UK - The Great Yorkshire Show - Prize Winning Animals and their Owners.
Hillary Mattinson is the owner of Nettlesyke Kerryn, a shearling one-year-old Ryeland ewe. Nettlesyke Kerryn was named Champion Female Ryeland and has won a couple of other classes. Her husband, Alan, a long-distance lorry driver, helps with the sheep and goes to shows with her, (they stay in their 'old dilapidated caravan'). 'I remember one year it rained the day before and the sheep were outside. We were up till 3am trying to get them dry,' Hillary says. The Great Yorkshire Show, one of Britain's biggest agricultural shows, is famous for its competitive displays of livestock. The event, established in 1837, attracts over 125 000 visitors a year and has over 10 000 entries to its pedigree competitions ranging from pigeons and rabbits to bulls and shire horses.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
