BORDER THREE COUNTIES 10
Judge/s:Mr G Corish
I was delighted to watch my BOB go G4 & my BP go PG1.
1 Sharp’s Rhozzum Valet, OK for size, well balanced head. Could use his ears more. Good front, OK for bone, good neck, shoulder & topline. Would have like a touch more bodyweight;
2 Johnson’s Karison Kumphrey, well grown youngster, hope he has stopped growing, very masculine in head, strong muzzle. Didn’t move as soundly as 1. Good hindquarters.
1 Spencer’s Cobstoneway River Magic, very nice head, very good expression, well placed ears, good front, well bodied, sound both ways;
2 Sneddon’s Chesterton Top Hat And Tails by Kersfell, nice for type. Not quite the shoulder of 1. OK for head type, neat ears, good front. Would have liked a bit more body on him but they can be difficult at this age;
3 Matthews’ Rexlands Cock Robin.
1 McPherson’s Brumberhill Benchmarked, super head. At a rather in between stage. I would have liked a bit more body but he is sound both ways. Good outline, OK for bone, excellent topline;
2 Sneddon’s Justinca Ryan by Kersfell, really taken with this one, it was a tussle to decide. Doesn’t move as well in front as 1. Is slightly shorter coupled. I liked his head as well & was in super coat;
3 Martin’s Bortino High Society.
1 South’s Borderella Day Tripper, very nice to go over, stacked looks really good. Doesn’t help himself on the move & could have a bit more enthusiasm but I really like his head & expression, sound, good front & topline;
2 Ramus’ Onthill Super Trouper, could have put more into it but was very nice to go over. Very typical in head, excellent coat & feet, good topline;
3 Moore’s Rhozzum Mercury at Bramblequest.
A most difficult class with no clear winner & several I liked looking bored & lacking Border spirit.
1 Jackson’s Clipstone Tailor, standing he is very nice, super head & expression, good front. Sound but I would have liked a bit more reach in front. In excellent coat. Could have done a bit more on the move really but his type won him through;
2 Irving’s Dandyhow Beeline, when he came in I thought he was my winner but as the class went on he seemed to be bored on the move, I looked at him & he went back on himself & lost his outline. On the table he was so nice to go over. Not quite the head of 1 but that’s not to say he hasn’t a good head, he has. Tough decision;
3 Bailey’s Grindelvald In Full Cry.
This was my best male class. Not a bad one to be seen in & I judged on head & expression.
1 Lee’s Ch Tythrop Tapas, super type & super on the move with true reach & drive, excellent head & expression, nice ears, good front, correct amount of neck, excellent topline, in super coat & body condition, went so well. CC
2 Wallace’s Hobholt Harrier, another I liked so much. Didn’t help himself on the table but I liked his type also. Very sound, true moving, excels in head & expression, super body, well handled, has one CC, should get made up. RCC;
3 Sneddon’s Kersfell Comet.
1 Reynolds’ Enchanted Evening at Etterbern, a really nice bitch, nice size, has the most super head & expression, strong in muzzle, good front & feet, good reach & neck, excellent topline, coat & feet, must have a super future. BP, RCC & PG1;
2 May & Whisker’s Thistlestone Jenny Wren, very nice type, didn’t help himself on the move but I saw enough to know she was sound. Well put together, in good coat & body condition & well handled;
3 Guvercin’s Glebeheath Lilo Lil.
1 Enchanted Evening at E;
2 Jackson’s Cobstoneway Moon River, OK for size & type, good neck & shoulders, good topline & tailset, good hindquarters, overall a very promising puppy. I was just bowled over by 1’s head & expression;
3 McPherson’s Brumberhill Bonjour.
1 Guvercin’s Achnagairn Code Name Glebeheath, quality bitch, feminine yet with strength, workmanlike, effortless moving & very sound, very much the head type I like, lovely outline, in super coat & body condition, should have a rosy future;
2 Docwra’s Bandicoot Jazz, lighter in build to 1 but has a lot of quality, totally feminine, well balanced head but lacks the strength of I prefer. Shown in tight, sound & very free moving;
3 Woollacott’s Tufterslodge Meadow Mouse.
A lot of variation in this class.
1 Stevens’ Cobstoneway Moonlight, nice bitch who showed so well, she is sound, I liked her size, good amount of neck, true in front, excellent coat & pelt, well ribbed;
2 Roslin-Williams’ Mansergh Speckles, this is one of those Borders it is lovely to go over on the table but was completely bored when standing. A nice size, sound & free moving, in great coat & body condition, must be frustrating to show;
3 Taylor’s Lutrabeck Layla.
1 Roslin-Williams’ Mansergh Singsong, very nice type, super outline, good neck & shoulder, spannable rib, excellent coat & pelt, good front, OK in head & expression, well handled;
2 Johnson’s Karison Kamellia;
3 Southam’s Gameway Margarita at Southash.
1 Clark’s Ch Southash Blue Betty Boo Gameway, gave this bitch a PG1 & delighted to see how well she has come on, lovely outline, moves with roach & drive, very feminine all through but yet has the strength to do a day’s work, quite lovely. CC & BOB;
2 McPherson’s Brumberhill Breeze, yet another Border who on the table is quite lovely but on the floor moved without any purpose. She was in great form & her coat colour could not have been better. I loved her head & expression & she was well handled;
3 Judge & Thomson’s Plushcourt The Bees Knees in Thuraldby.
