We had a good-sized ring, a quite warm but slightly windy day, which had an effected on the way some of the hounds moved.
Hills Shimmeree Calico’s Cupid. Beautiful pretty 6mth old bitch. Lovely light movement. Nice head and expression. Good neck Excellent front, good top line strong loin into strong hindquarters. Covers the ground standing and moving. Best Puppy. She went on to take puppy hound group 1. Congratulations.
1 Reed and Place Dejare a Dash of Hope. Attractive cream and white bitch. Covers the ground standing and on the move. Well place shoulder and upper arm into well placed front legs of good bone neat feet . Good loin and strong well-made hind quarters.
2 Wilton-Clark Shalfleet Making Waves Striking brindle male. Nicely made, and well muscled, not quite the front of one, and a little shorter in the back, nice hind quarters, and tail set. The wind did not help him today, but still a nice mover.
