Really nice class of juniors
1st Stephens Ravenho Up Town Girl For Brightmeadow JW, super curly who is so well handled. Only 16 months so the best is yet to come. Balanced throughout creating a nice picture set up. Would like a little more bone for a curly if nit picking. Stood on super feet. Lovely neck into well-constructed front assembly. Muscled and pleasant turn of stifle with good second thigh. Moved very well in profile and clean coming and going. BAVNSC
