National Gundog 2015

Judge – Mrs L Nesbitt

I was greatly honoured to be invited to judge our lovely breed at this prestigious show. Many thanks to the committee for the invitation and the excellent hospitality and also to my efficient stewards, Grace and Chris Brown. I was delighted both by the quantity and the quality of the entry. As I do not show regularly at Ch. Shows, almost all of the dogs - and some of the exhibitors- were new to me. It was very encouraging to see a number of very promising youngsters which can only be good for the breed. Presentation was very good. Whilst I found no major health concerns, I was surprised to find a number of exhibits with dirty ears and this does need attention. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and felt very privileged to go over your lovely dogs. Thank you.

1st Winhampton Over The Yardarm Of Harrifield - Thorogood
Impressive 10 month old with the most gorgeous head. Appealing expression. Pleasing front and feet. Good bone and enough body for age. Moved well. Should have an exciting future.
2nd Whissgig The Bristolian - Sheppard
11 month old but more immature than 1. Smaller framed, with good head and eyes. Decent front and level topline. Moved OK once steadied. Has the essentials, just needs time to develop.

Loved this well constructed 2 year old on first sight and he did not disappoint on closer examination. Lovely, unexaggerated head. Good eyes and soft expression. Deep chest and well boned, straight legs. Well sprung ribs and long back. Muscular hind quarters. So well balanced. Moved with drive. Delighted to award his first CC. Hope he gets his title.
