Thank you to the Officers and Committee to judge at this friendly well run show and to my capable 

and efficient stewards for keeping the ring running smoothly, and to the exhibitors for making the 

trip. 

VETERAN 

1ST Church's Hatchoum van de Hoge Laer at Invanse (Imp Bel). Pretty grey of classic type. 7Yrs. Head of good length, clean, parallels ok. Good stop, muzzle slightly hooked, mask defined but a little faded. Beautiful black almond eye, obliquely set with really melting expression. Well shaped ear, set well enough but very reluctant to use them. Excellent neck, onto mature body of good shape with slightly straighter front angles than rear. Excellent chest, good leg length and good bone. Such a light flowing balanced side gait, really effortless. The best mover of the day. BVIB
