SALE REPORT- CARLISLE MAY FAIR
SALE DATE – 26TH MAY 2023
A brace of lambs from Allen Short’s Derg Flock led the Blue Texel Sheep Society’s offering at Harrison and Hetherington’s May Fair Pedigree Sheep Sale on Friday, 26 May, when they sold for 1500gns and 1200gns.
With both of these selling to Richard and Jade Bett for their Yarburgh Flock near Louth, first up was Derg Hot Stuff (ET) at 1500gns. Her dam, the Saltire Blue Caveman-bred Derg Dakota, has already bred lambs to 4800gns while her sire, Drumard Ed, has bred shearling ewes to 20,000gns.
Next at 1200gns was another by Drumard Ed in the shape of Derg Hercules, a ram lamb out of Saltire Disco Diva, this time a daughter of Caryl’s Blue Captain from the flock near Strabane, Northern Ireland.
Hitting the 1100gns mark when one of many to sell to A Watson, Wigton, was Geraint Williams’ Dragon Daisy which sold with her Matt’s Galaxy-sired twin ewe lambs at foot. Daisy herself is by Dragon Buster while her dam is an imported Turbo Blue ewe from the flock near Llanwnnen, Lampeter.
Stasa Moyse from Westhill, Skene, sold the other four-figure entry when her Saltire Blue Honeybee (ET) sold to SP Herraty, Campbeltown, for 1000gns. Sired by Glan-Y-Mor Einstein, her dam is the Hackney Your Joking daughter, Saltire Blue Catch Me If You Can.
The next lot and another by the Glan-Y-Mor Einstein ram, Saltire Blue Hic Up (ET) heads to Heriot, Midlothian, with Gary Fleming for 850gns. Her dam is Saltire Blue Dolly Parton, a Caryl’s Blue Captain daughter.
At 800gns was the dearest of the ewe hoggs, Saltire Blue Glitzy, which sold to Aledander Crombie, Falkirk. Her pedigree features Matt’s Escobar on to Saltire Blue Beyonce, another by Hackney Your Joking.
Three from Russell Millen, Coleraine, County Londonderry, sold for 800gns apice. First and selling to CA Jessop and Son, Ashby Road, Coalville, was Knockmult Helen (ET), which is another by Drumard Ed but this time out of Derg Fantasy, a daughter of Saltire Blue Derek.
The next two both sold to A Watson, Wigton. Knockmult Heather (ET) is a full sister to Helen while Knockmult Harriet (ET) is again out of Derg Fantasy but this time by Cleenagh Fanbadadosey.
