Nice angulation in the rear, good tail set and brushlike. Good feet. He moved with a good reach and drive , easy and light on his feet. Out of coat, so everything on show, and no hiding place, I think he still has a little more maturing to do. Overall another nicely balanced dog.So nice to watch on the move, RBOB.

Lovely expression, with a keen look. Good length of neck and layback of shoulder, good length to upper arm.and good depth of chest, and brisket stopping just above the elbow. Nice length of leg, and slope of front pastern.Feet nice shape, not too tight or flat. Good top line, nicely coupled , arched over the loin, and noticeable tuck up, Good slope of croup and tail set, brushlike of correct length. Nice angulation throughout, very balanced and moved soundly and with good easy ground covering reach and drive. A very standard fitting siberian, my only comment would be that when standing she seems tucked under and needs stretching out just a little to see her lovely well balanced overall shape. BOB.
