Chugzy might be a “friendly and happy sheep” but her name gives away what kind of appetite she has.

At the Gore A&P Show on Saturday, Chugzy and her owner Mackenzie Maxwell (5), of Glenham, won first prize in the children’s under-6-years-old pet lamb section.

Mackenzie said she started caring for the texel cross orphan lamb in August.

She called the lamb Chugzy because she “drinks really fast”.

Now the lamb was weaned she had developed a taste for other food, not just grass.

“She eats wine biscuitst— she thinks they’re yummy.”

She had already eaten a packet during the show.

Chugzy also had a reputation for helping herself to other food she found, such as muesli bars and climbing into vehicles.

The pair were good friends and spent time together every day.

The best thing about Chugzy was “letting me hug her”, Mackenzie said.
