Thank you very much for the good Thursday entry. I love this variety and feel that the long standing exhibitors are very dedicated. As I have reported on the other variety I judged today I was constantly surprised at how my opinion changed considerably from initially viewing the stacked line-up per class to when I assessed individual movement. I found a number of dogs not moving with the correct width of track in front and in particular the rear. There were a number of forward placed shoulders along with some steeply angled quarters which gave a stilted and restricted gait. Personally I felt there was a greater size variance represented today than I remembered from the last time I judged.
As usual the majority of exhibitors in this variety were very sporting with the one or two exceptions which were not so. I was looking for a sound well balanced hound with true movement which was also free and easy.
I found presentation to be generally good throughout and importantly found temperaments were excellent.
