The show season started at The Royal Welsh Spring Festival in May, our aged ram Hawthorns Phineas gained a first place in his class, our two yearling rams, Hawthorns Tuilagi and Hawthorns Talisman were 1st and 2nd in their class. Our yearling ewe Hawthorns Tara was 2nd in her class. Phineas went on to become Champion with Tuilagi in reserve. Our next stop was The Royal Three Counties, unfortunately, it clashed with our local show, The Cumberland County, but luckily our friends the Bewley family and in particular Charlotte saved the day and exhibited our sheep, gaining Champion with Hawthorns Talisman. Then onto The Great Yorkshire were Tuilagi was made champion followed by trips to The Royal Welsh, Dumfries and another championship for Phineas, gained at Anglesey County Show.
A fabulous year for the Hawthorns Flock.
