Sadly my shetlands are currently too fat to show....... grass been growing like stink last 2 months and cows not pregnant so even strip grazing is failing to slow the weight gain .......    they really do grow on nothing!

Sorry, no excuse. It's called "being in show condition". Mine are fat too but I'm still entering.

Don't know how many Shetland cattle keepers are on here, but come on guys, get registered as an exhibitor and take part! Folk have put in a lot of work to get this of the ground - if it goes well, it could become an annual event, which would be great for breeders and the breed. :cow: :trophy: :cow: :fc:
