Kilnsey Show 2023
The Sun certainly came out and shone on the beautiful Dales show of Kilnsey. After a drizzly start the heat certainly built up in and outside the show ring. The Mule classes were in the capable hands of local Breeder Kevin Wilson and Peter Fox who is part of the Fox Farm team based near Clitheroe who have made a very successful business out of buying Gimmer Lambs and reselling them as either Shearlings and one crops. They have already picked up awards this year form NWA J36 and Bentham with their 2 shear ewes.
