WINDSOR ROUGH COLLIES
I would like to thank the officers and committee for inviting me to judge at their very prestigious show doing my 1st CC appointment ,which was deferred from 2020 due to COVID ,A huge thank you to the wonderful stewards , I would like to thank you all for allowing me to go over all your dogs , There were a lot of variations in head make & shape , But saying that there were lots of quality in both sexes , There were a few exhibits having round eyes , There were also quite a few who need some dental hygiene to remove the tartar .Overall presentation was very good , thank you for accepting my decisions , it was a lovely day and weather good for the dogs but a bit cooler for all watching
