Eggleston Show

If you have Wensleydale sheep and are into showing, or interested in getting involved, then do consider Eggleston Show in 2014. It has Wensleydale breed classes in a traditional agricultural show just outside Barnard Castle set in a lovely showground held towards the end of September. It really is worth a trip out and it would be lovely to see some more Wensleydales there in 2014 otherwise our dedicated breed classes are in jeopardy through lack of support.
