AV Setter/Pointer Yearling (1) 1 Venables Deevonville Conquistador del Arunset, Irish Setter, a top quality exhibit with lots to like about him. Shoulders well laid, deep in chest & well developed hindquarters, presented a balanced outline when stacked, correct tailset & one that moved soundly. Shown in good coat & feathering should have a bright future.

Judge Michelle Webster ( Hooley )

Special Yearling (6,1) 2nd Mr K. & Mrs J. A. Venables DEEVONVILLE CONQUISTADOR DEL ARUNSET 20 month old handsome dog, Full of himself & giving handler a hard time. Different type to 1 & larger build. Well bodied. Nice head & eye. Good reach of neck, shoulders, depth of chest & spring of rib. Well angulated fore & aft, strong loin & rear quarters. Kept topline when moving & moved well, but a longer striding dog, who needs a larger ring to be fully shown to advantage. Unlucky to meet 1.

Coventry & District Gundog Society Open Show 30/11/13

Judge Lynda Fauvrelle ( Fionnlugh )

Graduate (8,1) 1st Venables Deevonville Conquistador del Arunset. Handsome dark coated boy with most pleasing head and eye. Good reach of strong neck down through correct shoulder, ample fore chest and width and depth of chest and well sprung rib. Excellent front and rear angulations, strong over loin and rear quarters and nice let down hocks. Sound and balanced movement holding top line and using his tail while driving powerfully around the ring. I made a note ‘typically Irish’ .Considered for top honours but he gave his handler such a hard time who needs to ‘stay calm and perservere’ . Good luck for the future.

East of England Championship Show 7/7/13

Judge Mr Keith Lewis ( Kegil )

Junior Dog (6,1) 1 Venables Deevonville Conquistador. Promising youngster with all the essentials and at 15 months, maturing nicely. Excellent well-sculptured head with pleasing expression and low-set ears. Good length of correct-arched and well muscled neck into correct lay of shoulder. Satifactory depth of well-ribbed chest. Shows excellent balance fore and aft both when stacked and in his positive movement., the latter giving him the decisive edge today in this class. Lightly-textured coat coming along nicely. He used his tail to pleasing effect on the move. Just needs to body up a little more but time is clearly on his side.

Midland Irish Setter Society Open Show 30/6/13

Judge Mrs Gaynor Myers ( Astrazone )

Junior Dog (6) 1 Venables’ Deevonville Conquistador, loved this youngster head, has good proportions, correct eyeset & typical raised brow, soft yet masculine expression, has everything there that the breed Standard asks for & with maturity the picture should be completed. Handler does tend to overstretch him which can make him look a little straight behind. His correct conformation however does shine through when he moves, covers the ground tidily & efficiently holding a good topline & lashing his tail.

Blackpool Championship Show 22/6/13

Judge Jackie Boyd McNeil ( Glenlokhen )

Puppy (3,1) 1 Venables’s Deevonville Conquistador 7 months old litter brothers just preferred overall balance of 1. Pleasing head with a kind eye of correct colour and shape, with that hint of puppy mischief, good through all the basics, just needs time to develop, his footfall was a little unsettled, but it’s early days, presented in good condition with a gleaming coat.
