This is the first time I have
judged this variety at this level. I was very impressed with the overall quality
of the exhibits. I do think that size is a
problem in some of the exhibits, they are big
and heavy. Coats were good and clean. Temperaments was very good. I really
enjoyed my day. V. (4). 1. Sutton's, Damai Master Benedict Sh
