SOFT COATED WHEATEN JUDGE SKC AUGUST 16
Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers
1 Satherley’s Silkcroft Auroras Encore, 16 months bitch of a smaller type but very well put together. Lovely balanced skull with keen dark eyes & thin well set ears. Good sized teeth & strong jaw, slight arch to neck & well laid shoulders. This was a very close call between 1 & 2 but I just preferred the rear action of 1;
2 Johnson’s Garsaynogold Julia, taller bitch than 1 of 2½ years & looking beautiful in profile. Balanced head, good front, deep chest & strong loin. A tad close behind that just restricts her rear drive;
3 McFerran’s Kirktonhill Cara Dilis.
1 Satherley & Smith’s Am Ch Haldane Chasin’ Tale, 4 years dog with a lot to like. Nice head with dark eyes, strong bite & good earset. Strong neck, well laid shoulders & straight front with good depth to chest, compact loin & strong well angulated rear. If anything I would prefer him to be a shade taller. This boy excelled on the move with plenty of reach & drive;
2 McIntyre’s Thistlebe Mr Bojangles, 4 years boy with a lovely profile & good size. Good balanced head, arched neck & strong flat topline. Straight front, decent spring & good rear angulation. Just didn’t get his movement right today, messing up in the around & not so smooth as 1;
3 Mackenzie’s Kirktonhill Rumour Has It.
1 Clarke’s Flaxela Weaver Of Dreams, a stunning girl celebrating her 10 months birthday & the one that took my breath today. Head of good ratios, feminine but with good width to her skull. Strong muzzle, large clean teeth, dark friendly eyes & thin well set ears. Well built forehand with straight front legs & good spring to ribs. Level topline with no weaknesses & strong rear with good bend through her stifles. Moved effortlessly with good reach & drive & one with a bright future. Delighted to watch her go PG3 though in my opinion she could easily have topped it. BP, BOB &PG3;
2 Johnson’s Garsayno Gold Imp, 4 years very nice bitch of good size & shape. Pleasing head with strong jaws. Good forehand & strong back. Good rear angulation & well let down hocks. Couldn’t match the easy movement of the winner even with good drive from the rear;
3 Lui’s Thistlebe Them There Eyes at Eblanahalls.
