Breed Open Show

9-2-19

I was delighted to accept this judging appointment and want to take a moment to thank you all for making it such a wonderful experience for me. I would most of all like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge at this show and all the exhibitors who entered under me. Special thanks to both of my stewards, who were both excellent and kept everything running smoothly.

Overall exhibits were presented in good clean condition. No serious health issues were noted and generally eyes, nostrils & tails were good. Movement on a whole was not great on the day, but could be a different story on a different day.
