1st JD, Geoff Hyde 'well grown tri colour shown in good order, 14 months old possesses a good length of head, good neck and body shape, movement difficult to assess due to him being too full of himself, when he settles he should do quite well.'
Yorkshire Collie Club Open
1st Junior Dog, Simon Burton 'Young tri dog only a week out of puppy and looking and behaving like it! Delightful temperament though and full of the joys. A little square at the moment and needing to drop into himself which is to be expected. A masculine, typy head developing of good length with good eye and correct stop, hope his ears sort themselves out. Good flow over topline and depth of body with pleasing rear angulation and super length of tail. Shoulder could have a little more layback and this showed through on the move as it restricts his extension in front. Surprisingly accurate up and down for a dog of his age but his well muscled condition would have a lot to do with that. In great coat with a lovely healthy sheen and I did note his lovely feet. Someone works hard on this dog and it shows to their credit – well done.'

Super feet. Well ribbed body. Level topline. Could have a little more hind angulation. Fairly true out and back, used rear well when got into a stride.'
