BORDER JUDGE BOURNEMOUTH 21
I very much enjoyed tackling this entry and found the breed to be in pretty good shape. Quite a relaxed and friendly atmosphere I thought. I did take coats into account, there were quite a lot who were rather naked on the day and as a result went further down the line that they might otherwise have done – you have to judge what you can see, and a good coat is important in a working terrier.
1st -Ragatam Eros (Miss T Peacock) Really lovely pup to start. Liked his proportions and whilst slightly loose he moved with an easy stride. Good head with strong muzzle. Enough neck. Well balanced in angulation. Level,topline. In super coat. Can tighten in feet.
2nd -Arunmere Midnight Cowboy (Mrs A J Parsons) He has a v good, masc head. Enough neck. Slightly too short in back and steep in croup. Well ribbed. Coat just holding on. Super feet.
