Title: Skipton sale
Post by: RaisinHall Tamworths on September 01, 2012, 08:08:14 pm
Been to Skipton today to have a nosey round the rare breeds sale.  They sell pigs there but not many entered at all, prices were awful.  Sows in pig were selling for around 50.  There was a pen of Kune Kune weaners that sold for 2 each.
Some of the sheep were being given away, 11 for lambs  :-\ .  Can't remember what breed they were and they weren't very big but still  :(
There was a Fell pony, yearling filly who went for 280 but then there was two mini donkeys (very cute, me and Charlotte wanted them  ;D , OH just  ::)  and said naughty words  :rant: ) one went for 500 and the other was 400  :o .
We had gone to see a Hereford heifer, bids went upto 1250 for her and she didn't sell.  Typical the one thing we want is expensive!!
