Comments: From Veronica Tudor-Williams 1946 book: "Bokoto was very similar to Bongo, only built in finer and more elegant lines, though longer in the back. She was extremely good all over, and one has to be very critical to say that she could have done with more wrinkle and a curlier tail. Her eye was a little full and her colour too light, but these are small faults compared with her perfect conformation and general high quality."
