Would like to thank SSSC for inviting me to judge there summer show, had a lovely day judging some beautiful shelties. The atmosphere was great and great Scottish hospitality.     Minor Puppy Dog (2,0)  1. Simpson- Clemwood Rhums All Gone-what a little cutie, just 6mths having a great time. A S/W with sweet expression, flat skull, good eye, and neat under jaw with well used ears, in good coat, showed well and moved well for age. BPD  2. Noble- Gemshells Silver Eclipse-What a lovely temperament this boy had absolutely loving his day in the ring. B/M a bigger type than 1. all over, but balanced over all. Moved ok once got going.  Puppy Dog (1,0)  1. Noble- Gemshells Silver Eclipse- 2nd in previous class  Junior Dog (3,0)  1. Smith- Orean On The Nightrain-Handsome S/S/W. This boy has lovely under jaw, flat skull, well placed and used ears, onto a well arched neck. Good level topline, sweeping turn of stifle and short hocks, on neat feet. Feel he just needs time to fill and mature. RBD  2. Lewis- Sandwick Curtain Call At Sonmarvic- S/W A stronger type to 1. Have to comment on how well he was groomed, perfection. Beautiful rear angulation he had, good turn of stile and neat hocks, on tight feet. Moved well and held topline on the move.  3. Noble- Gemshells Silver Eclipse  Yearling Dog (1,0)  1. Smith- Orean Rich Tone- S/S/W boy, who had left his coat at home, but nothing to hide. Good clean head, almond shaped eye, flat skull, just enough stop. Well placed and very well used ears.

Gray- Shenachie Minstrel Boy- Tri boy of 2 years old in full bloom, coat jet black with rich tan points. Moved super. Showed very well.  Graduate Dog (1,1)  1. Sangster- Amethrickeh Stormi Wizard- This Handsome B/M I could just take home, I have done him well before and not a lot has changed other than he has matured, still a young man but boy is this lad super to go over. Not a showman as such but you must see past this as his construction and movement are sensational. His head, is so balanced, well rounded muzzle, good underjaw, beautiful almond eye, flat skull, and well placed ears, well arched neck, front angulations are text book, good lay of shoulder and a super upperarm. Level topline, enough length of loin, sweeping turn on stifle and short neat hocks, tail past the hock. All of this and of course his movement is second to none.
