    DefaultPlease comments on my girl

    I am looking for opinions from people as to if she would be a good show prospect. she is 14 weeks at the pictures.

    I hope to get some honest opinions on my puppy and appreciate help from anyone who is willing to give me an opinion. Thanks!

    I'm no expert, either, but having seen a lot of pictures of show quality Labs of all ages, to me she looks more "fieldy" than conformation. Now, like I said, I'm just basing that on what I've seen over the years. She's certainly a nice looking pup.

    I posted my comments on the other board about your pup. This is a bad age to judge a pup as they start to get all out of sorts. For me, not enough bone, head, coat. But also I don't know what show labs look like in Australia, if they tend to follow the US or UK standard or their own. Kind of reminds me of what some of the US champions from the 70's and 80's looked like.

    Thanks so much for the comments, I do agree with you all, what i've notice is that she doesnt have enough bone and the head. She has Croftsway and Windfall bloodline in her.

    Just my curiosity, I've heard people talked about Old and Modern type of labradors, is it because of some changes in the breed standard? and what if i use an AI from a long time deceased sire for my bitch, can the puppies compete with nowadays type?

    I am a newbie in labradors, especially breeding, an explanation from you guys is much appreciated. Thanks!

    No, the standard here really has not changed significantly other than the addition of DQs for certain faults (height etc).
    I personally liked the style of lab winning in the 80's and 90's much better than what seems to be trendy now. They were more moderate boned and athletic back then, and without so much the overdone head and coat as today's are.

    As for your pup, it seems like her rear angulation is a bit exaggerated (our standard calls for moderate angulation), and hock height would be a concern to me. How does this pup move? Agree that head and coat is lacking at this age but who knows, that may change. I like looking at my pups at ~7 - 8 wks, and not again til ~6 mos.

    While she's cute, I really wouldn't consider her show quality.
