Thankyou to the following judges during 2014 who thought highly
enough of Connor to place him and deliver the
5th January - Heywood and radcliffe - Judge Marion Hunt
Courthill Crimson Shadow, a heavily marked brindle who you have to
get your hands on to appreciate all his qualities.
His markings make him look too heavy but this is not the case.
The best mover in the class from all angles. Well balanced
with nice head and strong neck, deep chest and strong muscled quarters.
Good bone and excellent feet, strong under jaw.
11th January - Boston - Judge Dawn Mason
Smith’s Courthill Crimson Shadow ShCM Quality brindle dog, a little feminine for me but cannot deny his soundness and type. Lovely head and expression. Correct shoulder and nice topline.
Shown in super condition.
16th January - Manchester - Judge Keith Thornton
Courthill Crimson Shadow, brindle of smaller type.
A good honest whippet, nothing fancy. Nice head, excellent front,
nice bend of stifle and super mover.
5th April - Whippet Club - Judge Johnstone McLeod
Smith's Courthill Crimson Shadow, Quality F/Br that pushed hard for top spot,
presented in gleaming coat and hard condition, masculine head with neat ears,
excellent neck into shoulders, clean front with good fill, good feet,
correct topline and spring of rib. Sound rear quarters which he used on the move.
A sound honest dog with nothing exagerated.
