Caitlin and Eleanor Grieve led their Dorset Horn animals to success, taking home the majority of the major ribbons.

Of Hillend Dorset Horn stud, Clarkes Hill, the Grieve family won both champion ram and ewe, as well as most successful exhibitor.

And it’s a breed that they are highly protective of, having been in their family since 1931.

Caitlin Grieve said while they might have reduced in popularity, they are still good doing sheep.

Ms Grieve said the champion ram was solid, with good conformation.

She said he stood out from a young age.

The ewe had similar characteristics, with a “good, feminine style”.

Both will be retained in the stud for breeding purposes.

Helen Sheehan, Moon River Dorset Horn stud, Romsey, won champion Dorset Horn lamb and reserve champion ram, with the same three month-old lamb.

The only show that the stud exhibits at, Ms Sheehan said it’s important to get out and showcase the breed.

She said the lamb was even and true to Dorset Horn type.
