Entries: 124 for 124
Thankyou to the exhibitors for giving me such a good entry for the first time awarding challenge certificates. Although we had a super sized ring with short grass and level surface, the weather prevented us from using the outer part in some classes. Most of the exhibits were undeterred by the rain and dampness

1st - Esyntona Reindeer Moss (Mr I Hopper)
A well grown dog with a strong head, correct eye, well placed shoulders, true front and a flowing topline and tailset, in good form with a well textured coat. He moved with confidence and style.
2nd - Badgerbeck Morgan At Southash (Mr J & Mrs I M Southam)
Younger than the winner and played his handler up somewhat, he is very pleasing to go over and shows great potential for the future. I liked his narrowness and super neck and shoulder, in good condition at the moment, was erratic on the move.
