As the Dorper and White Dorper National Show and Sale concludes in Dubbo today, two familiar faces have been absent from the scene following the decision of Top Deck stud owners Frith and Allan Peters to retire.
Since the stud began 12 years ago, it has become synonymous with excellence.
At the Dubbo Show in May this year they took out the title of most successful exhibitor and won grand champion ewe.
"I will miss the highlights," Ms Peters said.
"There are highs and lows; there is a lot of life and death on a farm. It is really intense and everything else is always, in comparison, boring."
A well-known artist from the region, Ms Peters said she looked forward to spending more time painting.
"It will be a wonderful opportunity to paint because you just can't paint when you are working with sheep."
