I would like to thank the officers and committee for asking me to judge Smooth Collies at their open show, I was very well looked after and enjoyed my day I would also like to thank my steward Sophie Ray who did a sterling job and kept things moving along. And also the exhibiters for entering under me and taking my decisions in a good sporting manner. My only criticism is of some of the exhibits had dirty teeth, but I was very pleased with my main winners. SYD (3) 1 French's Breckmore By Design a Blue, of good size and colour, who stood out in this class and my star of the day, a good clean and well balanced head, nice almond shaped eye, ears bang on top giving a lovely expression, he as a good length of neck into well shaped shoulders, nice deep chest good rear angles, floated round the ring keeping a level top line, at one with his handler, I think this boy will be joining the upper house soon, I was pleased to award him BD BOB and pleased to see him go BIS. 2 Cole's Sturtmoor Dream of Kasvelyn Sable of good size good eye, well set ears nice length of neck good shoulders, good angles moved well pity to meet first im sure they could change places.

June Fort *This Report Appeared :* 27/05/2016 Collie Association 8.5.16 Rough Collies. I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge roughs at their recent open show. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Thanks must also go to my very efficient stewards Val & Vic and to everyone in the kitchen for the lovely lunch. The sun was shining and the showground was fabulous, with large rings and a spacious grass area with plenty room for tents and cages. I was very happy with the overall quality of exhibits and so glad to see that we have managed to breed out the weak rear ends and cow hocks. Temperaments were excellent, great to see happy outgoing dogs enjoying their day. Movement on the whole was really good with only a few moving close behind. I did notice that many exhibits had ears which are too heavy and set too wide apart which spoils the alert expression we are looking for. Thank you for allowing me to handle your dogs and being sporting with my decisions. VD (2,1) 1st Wray's Takhisis High Voltage. Masculine b/m dog who is 9 years young. He stood 4 square and showed non - stop. He has a wealth of coat which is well marbled and a light colour of blue, and has retained a rich tan colour on his face which makes it hard to believe his age! He has a head of good proportions with a good stop, flat skull, dark, almond almond-shaped eye and well-set ears which all combine to give a charming expression. He has a fairly long neck, level topline, well-sprung ribs and a deep chest giving him a nice overall shape. His well-bent stifles and parallel hocks enable him to power around the ring with drive and precision. He looked a picture in the challenge to take RBD over his younger competitors
