** Best in Class in Show

 

BABY PUPPY DOG:

1st S&R Roberts' RHOKAY RIDE THE LIGHTNING 
Love this baby on the move - such energy and spirit, very straightforward, excellent front, my favourite of the class and that's really what gave him the class, level topline, ridge could be a little longer but otherwise shape and symmetry is excellent, ear set is a little low but planes are good and showed lovely expression; front and rear angles well balaniced.

2nd Ms P Batten's LIONSLEA TITANIUM (AI) 
Quite similar to first place in style with a little more prosternum but a little less fill; the head has excellent proportions and good planes; lay of neck into shoulder excellent; well balanced angulation front to rear and good balance; very quick on the move with good reach and drive.

3rd Inzara Knl's INZARA AND IT GOES LIKE THIS 
Different style of puppy to the first two places; a little less together on the move than the first two placements; very good lay of neck into shoulder with a well arched neck; needs a little bit more angle to balance off his rear and stands a little posted forward; head planes not quite as nice as the first two however lovely expression.

4th G Jane's KIPSIGIS TK MWANGI 
Well pigmented handsome liver with classic head of correct planes and proportions; correct angulation front and rear but somewhat short in body; excellent ribbing but somewhat soft in topline which will improve with age and conditioning I'm sure; good prosternum; good depth of chest; ear set a little low; neck of good length and shape.

 

MINOR PUPPY DOG:

1st N Patterson's SKISKA KEEPER OF TIME - Minor in Show 
Very attractive puppy nicely balanced front to rear angles; lovely planes on his head and a very masculine strong head that I particularly enjoy; the depth of chest is good; could do with a little less width between vertebrae at the wither; moves extremely well with good reach and drive; symmetry very appealing; would like to see a bit more of the black in the head go but I think that will over time.

2nd Kushika Knl's KUSHIKA HOLE IN ONE 
Honestly a really hard decision between these two pups; slightly different style - lighter framed then the first place getter and although he's got lovely ribbing at the moment I think he's got a lot of growing to do to grow into his feet and at the moment his topline is a bit soft; as a minor puppy one can expect that and he should grow into the excellent length of neck that at the moment is probably a little bit out of proportion to the rest of his body until it catches up a bit otherwise very nice puppy with excellent angles well balanced front to rear.

 

PUPPY DOG: I actually found this class very difficult three quite different dogs in terms of both style and movement.

1st J Hall's JARRACADA ICARUS 
Good front with excellent fill could do with a little more prosternum, basically won on his front; he's got a good angle and a good balance without being extreme'; good topline nice and solid on the move and could do with a bit more ribbing but adequate; head has good planes and also a good depth of chest.

2nd Ms P Batten's LIONSLEA HEART OF OAK 
Lighter framed than number 1 and number 3 but his movement was better than number 3 just a bit gay in tail for me needs to really get that tail down a bit and he needs a bit more fill in the front certainly has a lovely neck and lay of shoulder just needs to get those muscles built up in the back he currently as a puppy is a little bit off the parallel in the head and a little bit low in earset.

3rd Ms P Edgar's MACUMAZAHN HIGH VOLTAGE 
Lovely big strong dog; great bone for me; topline is dropping at the rear on the move; excellent rear angulation just needs a little bit more in the front to balance off; good depth of chest; head is strong with good planes; a little upright in shoulder giving the wrinkled appearance as the neck meets the shoulder.

 

JUNIOR DOG:

1st Ms P Bartolozzi & Mr D Stebbing's BARTESS DREAM CHASER 
Very promising young dog; head and neck very clean; excellent earset; good arch of neck and lay to shoulder; topline strong and level on the move; moves with good reach and drive; drops a little too much over the croup but ribbing is well shaped and correctly positioned; could do with a touch more angle front and rear and a little more chest depth that will hopefully come with maturity; but overall well balanced with a pleasing outline.

 

INTERMEDIATE DOG:

1st Ms M Miles' KIMBISHA MAKING MAGIC 
He took the class on movement moves extremely well he has a good front just needs a little more angle in the rear but he does take advantage of what he's got on the move and has both reach and drive; head a little dishy I really would prefer a little more depth of muzzle just to balance him off as he's lost that wedge look; overall everything's put together well; his neck's probably for me one of his strongest features it's a really well placed with good length good arch and nice placement into the shoulder; earset could be a little higher very nice dog easily best moving dog of the class.

2nd M Howell's OTESHA OVU DAMU 
On the stack would have been my easy pick just didn't want to the play the game moving; strong front maybe a touch frontloaded but excellent fill and great depth that we're not seeing a lot of in the breed these days; level topline; length to height proportions is extremely good and I think he has the ability to move a lot better than he did today just decided he wasn't going to. Lovely head planes good earset could do with a little more depth in muzzle; a little thick in neck rear angulation is good a little soft in pastern but overall a very nice young dog.

3rd Ms S Hutcheson & Mr S Mason's KIPSIGIS KZ KAZI 
The proportions are quite good length to height but lacks a bit in ribbing and on the move it throws his front end a bit; a little throaty though not egregiously so; a little light in eye however he does have probably the best proportioned head of the three and a very good earset and great expression when he wants to give it to you; the balance of angle is quite good not really keen on showing himself off; good narrow width of vertebrae at the wither.

 

AUSTRALIAN BRED DOG:

1st Ms P Edgar's CH MACUMAZAHN LORDLESS SAMURAI (AI) - Reserve Challenge Dog 
Lovely sound moderate dog would like a little more angle in the front to balance out but very nicely put together and moves extremely well with lots of reach and drive; holds topline well on the move; excellent neck with very good arch flowing smoothly into this shoulder; very classic head great length of muzzle; excellent earset and lovely tight feet.

2nd G Jane's CH KIPSIGIS TANGAA 
Again an extremely good mover; a strong moderate dog with excellent depth of chest; neck a little thick for his proportions and not quite as nicely arched as number one; head has excellent planes although I'd like his eye a little darker. Overall a very appealing dog I'd be happy to take home with me.

3rd R & S Katf's CH LIONSLEA MASTER AND COMMANDER 
Very active on the move; great reach not always matching drive but very good covers a lot of ground and covers quite a bit of ground standing as well; good proportions; the tailset is good a lovely strong insertion into the root; the lay of shoulder not quite as good as the first two dogs and a little flewy but otherwise good planes in the head and lovely pigment for a brown nose and very well shaped feet with good arch,

3rd Ms P Bartolozzi & Mr D Stebbing's KUSHIKA SECRET INTENTION 
Slightly taller dog than the first three and beautifully balanced dog lovely symmetry love his head profile with parallel planes and great length of muzzle; would like to see a little more depth in the muzzle; lovely earset lovely expression lovely neck; beautifully put together and moves extremely well covering good ground just toeing in a little bit today and I'd also like to see a bit more ribbing for his length.

3rd Miss K Young's CH SAHWIRA BAKARI 
Again moderate dog with good depth of chest just hitting the elbow; a very balanced dog and his movement is very correct, didn't seem to all that thrilled to be moving today though; head proportion would benefit from a little more length in muzzle; expression was good earset was good again needs a little less on the neck to balance the proportion of the rest of his body but otherwise a good sound all round moderate dog.

 

OPEN DOG:

1st Ms K Tapody's KAPAMA RUN ZAMBA RUN - Challenge Dog 
This dog very much in my style with a lovely outline and a good balance of strength and elegance; he does need a little more length of body and that shows somewhat on the move on initial runs he was moved far too quickly and overreached, luckily for a few moments he hit the correct pace heading back to the line and it could be seen how well he could travel and cover ground at a pace that suits him better; excellent head with parallel planes and good proportions; excellent earset and good expression.

2nd Ms M Miles' CH USAKOSE HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN 
Slightly heavier dog with excellent angles and front to rear balance; neck is a little heavy and doesn't flow quite as nicely into the shoulders as number one; head planes are good and earset correct but a bit flewy for me and would like a little more depth in muzzle; good reach and drive on the move and good chest fill.

3rd S & K Allan's GR CH MIERIDGE GATSBYS APLAWZ (AI) 
Beautiful moving dog just a little bit overreaching with his front today a bit too enthusiastic I think but when he settles he commands the ring; needs more fill in the chest and a little more depth but front to rear angulation is excellent; good head with appealing expression; excellent long muscle; cuts a very attractive outline.

Challenge Dog: Kapama Run Zamba Run (New Champion)

Res. Challenge: Ch Macumuzahn Lordless Samurai (AI)

 

BABY PUPPY BITCH:

1st L Cassar / R Lamb's SHAKURU HURT SO GOOD - Baby in Show 
Lovely puppy of correct proportion; great length of body; very attractive head lovely expression good earset good tailset; excellent front extension and rear drive on the move; nice prosternum well balanced front against rear angulation I'd like a little better lay of neck into shoulder but otherwise very attractive puppy

2nd J Hall's JARRACADA JEMIMAH 
She's a lovely together little puppy a little quieter on the move than number 1 but similarly shows good front and rear extension; a little shorter in body but proportion still very good; topline level and good length of ribbing; lovely ridge; would prefer a little more bone and depth of chest at this age.

3rd S & R Robert's RHOKAY CARPE DIEM BABY 
Sweet puppy with appealing head and expression; a little low in earset; standing well over ground and moves with good drive and coverage; beautiful round dark eye; prosternum is good but would like a little more elegance in the neck; a pup with plenty of potential to do well.

4th Ms P Batten's LIONSLEA FOR YOUR EYES ONLY 
Presents well with good bone and strong front; excellent depth of chest and length of body although would like ribbing a little longer for the length; head strong with good planes and good pigment; a touch throaty but elegant arch of neck and shoulder to elbow line is ideal.

5th Inzara Knl's INZARA LETS GET LOUD 
Striking neck - long and elegant flowing well into the shoulder; good depth of chest but needs a little more fill; well shaped head with excellent depth of muzzle and well set ear; topline while held well on the move tends to slope on the stack; found this girls balance just a little off with the front definitely better than the rear.

 

MINOR PUPPY BITCH:

1st Kushika Knl's SNO WAY TO BEHAVE 
Delightful puppy that I would happily take home with me; maybe a touch long in body but with good ribbing -slightly soft in topline on the stack but holds well on the move; good front and rear extension; lovely head and expression with good earset; elegant neck with good arch and flow into shoulder; well angled front to rear with excellent boning.

2nd Ingwe Knl's MIKOZI MAKE MY DAY 
Lovely head with good depth, parallel planes and width to lengths proportions; neck has good length; could do with a little more angle front and rear and this shows on the move with reduced reach; slightly high in the rear at the moment; second thigh very strong with correct muscling; tailset correct and held well on the move.

3rd Miss C Newhouse's OTESHA SAVANNA 
Love the ear set, size and shape but would like more strength and depth in muzzle; elegant body just a little lacking in bone for my taste; a little high on hock but well balanced pup with good depth of chest placing well to the elbow; ribbing adequate for length; good width of thigh though I would like to see this girl in a year or so when she has built on some muscle definition and condition.

 

PUPPY BITCH:

1st Ingwe Knl's INGWE FINAL COUNTDOWN - Puppy in Show 
Covers ground well on the move; beautifully proportioned balanced off with long neck with elegant arch; very attractive planes to her head and correct length of muzzle; tiny bit flewy; good prosternum and very good depth of chest; smooth lay of neck into shoulder; good ribbing would like a little more but she does the job well and truly.

2nd Miss M Howell's MAZOURI COCO 
Lovely movement in fact there was really nothing to choose between the movement with these three all quite correct and true no one very enthusiastic but all correct and true; head planes just a little bit of off but lovely dark eye good expression and a beautiful chin; excellent depth of muzzle; good front with well sized prosternum; stands well over ground; good tailset; overall a lovely puppy.

3rd J Hall's JARRACADA IMOGEN 
Little taller than the first two placings and could use a bit more ribbing to balance off her body strong low placed hock; brown nose with excellent pigment and correct eye colour; earset correct setting off an attractive head flowing smoothly into a well set neck with good arch.

Honestly not much between 1 2 and 3, 3 just loses her topline a little on the move.

 

JUNIOR BITCH: 
1st Ms P Bartolozzi & Mr D Stebbing's BARTESS RANGA TANGAA - Junior in Show 
Classic head with excellent length of muzzle well proportioned to width; neck elegant with good arch; loved the strength and bone of this bitch but would like a little deeper in chest and a touch more fill; excellent low hock which delivered correct, true movement; wonderfully balanced on the move; cuts an attractive outline with good length of ribbing and correct underline.

2nd G Jane's HUNTINGRIDGE TRIBAL HEART 
Preferred the pigment on this liver bitch with richer nose pigment and correct eye; neck is a little short for her body proportions and needs a little more depth of chest; also a little more rear angle to balance her front; topline and ridge very good; tailset could be a little higher but good length carried well on the move; good boning; a moderately angled correctly moving bitch.

 

INTERMEDIATE BITCH:

1st Ms L Barrenger's CH ISILWANE KEEPER OF THE FLAME - Intermediate in Show 
Brown nose with excellent pigment; this bitch really has lovely symmetry; strong true movement; neck has elegant arch; great planes on the head; well set shoulder and rear angulation; I would prefer a little more depth of chest and slightly longer ribbing but overall her proportions work very well to present a very typey Ridgeback.

2nd Etosha Knl's ETOSHA ADELLA 
This girl very clean throughout; well arched and shaped neck; good head planes; good underjaw; would like a rounder darker eye; but generally speaking this is a bitch I would love to have in my backyard; very true and covers ground well on the move; could do with a little more depth of chest but lovely rear angle and nicely balanced bitch.

3rd Kushika Knl's CH KUSHIKA TENYERE TEMPEST 
Again a lovely moving bitch very true; and generally speaking very appealing in the head; my biggest complaint is that she needs more angle in the front as she doesn't balance off to the excellent rear angle as well as I'd like; very elegant with sweet expression; elegant yet strong moderate bitch.

4th J Halls JARRACADA HERMIONE 
Very attractive bitch on the stack and certainly covers the ground correctly and truly on the move; good angles front to back although just a touch steep in croup, which spoils her topline a wee bit; head is good planes are reasonable earset is good and very nice strong front; and strong oval bone.

5th Ms P Edgar's MACUMAZAHN HELLAVA RIDE (AI) 
Yet another great moving bitch who covers the ground with conviction; excellent muzzle length but needs more depth against the length; slightly off balance in terms of angles front to rear but I love this girl throughout; strong level topline at stack and on the move; would like the shoulder to be set a bit further back and that would improve a wee bit the neck going into the shoulder again we're getting that wrinkle over that point as the shoulder blade is just a slightly forward of true.

 

AUSTRALIAN BRED BITCH:

1st A Edwards & D Stratton's CH KUSHIKA SECRET BID - Best in Show 
This bitch cuts a striking elegant yet strong silhouette; beautifully balanced angles and she covers ground effortlessly on the move; would prefer a better lay into shoulder but prosternum offsets perfectly; head planes are good although I would like a little more width in the muzzle but overall a good strong head with a beautiful dark eye; low hock presenting good rear angle; would like tailset a touch higher overall she makes an extremely pleasing picture.

2nd Ms P Bartolozzi & Mr D Stebbing's DUAL CH (T) KUSHIKA WILD DREAM 
Has lovely neck into shoulder; good head planes and a very appealing expression although I would like a darker eye; great balance again the symmetry and balance very nice in both the first two and again I'd like a little less angle over the croup but on the move both of those girls carry their topline beautifully.

3rd Ms L Barrenger's CH ISILWANE CASABLANCA 
An eight year old and holding up extremely well for that age she's beautifully put together lovely moderate bitch very well balanced front to rear would possibly like just a little more length of body but very nice on the move very confident covers the ground well.

4th P J Batten's CH LIONSLEA BEAUTIFUL DAWN 
Beautiful on the stack although slightly dropping off the dorsal dip the tailset is good the shoulders into upper arm is very good well angled prosternum my only complaint with her today is that she wasn't moving to a tendency to single track she was going very parallel and as speed increased the front started to move to single track the rear did not so although she covers ground beautifully on the move and has a lovely extension just needed to keep the two halves balanced.

 

OPEN BITCH:

1st Ms P Edgar's CH MACUMAZAHN FIRST EDITION - Runner Up in Show 
Lovely strong bitch with excellent long muscle; could do with a bit more arch in neck but overall proportions are excellent with good depth and fill in front; excellent reach and drive on the move with good strong topline; head carriage on the move very correct with no exaggeration; sound well balanced attractive girl with excellent length to width head proportions although earset a little low and I would like a slightly tighter lip.

2nd P J Batten's CH SIXEMM JUSTAGIRLSCOUT (AI) 
Brown nose with good pigment; lovely low hock probably the best of the bunch; lovely front and very correct head and neck; a little rolled over in croup for me and would like to have seen the tailset higher and the shoulder set a little bit further back; overall a very nice typey bitch; lovely moving with strong correct reach and drive.

3rd Kushika Knl's CH KUSHIKA TIRARI SAPPHIRE ET 
Again a effortless mover who gives the appearance that she could go all day and all the next; head very appealing with good planes and attractive expression; ridge good length and symmetry on a strong level topline; front could be a little deeper but angles balance well front to rear; good strong oval bone.

4th V Moritz's CH ISILWANE BIG BADA BOOM 
5 yr old liver girl of good breed type, excellent pigment. Lovely arch in her neck, good front, correct depth of chest and well ribbed back. Slightly soft in the topline on the move but good reach and drive. Strong hind quarters.
