I am a newbie, so I am probably wrong. He looks like a nice boy especially for 6 months of age. It's hard to see his front assembly because of the angle, but it appears to be pretty well-angulated. I think he has great body depth and nice underline with little tuck-up. His cannon bones appear to be a bit too long; otherwise, I think he has nice hind legs, too. He looks short-coupled which is also good. Are his front paws splayed? They kind of look interesting from the angle of the photo. Who are Raider's parents? Is he a show prospect? Again, don't take my word as gospel.
If you go to windroselabradors.com His father is AM INT Champion Hennings Mills Common Market "lewis"
The legs appear longish because he is just at that stage of growth where he appears a bit leggy..Good layback according to me and the topline appears ok . You would just need to wait until he turns about 12 months or so to see how he comes along ( wait it out i'm also waiting to see how pluto truns out so join the club)
What does that mean?Are his front paws splayed?

Splayed means turned outward. Here is an example of splayed front paws:Quote

Again, the angle of the picture of Raider is not the best one.
Who is the Dam?
He's young, so it will be interesting to see him when he's older. It's hard to see him properly due to the angle on the photo. I don't notice much in the second thigh. He looks a little tall which is probably due to being young and gangly.
Do you show him or is he a pet?
Splayed means the toes are spread out.Originally Posted by jzgrlduff

That's my Scotty boy. I did not know it was called "easty-westy" though.The picture Tatyana posted is a dog who is easty-westy.
First of all I just wanna say I think Raider is GORGEOUS... but I don't know much about showing...
And now probably a dumb question is there a opposite of easty-westy, what do you call that??? ???
