THE SHOW GOES ON
THE cancelling of Sheepvention and many other rural shows left many local farmers disappointed.
Preparing months in advance, sheep studs from around the district had already spent a huge amount of time preparing their best sheep in the hope of leaving their local show with a ribbon.
When the announcement was made that Sheepvention would be cancelled, no one was more disappointed than Cavendish’s Thomas sisters.
Seven-year-old Emma, and her older sisters Lexi (9) and Imogen (11) were devastated when COVID-19 forced the cancellation of their favourite shows and worked to convince mum, Kate, dad, Simon and poppy, Bob, a virtual show should take place.
