Lambing 2013

Finally, I found some time to make a new post on this Blog. We had a good lambing so far. Very fine lambs out of Rhaeadr Ring a Ding, Ortum Fortnum, Ortum Starlight Express, Sitlow Stavanger, Ewebank Eurostorm, Ortum Nadal, Specop Sumo and ‘good old’ Bentley Jabulani. We will have many lambs, shearlings and ewes for sale in the coming months.

 

Stirling Sale report

The champion from yesterday’s pre-sale show at Stirling has led the trade this afternoon at 28,000gns. This was Robbie Wilson’s first lamb in, FNV 12:090, a son of Rookery Rooney and out of a dam by Lakeview Leeroy. He sold in a three way split to Geoff Biddulph, Pexhill, Chris and Sally Holmes, Rookery, and Iain and Judith Barbour, Solwaybank.

Next best at 20,000gns was one from George Stuart’s Birness flock, 1W 12:044 (lot 164), a son of Rhaeadr Giggsy out of a dam by Rhaeadr Flash Harry. This one was knocked down to Patrick Donnelly, Donrho.

At 18,000gns was Myfyr Evans’ last lamb in (lot 201). This son of Ardlea Arbennig, the 90,000gns breed record holder, is out of a dam by Baileys Brigadier the Second. He sold in a four way split, with equal shares in this lamb taken by Robbie Wilson, Strathisla, Mark Priestley, Limestone, Patrick Grant and the Suffern family.
