Devon County Show - 2011

Devon Show

The sun shining, the highest entries of Texels ever plus the attendance of the Society Chairman, Gordon Gray and Vice Chairman, Nick Tavernor, were all the ingredients needed for an excellent Devon County Show.

Robert Cartledge, our judge, had his work cut out with 20 plus entries in most classes. But with his mind on the job (and refreshments supplied by John). His conclusion of the day was great news for the Loosebeare Flock who very nearly swept the board had it not been for the Peacehay Flock winning the shearling ram class (CFP1000174).

Breed champion and reserve, male and female champions and reserves all went to the Loosebeare Flock. The breed champion, a shearling ewe (QEL1000140), then going on to take interbreed of the whole show, second year in a row for the Quick family, congratulations. Further Texel class results are below.

Thanks to a few of our stalwart committee members an informal sandwich and cake lunch was provided to all which was gratefully received thank you. Whilst enjoying lunch a local commercial buyer commented to me he would be more than happy to take any of the sheep in the line up home (ram class)! A great positive for all competitors showing and the Texel breed.
