Blue Texel rams peaked at 2,400gns and females at 1,250gns in the breed society’s Carlisle show and sale.

 

It was the supreme and male champion, Hackney Xtrovert, from Giles Hardman, Low Bands, Gloucestershire, which topped the sale, selling to R. Cooke, Abergavenny.

 

The shearling was bred by Tippetts and Williams and made the top price of 2,200gns in Worcester when they sold it as a lamb.

 

Mr Hardman had earlier been spending and made the top call in the female section when he paid 1,250gns for the reserve female champion, a shearling ewe from D.L. and B.W.H. Jones, Pencader, Carmarthen.

 

J.Orr and Partners, Carnwath, Lanark, paid 2,000gns for a February-born Nantyderri ram lamb from Rhys Cooke, Abergavenny. It is by Whatmore Walnut which topped Worcester in 2013.

 

Two rams made 1,000gns apiece. Adrian Richardson, Maguiresbridge, Co Fermanagh, sold his second-prize shearling ram to Messrs Alford, Cullompton, while the second-prize ram lamb from D.G. and M.H. Jones, Llangammarch Wells, Powys, was bought by P.C.V. Elliott, Penrith.

 

There were three bids at 1,000gns in the female section. Firstly, an imported 2013-born Dutch ewe from David Alexander, Galston, Ayrshire, went to G.B. Renfree, Liskeard, while a Blue Stone shearling ewe from Nina C. Smith, Shrewsbury, was bought by J. and E. Lyle, Leven, Fife.

 

The third was a served shearling from the Sams flock of Andrew and Sam Froggatt, Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire, which went to M.S.H. Benson, Pennington, Ulverston.
