It apparently poured with rain at Ardingly Sussex on the second day of the South of England Show, and judging had to be taken in side the sheds. Judge Colin Christophers who had been showing his Ayrshires at Wadebridge on Thursday, was back at Wadebridge on Saturday with the news that he had placed Hinxden Friday 8th as Reserve Supreme .
Friday 8th had been scored as H87 as a heifer and is a dtr of Four Winds Royal Delta and had been prepared and shown by Maxine Gray on behalf of Richard Manford. Maxine had also produced the Holstein Champion at the show.
Maxine has been in touch to say that Friday was also the winner of the Exhibitor Bred Championship (for the second year) and the Dairy Crest Super Cow Award (Production +Inspection) the first time a Guernsey has won this.
