MINOR PUPPY DOG (3 Entries) Abs: 1
This seven month old baby is surprisingly well finished for age, beautifully boned and bodied. Pleasant head, good neck and forehand, excellent feet; excellent topline, croup and hindquarters. Lovely side action. Very promising youngster.
At Just six months he is a very shapely baby, sweet head, good front
for his age, good topline but tends to slope off over his croup. Free
side action, but very babyish when coming and going away. A very pleasant

POST GRADUATE DOG (6 Entries) Abs: 3
Most handsome dog of 21 months, a very exciting prospect for the future. Very nice head, good neck well set into very good shoulders; still somewhat upright over the upper arm and would like to see more fill in front, proper bone for size. Firm topline, good croup and tail set, nicely angulated hindquarters. Excels in his free ground covering side action, but still needs to strengthen behind as yet. Overall a very well balanced dog.
Harropine Celtic Warrior For Sorimsway. Very shapely dog, much younger looking overall, very nice head, neck and front, very forward set, and needs forechest, excellent flow over the topline to croup. Nicely angulated hindquarters, rather short tail. Needs to deepen in chest for overall balance. Free and easy side but very loose in front action, especially pasterns.

1st: WRAGG'S Neroche Irving
Beautifully proportioned and balanced three year old dog. Handsome masculine head, excellent neck and shoulders, and nice fill to front; proper bone for size, good feet. Excellent, firm, well muscled topline well set croup, strong hindquarters. Lovely mover, strong elastic and true. A lovely example of his breed, and with no exaggerations.
Ghiltan Hero. Another fine example of type in this six year old; standing he presents such a beautiful outline. Pleasant head, excellent neck and forehand, excellent bone for size, feet rather long and would like more depth of pad. Wonderful flow over the topline and croup to well angulated hindquarters. Although a very good mover, could show more enthusiasm.

This six year old is of wonderfully old-fashioned type and I just loved him! Lovely head with beautifully folded, rather deep set, ears, excellent neck and forehand, proper bone for size, somewhat long feet, beautiful definition to underline, most beautiful flow over the topline and croup to well angulated hindquarters.Beautiful true rear action, and also very clean in front action. Lovely free side action once he got going. Altogether a lovely dog; and I note he is through the sire Wild West, to my Crufts Dog CC winner from a number of years ago, Peacemaker, and in so many respects very similar.
Kilbourne Hector To Oelmuhle. Very much liked this three year old dog, he has a lovely outline, rather longer in overall proportions but still very much in balance. Lovely head, somewhat round eye and ears could be better folded,excellent neck, shoulder and forequarters. Proper bone for size. Strong and well muscled topline, well defined , excellent croup and hindquarters. Most impressive on the move, where he is light, free and covers the ground. Beautiful young dog who should mature into an even better hound with age.

MINOR PUPPY BITCH (5 Entries) Abs: 0
Peach's Nimloth Brooke Of Kilbourne. Very similar to her litter brother who won PD, this seven month old baby is very well balanced and so well finished for her age. Lovely head with small well folded, well set ears, giving this pretty expression. Good neck and front, tidy over the elbows, very nice topline and finish over the croup and hindquarters. Free and happy mover. Scored over the older bitch puppy on her true action.
Beardswood Rhymi. Just six months old, and with a wonderful outline, but understandably not as together on the move. Lovely head, good front, proper bone for size, wonderful flow over the topline and croup to nicely angulated hindquarters. Certainly a most promising baby.

Very well grown nine month old baby, with a lovely outline. Lovely head and expression, good neck,somewhat forward set, very good bone for size. Excellent topline, croup and hindquarters, which still need to strengthen. Free and fluid side action. Another most promising puppy.
Brylach Ophelia Of Sorisway. Very nice dark bitch, very nearly 12 months of age, rather more angular in outline. Nice feminine head, rather small eyes, good neck, forward set front, with upright upper arm at present, proper bone for size. Firm topline, croup rather steep; hindquarters could show more angulation and has rather high hocks. Free side action, but tends to move high and loose in front.

Mooney's Rosslyn Quartet. Beautiful young bitch of 14 months, stands out for her wonderful light and elastic ground covering action. Delightful head, good ears, good neck and forehand, proper bone for size, with lovely feet. Excellent topline, croup and hindquarters. Certainly one for the future!
Gentlehun Adelaide Of Kaleginy. Another shapely youngster, pleasant head, nice over the front with proper bone for size, good topline, croup and hindquarters. Very nice side action, free and easy.
Class 2368 PGB (11 Entries) Abs: 2
Dark four year old bitch of lovely type and outline, and stood out for her smooth, lithe action. Lovely head and expression, very good neck and forehand, proper bone for size, excellent over the topline and croup, nicely angulated strong hindquarters. Free and true mover, and overall a really well balanced bitch of lovely quality. I note that she is litter sister to the Bitch CC winner.

Cassacre Aelfrida Of Ghiltan. Three year old bitch of lovely type. Beautiful head and expression, good neck and front, proper bone for size, tends to toe out from the pasterns and rather long feet.

Class 2369 LB (8 Entries) Abs: 1
Not as good a class as the previous class. 1 Barter & Christian's Hyndsight Wind Dancer Of Ehlaradawn. Two year old of very good outline and type, still rather immature looking, who won the class on her free ground covering action. Nice head and expression, good neck and front, rather forward set, proper bone for size, excellent top line but croup rather steep, good hindquarters.
Kilbourne Teine. Four year old bitch not making the most of herself. Nice head, good neck and forehand, very good over the top line and croup to nicely angulated hindquarters. Wish she had used her quarters better as she was not very free on the move, with rather a limited side action.
Class 2370 OB (7 Entries) Abs: 2
How beautifully this bitch has matured since I last judged her; she must now be at her prime. Lovely head and expression, well folded ears, just the right amount of strength in her neck to give her balance, excellent well angulated front, proper bone for size, somewhat long feet, excellent depth of body with nicely defined underline, good croup to strong hindquarters of proper angulation. Overall so well balanced, that nothing takes away from the beautiful overall picture. And she moves as well as she looks, which is not always the case. A truly beautiful bitch!
Ch Greyflax Crystal. A year younger and not in quite the sparkling condition of the winner, still a lovely bitch of beautiful type. Lovely head, very good neck and front, proper bone for size, good firm topline, well set croup and nicely angulated hindquarters. Free and sometimes a bit extravagant mover. Like her very much and I feel she will be better yet with age.

Wilson's Killoeter Lurag For Hamiltonhill. What
a beautiful in this seven year old bitch. Very beautiful head and expression,
nice over the neck and front, proper bone for size, good flow over the
topline to nicely set croup. Lovely hindquarters, which are starting
to show the effects of ge. Really lovely to see her move from the side,
so easy and with that additional dignity that comes with maturity. Perhaps
not as strong coming and going any more but for sheer breed type she
had to win the Res. CC.
Very well preserved dark bitch of seven years.
Lovely greying face with beautiful dark eyes, good neck and front, excellent
flow over the topline to well set croup and strong hindquarters. Moved
verynicely and freely
