2018 Show Success!

We had to reduce the number of shows we did this year due to Abby having had a baby in July.  Although we only made it to one show, the Ellingham & Ringwood Show in August, we were delighted with the results, winning 11 rosettes, retaining the Best Longwool Ewe Lamb cup for a third consecutive year, as well as winning Reserve Champion with our Ewe!

It's always very pleasing to win rosettes when in mixed classes, against popular native breeds, especially when the Valais Blacknose breed is still so unknown by many of the judges.  

The prizes included 1st & 2nd in the Longwool Ewe class; 1st in the Longwool Ewe Lamb class; 1st, 2nd & 3rd in the Longwool Ram Lamb class, 3rd in the Longwool Ram class; 1st & 3rd in the Longwool Groups of 3; 1st in the Older Ewe to have Borne a Lamb this Season; and Longwool Reserve Champion with our Ewe "New Forest Edith".
