Blacknose Beauties

What a weekend we had. Nine of the Swiss Society came over to grade and judge our sheep.  On Friday night we also had a BBQ and the Swiss told us all we needed to know about how they grade each sheep.  We came back with a much greater knowledge about what to look for in a good in a Valais Blacknose Sheep.

We had great fun at the show, Bramble came 3rd and Betty 4th in the over 3 yr old ewe class and Donato came 5th in a large class of tup lambs.  The children also loved it as got 2nd and 5th (joint last!) rosettes for Young Handlers.

We then sold Doris, Daffodil and Didier at the auction to lovely new homes in Derbyshire and Cheshire.

Can't wait until next year now!
