Showmanship can be defined by an effective presentation of your lamb.
You are judged on your ability to:
- Control your lamb
- Present your lamb
- Bring out its best characteristics
- Show out the faults of your lamb so they are less obvious to the judge
- MAKE YOUR LAMB LOOK ITS BEST
- Knowledge of your lamb and the sheep breed in general
With this in mind, you must commit yourself to hard work and practice in advance to arrive at the fair with a lamb that is well trained and groomed, and to have the confidence in yourself needed to compete successfully.
