Richaven Show Success!
The Richaven show team celebrated some great results at the 2012 National All Breeds Show.
New herd member Holmland Goldwyn Adeen won Champion Heifer in Milk before the senior classes saw wins from Richaven Goldwyn Squaw and Richaven Goldwyn Adrienne and a strong second for Richaven Goldwyn Irene behind the eventual breed champion.
Richaven Goldwyn Irene was tapped out as Reserve Breed Champion, with Richaven Goldwyn Adrienne in Honourable Mention spot.
Richaven also took Breeders Group for the third year running and Premier Breeder and Premier Exhibitor in the Senior section.
The second day was for youngstock and handlers - Dan won Champion Handler with Hannah as Honourable Mention! A great couple of days!
A big thanks to all the team for making this the best Richaven show team we have ever turned out!
We are now looking to improve our team again for Agriscot!
And congratulations to Mrs Caroline Andrews - our ever-present squaddie!
