Kerry Blue Terriers (No CC`s)

Some lovely kerry`s today, maybe there is too much hair from occiput to behind withers, causing some to look stuffy. Thank you to those who did turn out, its going to be very difficult for up and coming judges to get the numbers in terriers, with ever increasing fuel costs etc. The exhibitors seem to be choosing to exhibit at CC shows rather than non CC shows.
Thanks to my very able steward.

Junior Dog (2)

1st O`Rourkes Kebelack Rockin Robin, clean front, good head, nice topline, tail on top, in nice order.

2nd Baxter`s Arkama Locomotion, clean front, decent topline, good coat & texture, in nice order. Little nervy at times.

Open Dog (2)

Two Nice Kerry`s.

1st Munro`s Arkama Big Time, nice head & ears, clean front, lovely bone, good shoulders,short back, well sprung ribs, lovely topline, tail on top, well angulated and in spanking order. All male. BD,BOB. Shortlisted in group.

2nd Dale & Cooper`s Kamaghan Ace Lynnsto, real quality head & ears, clean front, nice shoulders (though there is a build up of hair that doesn’t do justice to his topline. Good topline & tail on top. Very nice dog indeed, should get there. Spoiled his chances by being a bit too over enthusiastic standing in the line up. Certainly all Kerry, I liked him. Res BD.

Junior Bitch (1)

1st Dale & Coopers Gaelgorm Dark Thoughts for Lynnsto, clean front, nice bone, good shoulders, nice topline,tail on top,in lovely order.

PG Bitch (1)

1st Munro`s Saredon Showtime to Arkama, Pretty young bitch, nice head & ears, clean front, best of shoulders, compact. Lovely topline, well angulated & went well on the move. In nice condition, should have a bright future.

Open Bitch (2)

1st Ensell`s Nemiah Born of an Angel, lovely typy kerry, on her toes, ultra feminine headpiece, Lovely ears, clean front, well off for bone. Good topline (but had a big crest from occiput to well behind withers which spoiled her neckline today) tail on top, good coat & texture, moved well. Should gain her title with ease. A very nice kerry.
