Blacknose Beauties 2019
August 22, 2019 - August 24, 2019
Location : Harrison & Hetherington Borderway Mart, Rosehill, Carlisle, CA1 2RS
With membership reaching over 100 breeders, this year’s Blacknose Beauties show and sale at H&H Borderway Mart, Carlisle on 23-24 August, held by the Valais Sheep Society, promises to be the largest celebration of the UK’s fastest growing sheep breed.
Having established as a Society in 2014, by Jenni McAllister, Raymond Irvine and Jamie Wood, the breed has gone from strength to strength, and this year’s Show is expecting to see over 200 animals on display, resulting in the largest number of entries in the show’s history to date. This includes the return of last year’s Supreme Champion, Highland Eric, and some of his offspring from Raymond Irvine and Jenni McAllister.
Over the course of the two days, attendees can participate in needle felting workshops and learn to make their own Valais Blacknose Sheep, enjoy the many trade stalls on offer and have a selfie with ‘Elfie’ star of BBC 2 This Farming Life program. Additionally, a public BBQ will be hosted on Friday, 23 August at 7pm.
