STAKES CLASSES – Judge’s Critiques
Firstly I would like to congratulate the NEFRA committee and all the helpers for all their effort in putting on such a wonderful event. It was lovely to see everyone enjoying all the different activities with such a lovely atmosphere.
It was a pleasure to be able to judge the stakes classes and I was very pleased with the lovely entry of quality dogs some of whom unfortunately had to go cardless but could easily have changed places on another day.
CLASS 26. PUPPY DOG OR BITCH ( 3, 1A )
1st. HEWISON`S SELLOANA MONOCEROS At 11mnths. old this lovely young bitch is showing plenty of promise . Correct size for age with well moulded feminine head, kind dark eye with soft expression and neat well set on ears. Lovely well balanced overall shape with good angulation front and rear. Good reach of neck and level topline. Moved well.
2nd. HARLEY`S FRIIA LUSUN BRING ME SUNSHINE NAF This 6mnth little girl is still very much a baby, but having said that she was not at all phased by being in the ring and stood very well for me to go over her. She has a lovely head with appealing expression, good construction throughout, level topline and ever wagging tail. Moved well around the ring .
CLASS 27. OPEN DOG OR BITCH ( 15, 5A )
There were some lovely dogs in this class which made it hard to chose and was splitting hairs n my final decisions.
1st. BELLAMY`S SH.CH.WOODFINCHMASQUERADE A 3yr.old dog who I did well in the virtual Open Show that Nefra held in 2021 so it was nice to be able to put hands on and reaffirm what I had seen last year. He is a well constructed dog with a lovely balanced outline. A handsome young boy with king eye. Prominent forechest with good bone and lovely tight feet . Moved well with drive.
2nd. GALE`S WILLOWSWIND NETTE LARK JW 6yr.old bitch with a lovely head and soft expression. Good front assembly and gradual spring of rib to well angulated hind quarters with correct bend of stifle. Another with excellent tight feet, moving freely round the ring.
CLASS 28. VETERAN DOG OR BITCH ( 4 )
A lovely class of veterans who belie their age .
1st. HEWISON`S DONASCIMENTO DANILO FROM CASBLAIDD SGWC KCWGC A lovely 9yr. old bitch of correct size. Pretty feminine head with kind eye. Presenting a lovely balanced outline. Well constructed with good front and rear angulation , good depth of brisket and prominent forechest .Well muscled hindquarters. Moved soundly with drive.
2nd. EGGINTON`S PAJANBECK I PUT A SPELL ON YOU Another lovely bitch of 7yrs. She has a lovely feminine head with dark kind eye. Good reach of neck into well laid shoulder and level topline, correct angulation to front and rear with moderate bend of stifle . Moved well but not quite the drive of 1.
