As the summer show season has come to an end for Foxhill, we’re now turning our attention to sale season and first up will be the Texels.
Following the Solway and Tyne Club Sale on the 5th September we will be offering our entire 2018-born gimmer portion of the Foxhill flock.
These gimmers are all by Midlock Youretheone, a tup shared with the Roxburgh and Brijon flocks. This multi award winning son of Midlock Wilson, a sire which is in turn by the 18,000gns Sportsmans Unbeatable, and is out of a dam by Douganhill Monarch, has been shown successfully in 2018 and 2019 and includes the following accolades:
Male champion Royal Highland Show

Reserve male champion Devon county Show
Reserve male champion Royal Welsh Show

Reserve male champion Devon County Show
The Lanark Texel sale will see Foxhill offer two exciting ram lambs, the first of which being Foxhillfarm Champion.
This one is by the 40,000gns Lanark 2018 champion, Haddo Balvennie, purchased in partnership with John Elliot, Roxburgh and Ken Hodge, Greenarch. Balvennie is by Clinterty Yuga Khan which has previously been champion at the Royal Highland Show last year and is out of an Ellen Valley Warlord daughter.
Champion is out of the 18,000gns BFE1707032, purchased from the Plasucha flock at Lanark last year after she stood female champion. This ET bred daughter of Eden Valley Wiz Kid is out of a dam by Garngour Upperclass and sold having previously stood fourth at the Royal Highland in 2018 and champion at Shropshire County Show.
She has been shown successfully this year winning the female and reserve breed championship at the Royal Highland Show (photographed below), reserve female champion at Royal Cornwall and first at Devon County Show.
With champion bloodlines on both sides, this lamb is not one to be missed!
