SELECT DOG WAS  CH TRYSTYN'S HOT TOPIC AT KY-BRYN    (NO PICTURE)

 

I thank the Board of the Flushing Spaniel Show for appointing me to judge Welsh Springer Spaniels at Knoxville , Tennessee on 12th &13th January 2018.

After a long journey out to Knoxville and missing a connecting flight I arrived at my hotel at about 3pm on Friday afternoon. 

My first stint at judging came the following day on the Saturday. I must mention the hospitality which was exceptional. Everyone was very welcoming and did everything in their power to ensure I enjoyed my visit. I was introduced to my very capable stewards and thankfully I had previously had a quick lesson in the correct judging procedures from Meghen Reise Bassel. Plus my 2 stewards kept me in check throughout the day.

Although not a big entry, I was really pleased with my main winners. The Winners Dog winner came from the Bred By Exhibitors class, Trystyn Benton Quack The Code. The winners Bitch came from the 12-18 months class, Clussexx Got The Go Ahead From Stonecroft.

Sunday judging included veterans, hunting dogs and the BOB competition. On both days all dogs/bitches were presented in top order and the standard of handling was really high.

In the BOB competition I decided to split the class in two. I judged the new dogs first (Champions) and then the new bitches (Champions). This class also included winners dog and bitch from the day before, veterans, hunting dog winners. This method of judging is completely different to what happens in the UK and I have to say that when they all entered the ring for my BOB etc it was quite a sight to see them all present. 

My eventual BOB was the winners bitch CLUSSEXX GOT THE GO AHEAD FROM STONECROFT. On the Saturday when I saw this young bitch I loved her " a feminine head with good expression, good length to neck and good topline. Front was good with lovely bone and movement was excellent. She moved just as exuberantly on the Sunday with a different handler and continued to pull out all the stops. This young lady could not be overlooked for Best of Breed and Best of Winners.

BEST OPPOSITE SEX was again the winner from Saturday, TRYSTYN BENTON QUACK THE CODE. on Saturday I was again taken by his true welshie type. Another youngster with lots of time on his side, " a masculine head with good eye shape and expression. Very balanced when stacked with good proportions. Lovely spring of rib, deep body, correct tail set. Good front with ample forechest.Another presented in good condition and full coat. Like the bitch very sound on the move. Unlucky to meet the bitch in such form.

After judging I was pleased to hear that both now have their Champion title.

SELECT Dog was CH TRYSTEN HOT TOPIC AT KY-BRYN a very worthy champion with a lot to like, just not quite in the form of today's winner.

SELECT BITCH was CH CLUSSEXX ONE STEP AHEAD. Not surprised to learn afterwards that she was the Dam of my BOB. This bitch caught my eye when she entered the ring. Similar type to her daughter, they are so much alike that same comments apply and I had to split hairs between them on the day. On another day it could easily be the other way around.

BEST VETERAN was GCHB CH MYSTIC ACRES REFLECTION OF THE PAST.

BEST FIELD was ROLYART PLAYING HOOKEY BN CGC

BEST PUPPY was CLUSSEXX STONECROFT INSIGNIA

AWARDS OF MERIT were GCHB ROLYARTS CROCODILE ROCK and CH STATESMAN'S KISS THE GIRLS AT TREOLINE

In general I felt the quality of the bitches were better than the dogs. The breed in general has some too round eyes creeping in which alters the expression. Fronts on some could be better needing more forechest, some were narrow in front. Feet need to be watched as some were not good, movement could be better with some but on the whole was good. Also some heads were a little strong for me. On the plus side temperaments and showmanship was excellent as was presentation.

I would like to thank exhibitors for their entry and the sporting way they took my decisions.

GUNDOG GROUP SHOW REPORT

JUDGE NIGEL WORTH 

I would like to thank the committee of the W.K.C for inviting me to judge my first group at such a prestigious show. Their hospitality and organisation was second to none. Some top quality dogs/bitches were put forward by their respective breed judges and it was difficult job to shortlist. No doubt many of the dogs will be seen again and their day will surely come . In addition to my final line up I selected the, BRITTANY, ENGLISH SETTER, G.S.P, GORDON SETTER, HUNGARIAN VIZSLA, IRISH RED & WHITE SETTER, CURLY COATED RETRIEVER, I.W.S, 

GROUP 1. Was the outstanding American Cocker Spaniel, Fin & Lux Ch VERY VIGIE I DON'T KNOW. He was presented and shown to perfection, I loved his head and expression. Correct sloping topline which he held on the move. Loved his rear drive around the ring. Well balanced body in good hard condition.

GROUP 2.  A close second was the POINTER bitch Sh Ch KANIX CHILLI. What an eye catcher. Gorgeous feminine head, excellent neck and shoulders,strong bone, best of feet. So balanced in outline.Well bodied and lovely muscle and condition. Moved effortlessly around the ring carrying her head with style. Really was a difficult choice.

Group 3. IRISH SETTER Sh Ch THENDORA  POT NODDLE JW Another dog who on another day could easily have been my winner. Standing he looked a picture. Lovely head and masculine expression. good neck and shoulders, correct topline, lovely deep body with good spring of rib. Well angulated rear which he used to advantage when moving around the ring. Shown in magnificent coat and condition.

Group 4. By no means outshone was the E.S.S. It Ch  TRIMERE TOUGH COOKIE. Coming into her own, very balanced when stood. Lovely to go over. Excelled in neck and shoulders placement. good rear angulation without exaggeration. Her strength lies in her ability to cover ground as a E.S.S. should with the correct front forward action. Today she shone in the big ring environment.
