Can I just ask - they seem much smaller and more delicate than the English Setters here - is that the case, or is it just the pictures?

This litter was a bit small when they were born. All the boys are within standard, but they are on the small side. Jack is the smallest of all the boys and I know he's within standard, which is 25 inches for boys, because I have measured him, but he is just barely there. Alot of the boys shown today are 27 inches or taller. Good Observation!!

And, by the way, AKC has no height disqualification for English Setters. Neither does UKC, I think.

They're so gorgeous. I have to admit I'm getting more fond of the breed! Thanks for sharing pics!

You see a few English Setters round here (being ruralish England) and my ond librarian used to show them at crufts. They just seem a bit heftier!

And being that you live in a different country that may make a big difference too. Every country seems to have some sort of difference in their dogs compared to other countries.
