Yorkshire Area and North East Counties English

Summer Stock Show 17th August 2019

Sorry this report has taken so long to surface, but only received my show paperwork recently.

It was quite a journey of two halves, good weather up to Doncaster, and Yorkshire then on. We always use the same Bed & Breakfast at Thirsk, and so were well refreshed for the Show on Saturday.

Both of us were very pleased with such a warm welcome and happy to see so many familiar faces. So, after the usual chats it was down to judging.

We found the Adult and u/5 challenges a bit dysfunctional as it was an any age Show with only five CC`s. However, we thought an entry of 72 was excellent and the quality of stock making the journey well worthwhile. Although, as usual, the eventual outcome differed somewhat, congratulations to all winners on both sides.

The only downside we both noticed was weak tails, one had a break, and headspots. Some could under certain circumstances and at a real stretch be attributed to dirty ear roots.

On a positive note, all CC winners and many others had good colour, strong tails and mainly good spotting and pattern work and were spotlessly clean.

So thanks very much for the invite, a thoroughly enjoyable day, good atmosphere and great canteen.

Thanks to Tookie for keeping the judges well watered during the day.

PS. Sorry I couldn’t congratulate my BIS as I didn’t have the paperwork at the show. Bob Bushell.

London English Young Stock Show 21st July 2019

The London English YSS was, as always, a pleasure to judge. A nice show hall, quality stock and a good gathering of fanciers.
There was a very good selection of stock with the first three blacks of Russell Fenn and Bernard Double and the grey of Stewart and Janet Howson easily capable of changing places. The second grey of Firshill Stud should make up to be a very nice rabbit.
In the Adult Support Show the grey of Stewart and Janet Howson took BIS.
Thank you to Bob Searle on the book and the band of stewards, also the canteen ladies for a very nice lunch.

Midland English Young Stock Show 16th June 2019

A pleasure to be asked by the Midland Committee to judge their YSS .
These combined shows, in this case incorporating Stock Shows for the Midland Dutch and British Belgian Hare clubs as well as the Midland English YSS, Adult Support Show and Spring Show, definitely work to the benefit of regional Clubs, pooling admin and resources as well as exhibitors/helpers to erect/dismantle the show and stewards.
A reasonable entry of youngsters with my best today being the Black of Bernard Double.
