1st & my CC winner was Hales Wizaland Cool Nifty Fifty JW. I
have already sung the praises of this breeding earlier in this report.
In this 2 year old black and white male I found my star of the day. He
is outstanding. His size and balanced overall make and shape are all
that one would ask from a border collie. He has a great head, muzzle,
stop, back skull. Eyes and ears perfect. His reach of neck, top line,
croup and loin very good. Spring of rib is correct, front upper arm and
shoulder are sound. That enables him to cover the ground with good
front extension. His rear build is good, enabling him to have the sound
drive. He was in sparkling condition. His black and white coat
presented well, he was lovely to handle and his temperament is
outstanding. My co-judge and I could not agree on the best of breed
