Belding, Michigan Breed Show Results (April 17, 2021)
This may have been our Chapter's largest Breed Show to date. A total of SEVENTEEN Draths and handlers came from far and wide to be evaluated. We had terrific weather and a beautiful venue. The day started out cool and clear, then continued to warm up until it go down right hot in the sun.
The judging took place at Prairie Bells Barn. The property is adjacent to Scott Broiser's Big Prairie Preserve where we also had a VJP taking place that day. The parking lot was full.
Prairie Bell's Barn included a large concrete pad in the backyard which served as a perfect evaluation area for the Breed Show judges. Chairs and benches surrounded the concrete pad creating a natural spectator viewing area. We even had a nearby field where we could let the dogs run for the judges.
A long day for the judges
We'd like to especially thank judges Rhonda Feazel, James Strilich, Mike Schell and apprentice judge Johnathan Pearson. The judging group took the time to explain how they scored each dog to the audience and answer all questions. They literally worked from sun up to sun down judging dogs. At one point we got worried as they'd been in the hot sun on that baking concrete pad without a break for over 10 hours. They ate their lunches standing up and it was nightfall before they had a chance to wolf down their dinner (top-notch catered BBQ!) while completing the final paperwork. Most had a long drive home in the late hours that event. It's dedicated volunteers like this make our organization so great.
