    Gary, Texels are on tomorrow, not today, so no news yet I’m afraid. Texel Breeder the Suffolk champion was a shearling tup from Myfyr Evans.

    Thanks a lot, not surprised by Myfyr’s win, a tremendous Suffolk shearling.
    He’s also got with him last years Texel First Prize Shearling Ram which also won Reserve Male Champion { Knock Overton }at the Highland.In the last twelve months this ram has developed into something special – hence the reason for my enquiry.
    Jonathan, thanks for your response, look forward to tomorrow.
