Should I or shouldn't I?

Post  Admin on Wed Jan 19, 2011 9:40 am

I have 4 cream males.....each one has his various reasons for being in my program. I only have 3 dapple females, 2 of which will be retiring after their next litters. I have many new cream females coming up in the future. I have always loved the dapples/cream. I have my cream pie makers and am thinking this black/cream dapple may be a nice asset to add. Would love everyones opinions on him!!!

Good almond eyes
ears seem lever with eyes
Ears length nice
tail set appears correct

seems to have a little stop
hows the bite
check front feet for eastie/westies
rear view needed
front view needed
ribbing seems short...but can't tell without hands on
slight roach...could get worse if back leg is brought to correct placement. Some individuals actually like a roach, some judges do not.
Gosh i want to get my hands on him..if it's Molly from Dude ranch, may be going down there Monday, if you haven't already got him
now we need a video on movement Smile...I know, i ask for to much Smile
seems to be lacking chest, but if head is brought upward, this could be a misguided picture for that area. You want that nose above that topline.

I'm horrible at rears & angulation, going to let someone else tackle that.

Yes Sherry he is at Molly's....we are working out the details for him. I would love another's opinion with hands on, on him! Very Happy She says these pic's don't do him justice and they are a few wks old also. Thank you!! I love you

I'm not sure I'd pay much attention to the roach at this point-he's probably not used to stacking and they sometimes hump up their back when they're not comfortable. If you get candids and his topline looks okay, then that part should be fine. He has amazing bone, lovely markings, a pretty head and nice length of neck. His front feet look a little flat, his rear isn't as nice as I'd like to see (angles aren't quite there, and the second thigh bone is short, which seems to be a common problem) and he looks like hes' going to be a hair high in the rear. As Sherry noted, his ribbing and keel looks short.

As far as should you, or shouldn't you...I'd say only you really know what you do and don't need in your program. If he's got qualities you don't have right now, then it would be worth buying him. If he doesn't, then you probably don't need him. Now needing and wanting are two different things though. Laughing
