In the junior section of the breed classes in Stirling, the top spot went to Cardona Edwin S001 from Robbie Galloway. Born May this year, he’s by Nightingale Dunbar K551 and is out of the Cudlobe Yellowstone daughter, Cardona Edwina F435. This one was also second at the Winter National Show last month.
Then taking the reserve junior championship was Hamish and Margaret Sclater with Deveron El Passo S550, an April 2016-born son of Deveron Master Banbury L376 out of Deveron Estrella J287, herself a Blackhaugh Easy papa G733 daughter.
