It wasn’t an easy task for sheep judge Granville Colegrave, Perthshire with more than 100 entries forward. But it was a pair of Beltex lambs that took the winning trophy for Andrew and Becky Bishop, Gloucestershire. This pair was overall champion of the Continental/Down lambs class here today and also won supreme title at Countryside Live last week and are both by the same sire.
In reserve was 15 year old Hannah Brown, Bedale with her pair of Beltex crosses. She also won Young Handler Class at Countryside Live last week.
Taking the champion hill breed title was Claire and Ian Huddleston, Allendale with their pure Swaledales. Both are by the same tub and are all homebred. In reserve was Andrew Baillie with a pair of Blackface lambs.
