Border Collie Club of Vic Champ Show 2013, Ms Robyn Evans (WA)Judge's critique (re-produced in full, without alteration)
"13 months. Masculine male of excellent breed type. Very good size and substance. Pleasing head with dark eye and lovely expression. Good angulation. Very good topline and short hocks. Moves well coming and going with plenty of drive but can sometimes lift in front."

********** ROYAL MELBOURNE SHOW 26/9/13 **********

** Madra gained the final points needed for his Australian Champion title, at just 17 months of age!!!!!!! He remains unbeaten at class level for his show career during 2013 **

Madra is the result of a very determined Zephyr, having his way with a reluctant Shiloh. However, the quality of the litter was such that when it came to part with Madra, I asked his new adopted family if it would be OK if he came to the occasional show with the rest of the Steadfast gang. His family were there to see him at the Royal Melbourne Show and were so impressed with him that they have allowed me to continue to show him. Madra has the most loving family home where he enjoys daily walks on the Torquay beach, meets many new doggy friends there and also accompanies his family in the car on their errands. His Mum Marie, Dad Brian, and children Dylan and Grace love him to bits and the puppy he is today is a credit to the loving way they have raised him. He is obedient and has a great temperment and he fits in so well with my other dogs when he accompanies me on a showing weekend. One Judge has already commented that he looks forward to seeing this boy when he matures...and so do I! I look forward to many fun times with this exuberant and well socialised boy.
