Well they did all refer to Cotton, I've always heard he was relatively slow out there. But the last person I talked to, who used to run field trials with her goldens, said she felt like a lot of the FT goldens begin to loose some of their spirit and style by the time they reach that level, and she gave a specific example of a more current golden than Cotton. She felt it was due to all the pressure put on the dogs to get to that level.
But she has gotten out of field work completely and has switched over to agility, so maybe it was just sour grapes, I don't know.
