Show report for Championship Show on 6th of May, 2012
Judge Mrs Jennie Morris, Kennel Kasenga

Many thanks to the committee for giving me the opportunity to judge this very well run show and to my very efficient steward who did a wonderful job. Thanks also go to the exhibitors for a lovely entry. I looked for a good moving, handsome, well made hound who would be capable of hunting.  I found temperaments to be excellent as were ridges and I was very pleased with my winning line up in both dogs and bitches.  I was surprised however to find a number of very light boned hounds in both dogs and bitches and I feel this needs watching as the standard does call for heavy bone and this, along with good feet, is essential in a hound expected to do a days hunting.
