Judges report of
The Romany Trophy Competition - 3rd November, 2012
I would start by congratulating The Coloured Bull Terrier Club on it’s 75th anniversary and thanking the committee and exhibitors for the warm friendly welcome Pam and I received at the show.
After going over the Trophy Competitors we moved the dogs first and compared our preferences, we did the same with the bitches and it was nice that we were in unison with our final decisions.
Our winner of the Romany Trophy was Mcdermids Padhen Hitman
Compact and well maid Black Brindle, he is well balanced and typey, head has good fill and profile with well placed eye and ears giving good expression, correct mouth, nice length of neck into well set shoulder, straight front, good feet short back. Moved parallel, would like to see him stride out and drive a bit more.
Our runner up was Sewards Padhen The Puzzler
Dark Brindle, again he is well balanced, well made and typey, slightly thicker set than the winner. He has a turned and filled head with good eye and well set ears, alas his mouth is incorrect. Good length of neck into a well set shoulder, short back, good bend of stifle, moved with drive.
Our best opposite Sex Was Fletcher’s Champion Napier Rosella
Good size quality girl, she has a feminine head with just the right amount of fill and profile, well placed eye and good ear carriage, long neck into correct shoulder, straight front, good depth of chest and rib, moved parallel with drive when settled.
