Entries in Moreton in Marsh Show (3)



National Ryeland Cham;pion 2016We had a good day showing the Ryelands at Moreton Show on Saturday 7th September.  Steve and I took along a team of 6 ryelands.  

The team consisted of 2 rams - Widgits Xemplar and Oakberrow Yahoo who were 1st and 2nd in the Ram class.  The handsome Xemplar was awarded Breed Champon by judge Stephen Unwin.  In the ram lamb class we showed Oakberrow Zodiac and delighted that he won this class.  Zodiac went from the show to his new home with Katie James.  

Our beautiful breeding ewe - V31 - won the breeding ewe.  She was the Ryeland National Champion in 2016, that is her on the photo.  Then our shearling ewe who is sired by Cagedale Windfall won a strong shearling class and our baby ewe lamb was 2nd in a strong class.

Next show will be the Hereford and Marches Regional Ryeland Lamb show which is held in conjunction with the Malvern Autumn Show.  We have gone mad and entered 10 lambs between Ryelands and Coloureds.

Judges are John and Suzanne Donovan on Saturday and Sally Lloyd for Sunday judging the pairs classes.



Super September  

Breeze at 13 months brains as well as beautyOakberrow had an amazing time in the show ring for both the sheep and the dogs.  Our goregous little girl Breeze won Best Bitch at the HWVA Breed Open show held at Stoneleigh, under gundog specialist judge David Shields.

And not to be outdone by her success our handsome Ryeland ram Noble won the Sheep Inter Breed Championship at Moreton in Marsh Show, all the years I have been showing sheep I have never been fortunate enough to be awarded such an accolade.
