Hampshire Downs at the Bath and West Show

The Breed Champion was awarded to H.C. Derryman & Sons of Yarcombe, Honiton, Devon with an untrimmed ram lamb. The Reserve Champion won by H.J.W. Knight & Son from Marshfield, Chippenham, Wiltshire with a pair of ewe lambs. Breed judge, Kevin McCarthy of County Down, Northern Ireland had a keen eye for animals that in addition to all the breed characteristics of good legs, hooves, confirmation and mouth also had a tight wool and length of loin. He also looked for entries that would meet the needs of the commercial market and was not disappointed. Woolley & Wallis have had a longstanding relationship with the Hampshire Down breed; Major Richard Woolley was instrumental in the firm becoming the official auctioneers for the Hampshire Down Breed Association at the all-important Wilton Sheep Fair.
