Judge Mrs G Webb-Bailey I was very honoured to be asked to judge the British Giants at this premier show. The last time was in 1995 when I stepped in to judge them in place of my father who was very ill. congradulations to Sue who tabled some fine exhibits, with some good youngsters who will be heard of next year. Stock was of a very high quality although quite a bit of moult which affected the placings. Thanks to my stewards, Lesley, Sue, ricky, Gordon, Stuart and to Eleanor who did a great job on the book.

Held at Luton on 31st October & 1st november 2003 - Judge J Drury Total Exhibits 5
Best In Section Mrs S Percival. Many thanks to the NBGRA for allowing me to judge, a pity about several exhibits absent. Moult was a big problem. Perhaps some will read the breed standard and most important please check the rings. I withheld one CC due to the ring being too tight, I couldn't turn it. Thanks to Jim & Jenny everything in apple pie order and thanks to the stewards and Petra for a wonderful job as book steward.
BR GREY AD 2: 1st Dumpling Stud 03-H-00864. Very light in colour needs a moult.
WHITE AD 1: 1st Dumpling Stud 03-H-00871. Didn't comply with the breed standard. CC witheld. Ring too tight.

NATIONAL BRITISH GIANT ASS Held at Linc Championship Show
Judge J Hodgkiss. Best In Show Mrs S A Dooley's Steel Buck
A priviledge to judge another British Giant Stock Show, although rabbits and fanciers were a little thin on the ground compared with previous years. Some nice, if not outstanding adults on view, although I feel that the Brown-Grey and Steels are being interbred to the detriment of both colours. Although not allowed to compete with the adults today, the best of the youngsters today would have given the winner a very good run for its money. If it makes the weight as an adult, it would be one which Kirty would have been proud of.
White Buck or Doe 2: 1st Mrs S A Dooley 03-H-00054 CC. Nice shape, if not the ultimate in size, Ears out of proportion. Good colour and quite a nice coat. Just a bit to finish. 2nd R Gutteridge. Good colour and coat, but narrow in body.
Brown-Grey Buck 3: 1st Mrs S A Dooley 03-H-03727. no problem with size, just a little to course in coat and bone structure. Bit too dark in colour, but ideal stud buck. 2nd Normel Stud, better colour and good coat, but narrow in body. 3rd Normel Stud
Brown-Grey Doe 3: Normel Stud 03-H-00705 Wins on type and size. Good coat, but very dark in colour.
Steel Buck or Doe 6: Mrs S A Dooley CC Best In Show. Very good size. Just a little Continental in type but not too much so. A little to finish coat, but very dense. Good colour. 2nd Normel Stud Just beaten coat and colour. 3rd Waggledance Stud.
