« OAKBERROW VINNIE COLOURED RYELAND RAM FOR SALE | Main | Greyface Dartmoor champion at Shropshire County Show »


National Ryeland Champion 2016The Ryeland Flock Book Society stage their National Show in conjunction with Tenbury Show, which was held yesterday 6 August 2016.  The entries were record breaking with 96 ryelands entered and there were 130 coloured ryelands entered, so a great task for the judges.

I am delighted to say that Oakberrow Ryelands won the Champion Ryeland with a home-bred shearling ewe.  Steve showed her and I was ringside watching the championships and I have to say a great cheer and then some tears when Judge David Lewis of the famous Arbeth Ryelands awarded her Champion.

We also won Best Woolled Sheep in Show under judge Mike Yeandle with our shearling ram who was 6th in his class in the National Show and first in the Ryeland Wool on the Hoof.

Our baby ram lamb Winston was 5th, our breeding ewe was 3rd, we were 5th in the group of three. 

Thanks to everyone for their congratulations and support and also to my beloved ryelands for making it a day to remember.
