Champion Texel realises 5,000gns at Chelford #sheep365 #Texels

A gimmer from a pen sired by the 145,000gns Knap Vicious Sid from the Sportsmans flock of Boden and Davies, Stockport, took top honours in the pre-sale show.

Judge Richard Wilson, Appleby, chose the daughter of a homebred Milnbank Special One-sired ewe as his champion, before it sold for 5,000gns in-lamb to Strathbogie Whiplash, to the Morrison family, Ayrshire.

 

Its ET sister, also in-lamb to Whiplash, attached a bid of 3,700gns from P. Castle, Peterborough, while a gimmer from the Bradleys flock from Robert and Ryan Bradley, Barnoldswick, was next best at 2,600gns. A daughter of Tophill Union Jack, it sold in-lamb to Bryn-y-Coed Yogi Bear, to Richard Hughes, Anglesey.

 

Gordon and David Gray’s Ettrick flock, Selkirk, saw their consignment peak at 2,400gns, paid by D. Morrison, Ayrshire, for an Ettrick Sir Alan-sired gimmer in-lamb to Hallrig Y Not.

 

The reserve champion came from Peter and Rose Woof, Stainton, with an Anglezarke Uno-sired gimmer, out of a ewe by Sportsmans Tremendous. It later sold in-lamb to Hexel Wildcard, to G. Morrison, Banff, for 1,800gns.
