Whitehart Texel gimmer hits 4700gns at Worcester on Saturday 11th August 2018
Sat 11 August 2018
Saturday’s (11th August) joint production sale from the Loosebeare, Whitehart and Hendre Texels flocks saw a 96% clearance and a top call of 4700gns paid for a gimmer from the Whitehart flock of Jim and Nicki Hartwright, Bromyard, Herefordshire, with others at 4200gns and 3600gns.
Leading the way was HWN1703337, a twin born daughter of the noted Loosebeare Voomer out of a dam by Humeston River Dance. This gimmer caught the eye of a number of breeders present, selling after a spirited bidding war to the Thomas family, Whitland, for their Onnen flock.
Following her at 4200gns was the best of the Loosebeare consignment from the Quick family in the form of QEL1707901, a daughter of the former Lanark champion Ballynahone Winner and out of a dam by Mossknowe United. This ET born shearling is from one of the best show families at Loosebeare and sold to Robin Orr and family for the Halbeath flock, Fife.
