FCGD Long Hollow Judge MH
Judge came to me to run in 2 Couple Pack Hunt test when he was under 2 years old. I've been truly blessed to handle and eventually purchase many dogs from Long Hollow Kennel. In my opinion the man behind the breeding of most of the hounds in my kennel is the best breeder of my time. I say that because of the impact of his hounds in both GDB and in 2CP. The first time I watched Judge I could tell he was something special, he would sit behind you as long as you were moving forward showing great patience and concentration on the rabbit track and not over competitive focusing on his brace or pack mates. If you bobbled with the line Judge had the ability to go right through you as if the line was painted in the ground for him. Judge finished fairly quickly in 2 Couple Pack for his Master Hunter title and then went on to compete in Appalachian GDB where he instantly got peoples attention by winning several trials in a row. Judge finished with 9 wins due to running in several trials that didn't have large entries however he also won several trials with entries of over 20. Judges Sire was Long Hollow Dozer MH and in my opinion Dozer was the finest male I had the pleasure of owning and trialing. I want to give my dear friend Gary Bardo from PA a lot of the credit for getting judge finished as a FC as he and I co owned judge during this time and he conditioned him and took him to multiple trials. I'll post a pedigree on Judge and explain the meticulous planned breeding that resulted in this fine male.
