Royal Highland Show 2018

This year’s Royal Highland Show was another great success for the North Country Cheviot Society but even more so for one family, the Thomson family of Hownam Grange took the double in style, William (who is currently society president) claimed both Overall Champion & Reserve in the Hill section & Overall Champion in the Park section with his father Jim (Kelso flock) standing in reserve – a fabulous achievement, well done to them. The overall champion in the Hill section was Newbank Spitfire, a 4 shear ram purchased at Lockerbie in 2016 for £8000, he is by Keppoch 2427. Reserve champion was a second 4 shear ram, Keppoch 8024.
In the Park section it was a homebred gimmer by Gilson 11532 (who had stood second as a ewe lamb at the 2017 Royal Highland Show) which took the overall champion rosette for the Thomson’s. Reserve was a 2 shear ram, Ilamtops Valence by Carruthers Syd & out of a Ilamtops ewe by Synton Rambo, this ram was purchased at Lockerbie 2017 for £2000.
