Irish Setter Puppy (4)
1. Hughes Gwendariff Ur Going Places. Stood out as my winner, with classic outline nicely off for bone, a well balanced pup of 10½ months, with lovely expression, good head planes, lovely chiseling under well-shaped dark eye, raised brow, ears set on low, lying close, well defined occipital bone, clean neck with correct front assembly, and gentle slope to topline, good tail set and well-angled hindquarters. It was a pleasure to watch him move round the the ample sized ring with plenty of reach & drive. Well handled to BP & Puppy Group
2. Sturrocks Forfarian Bang Tidy. Bang Tidy indeed. Striking young baby, good type & balanced all through.
