My thanks to the officers and committee for inviting me to judge pointers at their very well-run show. As always, thank you to my 2 stewards Steph and Bruce who were very efficient and above all thank you to all exhibitors for bringing their dogs for my evaluation. Sadly, the small ring affected how some dogs moved.

Classical head with all the detail and work in with slight dish appearance, correct scissor bite, well defined stop and pronounced occipital, thin leathers set high. Long muscular neck leading into well laid shoulder, pasterns strong, good depth of brisket, well sprung ribs which were carried well back.

Orange and White dog that appealed greatly for type, sadly he was a little tense which effected the overall picture. He has a lovely head with ample work, slight dish appearance, well defined stop. Fine leathers, neck muscular and well arched, well laid shoulders, good depth of body, firm topline and well angulated hindquarters. Moved soundly.
