Judges by Mrs Z Thorn Andrews
PD (7) All lovely babies. 1 Allcock & Vincent’s Yama Jeremy Sleepyhollow, nicely evenly marked in head, maybe lips could meet more level. Nose well set in good front body for age & rear, moved well holding perfect tail. Very promising indeed. BP; 2 Nishigaki’s Charnell Koji, nice boy, moving well, good to go over. Markings pretty uneven & black down one leg. Good shapely sound boy, well handled & presented; 3 Rushton’s Nisyros Willie Rushchin. JD (6) 1 Farmer’s Sangria Celebrity, liked his head, wide cushioned muzzle, enough rise in skull, well marked head & body, very true front & correct hare feet. Needs a little more rear angulation & he does move close going away. Holds himself very proudly in profile gait; 2 Allcock, Lindsay & Pipe’s Fralee Anthony Sleepyhollow, lovely head, nose set well between the eyes, OK in front. Needs more length of neck & a more level topline. Rather roached. Good rear, nicely marked coat & colour; 3 Allitt’s Charnell Kenji at Tillashby. PGD (10) Nice class. 1 Birkett’s Arranbrook Silver Insignia at Windleview, evenly marked, especially on head. Well set nose, wide muzzle. Eyes a little too small. Good true front, OK in body. Moved a bit too close going away but holds his outline in profile, nice cobby build & well carried over tail; 2 Allcock & Hampton’s Bonniroy Yasebai Sleepyhollow, lovely outline moving, good outline for proportions. Stands too straight in rear & hocks rather weak. I liked his head & nose placement, good head shape & ears set nicely, tail carried well over a finely marked body; 3 Farmer’s Sangria Paparazzi. LD (10) Difficult to find a type here. A lot were poor in rear & straight in stifles & hocks. 1 Willis’ Dainichi Sunyano, nice to go over, good rise in skull, wide muzzle, good body & rear, moved pretty well. Too much grey in tail otherwise well marked; 2 Thomas’ Javalcy Call Me Mr Chivers, cheeky r/w, lacks a few teeth & eyes could be bigger. Lovely boy, really moves out smartly & so well marked. When he gets his act together should do well; 3 Talbot’s Dalehouse Snap Dragon at Silmacs. OD (6) 1 Banks’ Ch Homerbrent Kotaishi of Choya, lovely boy, super head, even head markings & blaze, wide spaced eyes, good front & rear, nicely marked body, moved true both ways, charming temperament. CC & BOB; 2 Allcock’s Sleepyhollow Raphael, had the most typical front movement in the class, high stepping, good rise in skull. Lips could be more level & needs a touch more chin. Well bodied, liked his angulation at rear & tail set. Moving very close going away. RCC; 3 Carter-Davidson & Carter-Davidson’s Hysterical Samurai Sou at Sharlarna.
PB (8) Lovely class. 1 Willis’ Jonsville Oriana Dainichi, sound & free moving, lovely skull & width of muzzle, nose set between eyes, good front & rear mover. Slightly heavily marked in body coat. Good head markings & blaze; 2 Jolley’s Sharlana’s Dancing Queen at Dekobras, cheeky girl, high stepping in front which was good to see. Pleasing head & neck. Not quite as coordinated as 1 & can still improve in rear movement. Fine bone & overall very promising; 3 Thomas’ Javalcy Because I’m Worth It. JB (4) 1 Rees’ Sangria Mosaic, sound free mover, liked her feminine head, good skull shape, eyes set well & has that prized look of astonishment, they were a bit light in colour though. Nice to go over, needs a little more body & has some ticking in her back coat. Ideal proportions of height to length; 2 Banks’ Choya Jamiko, needs a lot more body & could be stronger. Well angulated, good level back, well set tail, fair head & quite well marked. Just in need of some exercise & more body; 3 Flynn’s Linjato Amaya. PGB (6) 1 Oatridge’s Dalehouse Crystal Tips, high quality & lovely type, beautiful head, even markings, well placed nose not set too high or low. Good front, body, topline & rear, some muscle to give her impulsion on the move. Coat in good order & overall just a lovely sound Chin. RCC; 2 Smith & Smith’s Sidlyn Song Of The Wind, a little beauty. Not quite so up on the leg for her length of back as 1 but moved out nicely. Beautifully marked coat, keeps level backline on the move; 3 Wallhead’s Fralee Elsie. LB (8) 1 Steele’s Javalcy China Doll at Threadgold, stood out a mile in this class. One black marked back leg which detracts a touch & a fine blaze in head. Good head shape, eyes nicely set & lovely ears, excellent all through to go over & very true moving all round. Good type & a lovely quality. CC; 2 Mason’s Sleepyhollow La Calisto, pleasing width of muzzle & nose set well between the eyes. OK in front, well ribbed, excellent topline. A bit unsteady in rear but it could have been the wind unsettling her a little. In good coat; 3 Allcock, Lindsay & Pipe’s Sleepyhollow Sapphire Diva at Anjuli. OB (6) 1 J China Doll at T; 2 Pearce & Hann’s Stepheter Wanna Shout for Rakuchin, beautiful head markings, very Japanese. Maybe pigment on nose could be blacker. Lovely front & body, excellent front movement, high set tail. A little weaker in hocks than 1 but a gorgeous high step in profile at the front; 3 Spavin Harrison’s Nisyros Chindy Lauper Sings Sholeen.
