Please find listed below my critique for The East Anglian Old English Sheepdog Club Open Show held on Sunday 25th January 2015 at The Burgess Civic Centre, St Ives, Cambridgeshire.
Thanks to the East Anglian OES Club inviting me to judge their Open Show, I send my best wishes to the appointed judge: Joachim Pilz who withdrew before entries closed due to ill health. I wish him a speedy recovery.
It was lovely to be back once again with my beloved Old English Sheepdogs.
We had a large ring inside and fully carpeted I found movement has improved once again with the lovely drive required in the breed standard today. It was difficult once again to find the gentle rising top line in the males but when I got to the bitches it was there! Coats were good and some very harsh coats in some cases and all correct. Still a few problems with mouths and not too many large heads these days. Once again I was very impressed with the temperaments of all the exhibits, they were FIRST CLASS absolutely A1, which we expect from our most faithful friends/companions and my first consideration of this breed when judging.

Veteran Dog or Bitch 4
1st Birdsall’s BEAUVALLON VANITY FAIR AT PALAMINE
Upstanding lovely bitch! Almost 9 years old and moving very well. She looked a picture and was well in contention for Reserve Best Bitch. Lovely condition well looked after coat. Showing no signs of her age. A pleasure to go over and judge. I loved her and her sweet happy expression.
2nd Robertson’s CHAZMATCH BLUE BOY WONDER AT HICKORYSTIX
Unlucky to meet my winner. 8 years old in very good condition and coat. Smaller dog, very well-muscled for age moved well.

Wow! An old fashioned “Bobtail”. Lovely looking dog. Good head proportions, One dark ear, nice eyes. Wonderful reach of neck flowing into well angulated
Shoulder placement. Very compact body. Nice angulated stifles and neat hocks. Very well coated body of correct texture. Moved extremely well around the ring.

Junior Bitch 2
1st Adock & Reed’s CHARMLEA DELIGHTFUL AT KRISENDAW
And what a delight this girl is! Just 17 months, smaller bitch with such a sweet expression. Standing beautifully upright with head and nose in the air. So nice to see this as it has been lost in exhibiting nowadays. Lovely wall eye, head in proportion to size. Good reach of neck, square body and good turn of stifle with well let down hocks. Coat still needs time. Movement was good she paced at times but this was corrected. Not a fault but true “Bobtail” movement. Litter sister to my Junior dog winner. What a wonderful litter, the breeder must be very proud.
RESERVE BEST BITCH. In the challenge the Limit bitch had the edge and this was solely on maturity.
2nd Goddard’s KINDAMAGIC DREAM CHASER
Another upstanding bitch. Good head and neck. Square body shape, neat hocks. Moved well. Needs more time coat wise as lots of brown coat showing today. It could have been the spotlights highlighting the colour. A very nice bitch.
Post Graduate Bitch 3
1st Wheeler’s ZOTTELS BETTE MIDLER
Lovely yearling bitch in light grey coat. Nice head, good neck, compact body. Good depth of brisket. Well angulated rear, neat hocks. Moved well. Handler did well as new to showing.

Limit Bitch 5 (1abs)
1st Reynold’s CILLASTYLE CEECEE COOKIE
An old fashioned girl and so sound. Lovely head and neck, good body with nice depth of brisket. Lots of coat, still changing but crisp in texture. Good rising topline. Moved very well indeed, she could have worked all day. Well-muscled rear end. This girl gets lots of exercise. She also has personality plus and I love naughty girls! BEST BITCH AND RESERVE BEST IN SHOW.
2nd Barton’s AMBLESEA TRAILING ROSE AT AMBLEHAY
Smaller bitch, stunning to look at in show stance. Nice head, neck and coat. Short in back with well angulated rear with neat hocks. Coat of good colour and texture. Moved out well but tended to throw her left hock out at times. A lovely bitch.

Extremely nice quality bitch.
Open Bitch 4 (2 abs).

2nd Hodgson’s JEDDEP KATWALK KIKKI AT RAGGLEBARN
Another nice bitch. Good head in proportion to body with lovely expression. Nice neck. Square body with good depth of brisket. Good rising topline. Excellent coat. Moved well, even better on her own without her handler!
