With a change of auctioneer in the box has come a change of pace and Mark Brommell is shifting along now, selling Willsbro Arms Butterfly (lot 30) a Diamond-Oak Armistead daughter out of Willsbro Toystory Butterfly, a VG88 dam, at 5600gns.

Her full sister, Willsbro Armstead Toy Butterfly then went through at 3200gns. And their full brother Willsbro Bravado, a May 2009-born bull calf went on to sell for 1500gns.

Another from the same dam, Willsbro Ross Butterfly, a Plain-O Durham Ross daughter, followed on and was sold at 3100gns.

A trio of embryos from the same dam and by Macomber O-Man Bogart was then offered and netted a 500gns apiece call.

Gradually we’re getting through this extensive catalogue and creeping closer to the most talked about lot of the day (lot 50) Willsbro Emilyann. But for now Mark Brommell is selling lot 35, Willsbro Jeeves Cotton, a Ked Outside Jeeves daughter out of Willsbro Shottle Cotton a VG85 dam for 2700gns.

After that came Willsbro Allen Crimson, a Magor Bolivia Allen daughter out of Ex93 dam Carlhaven Wade Crimson, a Parker Aero Wade daughter, which sold at 1600gns .
