VHC Ayita Independence Day
I would like to thank the HWVA for their invitation to judge the open show and also thank the exhibitors for the sporting way in which they accepted my placings. I really enjoyed my day and with my competent steward, Colin, it was an excellent day.
On a general basis the breed does seem to be getting more even in breed type although there is still a lot of variance within size and coat. One area that breeders need to watch is front angulation. Layback of shoulder seems to be very good but there are a few who have very short and straight upperarms, which does have an affect on the day the dog’s moves. As far as movement was concerned the hind action, on the whole, was much better than the front actions with a few flipping pasterns and a couple who were really pounding on the front. On the whole hind angualtion was good but a couple were short in second thigh which then meant the point of hock lacked correct angulation resulting in correct hock to ground. Coats were pretty good considering the time of year – most have a good wirey texture and sufficient depth of coat.
From my two quality line-up’s I gave BIS to Parry’s LEIBORSCHY YENDAH ShCM. I’ve liked this bitch before and haven’t changed my mind. She has a lovely balanced head with the darkest of eyes giving a kind expression, good boned limbs and tight feet, lengthy neck into the best front angulation on the day, well sprung ribs reaching back, strong loins, good topline and croup, well angulated behind, good coat texture with depth of coat, moved very soundly and on a long profile stride.
RBIS was Smilie & Cairn’s FARNFIELD PUSSY GALORE OF GALICAR well upto size, strong bitch but very balanced. Long head with a lovely expression, strong muzzle, well boned limbs and tight feet, strong neck of good length, well placed shoulders, good depth and spring of ribs reaching well back, not quite so strong in topline as BIS, well angulated behind, in lovely coat and moved well.
BOS was Guest’s BARTONTOP ROCHESTER coming from the F/T class. A dog I have seen in F/T’s showing he is a true dual purpose dog. Strong, well grown dog but once again very balanced. Lovely head with the darkest of eyes giving a very kind expression, strong muzzle, excellent boned limbs, good pasterns and tight feet, strong neck into clean shoulders, deep ribs reaching well back, very good hindquarters, a little steep in croup, excellent coat, moved well.
BPIS was a son of my BIS winner in Stockwell’s LEIBORSCHY YLAI. Well grown youngster but correct size for his age, balanced heard, good eye colour, strong muzzle, strong lengthy neck, adequate boned limbs, good angulation behind, moved well and in good coat – very promising.

1st BARTONTOP ROCHESTER Critique above
1st Parry – showing a very uniformed group of dogs with regards to type, shape, size and coat – well done.
1st Walkers – very well mannered pair who seemed to know exactly what was expected of them moving virtually stride for stride.
