Firstly I would like to thank all exhibitors who travelled far & wide to Crufts to allow me to judte your dogs.  There was an entry o 124 Old English Sheepdog exhibits entred for this first day of Crufts. 
There were so many outstandidng dogs for me to assess and unfortunately many exhibits went unplaced.
Every dog presented was in excellent condition and temperment was superb.  It was lovely to see that the dogs had not been overtrimmed, and my main winners had most definitely not been over trimmed and showed te true beauty of our breeds coat. So nice to see so many exhibits in the open classes.  Overall all movement ws very good.
