THE Harrisons of Moralee Herefords fame have just had their biggest win yet, at the Royal Welsh Show.

Moralee 1 Rebel Kicks is “just the right type of bull”, said Tom Harrison. “He’s got serious width, he’s well balanced, and he’s very good on his legs.”

This time round, the now 16-month-old picked up the breed Male Championship, before winning interbreed accolades as the Champion Native Breed Junior Bull and the Reserve Champion Overall Junior Bull.

Tom added: “We also had success as a team in the exhibitor-owned, interbreed Best Group Of At Least Three Animals competition, where we were reserve champions.

“So, we had our biggest win and most successful show ever at the Royal Welsh.”

Tom and wife Di duly added the Wenlock Challenge Cup and the Dendor Perpetual Challenge Trophy to Rebel Kicks’ already very respectable haul of silverware gleaned this season.

He was best in class, Male Champion and Reserve Champion at Northumberland County Show, Reserve Champion in the Junior Bull class and Reserve Best Pair (with his brother, Roland Rat) at the Royal Highland Show, and Champion Male at Stafford County Show.

The Royal Welsh is the highlight of the agricultural show season though and to win there, on the showground at Llanelwedd, was deeply gratifying, said Tom.

“We’re taking him to Bucks County Show on Thursday and then the national show at Moreton-in-Marsh after that.

“We would sell him for the right price, but the intention at the minute is to continue on the show circuit with him next year, because he’s still just a young bull.”
