Veteran (1,0) 1. Bentonís Alopex Marionette of Oakestelle. 7 yr old b/m b shown in hard condition. Balanced head with neat ears, strong neck flowing into a good length of back. Correct angles, well off for bone and nicely broken clear colour. Just starting to show her age on the move, RBOB & BVIS.
Puppy & Junior (0,0)
Post Graduate (2,0)1. Brownís Blamorder Back In Town. This 21/2 yr old tri b has much to like about her. Excellent angulation, solid bone, really black harsh coat and good topline. Her head shape is correct, but ears could be tighter to enhance her expression. Movement needs to tighten up. 2. Gloverís Oakestelle Indie Rock at Stormsett.
Limit (1,0) 1. Peacockís Blamorder Back To The Start For Saraneth. Tri litter sister to the winner of PG and she is very similar in many ways. Extremely fit bitch with a correct balanced head, excellent neck and perfect angles making a lovely outline. On the move, she is however a little out of control. Still though an easy BB & BOB.
Open Dog (2,1) 1.Bentonís Oakestelle Vivaldi. 21/2 yr old tri, who still needs to mature a little. Correct head planes and lovely rounded muzzle, good length of back, harsh coat and well carried tail. Movement was adequate, but many dogs today were a little hesitant on the flooring. BD.
Open Bitch (1,0)1.Bentonís Oakestelle Venus De Milo. Litter sister to the OD and she too needs time to mature. Harsh coat of correct colour, good head planes, but stop still needs to clear. Neat well used ears, nicely arched neck and strong topline. I would prefer a little more length of back for that ideal collie balance.
