We were first encouraged to start showing by the many Jacob Society members we met at agricultural shows. We took our first tentative steps with two ewe lambs at a local show in the late summer of 1995.

Clipper was one of those two lambs and she and Yin, pictured here, have an excellent record of show success.

Yin did spectacularly well as a shearling, winning the breed championship at four of the six shows she entered in 1998. She continued to do well as a ewe in 1999 but has now retired gracefully from the show scene.

Clipper and Yin have both produced daughters who have carried on their success in the show ring.

Nutwood Isabella, sired by Woolpit Sebastian, had show success as a lamb in 1999, and matured to win many firsts, reserve championships and breed championships as a shearling in 2000.

 Nutwood Augusta shown as a lamb - 2000

Nutwood Augusta, sired by Woolpit Gus, was shown very succesfullyas a lamb in 2000. She was never out of the rosettes, including two reserve championships.

Unfortunately, Foot and Mouth Disease resulted in the cancellation of all livestock classes, in 2001. So our show sheep all had a year off from the limelight.

 Shows were back in 2002 and we were very pleased that Nutwood Augusta won Breed Champion at both the Shropshire & West Midland Show in June and The Royal Show in July. We also gained Reserve Female Champion at the Royal Welsh with Nutwood Odille, a shearling ewe. This was followed by Champion at Burwarton with Nutwood Gabrielle, a ewe lamb and Female Champion at Moreton in Marsh with Nutwood Tamara, another ewe lamb. This must be our most succesful year to date.

In 2003 Nutwood Anson, a shearling ram was Reserve Champion at both Stafford County and Shropshire and West Midlands Shows. Nutwood Brutus, a ram lamb, was awarded the Reserve Male Championship at the Royal Show.

Later Nutwood Lorelei, a ewe lamb was Reserve Champion at Ashby and Nutwood Pansy Potter was Reserve Champion at Moreton in Marsh.



 2004 was a quiet year, but in 2005 Nutwood Gryphon, a shearling ram, was Champion at Stafford County and Reserve Champion at Three Counties and Shropshire and West Midlands.

2006 was another quiet year, but in 2007 Nutwood Bogart, a superb ram lamb was fortunate to win the Championship at Stafford County, Reserve Championship at Shropshire and West Midlands.
He went on to be Male Champion and overall Reserve at The Royal Show.
