Critique

Judge Mrs Irmgard De Haan De Levie (Ruempol)

First of all, I want to thank the Committee of the Show to have chosen me as the Judge of this event.

Second, I appreciated the Sportsmanship of everybody, who accepted my decisions.

 

I was amazed by the quality of the hounds, there were many typical Irish Wolfhounds with a lovely movement, specially from the side, but sometimes also disappointing when they went up and down: toeing in and narrow at the rear, even some which were too wide in front.

 

I also found some with a lighter eye, which spoils the soft expression.

 

Overall the bite was correct (not too narrow underjaws), but I was amazed to find small elements instead of big ones: KILLING A WOLF needs great elements!

The coats of most of the hounds were nice: harsh and crispy.

 

Temperaments were fine, the one or two which were laid-back and still young, I would advise take them with you whenever possible, specially to places with many people.

 

My BOB and BOS were from the same litter and the same owner. I was very impressed by their quality: very muscled, but só light-footed !!! a credit to their owner. When going around, they hardly touched the ground, but flying around the ring. 

 

Thank you for inviting me! I have enjoyed every minute.

 

Irmgard de Haan.
