My grateful thanks to the exhibitors who travelled such long distances over land and sea to be here today. I hope you all had a great day, I certainly did, judging such good quality Buhunds. A recent judge of the breed was most complimentary about breeders’ ability to produce so many good quality Buhunds despite the constraints that a very rare breed such as ours necessarily faces. I wholeheartedly agree with him, and offer my congratulations to the breeders and exhibitors.
JD (1) 1 Sercombe’s Trelowen Colane. Young black puppy. Square in outline and long on the leg. Correctly angulated with a good, light action, particularly co-ordinated and strong in rear for one so young. I thought him a most interesting prospect with plenty of scope to mature. BP.
LD (2) 1 Walmsley’s Blakk Extacy Van Koekie’s Ranch (Imp). Such a difficult decision between these two. This lad is fully mature and has an extremely good front assembly with legs well under him and providing super reach and extension in profile movement. Very well balanced in head with sufficient width of muzzle and broad, flat skull. Great top line standing and moving. I would like him a little shorter, but nevertheless, his many qualities that cannot be ignored. 2 Cobb & Kent’s Knytshall Diamond Ted. Up to size like the winner with excellent bone and substance. Lovely head proportions with flat skull and correct ears. Nice length of neck and super firm topline. I think this lad is really most promising and not dissimilar to my CC winner. Just lacking the maturity through the middle, just as my CC winner did as a youngster.
OD (1) 1 Garvie’s Rhialis Apollo. A really beautifully balanced dog of good size. Balanced for bone and good substance with ribs carried well back and short, strong loin. Good neck and topline with a superb tail set and curl. Well proportioned head with flat skull, but I felt a little too round in eye. Tight and correct feet. Moved precisely. Res CC.
VD (1) 1 Sercombe’s Ch Trelowen Conar Tun. Super mature lad. Good size and strongly built. Excellent bone and well ribbed. In profile has sufficient neck to balance his strength. Topline excellent as is tail set, single curl is fine. Very nicely balanced in head with an excellent eye and good ear. I would like him a little flatter in skull and feet tighter. He does move wonderfully well with great balance and ground covering reach. I had no hesitation in awarding him the CC and BOB. Very proud to see he won 4th in the Pastoral Veteran Group. Well deserved.
JB (1) 1 Crocker’s Knytshall Noor Ul Ain. I love the balance of this bitch. She really does present a super picture. A little finer throughout than I prefer, but still perfectly within standard. Good length neck well set into shoulders and balances well her lovely square outline. A very tidy mover indeed. Her tail is well set and curled and although she wasn’t too happy today I saw sufficient on the move to merit her placing and this critique. A little fine in head, but this may well come with maturity.
PGB (1) Knytshall Noor Ul Ain.
LB (3) 1 Gillies & Shorer-Wheeler’s Kimura’s Vera With Tapui (Imp Nor). Very Buhund-like with an obvious mind of her own! Impressed with her overall balance and outline. She is so very well ribbed back giving an excellent underline with not too much tuck up at the loin. Sufficient neck well laid into good shoulders, and firm level topline. Very well balanced in head with good skull and muzzle proportions. Dark, expressive eye, but I would like a tad smaller. Lowish tail set but well curled and centrally held. Pushed hard by second but preferred her front reach. In the challenge her super balance and good stride merited the Reserve CC. 2 Cobb & Kent’s Knytshall Angel Delight
RL1Ex. A slower maturing type of bitch that I am sure will gain her title. She is as well balanced as my winner having a square outline, strong, level topline and good neck length to create a lovely balanced outlook. Not quite the reach in front of my winner, but really splitting hairs. 3 Garvie’s Rhialis Lucina.
OB (5) Whew, what a really fabulous class. On another day all five would receive CC’s off me. Truly lovely for a judge to be honoured with separating such wonderful quality bitches. 1 Rumsey’s Arnscroft Di Nah May. Such a difficult bitch to assess properly. Standing, she is a very nice bitch, size, bone and substance are good. Strong in rib and topline, though a touch wide in chest. Tail set is fair with an excellent curl. Most attractive in head. However, whether it is the slightly low tail set or not being in full coat she does appear a little longer for perfect balance. And then she moves. She does have excellent drive and reach, but more than that she pulls herself together, shortens up, retains a wonderful balance without effort, and looks every inch the Champion. That was more than enough for me. Congratulations on her third CC. 2 Sercombe’s Ir Ch Tokyn Sequoia. I’ve been an admirer of this bitch for a long time. Like my winner perhaps not in her best coat. I love her size and substance, so well ribbed back and short in loin. Stands so well over her ground and does not disappoint on the move. So many excellent qualities I want to see in a Buhund. In the final analysis I couldn’t accept her very fine muzzle. She is lovely though. 3 Garvie’s Ch Rhialis Psyche ShCM.
