Showing now underway!

I am so sorry that I have been so bad at blogging this year! No excuse really only the usual one - where do the days go to?? Is it me?

Anyway, enough of that! We are freshly home from the Suffolk Show wielding our rosettes and what a great show we had!  I am so proud of my flock!

Bea my beautiful shearling ewe won Champion Wensleydale Ewe and Reserve Champion Wensleydale overall!

Makes all the hard work worthwhile!


I also won 2nd place for both my white Wensleydale ram in the Wensley class and my black Wensleydale ram entered in the Longwool class (we are not allowed to enter a black Wensleydale in the Wensleydale classes - daft isn't it!)

2nd also for the group of three - my white Wensley ram and two white Wensley ewes.  Another 1st for my black ewe lamb and a couple of fifths!  Not bad eh?

Here is the evidence!

I am so grateful for all the support that I get - my boss always comes over to see me before I start to say good luck!

Finally I just had to include this picture of Geraldine my little ewe lamb.  This was snapped by the Heart Radio photographer and put on their facebook site - she had 57 likes!

Off to the Norfolk next - 27th & 28th June!
