Class of promising puppies, all at different ages and different stages of maturity 

1ST Moore’s Blamorder Ridin on a Rainbow to Manordeifi 

Liked the balance and shape of this young tri bitch, flat skull and tapering muzzle with good planes, correct eye shape and ear set, ear carriage needs a bit more time to settle, good neck and front with firm body and correct rear, tail of correct length, free and easy mover RBB, BP 

2ND Glover’s Stormsett Snow Crystal

Really nice b/m just 6 months, lovely sweet expression, excellent type and very sound, just needs  some practice, confident, correctly built and carried herself very well. 

3RD Gant’s Cownbred Night of Dreams

Another very nice tri male, really good for type, very nice head and ears with good expression, could firm up a little in topline and needs some time to mature, sound and typical movement RBD

Very pretty b/m with a sweet expression, correctly proportioned skull and foreface with correct size, shape and colour of eyes and correct position of ears, used well, no trace of coarseness, balanced angulation, well proportioned with good topline and gentle rise of loin, stood true on good feet  

and moved effortlessly and with drive BB, BOB

2ND Moore’s Tomalca Buttons'n'Bows at Manordeifi

S/w very nice for type and shape, larger build than 1, again a balanced head giving the correct expression, lovely eye shape and colour and used her ears well, firm neck and body, well angulated and very sound with a good length of stride, light and powerful. 

3RD Flower’s Breckamore Butterfigers SHCM

 Really liked the overall make and shape of this tri, not quite the eye shape and expression of the others but another very well made and sound moving Collie.
