Grouse Pointing Test – Judges; Mr John Naylor & Mr Nigel Dear

The Barningham Estate, North Yorkshire

Gonegos Spanish Caravan - HWV - Bitch - Junior - Alan McDowall - Very Good

Travaillant Beersheba - HWV - Bitch - Glenn Richardson - Good

Kenmillix Eilethyia - HWV - Bitch - Phil Robinson - Good

Misty Kara of Traviallant - HWV - Bitch - Roy Bebbington - Good

Gonegos Kozen - HWV - Dog - Phil Robinson - Good


Strong, very cold wind predominantly out of the North, occasional rain and snow showers throughout the day. The quite extreme weather made any kind of work a difficult business and it is a credit to all the participating dogs that they were able to demonstrate good work, some outstanding. As usual, there were a number of talented dogs whose luck on the day was not with them. We were delighted to be able to grade the following:

Gonegos Spanish Caravan handled by Alan McDowall - Junior HWV Bitch

Fast paced, enthusiastic style impressed from the start coming quickly onto point and flushing a single grouse. Indicated and drew onto 2 further birds which flushed before the dog was able to firm up its point. Graded: Very Good

Travaillant Beersheba handled by Glenn Richardson - Adult HWV Bitch

Good ground treatment with medium pace with occasional back cast. Came onto point which proved unproductive. Working on indicated and drew onto a single grouse, dog steady. Graded: Good.

Kenmillix Eilethyia handled by Phil Robinson -Adult HWV Bitch

This dog's first run showed somewhat erratic ground treatment with occasional bursts of enthusiasm. Its second run was with much more drive, almost a different dog. Indicated and drew forward with careful purpose to firm up its point, producing a single grouse. Graded: Good

Misty Kara of Travaillant handled by Roy Bebbington - Adult HWV Bitch

Coming onto point very early into its run a single grouse was produced. Working on, the dog exhibited an interrupted pattern, seemingly often distracted by scent we would have preferred to see it running more freely. Graded: Good

Gonegos Kozen handled by Phil Robinson - HWV Dog

Quickly onto scent, it drew forward sight pointing a walking grouse, but drawn also onto a second bird which flushed. Dog steady. Working on, the dog was almost immediately drawn onto a third bird which it pointed. As we hadn't been able to see the dog run, its beat was changed where it showed pace and good ground treatment. Graded: Good.

I would like to thank the HWV Club of GB for inviting me to judge and Mr Roy Burrows, the keeper, for looking after us so well. Nigel Dear

Spring Pointing Test – Judges; Mr Keith Scattergood & Mrs Liza Brown

There was an abundance of game as usual which meant that all the dogs each had game on their run. The scenting conditions were testing due to the lack of rain and warm temperatures on the day. However the judges graded 5 dogs on the day (out of a total entry of 18)

Graded "Very Good" were Jean Robertson with Greenwire Lenci HV - junior.

Penny Easy with Boss Fino HV - adult

Graded "Good" were Steve Watson with Hapseve Dazzler HV - adult,
