Foxhill Charollais ram lambs saw a top price of 6500gns at the Premier Show and Sale on Saturday in Worcester with Foxhill Bandit hitting the high notes for our pen.
By the privately purchased 15,000gns Logie Durno All Star, this one is out of a Rockvilla Ferrari daughter who is a full sister to the 3500gns Foxhill Wild Rose. Taking this one home to Aberdeenshire were Messrs Duncan of the Braemuir flock and Taylor Dalgarno for the Clackriach flock.
Next up for us was Foxhill Benedict, another All Star son, this time out of a Logie Durno Olympian daughter. At 4600gns, he was the pick of David Lewis, Pembroke and Gareth Lee, Calogale.
We then had two ram lambs at 1900gns, the first being Foxhill Balmoral which is a full ET brother to our pen leader. This one heads up to Ayrshire with R and J Andrew, while at the same money was another full brother, Foxhill Blackthorn, which sold to Steve Stamp, Highbridge, Somerset.
Our shearling rams saw a top price of 2500gns for the Thackwood U Corker son, Foxhill A-One. Out of a flashy Loanhead Triathlon daughter that won Honiton Show as a gimmer, this one was sold in partnership to Mitchel and Elizabeth Britten, Cavick and James Danforth, Lodgehill.
Next up at 1400gns was Foxhill All Star, a Rockvilla Ferrari son out of a Logie Durno Olympian daughter. This one is full brother to Foxhill Wild Rose and was knocked down to Geoff Biddulph. Just shy of that money at 1200gns was his full ET-bred brother Foxhill Astrix, selling to D C Davis. The same buyer bought Foxhill Aristocrat, a full brother to our shearling ram leader, for 800gns.
As well as selling lambs, we also acquired a new stock ram, the 10,000gns (second highest price on the day) Edstaston Beau Jangles from Robert and Jeanette Gregory. By Edstaston Amarillo, he’s out of a homebred female by Edstaston Shropshire Lad.
We’d like to thank Chrissy Davies for all his hard work trimming and presenting the lambs prior to sale and help on sale day, as well as Neville pitman and Russell Lee for their help at the sale. We’d also like to wish all buyers the very best of luck with their purchases. Foxhill Charollais females will be on offer later on in the season at the Saucy Sale.
