Nat Gundog 14

Thank you to the exhibitors for the super entry both in numbers & depth of quality, I was spoilt for choice in quite a few classes & some good exhibits had to go cardless. Sadly the dark hazel almond shaped eyes were very few & far between which does affect the expression, also rear movement in quite a few was very close to the point of some hocks actually rubbing together. The ring did not help with all the uneven ground & holes often making dogs look unbalanced. That said I was more than happy with my winners and presentation on the whole was really good & I thoroughly enjoyed my day.
