The YAHS held an Open Show in Sheffield on Sunday 10th of February. My thanks must go to the Secretary and Committee for inviting me to judge and providing such good hospitality. Also a special thank you to both of my excellent stewards and to all exhibitors for bringing such a variety of lovely hounds for me to judge and for accepting my decisions with such good sportsmanship. My disappointment of the day was the number of coarse heads with red third eyelids, which so detract from the expression.
