no catalogue for the rare breed section yet but includes 51 Jacobs, 56 Shetlands 11 unregistered hebrideans, Black Welsh Mountain, Ryeland, Dorset, Brearay ( assume it is boreray), north ronaldsay, etc  Also sale of 20 Dexter cattle - 10 dexter cows with calves at foot or in calf 1 pedigree bull, unregisterd heifers and bullocks

I went along for a nosey the hebs looked good some of the rams were spectacular with there great black curly horns. A good size sale of Jacobs and  Shetlands, I was very tempted by some Portland's but managed to keep my hands in my pockets. I have always liked dexter cattle and there was a few for sale some cows with calf at foot and been AId or run with the bull went for no money because the cows were very thin once again very tempted to take them home and get them right. Met a few TAS ers and had a good blether lovely people, all in all a good wee jaunt. Bring on next week. Scottish Smallholder & Growers Festival at Lanark.

Good crack as usual
