A Busy Summer of Shows!

We’ve had an extremely busy Summer showing our Valais Blacknose sheep, starting in July and finishing just a week ago.

We collected a total of 29 rosettes and retained the Best Longwool Ewe Lamb cup at the Ellingham & Ringwood show and Winnie won 1st place in her class at the Romsey Show for the 2nd year running.  We are absolutely thrilled with our sheep’s performance. 

We also entered our sheep’s fleece in to the wool competitions for the first time this year and were pleased to be placed in the rosettes for all our entries!  

New Forest Valais Blacknose were proud sponsors of the Best Gimmer born Jan 1st – July 31st class at the annual Valais Blacknose Show & Sale in Carlisle this August.  Here we are presenting the prize to a superb quality Gimmer:

The sheep certainly enjoy all the attention at the shows and we loved meeting so many of our followers – old and new!
