Open Show March 18th.

I would like to thank Ayrshire Collie Club for inviting me to Judge their 60th Anniversary open show on March 18th 2018.
To all the exhibitors thank you for the good entry. And to my able stewards thanks.

A day to remember, thanks again to all.
When judging, when it comes to setting up your dogs to show to Judge you need to make sure the dog is standing correctly as first Impressions Make the Difference.
