WELKS, 2013

Thank you for such a lovely entry considering  there were no CC's on offer.

PD (2) 1 Geddes' Ingledene Spirit Of Legend  BP, RBD Stunning 6 months old S/W with tremendous ring presence for one so  young. Masculine well balanced head, flat skull, dark eye full of expression,  well carried ears. Lovely arched neck set into well angulated shoulders.  Correct topline, deep chest, well sprung ribs, good coat texture. Moved so  freely and correctly on good legs and wonderfully tight feet. 2 Aikman's Erjon  Extol Joins Welanga A lovely Tri. Lovely head, eye, ears, correct topline, good  shoulders, front and well ribbed. Moved well.
JD (1) 1 Barrett's Brooklynson  Bruce Willis BD, BOB Quality all the way through. A very impressive S/W shown  in tip top condition. The very best of heads, dark eye, dreamy expression. Good  length of neck, well angulated shoulders, deep chest, well sprung ribs, good  legs and feet. Really excelled on the move, with good reach and power at the  rear. A real pleasure to go over this beautiful and sound male.

PGD (2)  1 Corben's Caprioara Heaven Can Wait  Masculine head, dark eye but fraction rounder which spoils the  expression. Correctly made throughout, moved well. 2 Skinner's Nikal It's Gud  To Be Black Smart tri with nice head, and okay front. Ribs a fraction short and  moved close at the rear.

OD (6, 2) 1 Boyle's Barrenclough Touch Of Class  JW Very smart shaded S/W. Nice head, good length of neck, well angulated  shoulder, deep chest, well ribbed up. Correct topline. Moved very well. 2  Corben's Wicani Spectral Blue Via Capridara Nicely headed B/M. Well conformed  through and this showed in the true free movement. Would prefer tighter feet. 3  Cunnington's Pellismer Firecracker.

PB (3, 1) 1 Boyle's Barrenclough  Golden Gem. Pretty S/W with lovely head, nicely shaped eye, good ears, well  made throughout. Moved freely.2 James' All Starry Eyed. The head of this B/M  still needs to develop to reach full potential. Okay front, neck and topline.  Not in full coat.

JB (4)1 Barrett's Brooklynson Myley Cyrus With the  prettiest of heads this S/W is a real stunner and won BB with ease. Standing  she presents a lovely outline and I was not disappointed when going over her.  Her conformation is good throughout and her movement is a joy to watch. Well  presented in good condition. 2 Corben's Raven Skye Eight Below. B/M of lovely colour. Lovely femine head with  the sweetest of expressions. Well made throughout. Very promising, just needs  to settle and calm down a bit. 3 Whitaker's Jopium Magical Dream.

PGB (8,1)1  Newton's Fiorcara Sweet Rhapsody RBB This very pretty S/W presents a wonderful  outline and does not disappoint when going over her. Beautiful head with dark  expressive eyes, well set and carried ears, nicely arched neck, correct  shoulder angulation, good front and spring of rib. Moved with purpose. 2  Geddes' Ingledene All Dressd In Blue JW B/M with lovely expression and clear  coat colour. Correctly constructed and well presented. Let down on the move by  lack of any real extension in front. 3 Corben's Caprioara Taihatian Pearl.

OB (10,4) 1 Whitaker's Sabiha's Sweet Melody. Extremely pretty S/W. Well  balanced head, dark eye with sweet expression, correct well carried ears.  Arched neck, good shoulders and front, well spring ribs, correct topline. Moved  well, but feet could be tighter. 2 Milligan's Ch Alfsden Hakuna Matata Sh CM.  This tri is so well made throughout and ultra sound on the move. Presents a very  pleasing outline. Well presented. Very close decision. 3 Boyle's Uffspring  Unchained Melody Over Barrenclough JW
