Many thanks to the committee for their invite to judge Best In Show at their lovely club, I received a very warm welcome from everyone and it was a real privilege to judge this well attended, friendly show.
BEST IN SHOW
Walker/Ritchie’s Starlenga Nina Simone. (Collie (Rough)). A beautifully presented young blue merle bitch of just 9 months old, lovely head proportions, very feminine with nice eye, good ears, correct neck and front assembly, beautifully made throughout, lovely, well muscled rear with good bend of stifle and strong well let down hocks, she moved around the ring effortlessly with the utmost confidence, it was a pleasure to give this young lady Best In Show and I’m sure she has a very promising future ahead of her.
RESERVE BEST IN SHOW
Forbes’ Degallo Blonde Ambition. (Shetland Sheepdog). Another nice example of her breed at 2 years with very feminine head and endearing expression, nicely made all through with good angulation in front and rear, sound body proportions and lovely outline, she moved out well covering the ground effortlessly, shown in lovely coat of good texture and condition.
