Judges' Critiques

Dogs - Ms D Garrett

I would like to say what a lovely day I had and what a wonderful hardworking committee you have with the majority of owners dong their bit with the stalls etc. The raffle must have a special mention too. I found the temperaments of all the hound – without exception – to be much improved I found only one bad mouth but sadly a lot of straight fronts having said that I was pleased with my winning hounds and my co-judge and I agreed on the principle winners.

I was delighted to judge at this well run show, the atmosphere was lovely & over £900 was raised for less fortunate Ridgebacks. I had a super entry with some lovely quality dogs, many thanks to the committee for allowing me this opportunity & to my co-judge Denise Garratt

MPB (2,1)

1st. Pegg’s – Malifort Morowa. Pretty girl of almost 8 months, nice head & dark eye, pleasing forehand, good bone & substance, good body shape, well put together hindquarters. She was full of mischief & was messing around moving a little wide in front, she moved out well in profile.  

PB (9,4)

1st. Dolphin’s – Marakele Ascari. Well made baby of 10 months, nice head & expression, good neck & shoulder, good body & hindquarters. She needs to strengthen in topline a little, but has a lovely body shape. Moved out well in profile, but is a little close behind at the present time. BPB.
2nd. Ollerhead’s – Marakele Tamora. Very close up to one & I now see they are litter sisters. Lovely head & expression, good forehand, lovely body shape & good hindquarters. She just needs to tighten up all round to complete the picture.

She is a lovely type bitch, who moves so well in profile & is very good behind. She just turns her front leg, which I’m afraid, cost her any higher placing.
2nd. Davis’ - Veldtkammer Reddy for This at Hesslewell. Balanced girl, good straight front & neat feet, good topline & body condition. Lacks a little in head for my liking, but she has a good eye. Moved well round the ring.
