Meet the new girl to the house - four generations

4 generations Tia Great Gran 15 years old to MorayGerman shorthaired Pointers have been part of my life for over 35 years and the Oakberrow GSPs are known for their beauty and brains.  Foster - Show Champion Oakberrow Wotzinaname - is 7 years old and the last of my line.  Earlier in the year I had an email from the lovely Stephanie Jackman asking if I had any pups which were related to Sh Ch Jennaline Herr-baceous of Oakberrow - Herbie, as her Herbie son Gunnel was getting old and as he had such lovely temperament and a great dog would like similar lines.  I had to say to Stephanie no but there was Foster.  So one thing led to another and In July Rosie and Foster got together and a gorgeous litter was born in September.

We have four generations as Moray has come to live at Oakberrow.  She is 12 weeks and a girl with character.  Stephanie has HP who is a very handsome boy.

Ryeland sheep and Greyface Dartmoor sheep wins so far

ryeland lamb and greyface dartmoor ewe and lambWe have had a good start to the showing season this year with the sheep.  At the RWAS Smallholders show in May Oakberrow Thunder and Untouchable were both third.  With the Greyface Dartmoors - our lovely Sunny was second in a strong class of rams and also Ulysses was second as well.  The breeding ewe - Antonia was a credible 4th.

At Shropshire County Show - Oakberrow Thunder was Breed champion with our shearling ewe being Reserve Breed Champion under judge Pam Bateman.

The Greyface Dartmoors under top judge John Osborne from Cornwall, our Ulysses won the any aged ram class and Agatha our ewe lamb also won her class.  The shearling ewe was 3rd in her class.

At the Royal Three Counties Show - the Dartmoors did well with Sunny winning Breed Champion.  He won the any aged ram class with his son Ulysses taking up the 2nd spot.  Our baby ram lamb (still to be named) won the ram lamb class and Agatha won the Ewe lamb class.  So a great day.
