"A very promising younster,short-coupled,strong
quarters,beautiful head, neck and shoulders. Topline good and moved with
drive. Must have a bright future" (J.Brabban,Cambremer,UK, LRC of
"Won this class on conformation and mouvement.
Moved so soundly,showing all her attributes. Lovely compact bitch with
clean outline and correct angulation, gentlest of heads, deep in body and
correct in every way" (Linda Major , UK, Mid-Jersey 2000)
Best of Breed winner had a head
with correct parallel planes, intelligent and willing expression, with
dark eyes and great eyebrows, a deep and wide muzzel for carrying, but
also wide clear nostrils for scenting. Her
ears were correctly placed with desirable length and held with
expectation the whole class, framing her wonderfully feminine head.
Her strong neck of medium length flowed gently into her shoulders,
which again were properly placed with no hint of being straight.
This line continued with no evidence of weakness through her
backline to tailset.The rib cage spread from the back bone with plenty
of room for bouancy without being too wide and allowing for proper
length of loin. She has
the hallmark "Otter Tail" that we all look for immediately in
the whelping box, and seems not so easy to find, with all the feathering
and long coats that are about in these times.
Her upperarm complements her length of shoulder blade, which
match her angles and length of angle in the rear.
She has wide, strong thighs with plenty of second thigh and
strong let down hocks. Her
bone is round and strong with slightly bent pasterns followed by nicely
shaped sound feet. Her
underline matches her topline. All
these things together give her balance while moving very strongly with
confidence and evidence of Labrador temperment.
While standing still one can easily see how her coat wraps around
her body for the protection she would need while in water and how its
clothes her all around with a nice fit.
On touching her coat, the texture has enough coarseness to know
that she is well protected and that her double coat is obvious.
Standing still she is very desirable, but when she moved she was
second to none on that day. (Marion Lyons,
