Our last show of the year, Tullow Show, was a resounding success for us. We had the first prize ram, ewe, ram lamb and ewe lamb (see photo above), and won the Championship with our ewe, Hazel, and the Reserve Championship with our ram, Dun-Mor Yogi Bear. Clive Richardson travelled over from Cumbria in the UK to judge for us and we really appreciate him travelling over. I have put some pictures of the show in the 'Pictures' section.
The rams have gone out with the ewes now, and we are using Stonecroft Thomas, Stonecroft Clive and Dun-Mor Yogi Bear this year. Next weekend the bi-annual flock competition will take place and Barbara and Linda McKendrick will travel over from Scotland to judge flocks all over Ireland. It's a great way to get advice on the flocks from two very experienced judges and we are looking forward to it. The annual JSS Show and Sale will take place on Saturday 27th September at Blessington Mart, Co. Wicklow, and I have put some pictures of the ewe lambs we have entered in the 'Sheep for Sale' section.
