs)

1.Parsons Sh Ch Suteresett Miss Splendid at Bransett. Surprised myself here. Another bigger bitch who completely wowed me when she stood in the ring. One look and you can see her quality. She has such good bone, great shape, and well sprung ribs, but  still maintains her  raciness. This, combined with her wistful feminine expression and gleaming full coat, won her first place in a very good class of outstanding quality. She was shown in tip top form. A wonderful picture of a setter bitch in her prime.

2. Kolbach’s Coppers Wine’N Roses (Imp. Swe). I have always liked this bitch. She has the most appealing head and friendly expression.  So well     put together. Great front assembly, keeps her topline on the move, plus  powerful hind quarters. Well muscled and super fit.  I enjoyed  watching her effortless free flowing movement. Newly crowned the previous day, and so worthy of that honour. My congratulations.

3.Naylor and Morrison’s Sh Ch Anlory Carinena JW

Good Citizens Bitch 2 (1 abs)

1. Jonola Secret Love at Lochfrae. My notes say that she is such a sweetheart.  Very pretty and has a good shape  and moved soundly once settled. I think that she would benefit from more time and maturity.
