Elegance and power... this is Zion!
Zion traveled down to the the AKC weekend at Spruce Meadows. There was a strong Borzoi entry, and Zion was recognized by two of North America's most respected judges: Michael Hill, and Eugene Blake. He's shown here, in his summer speedos, in the group ring.

Zion at 14 months:
Pictured here at 14 months old, we are beginning to glimpse signs of the future stallion this young man will become. He is elegant, with strong structure and muscles rippling underneath that plush coat.
Zion is approximately 94 lbs, and 31.5 inches at the shoulder. He has a strong "chase" instinct, so we look forward to getting him out to the coursing field.
Zion has full dentition, scissors bite. He is DM CLEAR, eyes CLEAR.
Zion at 6 months:
Pictured here at 6mths of age, Zion has his sire's dark eyes and long tail, long neck, powerful body. His first weekend out at 6mths of age he earned a 2pt BOW - as the youngest entry.
