At the 2017 Leachman Spring Sale Dinner Lee Leachman surprised Richard Fuller by awarding him the 2017 Hairpin L award for …
“Outstanding vision and discipline spreading Leachman Stabiliser genetics in the UK and Europe.”
Richard has been a regular at the Spring sale over the past 20 years to get a feel of how the US Stabilizer programme is going and identify breeding lines that could be of value in the UK. On this trip Richard had been invited to speak at a technical seminar session on the Sunday afternoon as well as take in the normal duties of such a trip. Richard’s wife Fran came along for this trip so she could see what Richard does on his frequent US trips!
