Hovawarts
Thanks to the exhibitors for bringing their dogs under me and to my two stewards for their efficient running of the ring and to the committee for providing a good size ring which allowed the dogs to move out freely.

JunB 2(2) 1. Fasskoleys Magenta. BP 2.Fasskoleys Cadmium Scarlett. Two 11mth old sisters at much the same stage of development.Both a little narrow just now and flying their ears. Both held their good level toplines on the move. Just preferred the better angulation of 1.PGB 1. Isalynn v Elderens’Hof sturdily built blonde, very good level topline, deep chest, good underline. Balanced angulation, good tail, tidy feet, excellent pigmentation.Would prefer more shading in the good blonde colour.RBB 2. Zwartbos Moet feminine head, well set ears carried correctly, would prefer stronger face markings. Deep body but a shade narrow and rises over rump. Balanced angles, moved out well but close behind. 3.Zwartbos Ventnor OB 1. Fasskoleys Silke very good typical bitch with correct proportions. Very good body lines, balanced angles, slightly sloping croup, correct markings a tad overdone. Very good coat in lovely condition BB. 2 Driftingsky Mist one I have done well before but let down today by her dipping topline. Apart from the topline she is a typical picture of a mature female. Correct in all departments, proportion, angulation, coat and markings.3. Zwartbos Arreton
