Cranfield’s – Zefather’s Rumour Has It – fawn bitch with pleasing head of good proportions. Long well arched neck set on good lay of shoulder. Balanced front & rear assembly. Ribs deep, well sprung, back & loin strong. Moved well, would like to see her when she’s in full coat. Res. BOB
Kelleway’s – Damarkann Raydiance With Stevarah – black mantle bitch eyes not quite so appealing as 1 & a little shorter in upper arm, hence not the front reach of 1.
