8th Championship Show - 03/04/05
Mrs Justine Blyth (Bustabones Staffords) - Tas
Thankyou to the ACT and Dist SBT Club for inviting me to judge their 8th Championship Show.
I had a wonderful day and was made to feel very welcome. I thought the quality of the entry was wonderful and there were some really hard classes to separate placegetters. The dogs were good and I was really happy with my winners, in some classes there were standout winners, but in others it was really hard work. Although I have to say that I thought there was more depth in the bitches,
there were a few classes where it was really tough to separate the placegetters and I was really quite spoiled for choice.
stood and admired the Challenge Bitch line up and thought it augured
really well for our breed.
found that mouths were for the most part good. I found only 3 undershot
and only about the same with untidy teeth. I did notice quite a few
exhibits with missing molars, this really needs the care and attention
of breeders to ensure that we dont end up with a commonly occurring
problem (as is experienced in some other breeds), always bearing in mind
what our breed was bred to do.
Canines were ok, most of the converging ones were in the younger classes and of course these may rectify themselves with age.
I certainly did not worry about broken teeth (especially in the older exhibits) Staffords being Staffords.
also did not notice any canines that appeared to have been filed down.
One area of concern I noticed, in some exhibits, was a very wide hind movement, almost a rotary action.
here is minimal and this does not enable the Stafford to move with an
economy of effort, movement required of our breed.
Heads were very good and most exhibits had the correct dark eye and rose ears, to complete the correct expression.
Fronts were mostly straight, although some exhibits may benefit from elbows slightly tighter.
Toplines were fairly good and hindquarters were well muscled and angulation was ok. Tails were carried fairly well.
thought the condition of the majority of the exhibits was excellent and
the entry of Staffords were happy and confident.
guess (unfortunately) that the colour of my own Staffords was reflected
in the colour of the majority of my entry, but I really enjoyed the
pieds, whites and reds making an appearance. Pigment and quality in the
reds, pieds and whites I thought was excellent.
must apologise for not having a full critique for the neuter class.
again to everyone for a wonderful entry.
