There were 186 Pedigree Texels competing in blistering sunshine at Gorey Show last Saturday for the 2017 national title.

Judge Anna Minnice-Hughes eventually selected the ram lamb UVI1701309 as her supreme champion. Sired by Tophill Wallstreet and out of a Straghbogie Python bred dam who was herself a first prize winnner at the 2013 national championships, the young ram was bred by John Neville of Thornville Texels.
