Championship Show - Sunday 13th August 2017
Breed Specialist Judge - Mrs Karon Jackson (Jackabyte UK)
I would firstly like to express my sincere thanks to the Club and Committee for inviting me to step in and Judge at this first class well organised, top speciality breed club show. My thanks also to my ring stewards and the Photographer, Fiona, who took some fabulous photos. Overall I found exhibits to be of good breed type with only a few who lacked the basic starting block for the breed. Most had good frame, bone, head shape and underjaw but mouth faults were very evident with some very tight canines and some even converging whilst others had untidy incisors or dirty teeth. Dentition is an area of concern to any Judge and breeder/exhibitor alike so in my own opinion, it is a subject that needs to be looked at in any breeding programme. Fitness it a bug bear of mine, I do like to see shape and muscle definition in the correct proportion so I was aware of some exhibits being quite soft to touch. All in all, good type is evident overall with just odd issues that could be addressed to improve the quality of stock you have. And remember, this is only MY opinion – others have their own whether we be right or wrong. Thank you all for your sportsmanship and compliments after the show.
