Our flock came up trumps again at the New Forest Show in July 2019, winning a serious of prizes across multiple mixed breed classes:
Our ewe lamb "New Forest Gabby" took 5th place in her large ewe lamb class, "New Forest Francis" took 5th place in two classes: Longwool Wool on the Hoof and the Shearling Ram class. Finally, our Group of Three won 3rd place in another large mixed breed class.
We were delighted with these results - the breed is so rare and we're still the only Valais Blacknose sheep entered into this Show so it's always great to win recognition of the quality of our stock, particularly when you're up against popular native meat breeds (often the polar opposite to the Valais Blacknose breed!).
