We have just returned from an extremely wet Royal Highland Show. We have had a very successful visit with Reserve Breed Champion with our Shearling Ewe Hawthorns Poppy, we retained The Reivesley Salver for the Best Lamb which was between Hawthorns Strongbow and Hawthorns Simone, with Strongbow the winner, Best Group of Three with Hawthorns Poppy, Strongbow and Simone. Our Shearling Ram Hawthorns Phineas was Reserve Male Champion. Congratulations to Pat Maddock with her Shearling Ram on taking the Breed Championship
We have had a very successful ten days, following on from a Championship at the Cumberland Show with our 2sh Ram, "Dolwen Nimble", we are absolutely delighted to report that we had Breed Champion at the Three Counties National Ryeland Show with our homebred sh ewe "Hawthorns Poppy" sired by "Bryn Caffo Lordyn" out of "Hawthorns Gillean". The next day at Three Counties is Rare Breed Day and we achieved Reserve Champion with our homebred Sh Ram "Hawthorns Phineas" sired by Ruslin Zebedee and out of a Glenbryn ewe. Three Counties is a fantastic show, I can thoroughly recommend to all and very worth while the 5 hour journey.
