The first pen of sheep offered through the ring at the Suffolk sale at Edinburgh from Charles Proctor’s Conveth pen has certainly lived up to expectations with a raft of four figure bids coming from the ringside to claim the best of them.
Going at 5000gns was the second sheep sold, a son of the now legendary sire Strathisla Schumacher and out of a dam by Castlewellan Nutcracker.
And not to be outdone was the third entry, a Deveronside Whistleblower son, this one also made 5000gns when selling to Mr Leggat (not the auctioneer).
Next up at 4000gns was the fourth lamb in, another Schumacher son out of a Roseden Rock Star sired dam. This one went to Mr Walsh of Ireland.
