Similar events will be held in February and August next year so if you fancy joining in watch this space!

I’ve posted below some photos of the day and these is a video of the whole course on YouTube if you follow this link

It’s Show Time!

Some of you will know at this time of the year David takes the prize specimens of his sheep around the best of the agricultural shows to compete against other breeders. So far we’ve been to the Staffordshire and Kenilworth shows.

At Staffordshire we had the Reserve champion Ram with one of our Dorsets and won the ‘Best 3’ class with the Charmoise. We did equally well at Kenilworth and have the Ian Litchfield Trophy on display for the best pen of 3 lambs.

The big shows – Three Counties, Great Yorkshire – are yet to come so keep watching for the results.
