Mid Devon Show

THE WEATHER WAS BRILLIANT FOR THE MID DEVON SHOW,WE ARRIVED IN PLENTY OF TIME SO NOT TO MUCH STRESS.
SO MANY BEAUTIFUL SHETLANDS THE QUALITY IMPROVES EVERY YEAR WITH BIG CLASSES AND MORE BREEDERS.
HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO CHRISTINA WHO TOOK THE CHAMPIONSHIP WITH A GEORGOUS BLACK SHEARLING WHO REALLY DESERVED TO WIN.
WE GOT A FIFTH AND A THIRD, FIRST FOR WOOL ON THE HOOF.
AND OUR FLEECE CAME FIRST AND THEN WENT RESERVE CHAMPION SO IN ALL WE HAD A GOOD DAY,THE ONLY BLIP ON THE DAY WAS ARE FRIENDS COULDN'T MAKE IT WHICH WAS SUCH A SHAME.

Next in this years diary

.Less than a week and we will be showing at the mid Devon show .Three lambs need training and the rest need a little work,(or should I say a lot of work)
The weather is against us once again the fields are muddy and the grass which is growing well is having an adverse effect on a few lambs,and they really don't like their ends washed.
Mind you I don't like the job either and for some reason I always get the short straw.I think Jodie should get this job.
Tomorrow a job I really dislike a couple of shearlings have got to go down the line,this is something I don't like and I don't seem to get used to it.

Liskeard Show

ShareThe weather was good to us this year at the liskeard show,with big classes and some quality sheep.First up was the ram class with Jodie taking in Furzehill Dillon as usual Jodie did a brilliant job and got a well deserved third place.All the classes were well supported and we had some brilliant support from friends.
Two good friends came along to help show , Ann who had helped train lambs took sheep into the ring for the first time and did a really good job ,I hope she enjoyed it as much as I did.
