Young Handler Competition

Description

Wednesday 12th June 2019

If you’ve ever seen people showing animals at a country show and thought that looked like fun or would just like to know about farm animals and how to look after them, then this could be an opportunity for you.

We are offering to train 3 children in how to handle and lead sheep and then when they’ve mastered the basics, enter the Young Handler Competition at this year’s New Forest Show on Thursday 1st August.

For children aged 6-11 (school years 1 – 6)

To enter, please send us a drawing, a poem or some interesting information you have found out about Shetland Sheep.

Please include your name, age, class and contact details with your entry and send it to us by Monday 24th June.
