Gorefield Show, Wisbeck, Cambs, 10 June 2023
Judith Rule & Luther, Just The Ticket Jurajska Gwiazda At Overbore, were at Gorefield Show with the Ronnie sheep. Judith told us that Luther had a great day, he certainly loves ice cream. They also met a gentleman who previously had a black curly, and got a little emotional when he saw Luther.

The love of a Curly will certainly do that to you….
