Balko’s critique from Rheinhardt Meyer at the Sieger show in Aachen 08. “Balko is big, strong and substantial, with a high wither, straight back and a long slightly steep croup. Very good hind anglulation with powerful thighs and firm hocks. The upperarm should be rather better angled, the brisket proportions are balanced The front is correct. Moving soundly in front and behind he demonstrates effective hindthrust and free front reach. HD fast normal, DNA, ED normal, HD Zuchtwert: 96.
