when I first did the quiz myself we had 1 and a half hours at a club meeting and only got twenty right must admit not easy which is why I gave as much time as you needed just about but like I said at the beginning it was just a bit of fun to have a think while the breeding was going which I hope everyone is having a good year this year.
