We were invited by Brymore Academy to visit the school and give the boys a demonstration on trimming Closewool sheep for the show ring. Raymond Kingdon kindly agreed to impart his knowledge and together with Jean Kingdon, Matthew and Esther Bray we spent a lovely afternoon at this amazing school. What fantastic work they are doing giving boys the opportunity to learn about farming, and horticulture as well as many other practical and academic subjects and sports in a relaxed, calm, kind environment. Fabulous! ...

Congratulations to Gail Sprake who took a number of her Closewools to Suffolk County Show last week in the Any Other Native Breed classes and won the Shearling Ram class and also took Male Champion! These were large classes of a variety of breeds including Border Leicesters, Lleyns, Boreays and Bluefaced Leicesters. Gail also achieved 2nd prizes with her shearling ewe, ram lamb and ewe lamb so proving that the Devon Closewool can hold it's own against the other breeds πŸ‘πŸ†πŸ₯‡πŸ‘ Well done Gail and good luck at Royal Norfolk at the end of the month. ...

They just missed out in the Championship to two very showy Clun Forests but what an amazing achievement to be placed in such hot company never mind to win two classes!
