Society Show and Sales 2018

The following are the dates and venues for forthcoming Shetland Sheep Society approved Show and Sales:-


2018 National Show & Sale | Carlisle | 21st - 22nd September 2018

The Show and Sale was a tremendous success, with the auctioneers, Harrison & Hetherington reporting the top price of £500, for the winner of the Best Patterned class, a shearling ram, Wadley Ludovico,  sold by Philip Cowan & Amy Houghton.  Following at £400 was the Coloured Champion, Cronklea Gabe, a shearling ram shown by Lorna Carruthers, and Jupiter of Wester Cockairney, an aged tup shown by Fiona & Archie Hipwell.  Topping the lamb classes at £340 was the Female and Reserve Supreme Breed Champion, Muncaster Isolde, a gimmer lamb from Barry & Julia Watson.

The breed champion went to John Steven’s white ram lamb, that stood best lamb on the day as well. Thanks to our judge, Hazel Syme, who made great time to get her judging completed with some very large classes.  In the craft and fleece classes, judge Ellen Bain chose Cluny Chapman’s entry for a knitted cardigan as her Champion, while fleece judge Paul Crooks  chose a white fleece from Fiona & Archie Hipwell as champion, with a black fleece from Barry & Julia Watson as his reserve. Well done to all the winners.
