Judge Mr J Horswell
Real pleasure to judge this, one of my favourite breeds which I have owned in the past. Soundness was impressive on the day, & great to see so many super youngsters.
MPD (1) 1 Farmer’s Sangria War Lord, super pup to start, so sound on the move, just needs to coat & body up. Has a good head, series of curves. Lovely eye & expression. Correct neck. Super front. Level topline with high set tail could maybe be slightly more let down at rear. Lovely quality. Found him quite enchanting. BP, delighted to see him get PG4. PD (0). JD (4,1a) 1 Bartlett’s Jonsville Secret Spy On Pebblecombe, not helping his handler at all on the move. He is so very well made & good moving when he got going. Liked his head, enough cushioning & super eye & expression. Correct neck. Very good front. Super body & rib. Level topline, good rear; 2 Banks’ Choya Masuyo, shows so very well. He has a good outline & proportions. Well rounded skull. Nice eyes. Correct neck. Just needs a little more body & to be tidier out & back, but very stylish in profile where he holds his level topline; 3 Allcock & Hampton’s Sleepyhollow Moulin Rouge. PGD (1) 1 Quinn’s Mattadam Samurai at Sharlarna, lots to like about this dog. He has a cobby body with super width of chest & spring of ribs. Quite a large head, good eye & expression. Well placed nose. Could have just a fraction more neck & stand straighter in front. Level topline with high set tail. Very stylish on the move. LD (6) 1 Farmer’s Sangria Back To The Future, sound & well made dog. A nice size & everything is in proportion. Lovely skull. Dark eyes, well cushioned muzzle. Correct neck. Straight front.

RCC; 2 Blow & Allen’s Wyndcatch Take It, liked his shape & has a very good body, plenty of width with well sprung ribs & fairly short in back. Large & masculine head. Rounded skull, well cushioned. Correct neck. Not the front quite of 1 well made rear. He too is very good in profile action; 3 Doran’s Shardlow Mikado. OD (4) 1 Allcock’s Ch Sleepyhollow Robson, he is just super. Lovely for type, so cobby & such a good mover, accurate out & back & full of style in profile, goes so well, full of his importance. Large head with a good skull. Correct neck.

Correct neck. Well sprung ribs. Level in topline. So accurate out & back.

Was totally captivated with her. CC 2 Allcock’s Sleepyhollow Mimi, lovely shape. Like her head very much. Large eyes, correct expression. Would prefer just a little more neck & topline can settle.
