"Layla aka Tamarbern Duky Maiden has kept the Bernese flag flying again by going Best of
Breed and then AV Working Open, then shortlisted last 6 in the Group under Gina Bowers
(Marchlands) at very wet Devon County Show.

"Then at a very long, hot day at Bath was placed 2nd out of 31 entries in Good Citizen
Stakes under Rodney Oldham . So proud of my gorgeous girl and treasure each moment
spent with her especially as we have had so many sad losses of young Bernese lately."
