and well placed ears, good length of neck, good forechest, good bone, good depth

bone, depth and well developed rear, good condition but not quite as together on
the move as winner today. 3 Hughes' Dachsarah Roust About.
JD(4) 1 Mitchell's Bronia Mr Pepys.

He has a balanced body and stands on good feet, holds good level topline and overall outline when covering the ground with good active movement. Completes the required picture with good coat of the correct texture and I still feel he has some more to come, CC and BOB and nice to see him go on to 4th BIS. 2 Duchesne's Bronia Priam Of Scandell.
