ROUGH COLLIES.


JUNIOR D/B.

1ST;Barrett----Brooklynson Miley Cyrus. Lovely head properties of correct proportions. Dark eye, well set ears, which she used just enough in the class but in the challenge excelled herself that little bit extra to show that true sweet collie expression that won her B.O.B. Excellent length of neck leading to good body. Good length.of back level topline which she kept on the move. :Lovely well groomed coat of correct texture. Moved with drive and purpose. B.B & B.O.B.

2ND;Telford----Glenbowdene Shades Of Gold. This young man is all male, good head & eye, would like ears a shade higher set but he did use them when asked. Good body lines, in good coat. Moved well. Pleased to award him R.B.D.

3RD;Geddes -----Ingledene Spirit Of Legend. I didn’t get to do a critique of this young boy on the day but from memory he excels in movement. Not the head of my choosing, Good wedge shape nice dark eye and ear set but the lack of stop didn’t give the expression I was looking for. Good body lines with correct angles that obviously showed in his movement. I was pleased to award him B.P.I.B. to finish his puppy career off. I was told later he was awarded p.group 4 and also did well in stakes classes. Well done.
