Great Yorkshire Show - 2013

Glenside girl on form at Great Yorkshire Show

Championship honours in the Texel classes at the Great Yorkshire Show went the way of John Forsyth's Glenside flock, with top honours falling to a two crop ewe from his Maybole, Ayrshire-based flock.

First prize aged ewe, female and overall champion was John Forsyth's ewe

This ewe, FPG 1000038, a daughter of 33,000gns sire Muiresk Blondin is out of a dam by Castlecairn Keltic Star and had been reserve female and reserve breed champion at last month's Royal Highland show.

She is a full sister to Mr Forsyth's double Highland interbreed winning ewe FPG 1000017, which stood ahead of her at the Highland this year.

First prize shearling ewe, reserve female and reserve overall champion
was D and J Chambers' shearling ewe

Lifting the reserve female and reserve overall championship honours was a shearing ewe from the Twelve Oaks flock of David Chambers, Northamptonshire. This was CTO 1200201, a daughter of 12,000gns tup Carran Sutherland's Star and is out of a homebred dam by Hexel Overnight Celebrity and goes back on her dam's side to a Kingsland ewe. This ewe was previously breed champion at Suffolk Show in May this year.
