There are seven incredibly well bred lambs forward from Foxhill for this year’s Premier Sale at Worcester (2nd July), all originating from powerful female lines in the flock and all of which have fantastic conformation and carcass attributes.
First up for us is Foxhill 22XWY00739 (Lot 155). By the consistency breeding Thackwood U Corker and out of a dam by Crogham Hannibal II. The dam of this one is also the dam of the 16,000gns Foxhill VaVa Voom and the granny of our flashy shearling ewe that took the interbreed honours at the Bath and West Show last month. This is an opportunity not to miss, but if you do, his full ET-bred brother sells as Lot 159!
Next up are a pair of ET-brothers 22XWY00725 (Lot 156) and 22XWY00720 (lot 157). Again by U Corker and this time out of a Loanhead Triathlon daughter. The dam of these lambs is a stylish and powerful female who was interbreed champion at Honiton Show last year.
Later on in our second run you will find our next lamb in the form of Foxhill 22XWY00743 (Lot 223). By Rockvilla Ferrari, the sire of the interbreed champion from Bath and West and North Somerset Show, this one is out of a homebred female by Loanhead Triathlon. This lamb’s dam line is the same as the two shearling ewes we have entered in the sale (Lots 12 and 13). Ferrari has also bred tup lambs up to 3100gns for us last year.
Following him is Foxhill XWY00724 (lot 224), a full ET-bred brother to lots 156 and 157 and wrapping up our tup lamb offering is Foxhill 22XWY00778 (Lot 226), another by the great U Corker and out of a Logie Durno Olympian bred dam. This lamb has tremendous carcass attributes. The dam has bred a lamb to 3100gns and she is also the dam of our interbreed champion from North Somerset Show. The lamb’s maternal brother stood first at this year’s Bath and West Show. Lot 226 was also first prize lamb at Royal Cornwall show this year.
Please note lots 158 and 225 will not be forward at the sale.
