The champion in the Blue Faced leicester progeny show held at the Penrith Show went to MC Robinson, West Cocklaw, Northumberland, with 3 ewes all sired by the Pennine L1
A big turnout at the Penrith Show saw some great classes judged by R Carter and M Roberts, who had to decide winners from some very strong classes, such as the ram lamb class which had 14 entries forward, in which R Archer & son eventually took first and second with lambs sired by different rams, the first place being sired by the Ravenscar, and the other by the days Male Champion and Reserve overall, Cocklaw T1, which is shared with MC Robinson.

In the female section all eyes were on the Yorkshire supreme Champion, Cocklaw Sparky, by the Pennine L1 and she didn't disappoint, holding onto her title from the previous year, and the going on one step further in the interbreed championship, judged by Hawes auctioneer, John Cloughton, and took the supreme title. This title added to a growing array of championships won by this tremendous 4 crop ewe, including the supreme Highland Champion 2004 as well as numerous breed and interbreed championships at other shows.

It was a good day for the Robinson family as their T1 tup, shared with R Archer & son also took the male title, making it a top 1 - 2 for the family, and more success was to follow in the progeny classes, as the Robinsons claimed the overall progeny title too, with a group of 3 ewes by the same sire, all sired by the L1 Pennine, which is proving to be a great, consistent breeder.

Pipped at the post in the progeny classes was Glenn Shapiro and her Hazelwood flock. They had beaten off some strong competition and won all the other progeny classes, 3 ram lambs by same sire, 3 gimmer lambs by same sire and 3 gimmer shearlings by same sire, all amazingly were sired by the same ram, Barlaes T5, a 3 shear which Glen bought for £1600 out of Castle Douglas as a lamb, and is leaving some great stock sheep and setting a standard for the flock to follow.

In the Mule progeny ring, last years record price ram was setting tongues wagging as Alan Barnes swept all before him with lambs sired by the Howgill Grange W1 £23,000 ram. These smart, sharp coloured lambs took the first two places in the single class, and won the pairs class too, before going on to win best Mule lambs by one sire. Penrith Progeny Show
