THE judges had their work cut out at Saturday’s Roberton Show, with the four classes of breeding sheep proving difficult to separate. The winners in each section were: Blackface – R. and M. McIntosh, Outer Huntly, with a ewe. Hill Cheviot – A. Warden, Skelfhill, with a dinmont. Hill Cheviot (untouched) – A. Stewart, Tushielaw, with a ewe lamb. Any other breed – R. Jamieson, Skelfhill, with a Cheviot Mule Gimmer.

After much deliberation, overall judge Forrest Irving chose the Hill Cheviot Dinmont from Alistair Warden, Skelfhill, as the best breeding sheep in show.

The vegetable and flower sections were outstanding and the top prize winner was W. R. Wilson, Craik. The flower trophies were won by G. Moyes. Shona Morison, showing for the first time at Roberton, took custody of the baking trophy.

Knitting and sewing entries were up, while there was a good entry in the children’s section.

Evelyn Anderson presented the trophies and received flowers from Helen Clyne of Hawick.

J. Speirs was presented with a certificate on the 50th anniversary of him judging Cheviot sheep at Roberton Show.
