Thanks go to my stewards who kept everything running so smoothly. Thank you to all the exhibitors for their support and the sporting way in which they accepted my decisions, the ringside atmosphere was fantastic. I had been looking forward to my appointment as it was a few years since I last judged the breed and I was pleased with the overall quality and size of those entered.
