Kefir

Kefir joined us, aged 15 weeks, in January 2016. We have long admired her successful parents, and the opportunity to import her was too good to turn down. A very pretty puppy from an exceptional litter, she settled in well with our other dogs.

We are delighted with how she is maturing. An extremely well put together bitch with a superb wire coat, fantastic hunter and stylish pointer, as well as affectionate and loyal. We couldn’t ask for more.

Kefir is hip scored and HUU Clear by parentage.

Judges’ Critiques

“Rising two-year-old bitch whom I thought just stunning. Correctly made all the way through. So well muscled. Moved with so much style and at one with her expert handler, a real joy to go over … my BOB and G1.”
Best of Breed
GROUP 1
Dianne Rourke-Knights, Merioneth, August 2017

“One I have judged and admired before and is maturing into a super bitch, classic head with lovely expression, low set ears, good reach of neck, well angulated shoulders, chest deep and ribs well sprung, level topline, strong well muscled hindquarters. Moved so well in the challenge with that extra sparkle to earn her BNSC, G1.”

GROUP 1
Colin Woodward, Anglesey, May 2017

“Walker’s Zoldmali Kefir of Lanokk JW ShCM. I thought this young lady was just outstanding, beautiful outline displaying good balance. Well proportioned feminine head, ears set in correctly, eye colour complimenting her coat colour, moderate slightly arched neck; good lay of shoulder, straight forelegs and slightly sloping pasterns, excellent topline and croup. Moderate hind angulation and strong well let down hocks, good coat texture. So sound and true, a perfect package making her my group winner today. A future champion surely!”

Bridgette Bodle, Caernarfon, March 2017

“First impression when moving is of a well structured bitch and she did not disappoint when handled. Nicely balanced head with a strong neck of good length. Well laid shoulders into a strong straight back. Close elbows and neat feet. Good depth of chest with an appropriate width and moderate spring to ribs. Good coarse coat. Strong muscles to hindquarters to produce a clean driving action. Easily the best moving dog in this class today.”

Rachel Thompson, Windsor Championship Show, July 2016

“Walker’s Zoldmali Kefir of Lanokk, at nearly 9 months an exciting prospect. Very co-ordinated for one so young, balanced on the stack and move. Strong limbs that your hands flowed over, firm topline. The harshest of jackets covering a well constructed youngster. For me a little strong in head and the eyes need to darken, this will come with time and will soften her in outlook.”
Chris Guest, Three Counties Championship Show, June 2016

“Walker’s Zoldmali Kefir of Lanokk, oh wow, how lucky this owner is! What a little cracker with such potential, I just can’t believe how balanced she is, it is as if she has been here before because she knew exactly what to do and she did it all with style and panache. In lovely coat and condition, not overcoated but what she has is the correct texture, such a feminine head and expression, excellent neck and shoulders, strong topline and well set tail, lovely type and she is quality. I can’t wait to see her progress. Best Puppy Bitch and Best Puppy in Show.”
