Thank you to the committee for the invitation to judge the males. A superb venue with excellent facilities. Whilst I was disappointed with the entry, the quality of the majority of exhibits was not. I thank all of you for your entries and sportsmanship on the day. All exhibits had 2 testicles and had good dentition but some could be cleaner, especially given the age of the dog. Most exhibits where in clean condition, in varying stages of dress. Temperaments were sound, just one a little unsure.

1st Bygoly Willis 15mth Black and Tan Large strong masculine male with a good head and expression, ears could be firmer, slightly jowly. Pronounced wither, with a good topline into a well angled slightly short croup. Good angles fore and rear. Good height to length ratio, slightly narrow but chest needs to develop, stands straight in front, hocks slightly in. On the move showed correct coming and slightly hocky away, a powerful side gait once he settles. Given his size and age his development is where it needs to be.
2nd Chapelforge Angus with Norwolf 12 mth Black and Tan. Good head but light eye detracts. Normal wither into a firm top line, croup could be longer and better angled. Stands and moves correct away and back. Side action lacked drive on the day and appeared to drop in the fore on occasions.

1st Wakematts Tako 21mth Black and Tan Middle sized, masculine head and expression with a kind eye. Gave the impression of being self assured with a calm and steady nerve. Good bone and substance. Developed chest with good angles, high wither into a smooth topline with a well moulded croup. Good rear angles and turn of stifle. Stood correct and moved away and back at all speeds correctly. His side movement was a pleasure to watch, effortless ground covering action, retaining his topline at all speeds. Shown in excellent coat and condition. CC and Best In Show on the referree’s decision.

1st Desjiem Van De Herdersfarm (Imp Deu) 2 ½ yrs Black and Tan Masculine head and expression. Above middle size. High wither, good topline into a good croup. Good angles fore and rear.
