Thank you all
for the pleasure of this
engagement to judge Miniature Long Haired, I thoroughly loved going over
this variety, how it has changed in the last few years. There were a few
flat feet, elbows in some were proud, on some ribs were flat sided, a
few teeth needed a clean. I found that most of my winners were offspring
of the BOB winner. *MPD.* 1. Pike and Carter’s, Zarcrest Flash Harry at
Breezleyn. Silver dapple. In profile balanced boy, good forehand and
shoulder. Good coat, kept topline on the move. Moved soundly. *PD.* 1.
Hall’s, Cliffmere Woodman. Red, stood out for one so young, filled my
hands when going over him. Enough coat. Moved out covering the ground.
BPIB. 2. Broad’s, Dinkydax Dionysus. Shaded red. Smaller than winner.
Unfortunate to meet the winner. 3. Hall and Osbourne’s, Dinkidax All
Fired Up. *JD. *1. Payton’s, Garbosa Prince of Thieves of Marajo. Black
and tan. Good bone throughout his construction. Balanced, strong
movement. *PGD.* 1. Wallaces’, Willowheath Rebel Rock. Black and tan.
