Midland Counties 2017 Judged by Alan Beeston

Judging Report

Judge: Mr Alan Beeston (Sanadal)


I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the Exhibitors who made our breed the third highest entry in the Utility Group and also to my two Ring Stewards, Sarah & Angela, who kept things running efficiently.
All Class winners were warmly applauded and Exhibits were presented in good overall condition with clean teeth and coat. There were one or two good dogs who were unfortunately somewhat unsettled on the day which did affect my placings in certain Classes. There were some variations in size, make & shape in a few of the Classes however I was pleased with my overall winners who exhibited correct sustainable flowing movement and good conformation to the Breed Standard. The higher Classes had many quality exhibits which it was a pleasure to Judge.
