Bitch results

A good entry of 146 Border Collies awaited co-judge Heather Turner, judging dogs, and myself.  Terry Colwell was the Best in Show judge who also decide Best Puppy and Best Veteran. Best in Show was the bitch Sh.Ch. Goytre Daddy's Saucie Girl JW with the reserve CC winning bitch Fayken I am Love JW taking Reserve Best in Show.  Best Puppy was the dog Arrodare Let It Be.  Best Veteran was the Vintage Bitch Bordertime Andante at Hysteps – almost 11 years old and she had topped a great Vintage class, making the final cut in the challenge.  I was amazed to find that she doesn’t carry a title as she is a lovely quality Border Collie and a wonderful mover. In the bitch entry I found plenty of quality and the challenge and line up was a delight, culminating in the Best in Show winner and two Fayken litter sisters, both of whom should make their titles.  The same applies to my Best Puppy bitch Tonkory Some Have It JW.

Veteran Bitch (7, 0)

1. Fawcett’s Sh.Ch. Laceway Wiggly Giggly 9 years, lovely quality of excellent proportions with beautiful head and eye.  Correct bone.  Very good movement and carriage.

2. Haak/Den Dekker’s From Borders Home Vijeke Vjekova lovely size and proportions and very typical all throughout.  I’d prefer just a little more bone.  Very feminine in head.  I preferred the eye of the winner.

3. Bloomfield Goytre The Next Chapter of Olistazia

Vintage Bitch (7, 0) Remarkable class – a credit to the breed.

1. Austin’s Bordertime Andante at Hysteps 11 years old, beautiful bitch and on the move, she is all a Border Collie should be in carriage and action.  Lovely size and proportions.

2. Geering’s Sh.Ch. Beltane Ice Web 10 years in beautiful condition, just a touch bigger than the winner.  Beautiful eyes and expression.  Pressed hard – still retains all her qualities.

3. Smit’s From Borders Home Collectors Item

Minor Puppy Bitch (5, 1)

1. Fawcett’s Janbell Out of the Blue 7 months blue merle of beautiful colour and proportions.  Her head needs time to develop and nose pigment to fill in but scored in topline and proportions to win this.

2. Turner’s Littlethorn Aero 7 months, better in head than the winner but at the moment a little long for balance and can settle in topline.  A good mover.  Athletic and with good carriage.  Should come on well.

3. Williams/Lawrence’s Champarla Heavens to Betsy

 Puppy Bitch (6, 1)

 1. Gregory’s Tonkory Some Have It JW 11 months beautiful puppy stood out here, correct proportions, movement and carriage topped by a lovely head and eye.  Correct in coat, topline and flow over the croup.  Full of quality.

2. Haak/Den Dekker’s Bordersplace Queen Lucky Lady 10 months, standard size, correct proportions, coat and carries herself well.  Good head.  I preferred eyes and movement of the winner.  A lot of type.

3. Mead-Peacock Somniatis Harlee Quinn

Junior Bitch (10, 0) Disappointing class

1. Birchall’s Mojuca Prefect Bliss 13 months lovely type and the best movement and carriage of the class.  I’d prefer a darker eye but apart from that everything to like.

2. Kinton’s Kinaway I have a Dream JW 13 months very good type and proportions, good head and better eye than the winner but bunching herself up in topline and quarters on the day.

3. Austin’s Hysteps Made to Measure

Yearling Bitch (11, 3)

1. Entwistle’s Rogansrock Dream Maker at Beesting 21 months, full of breed type.  Flowing lines and quality all through.  Scored in neck and stride here.

2. Green’s Fayken the Devil in Me JW 19 months slightly different type being a little shorter on the leg but I liked her a lot for her beautiful head, eye and carriage on the move.  Not quite the front stride of the winner.

3. Gregory’s Tonkory Putting on the Style

Novice Bitch (5, 2)

 1. Birchall’s Mojuca Prefect Bliss see Junior

2. Greening’s Kanamaren Hold on My Heart 15 months standard size and good proportions and head.  Appeals in head and eye.  Stands on good legs and feet and goes soundly.  Can settle in tail carriage.  Won this place on rear action.

3. Johnson’s Tonkory Run Around Sue

Graduate Bitch (8, 3)

1. Wilkinson’s Altricia Only Love 3 years lovely size and type with beautiful head and eye.  Scored in neck and shoulder to win this.  Goes accurately but could just extend a little more considering her construction.  Lovely quality.

2. Austin’s Hysteps Made to Measure 13 months 3rd in Junior – I liked her a lot for type and ultrasound with good stride.  She is a little angular in her lines at the moment and looks a teenager but she should finish well.

3. Ambler’s Caleykiz Faith in Black with Jaztech

 Post Graduate Bitch (10, 0)

1. Smith’s Fayken Striptease JW 19 months blue, prick ears – a standout here.  Lovely quality throughout and in prime condition.  Excellent flowing lines to outline and very good movement and carriage.  Top quality.

 2. Preston’s Wizaland Soothe My Soul 3 years doesn’t help herself much but she has lovely type and proportions and a vey good head.  If she relaxed a little more she would look even better.  I liked her a lot.

3. Griffiths’ Janbell Zafrina

Mid Limit Bitch (4, 0)

1. Hartfield’s Moshanta Movin On JW ShCM 2 years, unexaggerated, quality bitch who moves correctly with good carriage.  I’d prefer her a little stronger in foreface but she scored in pasterns, feet and front action here.

2. Wiltshire’s Caleykiz Boogie On almost 3 years, I preferred her head to the winner, but a little week in pasterns and front fee which shows in her front action.  Great upper arm giving length of stride but a little over angulated in the rear.  Not in the coat of the winner but a quality bitch.

3. Walford/Large’s Wizaland Touch of Love

Limit Bitch (10, 3)

1. Green’s Fayken I Am Love JW 19 months excellent type and a very good mover.  I’d prefer just a touch more leg under her.  Excellent head, eye and ears.  Flowing outline held on the move.

2. Lucas’ Aculsia Princess of Diva 4 years all Border Collie in type and movement.  Loved her carriage on the move and scored in body proportions over.

3. Lampier’s Tonkory Mark Time AI

Open Bitch (10, 1)

1. Walters’ Sh.Ch. Goytre Daddy's Saucie Girl JW I have admired her since I judged her as a junior and so it was good to see her in the breed here and I found nothing to change my opinion that she is a top-class Border Collie who is a great mover and carries herself well.  Feminine head with correct bone and shown in top form.

2. Follwell’s Moshanta Must be Love at Janquillow 6 years, if I say old fashioned I mean it as a compliment.  Not flashy in any way but wonderful to watch her on the move and with a lovely head and eyes.  She may be a touch long for my idea of perfect balance but a lovely bitch.

3. Wiltshire’s Caleykiz Make Mya Aphrodite

Working Bitch (4, 0)

1. Hartfield’s Moshanta Movin On JW ShCM see Mid Limit

 3. Tiller’s Foxbarton Lady in Waiting JW

Members Open Bitch (7, 1)

2. Hartfield’s Laceway Etched in Gold JW 3 years clean lined bitch a little too severe over the croup and this shows in her tail carriage.

3. Turns’ Fyglia Mel Titania
