Critique - Judge: Mrs Chris Butler (Rubymoon)

Thank you to the society for inviting me to judge, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience .The stewards were most helpful, keeping everything flowing ,so a big Thank you to them .Also last but by no means least , Thank you to all exhibitors for giving me such a lovely entry.

I do however have to point out that some exhibits looked stunning stacked , but didn’t move well ,particularly hind action .Some exhibits were rather plump and lacked muscle which did affect movement and outline .However I was very pleased with all winners .

On a sad note we had a minutes silence following news of the death of Mabel Coulter whose affix was Lurgavon .Condolences are sent to her family and friends.
