McCartneys held their first sale of sheep dogs at Hay-on-Wye back in September 2005 and since that time have held two sales a year. The sales have proven to be very successful and are growing year on year. The auctioneer, Matthew Nicholls, has a keen and genuine interest in the training and working of sheepdogs, which has been a huge advantage in promoting the sales. McCartneys have also drafted in the help and support of a local and well versed trials man, who has been fundamental in setting up the field prior to the sale and ensuring the sheep are ready to be worked when the vendors enter the field. The field is almost perfect for the sale, allowing vendors to clearly illustrate the capability of their dog.
The site is located just outside Hay-on-Wye and is easily located just off the B4350 between Hay and Glasbury. If you require any further information regarding the sales please do not hesitate to contact the auctioneer at the Hay office on 01497 820 778.
