The Irish Setter Breeders Club Southern Open Show  Mr J Hall (Tarodene)

The ISBC held their Open Show at Frogmore, Camberley.  My thanks to the committee for the privilege of judging at our premier club.

A very hot day which may have resulted in a high number of absentees.  No bad mouths on the day, but movement must be addressed.

3 Rorkes Seatamarisk Wayfarer At Zakhan


1 Richardsons Sh Ch Kirkavagh Fidalgo JW
RES Best Dog A worthy show champion, I love this dogs head.  Excellent shoulders into a good top line.  Good feet.  Just needs a little more muscle tone.  Excellent movement.



1 Wards Muharraq Spring Rhapsody at Almerja
Best Dog & Best In Show.  His overall balance combined with his free flowing movement, plus that extra sparkle factor made him stand out.  In good hard condition.  He did not show his eleven years.  Very well presrved from his clean teeth to his coat condition.  This made him the star of the day, and he just got stronger as the the day went on.  How this dog has not gained his title surprises me.  Well done.
2 Richardsons Shandwick Arathorn
3 Edwards Sh Ch Delsanto Luke
