New Forest Valais Blacknose at the New Forest Show!

We were extremely excited about our first show with our NFVBN lambs this year.  Maud and Winnie were washed and pampered the day before, ready for their debut.  Far from being scared of the process, they were their usual docile selves, seemingly enjoying the shampoo & blow dry...!  Oh, if only our dogs were as easy to clean!!


Our lambs were the only VBNs at the show and caused quite a stir, with many people crowding around our pen having never seen the breed before.  The girls were incredibly well behaved and enjoyed meeting lots of new people and sheep of all shapes and sizes during the day.  

They performed really well in the ring during their two classes, despite it being their first time.  We were also lucky enough to be included in the Grand Parade in the main ring in the afternoon, which they took in their stride, posing for photos from onlooking admirers and even the press!  Although we weren't lucky enough to win anything on the day, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to our next show, Ellingham Show on 13th August (see below for more info) - we hope to see you there!
