What a day for Quilesta at The Large Munsterlander Club Show 2015. A big thank you to our judge Becky Johnson for thinking so highly of our dogs. Well done to Moss for getting his first RCC, my parents were over the moon. So proud of Esther for getting her 2nd CC and to top it off BEST IN SHOW!! Also very proud of Bertie for his 2nd placing, Oscar also 2nd in Limit, Elke for her 2nd placing and Poppy with her 1st place in Post Graduate. To say I am on cloud nine is an understatement. A special well done to Caroline Middleton and Scout for getting their 1st CC and Carolynne Trowsdale for her RCC with Questa, well done to all the other exhibitors too. Thanks for taking the pictures Holly.
Esther's, Poppy's, Oscar's & Moss's critique reads as follows:-
Tordoff’s Raycris Quite Unique at Crumpsbrook. I thought this bitch was absolutely cracking and apparently liked her three years ago. For me she exemplifies the breed standard. Beautifully balanced all through she presents a superb outline on the stack which is retained in movement. Good head with dark eye and correctly set ears. She has desired arch to her neck, leading through to an excellent lay of shoulder and corresponding return of upper arm. Her chest is of the correct width and depth and she is well ribbed back. Strong, well muscled hindquarters with super bone and feet. Moved well both fore and aft and presented a good open side gait when viewed in profile. In excellent coat and condition and showed to perfection I had no hesitation in awarding her the BCC and ultimately BIS. I hope she gains her title as she is more than worthy and very typical of her sire to whom I awarded a CC five years ago.
Tordoff’s Crumpsbrook Rather Elegant. Litter sister to my PGD winner and daughter of eventual BIS. Very typical outline. Correct head and expression. Good layback of shoulder and corresponding return of upper arm. She had depth and width of chest and is well ribbed back with short strong loin. Well muscled hindquarters. Moved well with drive. I considered her in the challenge but as yet she has to reach the maturity of the top winners but a quality bitch nonetheless.
Tordoff’s Crumpsbrook Robinia. Not quite the balanced outline on the stack as the winner. Good head and expression. Correct lay of shoulder with corresponding return of upper arm. Good depth. A little long cast in the loin for my ideal preference. Good hindquarters. Moved well but not the drive of the winner.
Tordoff’s Crumpsbrook Rather Gallant. I was very impressed with this young dog. For me he has all the breed essentials which when he fully matures will make him a force to be reckoned with. Typical breed outline showing power, yet in no way coarse. Excellent head and eye. Correct lay back of shoulder and corresponding return of upper arm. Correctly ribbed leading to short strong loin. Well muscled hindquarters. Excellent bone and feet. On the move he was accurate fore and aft and shows good profile extension. RCC
