The Black Isle Show always attracts a cracking line-up of quality livestock with bumper numbers of spectators to match and this year was no exception, with a near record breaking entry of sheep on display.

In all, this two-day show at Muir of Ord, saw in excess of 1000 head of sheep forward, which coupled with bumper numbers of native horses and cattle means it is a must do event for most in the North of Scotland.

History was made at this year’s event too when the best in the crofter’s section was crowned supreme sheep – the first time the champion from this section has taken the inter-breed honours in the show’s 182years.

Taking this section by storm was a hill-type North Country Cheviot three-crop ewe and one of only 130 ewes owned by Aly Robertson, Lairg, a fencer to trade, exhibiting here for the second time. She was bought at the late George Macleod’s Migdale dispersal last year.

“She’s a tremendous Northie gimmer with great skin, hair and character and she’s good on her legs. She’s not as far forward as some of the champions, but she’s a real hill-type Northie,” said Jimmy Thomson, the inter-breed sheep judge from Hownam Grange, Kelso.

A real star performer amongst the sheep, she was nevertheless beaten for the overall champion of champions trophy by the supreme horse, a multi-award winning Shetland pony, from Donna Lochtie, Dunning.

Overall champion of champions judges Jocky and Brenda McCallum, Mountrich, found their supreme in Mawcarse Lady Dionne, a nine-year-old mare by Hawkdale Dixie, that was overall champion at both the spring and summer breed shows.

Reserve overall was the supreme sheep, with the inter-breed cattle champion, a Simmental from the Green family from Corskie, Fochabers, tapped out as honourary reserve. This was the seven-year-old cow, Corskie Disco brought out by stockman Shaun Cumming and shown with twin born calves at foot. A daughter of Islavale Sabre, she was champion at both the Highland and New Deer.

Back amongst the sheep and Mr Thomson, found his reserve individual in a Charollais gimmer from Gregor and Bruce Ingram’s Loanhead flock from Logie Durno, Inverurie. First at the Royal Welsh, this Rhaeadr Orlando-sired entry also teamed up with the family’s reserve breed champion, a ewe by the same sire and a tup lamb to win the inter-breed group of three and reserve amongst the pairs.

The Ingrams also owned part of the winning inter-breed sheep pairs – awarded to the Suffolks which is made up of the male and female champion from each breed – with their breed champion, a home-bred two-shear ram and the reserve champion, a ewe from Louise McAuley.

Reserve in the groups of three were Blue Texels from Stuart and Wendy Hunter, West Cairnhill, Culsalmond, who were exhibiting in the any other breed section.

Best in Ross-shire was a home-bred two-crop Texel ewe by Knock Wurzel, from Philip Gill that was champion at Nairn, with the blue and white sash presented to the two-shear Beltex ram, Callacrag Chairman from Ben Reive on his first outing. He was bought privately and was shown by Kenny O’Connor.

There were more big wins for top commercial calf showing duo, Blair Duffton and Rebecca Stuart too when they scooped the reserve inter-breed beef honours, the supreme pairs and the overall group of three, judged by John Gordon, Wellheads, Huntly.

Reserve supreme amongst the beef was the well-known show heifer, I’ll be There, a 14-month-old Limousin cross heifer, that was bagging her fourth section championship to add to the other overall show and reserve overall titles at various events. For the pairs, she teamed up with the similarly aged Limousin cross heifer, Cinnamon, and for the groups of three with Dancing Queen.

Limousins from the Robertson family from Fodderletter, stood reserve in both the pairs and the threes.

Mr Gordon was also the judge for the Best in Ross-shire competition amongst the cattle. He found his winner here in a Limousin cross heifer from Iain Grant, Slattadale, which stood in front of the Beef Shorthorn cow, Lowther Sally, a multi-award winning nine-year-old cow from Eilidh Mackenzie, bought at the Smallburn dispersal.
