Several big name breeders have just fought out a 32,000gns bidding battle to secure the lead lamb from John Mellin’s Hull House pen. This was Hull House Space Cowboy, a Castlecairn Red Arrow son out of a Castleknowe Matchmaker dam. Selling with an index of 233 he was eventually bought by John Forsyth, Glenside, having beat off competition from Robert Laird, Cambwell.
At 6000gns from the same flock was Hull House Socrates, another by Red Arrow and out of a Knock Orocco dam. This has an index of 262 and went to Craighead and Parkhouse.
