Royal Highland Show – Crossing Type

23rd - 26th June 2022

Edinburgh

Mr Alec Brown, Macqueston

Under the watchful eye of judge Alec Brown, Macqueston, and a clear blue sky, a cracking entry of crossing type sheep were assessed and accordingly placed. With some very strong classes it wasn’t an easy job to sort out, but when the judging was all done and dusted it was a familiar face at the top of the tree again, as Midlock proved yet again to be the team to beat. Their champion was a stonking gimmer, which just oozed class. She is the full sister to the £40,000 “Commander” lamb sold last autumn at Hawes, by the M1 Riddings and out of the flocks top breeding ewe Midlock L27. Midlock also took the reserve female championship with an aged ewe by the K1 Shafthill out of an E1 Barfhouse.

Winning the male championship and going on to take the male championship was a smart tup lamb from Alan McQuistion, Barnshangan. This cocky lamb was full of power and a lovely colour, and again full of Midlock bloodlines. He was sired by the legendry G34 Midlock and out of a ewe by the J14 Blarnavaid, a son of Highberries Hotshot. Its full sister took the gimmer lamb class too, to complete a great double for these lambs. The reserve male champion was a corking home bred tup shearling from the Beeches flock from Finlay Roberston, by the L22 Blarnavaid and out of a ewe by the B41 Hewgill which has done so well for the flock. He will be heading to Kelso later this year to find a fresh home!

The group of 3 prize went to the Thornborrow family of the Dawyck flock, who were there or thereabouts in all the classes they showed in.
