Thanks, Feldar, she is a lovely ewe. Super manners as are most of ours. We do show locally but there are only a few flocks locally so they tend to get put in with "other continental breeds".
Last year we had them ignored at one show as they didn't finish as fast as Texels !! Had to point out to the judge that he was supposed to be judging breed standard not as butchers lambs !! Didn't go down too well.
 I think we have registered five to breed standard from this lambing and they will be up for sale. Surplus rams will go in the oven and we keep some ewes for crossbreeding as they produce lovely sweet meat without excess fat.
