We took three of our VBN lambs, Maud, Winnie & Remus, together with one of our Shetland lambs, Flora (for moral support!), to the Ellingham Show on 13th August. We were absolutely delighted to come away with 1st in the Longwool Ewe Lamb class with Winnie, as well as 2nd in the Longwool Groups of 3 class with Maud, Winnie & Remus! We were invited to take part in the Grand Parade in the main ring in the afternoon, together with the other best in show livestock which was great fun.
It was a fantastic day and the lambs took all the attention in their stride, enjoying being stroked and admired by the visitors. We also saw some familiar faces from the New Forest Show who had come back to see the lambs again – they’re gaining quite a local following!
We can’t wait for the next, and sadly last, of our Summer shows, Romsey Show on 10th September (details below) – we hope to see you there!
