The ewe is a daughter of a ewe gifted by the Inman’s to their grandson Tom on his birth three years ago and is by a Santon sire and out of a ewe by Solwaybank Ranger. She previously stood breed champion at last week’s Leicester Show.

Standing reserve to the Suffolk was the Charollais champion a ewe lamb from Percy Tait. This one is homebred and by Dogtanion a tup bought from Debbie Marwood.

Jennifer Atkinson and David Smith’s team of three Hampshire Downs took the interbreed group award, with Mr Tait again taking second spot with the Charollais.
