This was a most enjoyable appointment, efficient stewards and ideal weather. Virtually all exhibits were very well presented and I was impressed with the overall quality. The only real concern I have is the shortage of puppies that are coming into the showring at the moment, hopefully this is just a blip, but if not, it does not bode well for the future. I did not find any incorrect mouths and movement was generally pretty good.

Just a week short of 12 months, not quite sure what to make of him at this stage, hopefully time will benefit his development. A little strong over skull for me. Good rib, with depth of chest and strong across loins. Nice bone and feet. Moved true and steady.

Very promising and liked him a lot. Well balanced outline, showing nice arc of neck and good lay of shoulders. Good rib with depth, elbows neatly situated into body. Shows very good angulation both fore and aft with ample bone and tight feet. Lovely male head, with width and dept of muzzle. Moves ok, just needs time to mature.
2nd: 5601 BULLOCK Mr J E Trixhund Talking Obsession
Lively young man. Has not got the width and depth of muzzle I like to see, otherwise he is of sound construction with good body and adequate bone. Needs to settle when moving.

1st: 5616 ELLIOTT Mr J W & Mrs B O Peasblossom Nemesis with Jonabar
Has a balanced outline. Good depth through the rib, however, the excessive length of coat on the forechest gives the opposite impression. Very pleasing masculine head with nice chiselling and good muzzle. Neat shoulder construction and nice hind angulation. Needs time to mature. Moves sound and steady.

Still a tender 22 months, but has a mature presence and oozes quality throughout. Lovely size and so well balanced. Classic springer head showing correct fluting, chiselling and proportions. Pleasing almond eye shape. Lovely reach of neck flowing into superb shoulders which in turn are set into a body with plenty of depth and well sprung ribs. Good forechest and neatly set elbows. Hindquarters are powerful, well angulated and sit on neat hocks. Great for bone with lovely tight feet, true and sound on the move. CC & BOB.
2nd: 5632 MITCHELL Mr & Mrs D & J Sh Ch Peasblossom Jester
LWT. I had the pleasure of judging him at my previous appointment and he has matured into a grand dog of lovely size and proportions, presented to perfection. Excellent construction throughout, elegant neck flowing into good shoulders, strong in body and loin. Very good bone and feet. He has a very kind expression, I just preferred the head profile of the winner. Moved soundly with plenty of drive. RCC.

Has decent spring of rib with depth. Solid topline and tailset. Liked the width and depth of muzzle, but just a little strong across her skull. Moved steady and true

I just loved her traditional Springer type with conformation that ticked all the boxes. Classic springer head, well proportioned, well chiselled and with fluting between the eyes. Nice broad muzzle with deep flews. Flows through neck into correct shoulders and firm topline. Plenty of forechest with depth, well sprung rib cage and good loin. Hindquarters are well angulated with neat hocks. Certainly one of the best movers on the day, sound, steady and stylish. CC.
2nd: 5633 MITCHELL Mr & Mrs D & J Sh Ch Peasblossom Moonstruck
Pleasure to go over. Beautiful head with dark eye and melting expression that often comes on a very good black and white. Would like a little less reach of neck, to be picky. However, this is a lovely bitch from head to tail. She possesses good forechest, excellent shoulders, well developed body and loin, has depth of chest, neat elbow placement, lovely bone and feet. RCC
