It is 4 years since last I judged the breed. I would like to thank the exhibitors for a lovely entry. I thought that overall quality was good and this small band of enthusiasts should be congratulated. There was also a very good atmosphere around the ring.

Nicely arched neck, leading to a good depth of chest and adequate forechest. High set tail. Nicely angulated rear and well muscled. Sound light action with adequate reach and drive.
