Shows in the South West of England

Agatha Jones, Okehampton

Agatha Jones - Okehampton

Once again the show season in the South West has featured Llanwenogs with some notable successes. Agatha Jones (Neadon Flock 448), on what was a very wet Sunday at the Totnes Show, had a 2nd in the ewe lamb & a 3rd in the shearling ewe classes in the Any Other Pure Breed section. On yet another wet day at the Okehampton Show she was again in the prizes in the Rare, Minority & Primitive Breeds section with 1st & 4th for old ewes, 3rd & 4th for shearling ewes, 4th for a ewe lamb & 2nd in the group of three. She certainly laid on a fine display of Llanwenogs!

The breed's well known "ease of handling" was amply demonstrated at the Okehampton & Chagford shows when Ella Jones entered the Young Handlers classes for the first time with a ewe from the Blackhall Flock (380). Although unplaced at both shows she handled the ewe well & was certainly pleased to get rosettes along with all the other youngsters.

We were all delighted when Huw's ewe lamb went on to win Best in Group (Hill and Heath) earning a place in the interbreed line up.

There was further success in the fleece (Hill and Heath) class which was won by Jill Bennett with Alison Ayling 2nd.

Three Counties 15 - Show stand

Best breed stand!

This year we also entered the show stand for judging and were delighted to have it judged the best breed promotion stand. The judges were very enthusiastic about the way we are looking to the future of the breed and what the Llanwenog can do. It was a great result and encouraging to realise that we are on the right track with our breed promotion efforts. A number of people stopped to chat and it was amazing how many people knew people who have Llanwenogs. Our thanks to those who manned the stand throughout the day.


RWAS Spring Festival 2015

Parcyrhos Seniror Ram Champ 2015

Senior Ram Champion

There were five exhibitors competing in the Llanwenog classes at the RWAS Spring Festival on 17 May. The judge, Ernie Lewis (Lonarth Flock), awarded the championship to Gareth and Wendy Evans’ senior ram with Huw and Lynwen Jenkins’ senior ram in reserve.
The Society’s stand occupied a prominent position attracting a number of useful enquiries. Andrew Jones (Felindre) and Huw & Lynwen Jenkins (Gwynfaen) kindly loaned a ram and a ewe with twin lambs for display.
