Show Notes:

Only to be published by Dog World, Our Dogs, Southern Border Terrier Club and Border Terrier.org.uk Stewart McPherson (Brumberhill)

Show Critique:

My thanks, to the Club, for the invitation to judge their Club Show and the hospitality shown to Peter and myself. Thanks, also, to my Stewards, Wendy Mooney and Denise Townsend, who valiantly coped with the paperwork in the, at times, rather blustery conditions, keeping everything going smoothly! Thank you to the exhibitors, also, who entered for my opinion. The grass, in the ring, wasn’t exactly “bowling green”, so it certainly sorted out the good from the bad, on the move!
As is usual, from me, not an “everything in the garden is rosy” preamble! After 35 years, living and breathing Border Terriers, I tell it, as I see it!
As with my last appointment, Crufts, it is just over a 3 year gap, since I judged the Breed in the UK. I had obviously made my point, last time, that I wouldn’t pass the excessively broad skull, almost caricature like, that had become popular, despite the Standard asking for “Head like that of an Otter. Moderately broad in skull”, as there were none I thought overdone, on the day. I think, the problem lies, possibly, that the Standard doesn’t specify, as I was taught, that it refers to English River Otter, some people, mistakenly thinking the commoner headed Sea Otter, or deeper stopped Asian Short Clawed Otter is being referred to. There is a big difference between the three! Not helped by critiques, apparently, praising “broad” skulls, which, to me, sends out the wrong signals!
At Crufts, I had thought the breed had turned a corner, with regard to forehands ie. shoulder and upper arm construction…….how wrong was I?!!! I think I had the full range of faults today, upright shoulders, short upper arm, out at the elbow, sometimes all on the same exhibit! The widest part of a Border Terrier, “Essentially a working Terrier”, bred to go to ground, shouldn’t be the elbows, this fault usually being because the forehand isn’t set on the body correctly, being too far forward, due to a short, steep upper arm, usually, although not always, accompanied by an upright shoulder. These faults also affect that other line from the Standard “Capable of following a horse”, as, due to the incorrect angles, the movement is no longer efficient, being restricted to a shorter, hackneyed, step in profile, almost as though they are walking on hot coals, due to the foreleg not reaching full extension. It may look ok, coming and going, being accurate, as the shorter stride means there is less room for error, but the lack of a ground covering stride would mean the dog working twice as hard on the move, doing its job, soon becoming exhausted. This was brought home to me, discussing the stamina of various dogs with a friend, his son exercising their two Border Terrier champions chasing after him, on horseback, around a field. The accurate mover, with the shorter stride was soon exhausted, having had to work twice as hard, whereas the more angulated one, with the longer, ground covering stride, was up for more! Like, usually breeds like, good forehands being bred for. They don’t appear as if by magic! I am well aware that these faults are seemingly being passed by Judges, not just in the UK, at the very highest level, but that doesn’t mean that they are either correct or desirable and they are very difficult to breed out. I’m left wondering, having read a number of critiques, then having seen, or judged the dogs being praised, are the Seminars failing to educate the correct mechanics of economical movement, or are people just not seeing the movement faults, as long as its trots up and down, with its head and tail up, showing nicely for the Judge! Conversely, as ever, hind movement was pretty good.
It was interesting to note that those I have rewarded in the past, with the correct forehands and narrow fronts, at Crufts and previous engagements, came back, having retained their virtues and have also passed the same, narrow, lithe bodylines on to the next generation. If they are made right, they last right! A working Terrier, whose front is going, or has gone, by the time it is reaching maturity, is neither use nor ornament and is a liability to itself and its owner.
I would like to think, from ring side, that it was obvious that I was looking for Borders with a pattern of moderation and workmanlike construction, with sound, free, scopey movement, who also had quality and style. It wasn’t always easy, in some classes, but I thought my final line ups, in both sexes, demonstrated my priorities.
On the whole, coats and pelts were good, as always my opinion being that coats are transient. I don’t expect them to be aimed specifically, time wise, for me, as I am more concerned with correct construction, but it is “the icing on the cake.” As long as there was evidence of the correct textures, no one was unduly marked down, until it came to the top honours.
Most were spannable, although very few were easily spannable, slightly worrying, as my hands have a big span! This isn’t just a UK problem!
Mouths were all acceptable, a few with the odd broken tooth, which is only to be expected in a working Terrier and certainly wouldn’t be penalised by me.

1st - Howthwaite Dreams (Mr R J & Mrs E A Barrett)

Grizzle and Tan. Just over 8 months. Tall, narrow youngster, who must not grow on. Typical head and expression. Super neck, shoulder, front and feet. Good top line and tail set. Good in rib and hindquarters. Very sound mover, presented in excellent coat on a good pelt. BPD. In the challenge for Best Puppy, just preferred the more elegant lines of his litter sister.

2nd - Baywillow Blueprint (Mrs G Hyslop & Mrs M Reeves)

Blue and Tan. Just over 6 ½ months. Typical head and expression. Good in neck and shoulder. Not quite the narrow front of 1st. Good top line and tail set. Hindquarters ok. Sound enough on the move.

3rd - Chatmoss Porthos (Mr & Mrs D J & P M Lockley)

Grizzle and Tan. Just over 8 months, but the real baby of the class. Good head and expression. Good neck and shoulder. Straight front and good feet. Excellent top line and tail set. Good hindquarters and hind movement, just needing to tighten in front, which I’m sure will come in time.

1st - Stowthorney Mr Tickle (Mr R Brewster & Ms J Green)

Grizzle and Tan. 9 ½ months. Excellent head and expression. Good neck, shoulder, front and feet, top line and tail set and hindquarters. Short of coat, but evidence of harshness, this just telling against him in the challenge for BPD. Thought him the best mover in the class, holding his outline on the move. Like the MP, hope he doesn’t grow on.

2nd - Alcumlow Parsley (Mr P, Mrs B & Miss R Barber)

Grizzle and tan. Just over 10 months. Typical head and expression. Good neck, shoulder, front and feet. Excellent coat and pelt. Lovely, narrow, bodylines. Good hindquarters. Sound on the move, but just losing his top line, at times. Just needs time.

3rd - Onthill Aramis (Mr R & Mrs A Ramus)

Blue and Tan. 11 ½ months. Typical head and expression. Good in neck and shoulder, but not quite the narrow front of the first two, due to a shorter upper arm. Good top line and hindquarters. Moved out well behind, but just a shade wide in front.

Not a good class for movement!

1st - Tythrop Trademarqued (Mrs J Lee)

Quite a light coloured Grizzle and Tan. Just short of 14 months. Beautiful, otter head and expression. Excellent neck, shoulder, front and feet. Good rib, carried back and easily spanned. Good hindquarters. Presented in excellent order, with a super coat and pelt. Very good in front movement. Still just needs to strengthen a little behind, on the move, but stood away here. Has an air of class about him, reminded me of some of the early Foxwyn dogs.

2nd - Keebank Charlie's Diamond (Mrs L Keeffe)

Grizzle and Tan. Just short of 16 months. Typical head and expression. Nice type of dog, with similar bodylines to 1st and most of the comments apply. Not so good in forehand, due to a shorter upper arm, giving a wider front and a shorter stride in profile movement. Good coat and pelt.

3rd - Raleniro Second Time Around (Mr M J & Mrs D A Lorraine & Miss P Thomas)

Grizzle and Tan. 17 months. Head and expression ok. Not the layback of shoulder of the first two, combined with a short upper arm, affecting his front movement. Good hindquarters, which he used well on the move. Presented in good order.

1st - Crazy Train Pilgrim to Chatmoss JW ShCM (Mr & Mrs D J & P M Lockley)

Grizzle and Tan. Just over 18 months. Super head and expression. Excellent neck, shoulder, front and feet. Good rib, carried well back. Easily spanned. Excellent top line and tail set. Good tail, well carried. Exceptionally good coat and pelt. Lovely, narrow bodylines. Beautifully presented and in excellent condition. Yes, he could perhaps have a shade more angulation to his hindquarters, but they are “racy” and he used them to full advantage, powering around the ring, freely and accurately, keeping his outline, not bothered by the longish grass. Delighted to award him his first CC. Sired by my Crufts BOB, ex my Crufts Best Puppy! Heard, afterwards, his litter sister went BIS at the Swedish Arets, today, as well! Congratulations!

2nd - Ploughdown Plato (Mr E & Dr M Armstrong)

Blue and Tan. 17 months. Much larger stamp of dog than 1st. Head and expression ok. Not the super, narrow front of 1st. Good top line and tail set. Good hindquarters. Good coat and pelt. Well presented. Moves ok behind, but just came towards me a shade wide.

3rd - Breckgreen Soldier Blue (Mrs. J. Green)

Blue and Tan. Just over 20 months. Typical head and expression. Similar remarks as the 2nd. Just not as easy to span. Super coat and pelt. Another who moved better behind than in front.

Grizzle and Tan. Real baby here, being just over 12 months, only emphasised by being short of coat. Typical head and expression. Excellent neck, shoulder, front and feet, top line and tail set. Easily spanned. Good hindquarters. Still a shade puppyish in movement. Just needs time to grow up a little.

1st - Smalesmouth Skylark (Mrs J Roberts)

Light Grizzle and Tan. Rising 2 year old. Excellent, feminine, otter head and expression. Super neck, shoulder, front and feet. Excellent rib, easily spanned. Good topline and tail set. Excellent hindquarters. Very stylish, free, accurate mover. She fair powered round the ring, holding her outline, on the move. Has a touch of class about her. Stood away in this class. Not easily discounted, in the challenge, she was in my final four for consideration.

2nd - Foxfactor Lavender Blue (Mrs K Stockley)

Blue and Tan. Just over 21 months. Typical head and expression. Good neck, but not quite the shoulder and upper arm of the 1st. Good top line and tail set. In good coat. Sound enough on the move.

3rd - Annesuz Incognito (Mrs S Marwood)

Grizzle and Tan. 19 months. Typical head and expression. Good neck and shoulder, front and feet, top line and tail set. Excellent hindquarters. Exceptionally good coat and pelt. Just disappointed on the move, as she was a shade lethargic, moving well behind, but throwing her front a little.

Superb top line and tail set. Super tail. Excellent hindquarters. Superb coat and pelt. Beautifully presented. Real showgirl, she kept her outline, on the move.

1st - Baywillow Brown Braid JW (Mrs G Hyslop)

Grizzle and Tan. Gave her a 1st when I judged at Crufts. Excellent head and expression. Super neck, shoulder, front and feet. Good top line and tail set. Super tail. Easily spanned. Good hindquarters. Super coat and pelt presented in pristine order. Sound, free mover.

2nd - Smalesmouth Maylady (Mrs J Roberts)

Blue and Tan. Another class winner from Crufts ’12 and dam of 1st in YB and 2nd in MLB, she shares the same sire as the 1st. She has certainly passed on her qualities and wonderfully sound, free movement. Very like her Blue daughter, the same comments apply.

3rd - Mcbrock Miss Amelia (Mr & Mrs J R Mann)

Excellent top line and tail set. Good hindquarters. Super coat and pelt. Moved very well behind, just not quite the reach of 1st and 2nd, in profile.

Grizzle and tan. Another who won her class at Crufts, under me. Just over 7. Superb head and expression. Excellent neck, shoulder, front and feet. Good hindquarters. Super coat and pelt. A shade longer cast than 1st, she moved freely, but didn’t hold her top line quite so well on the move.
