Merioneth Agricultural Society

Collie (Rough)

O. 1st - Bluck’s Phreelancer Chill Factor For Elshajo. 4yr old Blue Merle male. A very pleasing, masculine, dog with excellent breed type. Good head with plenty of back skull. Well moulded fore face and well placed eye, correct ear carriage and good collie expression. Good ribbing, strong loin and good bend of stifle. On the move he is steady and true. Stood alone but absolutely deserved his BOB and very pleased to see him win the Pastoral group. Well done. 

Shetland Sheepdog

P. Two litter sister at 8 months old and markedly different specimens. 

1st - Sandham’s Balidorn Show dance. Sable and White bitch, very pretty girl. Beautiful shape. Pleasing head with lovely dark eye. Well placed ears which she used to advantage. Good neck, good layback of shoulder and correct return of upper arm. Good top line and correct tail set and length. Strong rear and correct bend of stifle. On the move she had a good rear action, though a little choppy in the front which let her down but I liked her enough to award her BOB and BPIB and hope to see her when mature. Pleased to see her placed in the puppy group.

2nd - Sandham’s Balidorn Starlight tricolour bitch, much smaller than her sister. Almost toy like in head. Very unsettled with a new handler and not making the best of herself. 

PG 1st Botham’s Nutmeg. 16 month old sable and white bitch. Pleasing, balanced outline. Head planes correct but skull a little flared and eyes light. Moved ok, would prefer a stronger rear.
