Re: Ty herding movent pics
You asked me to compare Bodo to your dog in movement:
Bodo v. Lierberg
In the first photo your dog looks rather balanced though I would like to see more reach.
In the second moving photo, when your dog is fully extended, the front leg is lifting to compensate for the amount of drive (due to his angulation) he has from the back. The shoulder also isn't as able to open up and he has to lift from the elbow to compensate. Thus he shows that he isn't as balanced as it first appears in the top photo.
I do like how he maintains a level topline when moving and love the very top natural stacked photo. He is also one of the better moving dogs I have seen posted here.
Hope that makes sense. Always hard to put into words what I am seeing.
