1st: 1271 Buchanan & Maclaren’s TARMACHAN TIPSY LAIRD a very impressive youngster who has everything going for him. He presents an eye-catching picture of a well-balanced hound who is of pleasing size and proportions. Handsome and breed typical in head and expression, he has ideal bone and body and is soundly constructed in front, body and hindquarters. Moved with true extension in front and parallel drive behind. One who has a bright future in the show ring. My Reserve CC winner in good company.

1st: 1280 McGregor’s CLAELA INFINITY AND BEYOND BRAILLEMENT a well grown tri youngster who is breed typical in appearance; he is well boned and bodied with good spring of rib and level top line. Pleasing head shape, would prefer more oval shaped eyes. Pleasing forequarters, head set on strong neck of decent length. Needs to develop and mature in body and tighten in forelegs and strengthen in hindquarters to be at his best. Would prefer him to have more extension in front movement.
