Initial Royal Welsh sheep results

Sheep judging has been progressing well too at the Royal Welsh this morning and I managed to spend a little time there too in between the beef judging.

In the Hampshire Down classes Devon-based Jean Ritchie had the task of selecting the winners and found her champion in the form of John Davies shearling ewe, while Mr Davies also took the reserve spot with his reserve female champion, the ewe lamb.

In the Border Leicesters it was a win for the Evans family with their shearling ewe in Mr Evans’ 48th year showing at the Royal Welsh, with the reserve award going to R D and J M Philips’ powerful old ram.
