A farm in Mid Wales recently travelled to Ingliston, near Edinburgh in Scotland to showcase their Dutch Spotted Sheep in the Royal Highland Show.

Farmer from Llanbister, Robbie Almand-Wilson made the long trip to the Show for the farm’s first appearance there.

All of Robbie’s female sheep were in the top line-up and they won the reserve female champion and first placed yearling, with their homebred, Cnwch Gin Campari, sired by Cnwch Emilio, with her full sister gaining fifth. 

They went onto win the best group of three with two lambs and the yearling and also placed second in the ewe lamb class with Cnwch HD crème De La crème and fifth with Cnwch Harlequins Tigerlily.

Speaking about their very first experience at the Royal Highland Show, Robbie Alman-Wilson from Llanbister said: “It was great to go all that way and come away with something. We’re very pleased. You hope if you’re going to go up there all that way to get a rosette would be good but to do that was even better.” 

The Royal Highland Show is the largest agricultural show in Scotland and is an annual event showcasing the best food, drink, and rural life. This year’s show took place from Thursday, June 20, to Sunday, June 23.
