In 2013 she bred the Welshpool sale champion Wayside U Bet, which went on to sell for 2000gns. We also offered three daughters of the Fairywater ewe at the Christmas Cracker sale in Carlisle, selling for 1800gns and 1500gns twice, while in 2014 she was the dam of a successful homebred gimmer which stood reserve champion at both Devon County and Royal Cornwall and third in a class of 86 shearlings at the Royal Welsh.
The English National Sale was the sourcing point for the next addition, which came in the form of the Stonebridge gimmer RSS1100093 for 5100gns. By Allanfauld Rockafella and out of a dam by Rascarrol Nightlife, she was reserve breed champion at Lincoln as a ewe lamb and was purchased on the strength of her family line having been impressed with full brothers who subsequently sold in Worcester for 5100gns and in Carlisle for 9500gns and 3800gns.
In 2012 we purchased one of the best females on offer from Malcolm Reid’s Kelso flock in the form of the 8500gns gimmer RMM1100434. By Kelso Pedro (by Douganhill Mcfly) she is out of a dam by the 110,000gns Newhill Major whose grand dam goes back to the famous 17,000gns Glenside ewe FPG05151.
We returned to Lanark in 2014 with a son of the Kelso ewe, Foxhillfarm Vinnie standing first Youth Development Programme Ram Lamb, going on to be reserve overall male champion and then selling for 900gns. At the same sale, one of Charlotte’s tup lambs, Wayside Victory, stood fourth YDP lamb and went on to sell for 1300gns. The Kelso ewe has consistently bred a number of impressive females for us and is one of the flock’s best flushing ewes.
Having built Texel numbers up gradually through our flushing programme, we offered a number of females from both flocks at the Solway and Tyne Club Sale in September 2016. Best of the day was a 1600gns sale for one from Charlotte’s Wayside flock, with this being a one-crop ewe by Strathbogie Terminator, out of an Ettrick Rainbow Warrior ewe. She sold to Charlie Boden for the Sportsmans flock, with Charlotte’s first in the ring the same way bred selling for 1500gns to Paul Delves, Churchstoke.
A two crop ewe from the Foxhill flock then sold at 1250gns, with this one being a Douganhill McFly daughter. She was bought by James Runciman and Sons, Galashiels, with Charlotte then selling a two-crop ewe the same was bred as the last at 1000gns to R Mitcheson, Belsay.
