Well, there’s always a couple that are particularly special and NewPole Chalky White for me, Jools, was one of them. My very first solo show ring appearance at Devon County with a bovine, I was so nervous I started to go the wrong way round the ring (why, when I’d been showing dogs for years, I have no idea)! Phil was hissing at me “wrong way, wrong way” as he was in ring too with N. Chunky Monkey.. oh the embarrassment....🤫
However, last laugh was on me as me as Chalky won the class (Phil and Chunky were second 😂😂) and Chalky went on to have an extremely successful AI Stud bull career for Semex. His dam, Almeley Uvita is still here going strong and she has become the dam of many successful AI bulls for Genus.
Thanks to all at UK Sires Ltd for looking after the bull so well and letting me, on more than one occasion, have my Chalky ‘fix’, last time being just a few months ago.
That first show and below, Uvita earlier this evening..
