Thank you to the committee for my very first judging appointment and thank you to all those who entered. 

SA P D/B (0)

SA PG D/B (5,4)
1 DENTON's Ryecombe Jaffa Jake. Lovely Veteran Tri Dog of 10 years. Well balanced with clean head. Correct almond eye yet could be darker. True confirmation however lacking muscle tone with age, which showed in his otherwise sound movement. Could tell that in his prime he was an appealing dog. 

SA O D/B (9,3)
1 DENTON's Brackenhaye Heart and Soul. Stunning Tri Bitch of 2 years. Particularly loved her balanced head, sweet expression and ear carriage. Body followed suit, with well arched neck leading to good layback of shoulder, strong loin and rounded stifle. Movement sound. Overall, exactly what a smooth collie should be. Would be very capable of completing a day's work
2. LUSTY's AM GR CH/CAN GCH Cardross Red Dirt Road to Blamorder. Handsome veteran dog of 7 years. Beautiful confirmation with stunning free-flowing movement. This up to size dog has a strong head pattern which matched his body. Lovely boy, just a little too much for me. 
3. CARPENTER'S Plaisance Eva La Belle
