A fabulous entry of 117, full of quality. Having recently read a show report on males, I was quite concerned. I can honestly say there were about ten males I would have signed a CC for. Perhaps a different entry.
1 Emmett & Simons' Ellemstra Against All Odds. Rising 9 mths, very good size on this black, he has a very pleasing head and eye, good ears, scored in neck and front, good quarters, topline needs to settle, bold spotting, very good quarters, moved well out and back.
2 Williams' Tolkain Storm King From Phadante. Another good puppy who scored on size, good body and topline, well spotted, moved well in profile with good tail set, needs to firm up behind
1 Locke-McFadzean's Caprillis Panache Over Sassafras TAF. Very eyecatching and very continental in shape. He has a lovely head, good eyes and ears, excellent neck and front, good bone and body condition, well developed throughout, he moved very steady, lovely coat, spotting and condition. BPD
2 Mather's Taliory Saddleside Legend. A good youngster of a pleasing size, very pleasing head and eye, excellent neck and front, sound in bone and body with good quarters, he moved well.
3 Alcock's Kayjule Kepler At Dalspartan
1 Millington & Holland's Capearlla Its On Ice. This young black was a little unsettled to handle, I could see past this. He is a lovely boy, very good size and shape, very pleasing head and eye, good body condition, sound quarters, moved very well both ways and good in profile.
2 Sims' Mullabuoy Magic Man For Snowspeeder. Another good black, again he was good for size, liked his head and eye, sound in topline, moved very well, just lacking in body condition.

1 Todhunter Robinson & Robinson's Millbelle Rocky Mountain. A lovely young liver boy, liked his size, he has a lovely head and eye with good pigment and colour, excellent body shape, good bone and feet, well ribbed, sound quarters, he moved very well. I'm sure his day will come.
