An excellent show with many quality ESS to go over, I found the size and type varied a great deal with some heads being strong with light eyes. Movement was rather erratic in many with very little reach and drive being the norm. Our breed needs owners who are setting up breeding programmes to seek advice from those who have been in the breed for many years and 'been there, done that' who I am certain will offer sound advice and the correct direction.
