"Well broken head" ???
« on: October 15, 2008, 09:53:24 AM »
Anyone ever heard of a boxer having a "well broken head"?

It is not a phrase I am familiar with, and the other day whilst browsing through some boxer sites I came across a quote from a judge (who is actually a UK breeder) and he had referred to the dog having a well broken head. Hmmmmm.......I can't imagine what this might refer to. Any ideas?

A long time breeder of boxers once explained "broken over" to me as how the muzzle breaks over into the skull. Not sure if this helps without seeing it illustrated in person (or even if it's the same thing).
