Royal Highland Show ’22 – Sheep Champions
The Charollais champion triumphed over an impressive line-up of 28 breed winners in the sheep section at the Royal Highland.
Best overall was the gimmer, Loaningfoot Wa Wa Wee, from Ben Radley, Dumfries. This was the first show outing for the home-bred gimmer, a daughter of Logie Durno Ultimatum.
Taking reserve was the Dutch Spotted winner, on the breed’s debut at the show. That was Tip Top Diana, a one-crop ewe from Ali Jackson and Hannah Sloan’s flock at Cummertrees, Annan. The ewe is by Tip Top Charlie and out of an imported ewe.
Standing third in the final line-up, was the traditional Bluefaced Leicester, a shearling ram from Alan McClymont, Kirkstead, Yarrow. He was bred at Bonvilston and bought at Kelso Ram Sales.
The Dutch Spotted breed had further success, picking up the inter-breed pairs title, with both coming from Ali Jackson and Hannah Sloan. Standing reserve were the Blackface duo from Milnmark.
