THE HORSE POINTS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 24 January 1914
THE HORSE POINITS FOR JUDGES EXPERT ADVICE. At the Kybybolite Branch of the South Australian Agriculture Bureau MIr W. J, Colebatch, Bc., Agric,. M.R.C.V.BS. (Superintendent of Agrlcul twuro in the South-East), gave a prac tical demonstration on the points of a horse. Most farmers, he said, posseoii a fair kInowledge of the general charac teriostlcs to be looked for in a horse of good quality,but few would care to un doertakeo the responsibilities of show-ring judging, or to officiate in any capacity in which their knowledge of the points of a l.orse would be brought und3r the searchlight of public criticisum. This may be due to natural reluctance to publlclty or to a want of confidence, which may be attributed in sonime cases to a want of method or system in :he p'ocess of judging.

Once adopted, thei methond...
