English Setter

StartFragmentFrom Rooster, a Field Trial Fable: "There isn't much that's cowboy-like in an English Setter. Unclipped, it has a long, flowing coat and feathered tail and looks more suited for the show ring than for sport. Clipped, it might call to mind sun-bleached, ticked, and fringed buckskin, if there needs to be a western conceit. There is a grace to its run, windswept and ephemeral, but rugged nonetheless, like a bareback rider of the plains. The setter's point is regal in aspect, commanding, not threatening like a gunslinger. If it is to be compared to a chess piece like the others in our story, then it might be thought of as the queen." www.Roosterafable.comEndFragment
