Rene Stud

So here we are back at home sitting on the couch reflecting on what might of been.. Empty... is the word that comes to mind, feeling very empty & Disappointed.
All of us here at Rene Stud take huge pride in presenting our stock at the highest level and this year was going to be no different. This year was going to be the first year showing Charollais anywhere in Australia & along with our Poll Dorset's & White Suffolk's we took 45 sheep down to the Bendigo Sheep Show. Needless to say we are shattered not to be able to show our stock to the public for a 2nd year.
We are thinking of everyone involved & share your disappointment.

Heart breaking for you all. Can you please send me some info on your Charollais? carolyn@towrisheepcheeses.com.au

I was so disappointed I didn't get to catch up with you guys and have a look over the sheep. Will hopefully get up to your sale later in the year.

Very disappointing for everyone.

How did the whites scan up ?

Very disappointing for all involved. I was devastated hearing this news. For all exhibitors and for all those putting it all together.

Oohh, that is so dissapointing. Hugs

Yes it hurts
