Clumber Spaniel Championship Show 2015 – Specials

Mr K Payne

Firstly I’d like to thank the Officers & Committee, for giving me the opportunity to judge these classes at their Championship Show. Secondly I would like to thank the exhibitors who entered under me & who accepted my placings with applause for every class winner. There was a spacious outside ring & the sun shone all day, perfect!

Special Junior Dog or Bitch 5 Entries, Absent: 0
1st Winhampton Over The Yardarm At Harrifield - Thorogood
A well made young man, just out of Puppy, not overdone in anyway. Standing on straight well boned legs & good feet, when he matures I have no doubt he will reach the upper house! He has the correct head for his age, broad on top with a square muzzle, clean eyes of the correct dark amber colour. Super angles for & aft, in great coat & condition, he moved true back & forth & was effortless around the ring.
2nd Mischievous Maeve With Maursett - Taylor
Delightful 8 month old bitch who I would have gladly taken home! Everything in the right place for her age, super bone & feet, the most feminine expression, that just melted me. Strong sloping shoulders & great turn of stifle that meant this was another exhibit who moved so well & true. Another presented in good coat & condition.

Special Post Graduate Dog or Bitch 7 Entries, Absent: 1
1st Creeaark Fantastica - Hirst
Bitch coming up to 2.5 years & another who is well made & of a type I liked on the day. In cracking coat put down in tip top condition. Feminine head & another with the correct eye & expression I was looking for. Good length of neck into well laid, strong shoulders, well sprung ribs & another with the correct bend of stifle. Standing on straight strong legs & round feet, she moved out well & true.
2nd Micklemess Sunny Dawn - Page
Another bitch of a size & type I liked, I see she shares the same sire as 1. Nothing overdone, a feminine headed bitch again with the expression & eye I was looking for. Great angles for & aft, in great coat & condition & again another who could move correctly. 2 nice bitches.

1st Sugar Loaf Maya Of Tikal Nord JV-11 (IMP SWE) - Page
4yr old bitch whose size & type appealed to me. Enough bone for a bitch & round feet, good length of neck into well laid shoulders. Well sprung ribs, carried well back, good angulation for & aft. Loved her head & expression, moved out well, straight & true on the up & down & had style & drive on the go around- Best Special Award
2nd Eilandon Pink Penelope Of Kirkara - Kirkman
A different type of bitch to my winner. I liked her clean lines, but she couldn’t compete with the winner today on movement. Sweet feminine head, correct expression & no coarseness. Good length of neck into well laid shoulders, tight round feet & good bone. Another shown in good coat & condition
