Moved out well only just pipped for BP. 2nd Wiltshire & Wiltshire - Mighty Marvin At Littlelibbs I see he’s half brother to 1st & I actually preferred his head but he hasn’t got the front of 1 & he is a little bum high at present, he has the required ground clearance & put in a good performance enjoying his outing. PD 3 1st Bullis Amaffrey Henry, classic conical head shape & correct 50/50 skull /muzzle length to this almost 12mnth lad. Super length of neck flowing into topline which was held strongly on the move. Good length of upperarm & another with underline merging gently to line of abdomen.

JD 4.1 1st Halsall Kiddles Kola liked the curvy shape of this boy equal both ends & a stronger topline than 2, almond shaped dark eyes with a very slight arch of skull. He has sufficient bone with arched toes, great quarters not exaggerated & covered with muscle so moved out with drive. 2nd Woods Mylforbe Boliver this brindle lad challenged his handler moving although when he did settled it was free & easy.

Plenty of breastbone giving the depressions & adequate boned legs with correct full broad front feet.
