May I take this opportunity to say many thanks to the officers and committee for such an enjoyable day.
 
PUPPY DOG (4)
1 Mathewson's SIPO TAMBA, 7 month old, very nice puppy, moved the best in the class, nice head, neck and body. Strong legs and good feet, just needs time to come together. BOS Puppy.
2 Lane & Webb's DIAMONDRIDGE AFRICAN FIRE TILO. Another attractive puppy, powerful body, lovely colour, has all the good points of the breed, lost out on movement to my first, I'm sure he'll steady up with maturity.
3 Brown's SIPO KASKAZINI NYOTO.
 
JUNIOR DOG (3)
1 Lane & Webb's OKOVANGO KINTU, just over 12 months, very nice head, neck and shoulders, good ribs and body. Very strong in quarters, moved soundly and true fore and aft
2 Mr & Mrs Brown's SIPO KASKAZINI NYOTO, was 3rd in puppy class. I see in litter brother to the puppy winner. Very similar in all aspects but not so far forward, he is only 8 months and needs time.
 
NOVICE DOG (1)
1 Mathewson's SIPO TAMBA.
 
POST GRADUATE DOG (2)
1 Piehl's MATABELLE MOZART, well balanced all through, well angulated quarters, nice lay back of shoulder, moved with plenty of drive, nice body, showed well.
2 Fairchild Olsen's SHABANI KAU MOYA, 2 1/5 year old dog who poses a very nice head, good expression, good reach of neck, nice body but not the overall balance of my first, lost out all movement.
 
LIMIT DOG(7)
1 Woodrow’s MlRENGO'S M'BALA, very typical example of the breed, well balanced, superb movement which won him the class, he really moved around the ring with a great stride. Nice head and rich colouring, good shoulder placement, muscled hindquarters, good legs and feet, developing into an impressive hound who will soon trouble the best.
2 Killick's MOSI0ATUNYA DISCOVERY, another well-moving hound, strong head, good neck and shoulders, well-made body and quarters, well presented, showed well.
3 Hick's VOORTREKKER SIMUTWE.

1 Simper’s ROSERIDGE REGENT OF MATABELLE (Imp), this handsome hound really impressed me, masculine head, good reach of neck, super front, well placed shoulders, good topline and correct length of loin, powerful quarters, beautifully constructed throughout, excellent movement. Certainly passing all his qualities as several of his offspring were placed today. Best dog and BIS.
2 Woodrow's MIRENGO'S MANDIMBA, took my eye, good head and expression, grand body and quarters, lovely bone, good feet, overall balance and condition, moved around the ring freely and with drive.

JUNIOR BITCH (2)
1 Clark's TRENDSETTER TAMANlA, sound moving bitch of quality. Pleasing head, good neck, shoulders and front, well-angulated hindquarters which she used to drive around the ring. Presented a very well balanced picture when standing, should have a good future.
